Freud was stumped. Third-wave feminists can’t agree.
But Melissa Akkaway, owner of popular Melrose clothing store Beckley Boutique, might finally have the answer to the age-old question: What do women want?
After years of listening to customer requests (“Does this come in black?” “Is there a sleeveless version?”), she’s debuted a line perfectly in tune with today’s sartorial needs.
Laid-back and versatile, Beckley by Melissa doesn’t pledge itself to any overt style persona. Rather, superior comfort, fit, and fabric run through the collection. The pieces range from trendy (leather leggings, faux fur vest) to timeless (chiffon tie-bow blouse, lace-sleeved cocktail dress) with basics like cotton tees, cashmere knits, and party frocks thrown into the mix.
And in these rocky economic times, Akkaway is committed to an accessible price point, offering pieces for as little as $60.
A(wo)men to that.
