Styling in Georgetown

The Gap All Wrong
The Gap All Wrong

The Gap All Wrong Many people believe that if one sticks to the basics in dressing, you cannot go wrong. But this is not always the case. This woman’s outfit is a classic example. Her khaki skirt is too long for her frame. The jean jacket is too short for the skirt and wrong for the high- necked top, and white socks and sneakers never go with a long skirt. My suggestion would be: A knee-length khaki skirt, a V-neck top, and jean jacket that hits the waist, with colored flats for a pop of color.

Lumber Jack This man must be from out of town, because everyone who is from D.C. knows you do not wear flannel and heavy jeans in August in D.C. It is just too hot. I guess he realized that he did not have right outfit on for the very hot day and that is why he walked the streets of DC with his flannel completely unbuttoned and open. Next time he is in town, I suggest he bring a tee shirt and shorts.

Style King The Streets of Georgetown party on Aug. 8 was all about “Old Fashion, New Look,” and Kevin Gray got it right. He was edgy, yet sophisticated in his royal blue Zara blazer, light blue Alton Lange shirt, light tan Zara pants and skinny colorfully striped tie from Aldo. Whiskey brown Aldo shoes completed this strong look.

Menswear Gets A Feminine Touch Adra Williams and Beth Webster are women who know how to get noticed at this men’s clothing store event. Williams surprised us all in her men’s Hickey Freeman jacket. She paired it with a wide black belt, black leggings and black heels by BCBG. Webster was super sexy in her red-hot dress from Banana Republic and red & white bowed heels from Nine West.

Master of Style Patrick Leugers was dressed to impress at Streets of Georgetown’s “Old Fashion, New Look” party. His navy blue Hickey Freeman blazer, white Polo pants, Brooks Brothers green and blue and white gingham shirt and brown Allen Edmonds shoes were on key with the night’s theme. His look has timeless appeal.

Old School Paul Beirne takes preppy to the next level at “Old Fashion, New Look.” I love how he put together his navy Breuer blazer, blue and grey Hugh & Crye shirt with rolled Unis khakis and white old-school Tretorns. Now, this is some comfort with style!

Are you that ignorant and stuck up???!!! The man in the flannel shirt is clearly homeless and is wearing whatever he has...notice the cart behind him carrying all his worldy possessions. Maybe there is a Brooks Brothers gignham shirt in there! Probsbly not. You guys are completely ridiculous and should be ashamed! Do the right thing and apologize for this total lack of couth and class. Your upscale readers will appreciate it.

How on earth did this item make it into your paper? The man is almost surely homeless. Where's the editorial oversight? A pithy, sharp-tongued style column would be a lovely addition to The Georgetowner. What you're running is nothing of the sort. It's poorly written and horribly edited, mean-spirited, and not at all smart or funny.

I do hope you plan to print an apology.
