Hip Chic has the fashionable items you’ve been looking for!
There are few things better than taking a shopping break in between a busy schedule of classes. Hip Chic’s eye catching, bright purple sign and playful lettering are hard to miss and instantly invite shoppers to explore the inside of the store.
Upon entering, I found that Hip Chic is designed to look like a personal dream closet. Chandeliers hang from the ceiling and a variety of decorative area rugs cover the hard wood floors, which features racks upon racks of interesting clothing. Browsing through the merchandise, I found popular brands such as Living Royal, Beautees, So Nikki…, Vintage Havana, Sugar Lips and Malibu Sugar. The clothes are organized into three different categories throughout the store: 4-6X (little girls), 7-16 (tweens) and Junior Adult.
What makes Hip Chic different from other apparel stores is that the clothes are for the youthful at heart despite the age of the wearer. My favorite aspect of this boutique was the creative designs on all the apparel and accessories. Hip Chic had everything from bacon socks to a notebook in the shape of a large cookie. The hats and t-shirts were printed with clever and trendy sayings such as, “#nofilter.” The store offers a variety of casual and formal dresses, graphic t-shirts, lounge apparel, jewelry, novelty items and shoes.
“We often get young ladies shopping for prom dresses at our store,” said manager Michelle F. “There is a level of customer service and uniqueness here that you can’t find at a department store. That’s why we have so many returning customers.”
Hip Chic is affordable for those on a budget, with items ranging from $5-70. The store features high-end clothing quality at a fraction of the price. Hip Chic is located on 533 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair, N.J. If you are looking for fun and unique pieces to add to your wardrobe, Hip Chic is the place for you.
