1. Undeniable Boutique
A warehouse-style interior is the perfect setting for this
shop’s color-drenched, globally minded fashions. The creative work and
weekend wear will distinguish you from all the Lululemon-clad moms in the
carpool line. 11891 Grand Commons Ave., Fairfax; 703-327-4417.
Dudes who dig the rugged urban-woodsman look will love this
14th Street shop, where flannel shirts and chukka boots from heritage
brands such as Filson, Red Wing, and Pendleton cover industrial wooden
tables and clothing racks. 2216 14th St., NW; 202-518-3375.
3. Style Étoile
A suburban shopping center isn’t the place we’d expect to find

frocks and catwalk-worthy separates from Camilla and Marc, Nonoo, Cut25,
and Timo Weiland. 1701 Rockville Pike, Rockville;
