The Essential Guide to [Back to School] Shopping in Detroit
Whether you're going for a “new year, new me” wardrobe-revamp, or just want to add a few fresh pieces to your collection, you are sure to find something fabulous at these fashion hotspots!
FRIDA Frida is a boutique, in Midtown on the ground floor of the Park Shelton, known for their boho accessories, shoes, trinkets, and clothing. The store is reasonably priced for a boutique, most clothes are in the $40 - $90 range. It is a great place to get dresses and their kimono selection is on point. I love getting accessories from Frida, my most exciting purchase was an olive-felt, floppy hat.
DETROIT CLOTHING CIRCLE Detroit Clothing Circle is on the corner of Second and Alexandrine in a beautiful old house now renovated into a store front. The store feels like a trendy New York “studio” with wood floors and industrial fixtures to display clothing. The store sells a curated collection of resale clothing and accessories at an affordable price. Probably my personal favorite shop in the city, I can always count on finding a one of a kind piece at Detroit Clothing Circle.
DALLY IN THE ALLEY Be sure to bring some extra shopping cash to Dally in the Alley on Saturday, September 10th. The alley is lined with pop up shops selling all sorts of unique treasures. In years past I’ve gotten a $5 flannel, the perfect bell bottom overalls, and a stellar military jumpsuit. In addition to finding clothes you love, shopping at Dally supports the city’s entrepreneurs and ultimately helps the community flourish.
As we step into fall (and into new clothes) remember to shop local when possible, and enjoy the city’s growing fashion scene!
