We Heart STL: Best Boutiques
When it comes to stylish specialty spots to shop, theres a lot to love in STL.
Best Women’s Boutique: Vie
Vie is our hands-down go-to for looks with a stylish edge—and full credit goes to owner Melodie Tauben, who has an eye for fabulous. From chic workwear looks by Alice + Olivia, sassy cocktail dresses by Nicole Miller and a wide variety of stylish “paint the town” pieces, Vie has more than earned its spot as the sophisticated fashionista’s favorite one-stop shop. Ladue, 314.997.0124.
Best Men’s Shop: East + West
East + West has a vibe all of its own, and St. Louis’ stylish guys have taken note. Brands ranging from Baldwin Denim and Collection to Vans perfectly represent the store’s aesthetic: easygoing, pulled-together and practical. And then there’s the variety of items for men: clothing, shoes, accessories, books and men’s grooming products—many of which are made in the USA. Kirkwood, 314.835.1419.
Best Celebrity Style-Stalking: Ivy Hill Boutique
Customers need not worry: Ivy Hill Boutique’s official move from the Central West End to Colonial Marketplace in Ladue hasn’t changed the store’s affinity for standout celeb style. In fact, owner Hillary Dutcher’s Ladue locale now carries even more of the paparazzi-worthy brands you love, including House of Harlow, Trina Turk and Plenty by Tracy Reese. Ladue, 314.721.7004.
Best Shopping in the City: 10denza
STL’s stylish set has been flocking to 10denza since its opening in 2011, and it’s easy to see why: Its selection of merchandise includes a roster of brands that aren’t your average fare, from Moods of Norway to LNA. The locally owned store is also known for its offering of pop culture extras like techie accessories and books, and its posh interior has to be one of our favorites in town. Central West End, 314.361.1010.
Best Free People Finds: BLUSH Boutique
BLUSH Boutique is stocked to the brim with fun, bohemian looks that include brands like Wildfox and Gentle Fawn, but it’s their selection of Free People finds that have us coming back for more. From jackets and jeans to tribal tops and hug-me knits, you’ll find top picks from this carefree brand that inspire the on-point style of BLUSH’s owner, Sarah King. Kirkwood, 314.965.4411.
