2005 Best Women's Clothing, Martha's Vineyard


For years, island style was defined by Lilly Pulitzer’s pastels and preppy products, and a woman was hard-pressed to find anything edgier. Today the tide is turning with Chica, a style-savvy clothing and accessories shop. The owners keep current by stocking the shelves with Yoana Baraschi beaded cocktail dresses, Johnny Was embroidered tops, and a chic shoe selection.
