This season we are loving denim on denim. But instead of doing the tragic head-to-toe Canadian Tuxedo version like Britney and Justin at the American Music Awards (see below), the key is mixing washes.
Go for a chambray shirt on top (works because it is lighter in color and weight) with a dark skinny or fit-and-flare on the bottom. Feel free to experiment with silhouettes, but always think chic... it isn't 2001 anymore.
New Columbia Distillers, established in 2011, was DC's first craft distillery and made a home for itself in a 90-year-old warehouse on New York Ave. Their famed Green Hat Gin is a Washington born and bred spirit handmade in small batches.
The end result? A super-premium gin featuring a clear juniper nose, hints of citrus lightness and coriander spice, a vague recollection of root botanical earthiness, a subtle note of grains of paradise pepperiness, an herbal whisper of celery, and a rewarding complexity.
$35.99 at Potomac Wine & Spirits, Georgetown.
The Man in the Green Hat was George Cassiday, World War I vet turned Capitol Hill bootlegger. Over 10 years, Cassiday supplied bootleg liquor to 4 out of 5 lawmakers — and exposed the hypocrisy of a Congress flaunting the rules it imposed on America.
Prohibition saw the rise of U Street, the “Black Broadway,” with the Lincoln and Howard Theatres, Club Bengazi, and Ellington, Armstrong, Fitzgerald and Calloway headlining a Jazz Age and speakeasy culture that rivaled the Harlem Renaissance.

Like color, a print is an easy way to make a statement. And although we still love a spotted shoe or two, give that kitty a break this summer by freshening up your feet with a pop of print or a flirty floral.
Wear with a skinny jean for a casual chic look, or take it to work with a cropped pants-suit or a simple shift.
