Hello Boutique, New Haven
For over 30 years, Hello Boutique has been keeping Elm City fashionistas on their toes, and they’re hardly slowing down. Among the 20 lines of fabulousness such as Bryn Walker, Beau-jour, and Flax, we found these all purpose dress-em’-up, dress-em’ down, must-have cotton shirts – like who couldn’t use one, hello? The crinkly cotton and oversize styling are just right for transition; paired with a linen bottom for now, a Ponte legging for later. Made in the USA by Tulip, they’re a solid investment at $98 to $100. We’re looking forward to Margaret O’Leary’s luxurious Irish knits, and fans of high-end designer Raquel Allegra will love Annie Turbin’s stretchy tie-dye tops at much gentler price points. For folks on the go, just about everything in the shop is the right mix of comfort, and style for easy-breezy packing. Currently prepping for fall, the sale racks are hot with some uber deals. Tip: Check the back of the shop; their collection of slickers will have you praying for rain.
