Queens – Forest Hills/Rego Park
71-11 Austin St between 71st Ave and 71st Rd
Label worshippers, avert your eyes: You won't find any brand names in this sunny womenswear boutique. But Maiko makes up for its lack of recognizable designers with a voguish selection. Though prices here are a tad higher than at hypertrendy chain Forever 21, the swingy jackets, mod dresses and chic handbags are worth a few extra bucks, since its wares will help keep you from running into a style doppelgänger on the street.
