Fashion veterans prefer not to simply survive August in DC. Instead we want to "slay" by consistently arriving perfectly coifed despite the heat index. Being the cool spot in the room requires some planning though. Obviously natural fibers help. But frosty libations imbibed just prior to wilting ensures that the 8 am you is still recognizable way past 10 pm. When in MidCity anytime between 11 am and 11:30 pm consider slow sipping a frozen strawberry swirl margarita: tequila back optional. Lauriol Plaza, 1835 18th St NW.
