Washington DC is more than business suits and sensible shoes. DC’s hip, young professionals have a bold, independent, personal style, and our retail scene reflects their taste for NOT blending in with the crowd. That’s made DC a great shopping city filled with clothing, accessories and home furnishings that appeal to all tastes and pocketbooks.

Our Guide for Finding Retail Bliss in DC
Plan a DC shopping getaway now and enjoy finding unique gifts for everyone on your list without the holiday crowds.
Where to Shop for Over the Top!
NYC isn’t the only East Coast town offering ultra-luxe boutiques. You’ll find all your favorites here in DC at City Center or in Friendship Heights. Make a grand entrance in your new Jimmy Choo’s; buy a little bauble at Tiffany’s; accessorize with a new scarf or a statement tie at Hermes; attend the Washington Ballet in your Ferragamo ballet flats or Gucci loafers – and pick up an LV bag at Louis Vuitton to pack all of your new purchases for the trip home.
Prefer to find everything you need in the same place? DC’s high-end department stores rival 5th Avenue. Grab your shopping list and head to Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom’s Lord and Taylor or Macy’s.
Feet Firmly on the Ground
So you’re pragmatic and you prefer a bargain to a splurge. DC has great designer discounters that carry clothing, shoes, accessories and home furnishings. The stores are a little more crowded, and the help is a little less attentive, but the bottom line on your receipt will be worth it in the end.
Skipping along to your own Beat!
You never buy off the rack. It’s boring – and it doesn’t reflect your style. You dress to express rather than impress. Well, DC is your shopping town! The city is full of elegant, funky, one of a kind shops with unique collections that challenge conventional thought and create stand out looks.
Previously Owned? (We’re not telling …)
DC has a crazy-good consignment shop scene. This is an International city with great style and that’s reflected in the dozens of Second-Time-Around shops located throughout DC. For a really fun treat, spend an hour at Secondi in Dupont Circle. Rumor has it that Secondi is the favorite destination for diplomats who buy designer clothes, wear them once, and consign them to Secondi to help finance next season’s must-haves.
Is it Art – or Craft?
The Smithsonian Craft Fair in April and the Smithsonian Craft to Wear Show in October are much-anticipated annual events in DC. The beautiful furniture and jewelry at the Smithsonian Craft Fair will amaze and delight you. The colors, textures and unique styling of the clothing at the Smithsonian Craft to Wear show will leave you in a quandary. Should you hang your new garments in your closet – or on your living room wall?
Incredible Museum Shops – A Unique DC Shopping Experience
Have you ever traveled somewhere and thought, “Wow, I’ve never seen that before.” That’s exactly how you’ll feel when you walk into any of DC’s magnificent museum gift shops. Shop the Smithsonian Museums, or the National Gallery of Art, Hillwood and the Phillips Collection. Trust us! You WILL find the perfect gift for that person in your life who has everything.
