Experienced skateboarders will appreciate this store’s streamlined setup; all the merch is displayed on the walls, leaving the floor open for moving around: Ogle the apparel, hats and boards under a television looping skate footage, movies and music videos. You don’t have to worry about poseurs here—all the staff members are skaters themselves, and can discuss boards ($49) and T-shirts ($24–$40) by brands such as DGK, Skate Mental, Gold, Palace, Girl and Chocolate. Boards are sold solo, and a fully tricked-out version runs about $150. But the 18-year-old flagship also carries everything else you need to ollie in style, from sets of wheels ($30) to the brand’s own cotton T-shirt ($32). You can even pick up a Supreme harmonica ($34), on which you can compose paeans to skate life.

Malia Mills

  • Critics choice

This breezy swimwear and clothing line launched in 1993 with the goal of ensuring flattering fits for women of all sizes. Envelop yourself in convertible pieces such as removable-strap swim tops that can be worn as a halter or tube ($215–$235) and loose print caftans with two ties that can be inventively wrapped to fit your body type ($465–$545). The goods definitely aren’t discount resort wear, but investing in one of the standout items here will take the stress out of shopping for your next beach vacation: Check out the pinup-inspired swim bottoms ($195–$225), which feature flirty ties  and can be matched with any top, or brave the ruched low-back one-piece Dionne bathing suit ($325–$415). Mention TONY to receive 10 percent off all purchases through May 1.

Onassis Clothing

Preppy guys with a rugged edge can refresh their go-to weekend outfits at this menswear boutique. The casual, nautical-inspired clothing is more akin to yachting attire than anything else, but you can rock the denim shorts ($68), striped cotton tees ($58), chambray short-sleeved button-ups ($68) and cargo vests ($88) in a crowded Williamsburg bar just as well. After shopping, stop by the café in the back for complimentary coffee (offered daily) and prosecco on Friday nights. Mention TONY in store or use the code “TIMEOUT10” online to receive 10 percent off all purchases through April 30.

A vibrant array of garments can be found within this three-story, 30,000-square-foot store. Browse the towering but neat stacks of jeans ($50) and button-ups ($30–$40), as well as tons of basic tees, tops, leggings, scarves and more in almost any shade of the rainbow. Don’t pass up the T-shirts featuring special-edition designs from Uniqlo’s recent partnerships with MoMA, the Warhol estate, David Lynch, Lulu Guinness and Concord Music Group on the mezzanine level. Both sexes can find summer-savvy buys throughout the store, including dry-packed T-shirts in crew- and V-neck styles ($6) for men, and orange and melon-hued skinny jeans for women ($40). For the perfect fit, inquire about in-house tailoring for jeans with either normal stitches (free with $20 purchase, $5 for pants less than $20) or blind stitches ($5 on select pants).

Drop by this London-based beauty chain and comb through an array of hard-to-find international brands without the crowds of  Sephora. Score luxury skin-care goodies such as Dr Sebagh deep-exfoliating masks ($115), Eve Lom cleansers ($40–$125) and Darphin wrinkle-repair face serums ($175). Natural-looking makeup reigns here—you won’t find any highly pigmented palettes, just cosmetics to enhance your glow. The lightweight NARS mineral face powders ($35), Rococo pastel polishes ($17) and By Terry neutral lip colors ($48) rule supreme. Mention TONY at the Greene Street location only to receive a Lipstick Queen Peacock Alley set ($38 value) with any $50 purchase, while supplies last.

Jade Lai opened the first Creatures of Comfort store in 2005 in L.A., and brought her cool-girl aesthetic to the East Coast two years ago. The shop, located in a former police precinct, houses picks from Lai’s eponymous collection ($150–$550), in addition to lines such as Repetto, Acne, MM6 Maison Martin Margiela and Isabel Marant’s Étoile. Blue racks of clothing (including two for men) are organized by brand, and several pairs of footwear are displayed throughout. You can also find high-end accessories here, such as J.W. Hulme Co. Mini Legacy shoulder bags ($350) and Acne Webber ties ($140). If you need a minute to ponder the purchase of a pair of Illesteva or Karen Walker sunglasses ($200–$300), step inside an outdoor alcove lined with potted plants.

A bright orange decal boasting the names of the 150 young designers this shop carries entices shoppers toward racks crammed with pieces by brands such as Iro, Mandrake and Beta Unit. Some exclusive lines available only here include rosewood-and-sterling and agate jewelry from U.K. line the Branch ($100–$150) and Jon Josef needlepoint loafers ($138) from Spain. While items such as the Iro grommetted pocket tank ($138) and Brave Beltworks studded skinny black belt ($108) require a definite splurge, you can still wrap yourself in one of the unisex silk-and-cashmere scarves ($60) off of the spool table near the front of the store for an affordable and stylish transition into summer.
