Washington's answer to New York City's Fifth Avenue, this tony stretch of stores along the border between the District and Maryland is where the capital's boldface names outfit themselves in fashion's biggest labels. Dior, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci all have outposts here, as do Cartier, Tiffany. and Bulgari. Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, and Lord & Taylor are represented, too, but gala-bound shoppers prefer the 120-year-old Saks Jandel for its selection of formal evening wear from designers such as Yves Saint Laurent and Carolina Herrera. The younger D.C. trendsetters gravitate to the more casual mens- and womenswear (Opening Ceremony, Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone) at Barneys Co-Op.—Colleen Clark
