This year, we’re doing a different type of spring cleaning. That’s right—it’s time to stow away the sweaters and jeans and dig out the swimsuits and sandals! As the weather begins to warm up, there’s no better time to upgrade your wardrobe. But before you start “adding things to cart” online, we’ve put together the ultimate Newport Beach shopping guide for every type of trendsetter. Here are our top picks for some retail therapy this spring!
For the Beach Babe
Shop at: Faherty
We all know a gal who practically lives at the beach. And whether that’s you or a friend, Faherty is the perfect place to spruce up your wardrobe for spring.

Stop by their Lido Marina Village location, where you’ll find a chic space with whitewashed barn wood, bamboo accents, vintage photographs, surfboards and antique finds from the Faherty brothers’ travels around the world.
For the Surfer
Shop at: 15th St. Surf Shop
Since 1961, 15th St. Surf Shop on the Balboa Peninsula has remained a staple for local wave-riders. Not only does this locally owned shop have a stocked selection of surf apparel, like boardshorts, hoodies and Hawaiian shirts, but they also carry all of the saltwater essentials. Pick up a new pair of fins, wetsuit, skateboard or beach towel! The best part? Its seaside location! Stop by, grab your goods, then hit the waves!

The brand aims to inspire mindful movement with fashion-forward pieces that function as both athletic wear and streetwear. See for yourself why celebs love this emerging brand!
For the Glam Gal
With 8,000 square feet of retail space, it’s no wonder A’maree’s is a popular shopping destination in Newport Beach.
