We’ve heard it before—shop local! Locally owned boutiques are thriving, and we have quite a few good ones here in Boston. Here are some shops that will fit a variety of budgets and styles. – Martini Severin

The title says it all. This is the place to buy the building blocks of your wardrobe. The prices are a bit high, but these are investment pieces that you will have tailored (this is complimentary) to fit your frame.

Add a little street style and funk to your wardrobe. Karmaloop can be considered for a younger crowd, but there’s something in here for everyone. What’s more, they carry brands like Crooks and Society that can be hard to find in Boston.

This here, my friends, is the mother of vintage clothing in Boston. These clothes are in great condition, the staff is friendly…it’s like shopping in a relative’s closet. The only thing that would make the experience better is if the clothes were free. Don’t you worry though, the prices are very reasonable.
