The weather is yo-yoing between lovely and chilly, but there’s just enough spring in the air to get us yearning for new season fashion. Here are five stylish women’s clothing stores in Kitsilano where you can start scooping up spring style transition pieces.
5 Great Women’s Clothing Stores and Boutiques in Kitsilano
1. Wear Else
This uber chic boutique offers a definitive round up of influential and lesser known labels. While the prices are steep, this is the place to look for that one special item. And if it’s still out of your range, get inspired by the window displays and take advantage of their sales, which mean deep discounts on high end fashion.
2. XO Bella
It’s hard to identify a specific demographic when you browse the playful boho clothes at XO Bella. Women in their twenties love the store as much as the fifty plus crowd. With low prices, anyone can experiment with new season looks. The accessories section is super fun too, for a mid week or rainy day pick me up.
3. Judith & Charles
Now open on West 4h next to Gravity Pope, this Canadian company makes sharp professional ware for women who care about clean lines, luxurious fabrics and intricate detailing. The price tags reflect the care that goes into the garments. Their new spot on West 4th reflects the neighbourhood’s shift from hippie enclave to yuppie utopia.
Kitsilano has the flagship store for this local chain that champions the laid-back, West Coast aesthetic. A nice mix of in-house labels and internationally-known brands with a well-stocked denim bar are all at comfortably mid-range prices.
5. Gravity Pope
The real magic happens in the Gravity Pope shoe store, because let’s face it, shoes are the most important element of every outfit and this is perhaps the best shoe store in the entire city. Now matter ow long you spend trying on shoes, don’t miss out on the impeccably curated apparel in the boutique next door. Think Alexander Wang, Wings+Horns, Band of Outsiders and more snooty, beautiful, hard-to-find labels.
