Berets, like this one from La Macón, are eternally in style.

Think Seattle's not a fashion city? Tell that to all the Seattle-based brands making it big. Faris designer jewelry: designed in Seattle, carried in boutiques around the world. Girlfriend Collective: a small local company dreaming up the planet's favorite sustainable athleisure. Prairie Underground: leading the way in breezy, sustainable fashion since 2004.

Not to mention all the sartorial Seattleites stomping down these rainy streets in heels and berets and Miu Miu sunnies no matter the weather. Sound like someone you know? Read on.

We turn to LA-based shoe brand Intentionally Blank for all our trendy-but-timeless shoe needs—a role fit for this classic patent leather block-heel bootie in a marigold yellow we hope will bring out the sun. Ballard shoe store Re-Soul stocks plenty more from the brand, including the grass-green Romi sandal ($212).

$195

Sometimes Seattleites just want to wear fuzzy jackets. Silhouettes made for hiking deny them this pleasure. This open-front beauty does not.

$498

Image: Wolf Circus

The border's open , so we're considering Vancouver, BC thoroughly local. The stretch is worth it for this modern rendition on the most classic of necklaces, crafted from perfectly imperfect freshwater pearls.

Bianca One-Shoulder Dress, Girlfriend Collective

$88

Little black dress, but make it out of leggings. Seattle sustainable athleisure brand Girlfriend Collective stocks this one-shoulder, unitard-lined athletic dress in four colors from sizes XXS to 6XL—but word to the wise, colors and sizes sell out frequently.

$98

Get a clue: A pleated skirt is a year-round wardrobe staple. (Worried about making it weather-appropriate in Seattle's chillier seasons? Gift with a virtually indestructible pair of Sheertex tights, currently $49—not local, just awesome.)

Pastel Lines Slides Pack, Chunks Local

$20

Image: Chunks

Chunks slid into our lives in 2019; they've held fast ever since thanks to a rotating selection of claw clips, headbands, and precious squiggle clips—all designed in Seattle and proudly made in China.

Tach Melody Crochet Cardigan, Pipe and Row Local

$285

Image: Pipe and Row

Ugly sweaters are so 2010s. These days, standout sweaters make a more serious fashion statement with unapologetically out-there colorways and craft-inspired crochet, no goofy thrift-store patterns required.

Miu Miu 53mm Irregular Sunglasses, Nordstrom Rack Local

$120

Founded in the basement of the department store's downtown flagship in 1973, Nordstrom Rack is our longtime local go-to for great deals on high fashion. The online sunglasses selection is especially rich, but you don't have to be: These artsy, pastel Miu Mius are 69 percent off their original price of $388. Nice.

$198

We've got our (snake) eyes on all sorts of chaotic pants, but Reformation's dice-embroidered jeans win for playfulness (without being so obnoxious they defy pairing).

Shark Tooth Cuff, Hitchcock Local

$555

Turn to this Madrona jewelry studio if you've got a sentimental older piece that needs restored into an even better version of its former self. Or if you need a gift with teeth.

Checkered Cardholder, Primecut

$30

Image: Primecut

Like any proud sibling, we feel no shame occasionally outsourcing our fashion needs to our septum-pierced sister city (love ya, Portland). Especially when said city plays host to Primecut's carefully sourced cowhide and shearling accessories in still-trendy checker print.

Paily Heels, Dolce Vita

$80 $125

Image: Dolce Vita

If you know shoes, you know Dolce Vita. Though the fashion-forward company hasn't had a presence in Seattle since shuttering its Ballard shop and vacating its Smith Tower HQ, we consider these knockout heels, also available in neutrals, metallics, and multicolor, as Seattle as Puget Sound views.
