Best of Washington 2012

1. Best for Kids and Moms-to-Be

Neither pregnancy nor toddlerhood lasts forever, so why spend a lot of money on clothes? Two boutiques, 529 Kids Consign and Wiggle Room, carry a range of brands and prices—from 7 For All Mankind to Lilly Pulitzer to the Gap—for both tots and moms. 529 Kids Consign, 112-A S. Royal St., Alexandria; 703-567-4518. Wiggle Room, 4924 Del Ray Ave., Bethesda; 301-656-5995.

2. For Power Moms

Current Boutique’s three area locations are frequented by stylish, successful working mothers. Stocked with high-end clothing and accessories by designers such as Trina Turk and Milly, Current sells trendy pieces without the couture price.
