Fashonistas will find their place on Newbury Street in Boston. Extending from Arlington Street to Massachusetts Avenue, Newbury Street is home to the best clothing boutiques in Boston. You'll find everything from top retailers to designer stores and local retail shops lining the brownstone street. Betsy Johnson, Donna Karan, Valentino and Marc Jacobs found homes on Newbury among smaller, local boutiques like Shreve, Crump & Lowe (jewelry) and Crush, a casual, contemporary clothing store for women featuring various designers.

If you're looking for something truly unique, head into the Seaport District and visit Louis Boston, a high-end clothing store for both men and women.

No matter what neighborhood you're shopping in, you'll find clothing boutiques in Boston with unique selections, personality and, most importantly, style.
Strolling around Beacon Hill? Try Holiday, Crush, Moxie or Wish, all of which feature new and contemporary designers and styles. And definitely don’t miss North River Outfitter. It may sound like a sporting goods store, but this preppy boutique features designers like Tory Burch, Joie, Lilly Pulitzer, Milly, Nanette Lepore and more. It’s also got a great selection of menswear and a quirky assortment of home décor.
Newbury Street, also known as the epicenter of Boston shopping, is home to some of the city’s best-known boutiques. Alan Bilzerian is a world-class shopping experience, stocking a one-of-a-kind selection of haute couture and hard-to-find European and Japanese designers like Ann Demeulemeester, Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto,Oliver Theyskens and Issey Miyake. For another only-in-Boston experience, be sure to check out the “leggings bar” at Boston-based designer Daniela Corte’s eponymous shop.
Even South Boston has great options for shopping. Stop by Ku De Ta on West Broadway for casual contemporary labels like Free People, Joe’s Jeans and House of Harlow, or for a more upscale experience, head to Louis Boston in the Seaport, one of the city’s most famous shopping destinations.
