Best of Boston

2016 Best Women's Boutique, North

Nine Streets

New York transplant and former magazine editor Esther de Hollander curates an on-trend, off-the-beaten-path selection of clothing and accessories with just the right amount of wearable New England charm: classically but not cloyingly pretty, comfortable but not careless. Look for cult favorites such as Ace & Jig, Ilana Kohn, and Loup Charmant, plus interesting jewelry from upstarts like Meyelo, made by and benefiting Kenyan artisans.
