While the District’s never garnered the most fashionable reputation, we have to give credit where credit is due. D.C. hails a variety of people from the young to the beautiful, the intelligent and all that’s in between. These unique people bring a variety of style and fashion that ultimately fuel  the culture of the District. This column simply documents the different styles of those unique individuals who walk the city streets. As the great Alexander McQueen said himself, “It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.”

“I would describe my style as a mixture of laid-back and relaxed and classic and sophisticated. I take my inspiration from both European and American fashion trends I see on the streets, in magazines and fashion blogs. The hat is my absolute favorite summer accessory and represents my European style. I love the floral print on the flowing blouse which adds a boho vibe to the outfit.”

“I would describe my style as minimal and classic. Most of my closet is black, white and gold with the occasional pattern or atypical cut. More than anything, I like to express myself through jewelry– I’m drawn to pieces that emote a sense of the mystical or sacred.”

“I like to dress comfortably. Making my own pair of shorts out of old carpenter slacks and finding the perfect button-up printed shirts are my idea of summer comfort couture. I’d call it Miami Vice with 18 holes.”

“Growing up in the heart of rural Suffolk in England, my style is inspired by traditional country wear. I update by combining London street style trends, thus overall creating a boho chic look.”
