Supporting Trends and Neighbors

So many Michigan-based retailers depend on our support.

Shopping Locally for Winter Fashion

Life is crazy these days, and shopping for clothes can be low on the list of priorities. But so many Michigan-based retailers depend on our support.

From fuzzy cardigans to extra-long fringe and the return of puff sleeves, just because we’re not shopping as much in person right now doesn’t mean designers have stopped creating new trends for the upcoming season.

Maybe you are making an appearance at a small holiday event or looking for fashion-forward gift ideas. If you aren’t comfortable shopping in person, you can still support local businesses by shopping online. Even some of smaller local retailers have fantastic websites with lots of options and a great online presence to accommodate their shoppers.

A great example is Retail Therapy, a women’s clothing store in Old Town Lansing, which offers an upscale collection of everything from clothes to shoes and sunglasses. Its collection is very well-curated, and you can easily find one-of-a-kind pieces and simple basics to add to your wardrobe. It also has great pictures of the store’s clothes online, which makes shopping online simple and easy.

Another great choice located in the heart of our capital is Kositchek’s Menswear. It has a beautiful collection of business and casual clothes for all occasions.

Those are just examples. A simple web search will show you so many local retailers you can visit online.

Remember to shop local and support these retailers. We need them here, and they need us now.

Like Miuccia Prada once said, “What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts go so fast. Fashion is instant language.”
