Periodically, I travel to Boston for work and when I’m there I always set aside a few hours to stroll down Newbury St. For those of you who haven’t been there, Boston is a cute mixture of both a cosmopolitan city and a New England town- and Newbury reflects that by housing some of the biggest fashion names (Armani, Chanel, Loro Piana) in two-story brick walk-ups along it’s tree lined street. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a fantastic undergroud store called Stil and was immediately enchanted by all the pieces I saw and tried on. Stil markets itself as a concept store providing distinctive clothing- both “fashion forward yet conservative, edgy yet understated, tastful and tantalizing.” Betty Riaz, the owner, stocks Stil predominately with Scandivanian designers that are new to the US market so the customer knows that she is purchasing a hard-to-find item. With such a finely selected and limited inventory collection, I’m sure the Stil fashionista will be hesitant to reveal where she purchased her beautiful clothing… but some secrets are too good not to share!
Stil is located at 170 Newbury St. between Dartmouth & Exeter.
