Fashion lovers in Miami always struggle with Fall wardrobe. We would love to wear our sleek leather jackets, but the weather is muy caliente to pull it off. Seriously – we all know you are sweating under there – it’s not cute. Luckily, our local boutiques rescue Miami fashionistas with great fall-spiration! They carry the latest fashions and have a meticulous eye for great Miami pieces that transition seamlessly from season to season. Plus there is nothing I love more than stimulating our local economy through my shopping addiction. It’s fashionable to support your local businesses and here are 5 that will ensure you look your best this Fall.
Market in South Miami
Birkenstocks are back and no one integrates these tree hugger shoes into a wardrobe better than Market in South Miami. This Miami boutique integrates NYC music festival chic with cool hues and soft fabrics – perfect for a Miami fall fashion fix. Their instagram account is full of fall fashion ideas. They are new to the hood and I am thrilled that they quickly became a top 5 in my fashion file.
Unika Coconut Grove
This Coconut Grove staple boutique has been my go-to for a last minute fashion fix. I love strolling the Grove and Unika is one of first stops after brunch at Greenstreet. Their displays house a mix of high-end designers with local flare. Perfect for any fashionista looking for inspiration without breaking the bank. There is something for everyone – including your #MCM. Your boo will love that their men’s section is full of the hottest trends and in case he’s not in the mood to shop – comfy seats are available while he waits.
Isa Boutique Coral Gables
I found my favorite pair of jeans at Isa after trying on several pairs, the friendly staff nudged me in the right direction. My bootie is grateful because I have yet to find another pair quite the same. Isa carries the latest fashion and for the practical shopper – they have great transition pieces. Its a great spot tucked away near the Mile.
Frankie. South Beach
If clothes are a drug then Frankie would be my dealer of choice. There is nothing more quintessentially Sunday than downing a few mimosas at Ice Box then walking over to Frankie and getting a quick fix. It’s my favorite boutique on the beach because these gals truly capture the essence of Miami gals without compromising high fashion.
And finally, something for the man in your life. Because no true fashionista turns her eye away from any accessory including her boo! OFY in Brickell is the perfect stop for the Miami dude. They have a vast assortment of shoes and dress shirts. My favorite display is their collection of leather bracelets.
So don’t be daunted with Fall this year. Check out your local boutiques for new pieces to inspire your fall wardrobe. Afterall, we need to represent our hottest style in order to distinguish ourselves from the snowbirds.
