Everything old is new again at Looks Better On You, but that doesn’t mean that the boutique’s staff hangs just anything on the racks. The team scours blogs, broadsheets from abroad, and fashion columns to stay on top of the street styles that will become tomorrow’s couture. And though they fill the store with recognizable brands such as Coach, Gucci, and Ralph Lauren, the fashionistas always keep an open mind. If an unknown designer has an on-trend or pre-trend piece, they gladly snatch it up. To help guests make the most of the sartorial selection, in-house fashion consultants carry out color analyses, matching clothes to skin tone, hair color, and current mood-ring shade.

Then they set to work by granting new skins to pieces ranging from vintage and modern furniture to careworn car seats.
