There’s certainly no shortage of girly boutiques on the Upper West Side, but this one stands out for being exceptionally well-edited and reasonably priced (tops go for $18–$200 and dresses range from $50–$275). The wearable, on-trend garb from accessible lines like Minkpink, BB Dakota, Amanda Uprichard and Susana Monaco nails casual chic—the chainlet is based in Long Island, after all—and can easily be dressed up with Mint’s selection of Tano handbags, Dolce Vita footwear and Jeanne Ruland’s gemstone jewelry, which she creates exclusively for the store. Keep an eye out for helpful “staff pick” signs hung around the hangers of favored items and for pieces by Josie Wild, Mint’s house line of silk skirts and dresses.
