If your personal style is the modern-day equivalent of a classic 1960s French New Wave film, then Echochic is your spot. Picture a ride on the Riviera in a 1965 fire-engine-red Thunderbird convertible on a sun-dappled day, with the accompanying fabulous Missoni bikini, shiny Dior aviators, and vibrant Pucci headscarf.
The 1st floor of this upscale Rittenhouse boutique carries plenty of chic items by style heavy-hitters like See by Chloe, Marc Jacobs, and L.A.M.B. The more adventurous can climb the winding metal staircase (bonus points for doing it in stilettos) for the vintage treasure trove of handbags, shoes, dresses, and bangles from the 1930s–1980s.
