The Stylish Boutiques
Take a walk on D.C.’s stylish side, starting with souvenir hunting at Proper Topper
, a milliner-turned-gift emporium with a quirky kids’ section. Nearby, Tabletop
, a design-forward décor haven, stocks graphic-patterned furnishings—ceramics, pillows, and candles—by Jonathan Adler and Marimekko. For more apartment therapy, head to Salt & Sundry
, where the shelves teem with globally-sourced home goods like Moroccan leather poufs and olivewood cheese knives from the Pyrenees. Monochromes and minimalism dominate the hangers at Redeem
, a locally owned boutique that showcases emerging designers from all over the world. At Read Wall
, a socially conscious menswear store (proceeds from sales are directed towards education initiatives in Africa), you’ll find a preppy selection of American-made chinos, wax jackets and cotton polos, in addition to made-to-measure suits.
