The District has its own sense of style, influenced by professionals that come from all over the world. DC’s style reflects metropolitan sensibilities with inspirations similar to those of other East Coast cities like New York as well as those from the West Coast like Los Angeles. That style sits alongside and more often than not is infused with traditional clothing aesthetics and classic americana. And DC’s hyper international and cosmopolitan nature ensures vibrancy with stylistic components inspired by and imported from Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and nearly every other point on the globe. As a first introduction to DC’s fashion scene, check out our list of seven DC area women’s clothing boutiques that you won’t find anywhere else.
