Where to Shop for Sweater Weather Season

5th November 2020

A fall chill is in the air and that means one thing: sweater weather! While there may not be as many fall festivals and fire pit gatherings as we usually see around this time of year, there’s still plenty of reason to treat yourself to some new fall threads. It’s been a tough year for everyone and some retail therapy is always a great way to burn off stress and reward yourself. There are lots of options right near your The Victor apartment where you can grab sweaters and much more.

If you’re looking for lots of selection, cross the bridge over to the Old City. While the neighborhood, just 10 minutes from your The Victor apartment, is known for its history, it’s also a bustling retail district. Within just a few blocks, you can find dozens of apparel shops for both men and women, many of which are independently owned. Much of the district was shut down to shoppers for a considerable portion of this year, but most have reopened their doors to socially distanced shoppers, so don your mask and head into Old City to invest your fall shopping dollars right into the community.

For women, check out Fashion De Viv, which sells a wide range of fashion, jewelry and even home goods crafted by socially conscious artisans. Unfortunately, longtime favorite women’s boutique Smak Parlour has decided to close its doors after November, so head over now to take advantage of extensive closing sales. Men can get suited at Charlie’s Jeans, featuring lots of different denim styles and fall sweaters to pair them with.

This fall may not feel the same as it always does, but the feeling of some comfy, new additions to your wardrobe will be just as exciting!
