Accessorize Yourself in Downtown Coral Gables

Even for those of us who aren’t going “back to school” there is a certain kind of itch for change, a kind of craving for newness at the end of the summer season. Having spent the past few months wearing your breeziest pieces over and over, your closet might be feeling a bit dull. Instead of diving into a whole new wardrobe for the fall, because, as we all know, there’s not much of a need for trench coats and scarves around here, consider investing in some new accessories for that style refresher you’re craving.

No matter your price point, there is an accessory, or two, for you to find right here in Downtown Coral Gables’ boutiques. Consider taking a stroll through these boutiques and more and picking up a few pieces that will make your handy favorites, and some goodies stuffed in the back of the closet, feel new again.

Habit, a chic little boutique on Andalusia beloved by local fashionistas, has transitional staples to take you into fall, with our sunny Florida weather in mind. Don’t stop at a new little black dress or jumpsuit, add a trendy new cuff or a pair of statement earrings to your purchase.

At My Best Friend’s Closet you’ll feel like you’re shopping in… well, your dream best friend’s closet. Entering this stylish boutique is like walking into the closet you wish your best friend had; there are endless options for accessible ways to up your style ante. Add a studded crossbody bag, a pair of Quay sunglasses and shop their selection of hair accessories, the latest trend to come back in style. A new fragrance can trick you into feeling like everything old is new again, shop a selection of perfumes by TokyoMilk to feel totally refreshed.

Men, we didn’t forget about you – head to Pepi Bertini for a fine selection of small goods that will give your day-to-day or special occasion wardrobe a boost. Shop their expertly curated, excellent quality belts, ties, suspenders, cufflinks, and more for everything from a smart business casual look to something special for a wedding to remember.

A touch of Italian glamour is always in season, shop the collection at Italian Eyewear on Aragon for a lens that will totally elevate your look. As the exclusive retailers of Porta Romana sunglasses, you’ll always find a pair of glasses that are distinct and unique. Ask their expert team for help selecting the right glasses for your face shape and lifestyle or walk in and browse until a pair speak to you.

At Trend Boutique you can take a more literal approach to back-to-school shopping and upgrade your lunchbox game. They carry a stylish perforated lunchbox that is insulated and easy to clean. It’s available in berry and sweet pink. Packing your lunch just got a bit more fun!
