Where to Shop in Washington DC for Back to School Fashion

Summer is drawing to a close, and that means one thing for kids across America – back to school!

Like many kids across the country, Washington DC kids are back for in-person school for the first time in what feels like forever. For many kids, it’s their first time seeing friends and teachers since spring of 2020! Most of us can remember the pressure we felt as kids to have that perfect back to school outfit on your first day, but imagine after a year of quarantine? Most of our little ones could use a whole new wardrobe. While there are tons of big name retailers in our neighborhood that specialize in kids’ clothing, we’re lucky enough to have a few in Washington DC that are one of a kind.

Check out one of these small businesses for you back to school shopping wardrobe.
