For these five DC trendsetters, fashion is more than what meets the eye.

TERESA FOSS-DEL ROSSO 
The owner of DC Elite Image and stepmother to three sons carries herself with confidence.

My approach to fashion is… it’s wearable art. If I love the way it looks and love the way it makes me feel, then I want to express myself by wearing it. When it comes to social causes… I’ve fallen in love with Reformation. [The brand] puts sustainability in the core of everything it does. I am drawn to… designers who celebrate a woman’s figure. My style story is… I’m a pretty introverted person. I’ve learned to be more social because of my business. Fashion has always been a way to appear more confident without actually saying anything. I feel fabulous when I wear... an item that has movement when I walk, like a gorgeous, long wrap dress with a high slit. I always splurge on... designer handbags—an Hermès Birkin is next. My best style advice is... dress for yourself. Be unique; be adventurous; don’t be afraid to try new things.
