Fashion sense: Show us your street style

Stereotypes of frumpy bureaucrats in endless streams of gray suits and Ann Taylor cardigan sets have long plagued the city.

But the reality on D.C. streets tell a different story — from high-waisted jeans and bangles on H Street to urban ensembles on U and form-fitted sheaths on K. Journalists, bloggers and fashionistas have documented it.

The Post’s Alexandra Garcia illustrated the eclectic and nuanced style of the distinct neighborhoods of the city in the video series Scene In.

Likewise, Style fashion writers gave voice to the artistic and expressive population of Washington by chronicling individual street styles.

D.C. is far from the only city to embrace the pret-a-porter side of fashion. Bill Cunningham and Scott Schuman (a.k.a. The Sartorialist) have given us a peek into New York. Garance Dore gives us the sidewalks of Paris.

Now, we want to see street fashion from your point of view. Submit your photos of unique trends, distinct pieces or timeless garments that define ready-to-wear styles. Create a user account or log in and upload your pictures to our street style gallery.
