Horse Boutique

Horse Boutique is the antidote to the neighborhood's highly preppy shops, coming off like the neighborhood bad girl with its sea of navy, gray and black designer duds, better suited for a night in the city than a night on the water. Announced by a bold neon-orange sign on a hectic stretch of Main Street, the boutique carries a highly curated list of small labels -- and a few big ones, including Cynthia Vincent and Tibi -- that even D.C. shoppers might only find online.
