Behind the Buy: What Boyds Is Loving for Fall

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


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: Boyds, Rittenhouse

The Look: Mugler.

The Trends: Faux fur (“in brilliant colors and new silhouettes”); relaxed pants with slouchy waists and inseams; leather details.

Label to Watch: Maison Ullens and Isabel Marant. “Both designers are new to the store and epitomize cool elegance.”

Best Buy: Leather leggings. “If you’ve been putting off purchasing these over the past few seasons, the time is now. They are the quickest way to update your closet this season. Try them under a dress or tunic shirt with a pointy heel. They also look great with flat ankle boots.”

The Accessory: Small cross-body bags and mini styles. Top sellers: Mansur Gavriel and Sophie Hulme (shown, $475).
