By Holley Simmons | May 23, 2018 | Lifestyle

These fresh additions to the Georgetown shopping scene prove that you can teach an old neighborhood new tricks.

COS

Just shy of 5,000-square-feet, this upscale offshoot of H&M is packed with mostly monochromatic basics with a postmodern twist. Think asymmetric sleeves and curiously placed ruffles. If you’re hoping to get stopped on the street by The Sartorialist, shop here. 1200 Wisconsin Ave. NW, cosstores.com

TRUNK AND DRAWER

Slipping out of a luxe, custom-made suit and into a pair of ratty PJs just feels wrong. That’s where Trunk an designer briefs and formal socks enhance the wardrobes of DC’s discerning men. 3109 M St. NW, trunkanddrawer.com

BRILLIANT EARTH

This shiny jewelry box in Cady’s Alley specializes in conflict-free gems that are sourced ethically and responsibly. The engagement rings are worth going gaga over, as is the vintage collection which includes rings set with aquamarine and yellow diamonds. 3332 Cady’s Alley NW, brilliantearth.com

ILLESTEVA

Blink and you may have missed the opening of this pop-up optical shop, whose frames have graced the mugs of Beyoncé, Gigi Hadid and Kourtney Kardashian. Crafted outside of Milan, the modernmeets- retro glasses are designed to flatter all face shapes and sizes. 3306 M St. NW, illesteva.com

PILLAR AND POST

This new antique shop nails the country-chic aesthetic, thanks to pristinely preserved vintage furniture (mahogany dressers, marble-top tables) and original oil paintings of bucolic scenery. A mix of modern-day accents rounds out the collection of curiosities. 1647 Wisconsin Ave. NW, pillarandpost.com

TAKE CARE

There’s no place for harmful chemicals in this all-natural beauty shop, where the focus is on plant-based—yet effective— brands for your skin, hair and home. Run by a local beauty junkie, Take Care’s bright and minimalistic interior reflects its ethos of purity. 1338 Wisconsin Ave. NW, takecareshopdc.com

AURATE

This all-gold (Au!) boutique specializes in jewelry that’s demure, yet demands attention. Founded by two Princeton grads, AUrate donates a book to a child in need with every purchase of one of their sharply designed pieces. 3263 M St. NW, auratenewyork.com

RAPHA

Cyclers of all levels can appreciate the variety of performance wear at this London-based shop with locations around the world. In addition to comfortable, hightech clothing, you’ll find quality riding gear, including leather goods and accessories. 3025 M St. NW, rapha.cc
