Window Shopper: New Mavi Flares At Akira

Our fall wardrobes could use a little post-summer pick-me-up, (and if not, it's still fun to shop), and Akira totally gets it. While you're probably already relying on this local wonder-store for everything from job interview outfits to ugh-what-do-I-wear-to-this-wedding cocktail dresses, the store is also keeping in touch with trends and fresh seasonal arrivals. Want proof? Head over to the Akira of your choice for Mavi Jeans' newest baby, the Sydney Jean in Deep Rinse. This higher-waist flare is the perfect start to your fall wardobe, especially if you want to take baby steps. You can practice now, and by the time cooler weather arrives, you'll be all broken in and ready to go. Pack away your summer blues, they're probably grass-stained, bike-torn, and ready for a break anyway.

Akira, 2357 North Clark Street (between Belden and Fullerton avenues); 773-404-5826.
