A peek at what Philly’s top boutiques are showing this season.

Knit Wit

Welcome, officially and finally, to fall! While you’ve been Shore-ing, sunning and stealing every last bit of summer before it winds away, we’ve been digging head-first into the new season’s style offerings. And let me tell you: They are good. We asked Philly’s top shops to give us a peek at their fall buys. Every day, we’ll be breaking down the the styles they’re loving, the trends they’re featuring, and the pieces to add to your new-season shopping list. Happy shopping!

The Store: Knit Wit, Rittenhouse, Bryn Mawr and Margate

The Look: Dorothee Schumacher 

The Trends: “English classics with a twist—a mix of plaids, mini florals and stripes; ’70s-inspired clothing; berry hues; and heavy knits that create oversized sweaters, hats, mittens and scarves,” says owner Ann Gitter.

Label to Watch: Carven, R13, The Third Piece, Each x Other.

Best Buy: An updated black pant. “Our favorites are from Alexander Wang, A.L.C. and 3.1 Phillip Lim.” Shop Knit Wit’s selection here.
