Dresses make everything easier and make a statement on their own. They are currently obsessing over corduroy dresses, not only because of the vintage vibes but also because they offer perfect warmth. Pair with booties, and you’ll be ready to hit the town or the rolling hills for apple picking!


You’ll also want to pack layering staples – sweaters, vest/cardigan, one pair of jeans, statement pants, and besides booties, some comfortable yet stylish sneakers for all the inevitable walking. Here in D.C., we take pride in looking nice even when casual. Dressy tops with embroidered details, bold statement pieces, or chunky knit sweaters are your best bet when pairing with staple denim jeans.

Dressing Preppy

We also tend to be on the preppier side of things, so plaid skirts, scarves, or jackets will give you all the proper east coast vibes! Top it all off with a hat, and you’re golden.

D.C. is an absolute gem, especially in the fall; it’s magic! You can’t help but feel inspired as you walk amongst the historic streets, translating into how you dress and present yourself. You can’t help but feel the city’s energy full of people who are so smart, active, passionate, and full-on go-getters. You can’t help but leave feeling inspired and taking a piece of the city along with you. We are so excited to have you come!
