When I say Fall, you say fashion. Okay, not really. We're not doing that. Even if it's a pretty common feeling for people to get super excited about Fall fashion - because let's be real, it's pretty much the best fashion. Seriously. Oversized sweaters, knit scarves, cozy boots, plaid everything... what's not to love? Even better, Montreal has an amazing fashion scene.
Which means that if your Fall wardrobe is looking threadbare and you need some inspiration, or if you're looking for a place to shop for adorable Fall clothing, you don't have to worry. We got you. Here are 8 Montreal Fashion Boutiques To Shop At This Fall 2015.
664 Boulevard St. Laurent, 1036 Mont-Royal, 1499 Fleury Est
Okay, truth time, I don't use the term "on point" for just anything. But a store that sells trendy and contemporary clothing at reasonable prices? That, friends, is the very definition of an on-point boutique. Fair warning: if you walk into Kooka, the chances are high that you're going to leave with a bag full of gorgeous clothes (and a very empty wallet, just like me).
2. Belle et Rebelle
6321 Rue St-Hubert
Raise your hand if you love to shop local. Is your hand in the air? Great, then Belle et Rebelle is for you. This trendy shop specializes in selling quality clothes made by Quebec designers. So not only will you be building a beautiful Fall wardrobe, but you'll be supporting Canadian designers as well. Win win? Win win.

3. The Want Apothecary
4960 Sherbrooke Ouest
Which hands down wins the "Most Appropriately Named" award, because you'll pretty much end up wanting everything in the store. Was that a lame pun? Yes it was. But that doesn't make it any less true. The Want Apothecary carries brands such as Acne Studious and Maison Kitsuné, as well as their own brand of fine leather goods. If that didn't sell you, just remember that the boutique also sells beauty products. So your skin can be as fresh as your clothes this Fall.
4. Boutique Tozzi
2115/2095 Rue Crescent
There is only one word to describe Boutique Tozzi: beautiful. The clothes? Beautiful. The space? Beautiful? The quality? Beautiful. The service? Top-notch, but only because I don't think "beautiful service" is a thing. Dealing exclusively in men's fashion, and carrying both classic and trendy wardrobe options, Tozzi pretty much hits the nail on the head when it comes to a great boutique. Bonus points for offering equally amazing shoes and accessories, meaning that you can outfit yourself for Fall in one fell swoop.
5. Boutique Onze
4146 Rue Saint-Denis, 4151 Boulevard Saint-Laurent
Fans of vintage-inspired clothing, I have some bad news for you. Your closet space is about to take a serious hit. Boutique Onze features glorious, vintage-inspired pieces that'll definitely spruce up your Fall wardrobe (S/O to the plaid Elysée Dress for being everything I need in my life). Convenience factor? You can shop the boutique online, and they have a couple of brick and mortar locations for you to pick from. It's alright. Closet space isn't that important, anyway.
6. Boutique Lustre
4068 Boulevard Saint-Laurent
If you don't think that fashion is art, then maybe you should pay Boutique Lustre a visit. Seriously. This boutique features unique and beautiful clothes designed and created by one Montreal woman. Which not only means that updating your Fall wardrobe chez Lustre supports local talent, but also that you'll be rocking something that's pretty much one-of-a-kind. You know, kind of like a beautiful Autumn leaf.
7. Atelier B.
5758 Boulevard Saint-Laurent
Are you a fan of simple yet stunning pieces? That was a rhetorical question. Everyone's a fan of simple yet stunning pieces. And luckily, Atelier b. is pretty much synonymous with gorgeous, minimalistic, stylish clothes. How can things possibly get any better? Well, Atelier b. is run by a team of Montreal-based designers, who create their clothes in-house. Did you just fall in love? Because I sure did. Pun intended.
Photo cred - MIMI & COCO
8. Mimi and Coco
201 Avenue Laurier Ouest
If this name seems familiar, it's because Mimi & Coco has been going strong in Montreal for over two decades. And one stroll through their boutique will pretty much tell you why. Mimi & Coco is basically the embodiment of Italian fashion brought to Montreal: trendy, effortlessly cool, and totally stylish. Be prepared for a serious case of the heart eyes while browsing their Fall selection, and maybe make amends with the fact that a piece of clothing will become your soulmate. You've been warned, friends. You've been warned.
