In my MVC Form

                                    <div class="form-group">
                                        @Html.LabelFor(model => model.achPayDate, htmlAttributes: new { @class = "control-label col-md-7" })
                                        @Html.DisplayFor(model => model.achPayDate)                                        
                                    </div>

in my Model
         [DisplayName("Payment Date")]
        [DataType(DataType.Date)]
        public string achPayDate { get; set; }  

      (achPayDate -- is getting data from the web service)

my achPayDate =      2016-09-21T00:00:00-07:00  
and I wanted to format that to MM/dd/yyyy  so it is 09/21/2016.  

I tried

         [DisplayName("Payment Date")]
        [DataType(DataType.Date)]
        [DisplayFormat(DataFormatString=("{0:MM/dd/yyyy}"))]
        public string achPayDate { get; set; }  

which is not working
and tried

                                    <div class="form-group">
                                        @Html.LabelFor(model => model.achPayDate, htmlAttributes: new { @class = "control-label col-md-7" })
                                        @Html.DisplayFor(model => model.achPayDate, "{0:MM/dd/yyyy}")                                        
                                    </div>
and is not working

not sure what should I do

Here is what I did and it solved my problem

Found the answer myself!  Here is what I did

in the Model

        [DisplayName("Payment Date")]
        [DataType(DataType.Date)]
        [DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:MM/dd/yyyy}", ApplyFormatInEditMode = true)]
        public DateTime? achPayDate { get; set; }

and in the MVC form

                                    <div class="form-group">
                                        @Html.LabelFor(model => model.achPayDate, htmlAttributes: new { @class = "control-label col-md-7" })
                                        @Html.DisplayFor(model => model.achPayDate, new {@class="date"})                                        
                                    </div>
