DCist street style hilarity - Page 2

post #16 of 44
Ive currently live in Foggy Bottom. Over the past 3.5 years, Ive lived in Foggy Bottom, Georgetown, and Cleveland park. Ive been all over the place and no one is dressed well. However many poeple who go to school around here think they do, but I dont think wearing Rock and Republic jeans with Ed hardy tee shirts and diesel shoes qualifies. Neither does Bape sweatshirts with multi-colored dunks(the people who wear these think there the trendiest).
Also, girls here cant dress worth shit. I came back from NYC on a thursday night once and was petrified how the girls here looked compared to NYC. It just seems like every girl here dresses the same exact way. Jeans nd a black top and it doesnt change. Theres no sense of style in that.

Amen, guys. I've been in DC for the past couple years, and my friends and I play a game where we try to spot the maximum number of girls wearing the "uniform"--a black top and lightly distressed jeans. They even added the black coat this winter! It is truly astounding once you start paying attention, but this is probably the standard outfit for around 60% of girls in DC, especially for a night out.

Ha! What's amazing is you just described my ex from DC. Must have been oblivious to it.

No, I believe you. It's amazing what alcohol will do to your memory of hanging out with other Hill rats around Adams Morgan... and your standards for such.

The "uniform" here in Chicago for college girls is sweatpants tucked into Uggs and a gray hoodie with their college's name on it. Can we bring back Sevens and black tank tops please?

Washington isn't a very fashionable or particularly stylish city.

I once went out to Eyebar at the invitation of a friend and was turned away for wearing sneakers (a pair of Marc Jacobs Vans). When asked about the dress code the hostess told me that they only allow "Diesels" and "vintage Pumas". Had to laugh aloud about that while I walked away.

I'm second to no one when it comes to bashing DC, but to be fair there are plenty of neighborhoods in NYC where the aforementioned outfit is standard on women (and men aren't much more creative). I think it's sort of the default Eastern seaboard young white professional look...

Besides, swap out the jeans and you're not all that far from many dudes here, myself usually included; you can post a tee, selvage denims and Vans and get a round of "nice fits" in WAYWN...

Too true. I have a friend on "the list" (What's up with a list to get into a bar? This ain't NYC.) who keeps telling me that we should go to Smith Point to meet women. I'm thinking that I may have too much melanin to get past the bouncer.

Yeah, maybe I shouldn't throw stones--the guy in the harrington/chucks isn't too terrible, though the hair and tie aren't helping.

I guess I'm just spoiled by the Sartorialist, who finds great stuff, takes good pics, and pretty much lets them speak for themselves. Then again, he gets flown around the world to fashion centers, has top-notch equipment, and has 20 years of experience at some level in the clothing industry.

Anything beats going to penn state and seeing girls in a sweatpants and sweatshirts... they could look so much better.

That eyebar incident is kind of sad. I got into eyebar wearing converses. They were all black though so maybe they didnt notice em. I dont like to where nice shoes to clubs or bars as they get screwed up, stepped on. The floors are so nasty there. Or I whip out the black gucci lace ups. I dont care if they get fucked up

but yea dc sucks
and the sartorialist has spoiled everyone, girls around here cant dress as well as some of the ones on there ever in there lives

hey...you don't have to live WITH these girls in Foggy Bottom. It's been said, but I'll say it again...girls can't dress for shit. You think they're unstylish when they're out at night? You should see them during the daytime. Too many Ugg/sweatpants/fur jackets/ugly sunglasses/tights. It's like hell, except worse.
