A new wave of jeans counters is offering a huge selection of up-and-coming lines - in addition to our favorite, we'll-never-take-these-off standbys.
Part vintage store, part '50s kitsch shop, this winding bungalow encourages serious browsing. Wander around and discover sexy bandanna-print skirts by owner Katy K ($90), and belt buckles with hokey sayings like pig farmers bring home the bacon ($15).
Affordable, trendy clothing labels favored by college students—Miss Sixty, Hard Tail, Habitual, and Parasuco among them—are found in abundance at this hyacinth-hued shop. Accessories receive equal billing: Local designer Suzanne Myers' gypsyish silver wire hoops, thickly stacked with onyx-black stones ($36) are a swift seller, along with the very Martha's Vineyard-style, lobster-painted Dr. Scholls by Kiss My Feet ($125).
It can be tricky to find this boutique since it's technically part of the Green Hills Mall but can only be accessed from an outside entrance. Clean, crisp garments with a slightly preppy twist are in stock this season, including cotton Lilly Pulitzer-like pants by Govango featuring prints of elephants ($124) and cotton strapless dresses by Ruth depicting images of the Eiffel Tower ($128).
Saturated with colorful merchandise, this boutique offers so many affordable trinkets, it's nearly impossible to exit without making multiple purchases. Not to worry, though, because even if you load up on, say, a bunch of painted-metal Indian bracelets ($3), a pair of polka-dotted tin cups ($12), a set of retro drink coasters ($6), and a lime-green tooled-leather purse ($48), your total would only be $69.
Whatever key trends turn up each season, shoppers are guaranteed to find every single one at this cramped yet cozy shop. Currently, sailor pants, eyelet frocks, and peasant tops by such labels as Lauren Moffat, Rebecca Taylor, and Sharagano occupy the racks and shelves.
Cushy slipcovered chairs and nautical ephemera set a casual tone for the abundance of cute clothing at the ever-welcoming L.A. Fairchild. Its new, nearby spin-off denim bar presents 35-plus brands of jeans in a rugged, saloonish space—it even offers draft beer to thirsty shoppers, freshly tapped from the in-house keg.
After years of living in the West Indies, American-born proprietor Annelisa Gee has learned a thing or two about how to dress stylishly for the tropics. With Terra, she offers countless covetable interpretations of the bright top/breezy dress/floaty skirt wardrobe that's the unofficial uniform of St. Bart's, with takes on each by names like Aoyama Itchome, Miguelina, and Graham Kandiah.
