CFAE has been on the hunt for some of the best and most accessible trends for F/W 2017, and we believe we have found them. Staying true to our mission, we hit the mean streets of DC and identified three independently owned boutiques that represent the best fashion as seen perusing the streets of the nation’s capital.

An institution among the DC “IT” crowd, Lettie Gooch works within an aesthetic that is eclectic and creative with surprises of color that never disappoint. A DC retail pioneer with more than 10 years in the game, Theresa Watts, owner of Lettie Gooch has amazing sense of what’s hot and of the moment making her a perfect forecaster for what’s next.

HU’S WEAR2906 M St NW

Another DC independent retail heavyweight is HU’s Wear located in the heart of historic Georgetown. Since opening their doors, owner Marlena Hu has proven to DC’s fashion glitterati that Washington is more than politics. Marlena has done more than raise the fashion bar she has started a fashion revolution. Who knew brands like Valentino and Kenzo could co-exist comfortably in a city where conservatism reigns supreme.
