Your Best China

With all due respect, that closet of yours is looking a little, well, predictable.

Seriously: Does the world really need another newsboy cap-wearing woman with her jeans cuffed? Wouldn’t it just be a breath of fresh fashion air to stroll through your Friday night wearing something that induces intrigue rather than yawns?

For all that, look to the East. More specifically, to China Chic Boutique.

As part of the Festival of China, the Kennedy Center is staging the temporary boutique with clothes and accessories by famous and lesser-known Chinese designers. Check out the gold lamé hobo bag by Amy Chan, the Han Feng tube scarves, or the Yeohlee silver tank. You’ll even find dog coats by cutting-edge design team Blanc de Chine and books on chic by the beloved Vivienne Tam.

Just the kind of pieces you just know are going to turn heads.

See? Told you you were predictable.
