Located in the heart of Midtown, Nomad is known for its collection of hats, dresses, sweaters and sunglasses. The store is sectioned off by colors so that it’s an easy way to find the pieces that are most you. You can order online from them or shop them in person! New items are constantly coming in so you’ll always be sure to find the coolest threads at Nomad.
The newest clothing shop in Reno is nestled between a bakery and a coffee shop and is big city chic. Full of on-trend items, neutral colors and tons of classic accessories, Sittie + Sage carries everything that is currently “in.” Be sure to swing by and check out the racks of cute clothes and ask the owner the story about how she named her shop!
Created by a local graphic designer who specializes in custom invitations, the With Love From Reno clothing line was born out of true love for our city. The simple black & white designs of tees, stickers, mugs, onesies, sweatshirts and more, are all you need to show your pride in this city and state. You can order online through the Pretty Little Paper Company’s Etsy store, or pick up locally at Larkellen, Hello Yoga and Hollylocks.
Think a food truck, but instead of being filled with treats, it’s filled with clothing and accessories so you can treat yo’ self! BLFT is a pop-up fashion boutique on wheels that hosts private events and is full of unique and trendy items that you won’t find anywhere else. The owner, Britton, also collaborates with local vendors to bring you special buying dates, so check out her Instagram for where she’ll be next!
Beautification and shopping? Sounds like the perfect combo to me. Wink Lash is not only an eyelash bar that specializes in eyelash extensions but is also home to a spa-themed shop in the front of their store. Full of the essentials for a spa day at home, like robes and body lotion, they are the perfect stop for grabbing your BFF (or yourself) a gift that keeps on giving!
