For years, the Sunshine Coast fashion scene was all about representing the easy-going and relaxing lifestyle, with local boutiques bursting with beach-ready clothing. While there’s nothing like slipping into a cool kaftan, the Sunshine Coast has grown up and now calls for a variety of specialty clothing stores to suit the new era. From boutiques boasting elegant and trendy dresses to hidden gems overflowing with retro pieces, here are four stylish clothing boutiques you should visit this weekend.
Mishkah – Mooloolaba
Embodying an effortless collection of chic and down-to-earth pieces, Mishkah takes a basic piece and adds hints of flavour for a timeless look. At first look, Mishkah might seem like a store for the young ones, but a peek inside tells a different story. If you’re in need of a last minute piece, Mishkah can cater to any occasion, from a night out to a coffee date with friends.
Retournez-Vous – Mooloolaba
Retournez-Vous is a quaint but enchanting vintage boutique on the outskirts of the main precinct at Mooloolaba. It’s a credit to the owner, whose extraordinary eye has a knack for sourcing quality vintage pieces, from hand-crafted jewellery to fur coats and tailored dresses. Each weekend, the store is wall-to-wall with customers; and the perfect item for an upcoming wedding, 1950’s party or races is waiting inside.
Sinerji – Forest Glen
