Elevated Style and Quality.
Perfect Fit. Great Price.
Who Says You Can’t Have It All...
It’s Real Fashion, but Crafted Like Couture
From sketch to prototype to final product, we craft our pieces with the same approach as the world’s design houses. Our onsite design studios give us the edge—there we create curated collections in the highest quality fabrics with intricate details and a tailor-made feel. The only thing missing is the designer price tag.
It’s Putting Together Your Signature Style
Work, weekend, whatever—each piece in our collection is designed with versatility in mind. Our expert stylists will show you how to get more mileage from everything you wear. Plus they’re always here to help with not only transforming your closet and tracking down that one elusive item, but also being available before or after working hours because we know that more time is priceless.
It’s a Fit that's Far Superior to our Competitors
We take fit seriously. Our collections undergo a series of rigorous tests to ensure the fabric fits real women’s bodies. Each piece is worn, washed and tweaked to perfection—from seam to hem to hardware—no detail is overlooked. The end result is clothing that moves effortlessly with women’s on-the-go, multifaceted lives.
It’s a Price that Surprises in a Good Way
We believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality for price. Value is a given with everything we do. Case in point, 90% of our collection is machine washable. It’s the price we pay to give you what you want…without the sticker shock.
We are Committed to Empowering Women
We’ve seen the influence of unity and know that together we can make a difference. This philosophy of togetherness–as a business alongside our customers and associates–is the foundation of our philanthropy.
We proudly support organizations on a national and local level that encourage, empower and support all women.
We began as two small Baltimore, Maryland neighborhood boutiques
The White House, opened in 1985, and Black Market, opened in 1995—both founded for and run by women. The vision for each was to be a special, personal style destination for women everywhere.
In 1997, the two stores became one and White House Black Market was born. We’ve grown since then, but women and their on-the-go, multifaceted lives continue to inspire us. We’re dedicated to redefining luxury every day with elevated style and quality, exceptional service, perfect fit and great price.
