As you’re out and about this week — whether at official DC Fashion Week events or just hanging at your usual happy hour spot — keep your eyes open and your smartphones handy. If you see a look you like, take a snapshot with Instagram and use the hashtag #DCFW in your photo caption, and we’ll pick some of our favorite shots to appear below. We want to capture the diversity of D.C. personal style, so feel free to take photos of whatever speaks to you.

Keep in mind that by using the #DCFW hashtag, you acknowledge that you took the photo and give us permission to use it on our Web site and in print. Happy DC Fashion Week, and let the photographing begin!

The Going Out Guide is on Instagram, too (our user name is goingoutguide). Follow us for more photos from events, the cocktails we’re drinking now and more.
