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 am an overzealous lover of life and I can imagine no better day than prancing through an open air market, forging through my favorite consignment shop, drinking rich steaming coffee, and eating deliciously prepared farm-to-table food. Rather than filling my walls with art, I like to leave my closet door open.”
Rebecca is a fashion blogger and personal stylist; you can check out her blog here.

“My style comes from my love of being different. Getting dressed to me is like painting a piece: you don’t force it, you just feel it and let it come naturally. I don’t follow trends, I create my own style”

“My clothing oddly resembles 19th-and-20th-century upholstery, which I know probably sounds gag-worthy, but there’s something about muted roses, velvet and warm tones that I always find inspiring and fresh. It can be the middle of spring and you’ll probably still find me sporting burgundy lips.”

“My style is focused around a few good statement clothing pieces and accessories, which I build around. Sometimes these statement pieces are worth investing a bit more in, since they often lend the interesting detail that personalizes and brings out the character of the wearer. I am also inspired by my sister, she has an eye for unexpected combinations, details, and is extremely versatile.”

“I guess style to me is everything or anything you feel at the time, with the opportunity to express it without using words. I love old dress shoes and denim. It’s like saying, “I used to care.”
