Even though the temperature is still below freezing, there’s no harm in day-dreaming about the floral dresses and bright colors that go hand-in-hand with perfect spring weather. As January comes to a close, it’s time to start thinking about prepping your closet for the change of season. Here, five Philadelphia-based boutiques to help spruce up your wardrobe for the coming spring sunshine.
Street style meets luxury at this Amsterdam-based brand boutique that opened its doors to Philadelphians last year. Lightweight leather jackets and pyjama blazers that line the racks allow for business casual style, while graphic tees and simple a-line dresses give the store a more casual flare. Look for the vibrantly colored trousers and playfully patterned blouses for a perfect spring wardrobe addition.1705 Walnut St., 215.910.4948
