dapperQ has joined forces with international lesbian-identified DJ Whitney Day to produce our third New York Fashion Week (NYFW) event (RSVP here), featuring fashion photography of 17 artists who captured images for our He Said/We Said series.

In our invitation, we posted the following:


It’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW), so we hope to see you representing queer style HARD. We will be giving away one free raffle ticket until 11pm to those dressed in dapper attire (feminine, masculine, and anywhere in between or outside of!).

Since publishing the invitation, readers have approached or sent e-mails to the dapperQ staff stating that they do not know what feminine dapper looks like. So, for those who need a little inspiration and some sartorial schooling, we’ve rounded up some examples (classic, modern, hipster, and futuristic) for you.
