When it comes to fashion, NYC is the central hub for all your sartorial needs. It’s known for high fashion from 5th avenue to fast fashion in SoHo. However, NYC is also home to some of the best boutiques in the biz. While it might take a little more digging to find these gems on the island, trust when we say they’re worth the trek. Below are some of the best shoppable places in NYC.


Weekend plans? 🌾🛍

Your beloved online retail shop, The RealReal, opened a brick-and-mortar store in SoHo and it’s everything you could want when it comes to consignment. Not only do you have the ability to shop your heart out, you can also bring your own items in to be valued by a gemologist, horologist, or a handbag specialist. Or, if you want to learn something new, you can join one of their NYC workshops where they teach you how to authenticate luxury items.

First brunch, then this. #EverlaneIRL

When we didn’t think Everlane could bring anymore good into the world, they surprised us yet again. Luckily, for us, they decided to open their first brick-and-mortar store in the heart of Nolita. Everlane Prince is the cool kid-approved store of your dreams thanks to its minimalistic design and swoon-worthy clothing items. Plus, they have an integrated I.D. system that allows you to return items from online and shop without your wallet.

Edun is another online retail space that decided to join the brick-and-mortar community with their first-ever NYC store in Soho. Just like Edun’s sustainable clothing items, parts of the store is made from reusable tiles and marbles. However, the fun doesn’t stop there. In addition to their items, they also house art from South African artist Lisa Firer and a fitting room doors are made from a Congo-native tree. Ultimately, this store pays homage to Africa in all the right ways.

Whether you’re a francophile or you just really dig stripe T’s (don’t we all?), you’ll want to trek down to Elizabeth Street to Sézane’s new store — conveniently called L’appartement New York — to get your paws on a few French-inspired items. This place has everything: from a lifestyle selection to a café where you can enjoy coffee and treats from Maman. Essentially, this is a store you’ll never want to leave — and why would you?

However, if you’re thinking of getting rid of a few things and living the low-waste life, you may want to visit Package Free Shop. Created by Lauren Singer, who popularized the zero waste movement, Package Free Shop is the one-stop shop for anyone who’s looking to minimize their everyday life. Lookin’ for a metal razor? Need a bamboo toothbrush or a charcoal soap bar? PFS has these items and more.

While we can talk about fashion all day long, there’s nothing like walking into a furniture store — especially when it involves a chic cafe and flower shop. Roman and Williams Guild is an oasis in the heart of lower Manhattan. When you shop for your new love seat, you can also explore their library, order a crepe, smell the flowers from the shop, or just lounge on a couch in sitting area of their 7,000-foot flagship store. Who says shopping has to be stressful?
