Charleston’s Coolest Boutiques

Whether You Need A New Dress Or Lipstick, Charleston, S.C is Where To Go

Whether you’re a Charlestonian or a visitor in need of a new dress or lipstick, these five boutiques have got you covered for shopping.

Thanks to owner Stacy Smallwood, Hampden is the city’s go-to destination for local fashionistas. Spacious, airy, and cloaked in all white, the roster of labels is a smart mix of established heavyweights (think Marni and Rag&Bone) and buzzy up-and-comers (like Dodo Bar Or and Ulla Johnson).

Pink Dot Beauty
Recognized as one of the top beauty shops in the country, Pink Dot curates a diverse selection of hip cosmetics, haircare, and skincare, like RMS Beauty, a natural cosmetics line by Charleston-based celebrity makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift. Professional beauty services are also available, should you need a little sprucing up.

Skinny Dip
The second offshoot of the wildly successful store in Nantucket offers up the same collection of emerging designers from all over the country in an airy, colorful space. In addition, there’s a wine and coffee bar if you need to fuel up or wind down after shopping.

Billy Reid
Alabama-based designer Billy Reid brings his traditional aesthetic with a twist to King Street. Kitted out with dark wood furniture, vintage mirrors, and colorful rugs, it’s a sophisticated place to browse through Reid’s well-made jackets, sweaters, and trousers.

The decor of this beloved boutique is where industrial meets chic. You’ll find everything you need for a stylish wardrobe and home, including dresses from Rick Owens and Gary Graham, glassware from Shelter Collection, and candles from Tatine.
