By WL Staff

We asked for your best outfits, and you delivered. Here, one of three winners from our online Best-Dressed Contest. Click here to see the photos that won us over.
Full name: William Perry DuBose IV
Age: Would you believe 38? Actually, I turned 54 on Sunday, December 2
Occupation: Financial planner. I have my own practice in McLean in which I provide financial planning and retirement services to independent women.
Briefly describe your style: Classic and traditional with a little flair added in
Favorite designer/brand, both past and present: Ralph Lauren
Article of clothing you can’t live without: Pocket square!
I would never wear: Extra baggy jeans or a baseball cap turned backwards
Worst fashion faux pas: I’ve tried to forget the 70s!
Style in Washington, D.C. is: Classic, but a little boring. However, it has come a long way over the years.
A trend you can’t wait to try: I’m the worst person to ask this as I am always slow to act or change. I really want/need a classic leather jacket.
A trend you can do without: Skinny pants. I’ve never been skinny in my life and I don’t anticipate I will be skinny any time soon. Besides, we all need a little room to move around in, don’t we??
Admit it, have you ever worn crocs? No, never! Honest!
You’ve overslept, but still need to look fresh and fabulous. Your go-to quick outfit: As a guy, I can get away with wearing a hat to cover my unkempt hair, go with a day’s growth of beard, and with just throwing on a clean shirt and jeans. (Right??)
