Four Shopping Spots You Must Visit in Brooklyn

By Travel Savvy

Once upon a time, in the world of everyday fashion, women considered their respective 'age groups' to be the line of demarcation that determined what styles to wear (and which to avoid). Then, mom jeans are the new high-waisted denim, preferred by hipsters and professional corporate women alike. Fast-forward to today and you'll find that modern women want brands who reflect their own personal style.

Our editors are huge fans of CollegeFashionista, a fashion site for those who are passionate about the latest trends happening in universities and colleges around the world. Aisha Hatter, Community Manager for the site, blogs about styles seen on campuses and the surrounding communities so that you can stay on top of your fashion game. When she’s not at the office or sharing the perfect selfie on her Instagram, Aisha explores her homebase, Brooklyn, for best clothing finds in boutiques and vintage shops across her neighborhood. 

Check out this fashionista’s favorite shopping spots in her ‘hood that you just can’t miss!

Sunday: 12PM to 8 PM

Nestled between cute thift shops and cafes on Bedford Avenue (a.k.a. hipster-central), Courtshop is the denim hunting ground for locals, commuters, and vistors alike. From pants to dresses and everything in between, grab your denim fix from the store’s neatly lined shelves and distressed wood tables.

Courtshop specializes in no-frills denim pieces that are on-trend without the need for fancy pockets or designer labels. Best of all, all the tags display agreeable prices. No doubt you’ve probably come across the brand online, but the storefront in Brooklyn is a must see.
