Fashion on Nantucket is iconic, with its Nantucket reds, Vineyard Vines polos and classic American designers like Ralph Lauren and Lily Pulitzer. If you want to look like a regular on ACK, you'll want to capture some of that preppy vibe during your stay. Here are our recommendations for shopping on Nantucket to help you add some classic island touches to your wardrobe.
This women's clothing shop located in an ivy-covered shingled building captures that modern bohemian look that's perfect for summer on the island. With an aesthetic similar to Anthropologie, you'll find clothes, jewelry, shoes, and some housewares. Shop owner Emily Hollister fell in love with Nantucket after moving to the island after college and opened this shop, named for her grandmothers.
Head a little out of the shopping district to Center Street to find this boutique that will have something for all the ladies in the family. The tunics and shift dresses will flatter every shape, with a great mix of nautical and chic items, and accessories to match. Should you need a sweater or a jacket for those cool island nights, Zero Main has a great selection of London Fog outerwear.
You'll find classic ACK wear for the whole family at this family-owned shop. From dressy events to casual beach clothes Murray's has you covered. Should you need a pair of Nantucket reds, Murray's is the home of the original men's work pant, originally designed for the island's fisherman. Get that classic weathered look by washing your reds, dipping them in the ocean (yes, really) and leaving them out to air dry in the sun.
