727 South 4th Street, Queen Village
Elena Brennan’s charming Queen Village accessory boutique is stocked with some of the coolest shoes and accessories in the city. You’ll find mostly women’s shoes (all are a bit whimsical — no pin-thin stilettos here — from brands like United Nude, All Black and Jeffrey Campbell), though there is a decent selection for the guys, too. London-born Brennan also peppers well-priced accessories — jewelry, bags, socks — throughout her Queen Village shop, giving it a healthy dose of British quirk appeal. (Photo by Courtney Apple)

This Bella Vista corner shop is part boutique, part workshop. Here, Anna Bario and Page Neal handcraft their ethically sourced jewelry, which ranges from everyday (tiny sliced sapphire studs, a thin hammered gold bangle) to special-occasion (some of the most gorgeous, simple engagement rings and wedding bands we’ve seen) to completely custom (they’ll work with heirloom stones, and can source diamonds and gemstones for your project). Visit their Bella Vista accessory shop for delicate, always classic pieces.

754 South 4th Street, Queen Village
This sprawling, eco-conscious Queen Village boutique packs in a bit of everything — vintage clothing and accessories, home furnishings, gift items, and handcrafted jewelry. Owner Chelsea Pearce sells her own line of jewelry, mostly sculptural brass pieces with a boho bent, alongside pieces from other artisans. All accessories at this Queen Village store have a distinctly earthy feel (stones, bark, leather tassels), yet none of it falls victim to dated, hippie tendencies.
535 South Street, Queen Village
It’s all menswear here, with a rugged, heritage feel. But alongside a selection of limited-edition selvedge denim, Pendleton tops and artisanal beard oil, the Queen Village store also stocks a thoughtful range of accessories. Go here for well-built boots by Red Wing and Wolverine, dapper wing tips by Alden (plus all the polish and leather care products you need to take care of them), and all manner of gloves, hats, socks, scarves, bags and more, from brands like Pendelton, Filson, Faribault and Barbour.

Bella Vista Vintage
613 Bainbridge Street, Bella Vista
Formerly known as 1600 Below Vintage (and located in the basement of Reliable Floor Covering), this Bella Vista vintage shop has moved on — and, literally, up — to its own storefront. This is great news for you, as there’s more room to shop owner Maria’s stellar, and well-curated, selection of vintage clothing and accessories. You’ll find amazing purses here, as well as shoes, jewelry (think chunky rhinestone cuffs), pins, stoles, hats and gloves, all of which makes it one of the best accessories shops around.
