Vancouver-based and a local favourite, Aritizia has been the go-to boutique for stylish young denizens since first opening in 1984. This Canadian fashion empire is always a good bet when it comes to finding the perfect dress for the holiday season. Known for their simple-yet-timeless styles and luxe fabrics, Aritzia has plenty of pieces that are sure to be on-trend and last longer than only one season.
Founded in Vancouver, this well-known Canadian brand has made a name for itself at home and in the U.S. Aritzia is known for its cozy knits, gorgeous silks and luxurious accessories. They do have a mid-to-high price point, so invest in more classic pieces (think sweaters, pants, blazers). My favourite purchase from here has been an Aritzia x Mackage leather jacket that just gets softer with age.
This innovative downtown women’s fashion boutique carries on-trend and high quality jeans from exclusive brand names. They also offer a complimentary personal denim appointment for advice on fits and fades. The Robson Street Aritzia store, while sophisticated and welcoming, also has a casual lounge-like atmosphere for a relaxing shopping experience.
