    We admit it: We have a major weakness for fast-fashion chains from other countries. Zara, H&M, Uniqlo, Mango, Topshop, Sportsgirl — they're all pretty high up on our go-to list when we need great basics. So, naturally, we're giddy with anticipation for the new Massimo Dutti outpost to open in Georgetown on Friday. The Spanish brand (and sister company to Zara) launched an e-commerce site and a U.S. flagship store in Manhattan last month, and in this case, we totally don't mind being second runner-up to NYC.

    Basics are the name of the game here — think classic, figure-flattering dresses with modern tweaks, a serious cache of leather jackets, and some of the best looking boots we've seen in ages. Prices generally range from $25 to $500, and while items are a little more expensive here than they are at Zara, we're flat-out obsessed with most of what we've spotted. Ahead, six insanely smart buys you'll want to scoop at Friday's grand opening celebration — if you can get to 'em before we do.

    Where: 1220 Wisconsin Avenue NW; no phone.
