Local Gift Giving For The Fashion-Minded

Asheville Fashion

The holiday season is officially here! Our great town has an abundance of local shops that offer great gifts for everyone on your “Naughty and Nice” list! From the foodies, beer lovers, art lovers, coffee lovers and outdoorsy people there are plenty of options, but don’t forget about the fashionistas on your list. This past weekend I went out to a bunch of local boutiques to round up my favorites and what you can buy at each locally owned boutique.

I made my rounds to the ever popular Union. Union is a really great boutique because it not only offers the latest in fashions for women, but for men also. Union is very trendy yet almost minimalist. The blouses and dresses I saw on the racks were perfect for styling on their own which are great pieces to have in anyone’s wardrobe. I also found some really great quality hats and very simple jewelry. Union is a bit on the pricier side so these will be splurge gifts.

Minx is a favorite downtown. Minx is very trendy and offers everything any fashionista would want. From piko tops, lavish dresses, unique one of a kind jewelry pieces and vintage inspired shoes. Minx even has a new boutique that offers small housewares that would also make perfect gifts for anyone. Minx has a wide price range so you could surely find something for someone on your list.

My favorite spot I ventured in to was Virtue. Virtue offers trendy dresses, tops, vest, coats and layering pieces. Their jewelry selection is really quirky and boho and most pieces were under $20.00. Virtue is a great place to cross of the fashionistas because everything is great quality and also really affordable.
