As the seasons change in Boston, so, too, do the sartorial choices of the residents of the busy Seaport neighborhood. The temperatures are dropping, and the cold-weather fashions are on full display, from cozy coats to stylish yet practical boots to comfy sweaters. In and around Seaport, you'll find plenty of options for shopping — no matter what your tastes. And there are myriad choices for fashionable looks, whether you're snuggled up in the den of the Seaport homes at NEMA Boston, going out on the town to have a socially distanced lunch, or doing even more shopping on Newbury Street.
Here are some of the choicest spots to add to your wintertime wardrobe.
This first thing you'll need to battle the frosty late-fall and winter weather is a good coat. And there’s hardly a better place to get one than the iconic New England purveyor of all things outdoors: L.L. Bean. You'll find all the cold-weather essentials you need in this well-stocked store — just a 10-minute walk from NEMA Boston. Don't forget to pick up some gloves and a pair of L.L. Bean’s duck boots, necessities for any Bostonian in the winter.
Once you have your outer layer ready, it's time to think about what's underneath. Level-up your fashion game with classic shirts and pants from J. Crew. Or, try Brooks Brothers for a form-fitting cardigan or a luxe cashmere cable-knit sweater to give you a sleek look, whether it’s apres ski at the lodge or apres work curled up on the sofa gazing at Boston Harbor through the floor-to-ceiling windows at NEMA Boston.
Luxe Leisure is a Boston-based store that brings together some of the best designers and fashion companies in one expertly curated and conveniently located shop. Peruse the casual elegance of Flynn Skye's jumpsuits and neutral basics, the hip designs of Free People, or even the exquisitely exotic skincare accoutrements from Mount Lai. Customize your look with assistance from one of Luxe Leisure's personal stylists, and take advantage of their "same-day" Boston delivery for the ultimate in convenience.
For a sustainable shopping experience, Covet Boston is a popular consignment shop in Southie and Beacon Hill. Fashionistas who want to offload some of their wardrobe can drop it off here after making an appointment. This is also the place to pick up one-of-a-kind pieces, including sneakers from Alexander Wang or a vintage bag by Fendi.
Men who want to look their best both at home and in the office should take a quick stroll to Bonobos, where they are sure to find perfectly fitting pants, as well as everyday items like button-downs, T-shirts, and even pajamas that are ideal for wintry days. For those more dressy occasions, Mr. Sid’s on-site tailored suits are some of the best you can get — and they’re right in the heart of the Boston Seaport.
At NEMA Boston, it's easy to find your fashions close to home.
