Usually centered around politics, DC has always garnered a pretty dry reputation. I started Citizens of DC with the idea of creating an outlet that showcased DC as the transient melting pot it truly is. By recording these interesting people in their everyday commutes throughout life, I attempt to capture their style and the developing trends on the street. These are the citizens of DC…
“I can’t live without fashion, but I ain’t following the trends. I wear whatever I feel like. I am a “Trendsetter”.
T-Shirt by Urban Outfitters, jeans from Korea, shoes by Red Wing, vintage jacket and H&M accessories.
“What I wear is mostly influenced by comfort and functionality. My wardrobe is filled with mix and matchable monochrome pieces”
Overalls by Ralph Lauren, thrifted shirt, Baileys hat, Chuck Taylor sneakers, H&M mitch-match socks, vintage Ray Bans, Casio calculator watch.
“My style is pretty subdued. For me, it’s all about crafting a cool silhouette and not going over the top on any one piece.”
Coat by Topman, frames by Warby Parker and hat by Stussy.
“I’m a Virgo so I like to look put together, but not predictable.”
Scarf from American Apparel, Savers blazer, shoes from a church basement sale and H&M pants.
“I’m inspired by internet culture and bold graphics, specifically when bright colors are paired with lots of black.”
Michael Kors bag, dress Rue 21, jacket by Max Jeans, and thrifted shoes.
