Palm Beach’s style insiders sound off on what’s in and what’s out in local sartorial trends.
Classic meets modern appeal in Maus & Hoffman’s gentlemanly offerings, including this Sant’Andrea Milano sport coat.
1. LILLY PULITZER As the resident ruler of preppy beachchic motifs, it’s no surprise Palm Beach-born Lilly Pulitzer is leaning into its bread and butter: style with vibrant panache. “After months of being bundled up in anything but form-flattering clothing, we are most excited about maximizing the feminine details, such as ruffles, frills and flounces,” says Mira Fain, Lilly Pulitzer executive vice president of product design and development. “Tiered hemlines, trapeze silhouettes with flounce details and soft, frilly shoulders paired with our must-have gold Casey wedge will definitely add some sunny pep in your step as you shop your way through town. 240 Worth Ave., Palm Beach, lillypulitzer.com
2. MAUS & HOFFMAN On the menswear front, family-owned Maus & Hoffman takes a fresh approach to classic tailoring. Says third-generation owner Michael Maus, “As vaccines roll out, we are seeing a return of the social calendar. After a year’s hiatus, our customers are refreshing their wardrobes with statement-making sport coats in brighter colors or bold patterns. Even the Palm Beach stalwart navy blazer is getting refreshed with more contemporary fits and softer construction.” 312 Worth Ave., Palm Beach, mausandhoffman.com

3. STUBBS & WOOTTON Stubbs & Wootton Creative Director Justin Irvine champions bespoke footwear basics. “As we go through our closets during this time at home,” he says, “we are editing down to survival chic, and basics seem more important than ever. Less is more in numbers of slippers, but more is more in terms of quality. We’ve had a welcome surge in custom and bespoke orders. … Quality and uniqueness are key, and with bespoke, you gain all of those things—celebrating the beauty and personal style of what this world has to offer.” 340 Worth Ave., stubbsandwootton.com
4. OSCAR DE LA RENTA“The renewed optimism of 2021 is reflected across all of the major trends we are seeing this season,” says Oscar de la Renta Southeast Regional Manager Marcia Caplen. The house’s collection is a veritable tropical garden oasis. “Florals, bold prints and bright colors are just a few signs of the coming excitement to dress up again,” she notes. “The Palm Beach lady is wearing joyful patterns, lightweight fabrics and timeless feminine silhouettes.” 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Ste. 329, Palm Beach, oscardelarenta.com
5. MARLEY’S PALM BEACH COLLECTION Traditional elegance is the name of the game at Marley’s Palm Beach Collection, and this year is no different for owner Marley Herring. “Casual classics with an occasional touch of whimsy are sure hits,” she says. “And color, color, color, with white pants, of course!” 256 Worth Ave., Palm Beach, marleyspalmbeachcollection.com
