In the magazine world, the September issue is the most anticipated arrival of the year. It’s the unofficial first look at this season’s fashion trends and predictions for the upcoming year. It’s the issue fashionistas can’t wait to get their hands on. So it is with much excitement that we present you, dear reader, with our own localized Fashion Issue—​Potomac-style. For our annual fall fashion photo shoot, we went to ​Gym and Tonic at Park Potomac! We had so much fun with these amazing ladies; we just had to put them on the cover!

Nader Lofti of Salon Nader sat down with us after reopening his new and sleeker location at Wildwood Shopping Center. What’s an outfit without a hairstyle? Nader offers great tips for creating and maintaining healthy hair and much more.

Inspiration for trends is at any age. If your wardrobe is in need of “Function & Flair,” check out our Trend Setter department as the Chevy Chase Nina McLemore Boutique has it all.

Whether or not you consider yourself a fashionista, your personal style is a reflection of your personality, lifestyle and taste. Just ask Merry-Go-Round resident Maria Jordan about her line of Renaissance Jewelry for the modern women in our Local Limelight section. We’re always looking for ways to put our best foot forward.

Happy fall, Potomac!
