Pixie Market Is A Style Party & These 13 Pieces Are Invited
Pixie Market launched as a boutique stocking cute and feminine styles in New York City’s Lower East Side neighborhood in 2006. The store’s latest iteration is online-only, which means its stylish selection is no longer exclusive to Manhattan dwellers, and are now available to shoppers all over the country.
In addition to abandoning the seasonal collection structure and dropping new styles weekly, the team at Pixie Market also creates exclusive products shoppers won’t find elsewhere. Styles range from frilly to sleek, so shoppers of all fashion preferences are sure to find a piece (or two, or three) that suits them. This means that the shop stocks of-the-moment and on-trend before they’re spotted on high street. We scoured the site for our favorite Pixie Market pieces that tap into spring and summer’s top trends.
Ruching, puff sleeves and slightly bohemian silhouettes are taking over the street style scene. If you’re totally over athleisure or bored with your minimalist wardrobe, give over-the-top volume and feminine details a try.
Sienna Brown Ruffle Top
$96 at time of publication
Ultra-femme details like rows of ruffles and oversized puff sleeves are grounded by this top’s earthy color. Styling details like a button-front placket and tie details let you make this top your own, and the square cut neckline show off a little collarbone and is flattering for all body types. We love how this top is styled on Pixie Market’s site, because the masculine trouser style does a great job of balancing out the top’s girly nature. This ruffled blouse is also a no-brainer option to dress up your favorite jeans.
This ruffle top is available at pixiemarket.com.
Frill Ruffle Midi Dress
$112 at time of publication
2019 is undoubtedly the year of the prairie dress. Pair a mid- or maxi-length silhouette with vintage details like tiers, ruffles or ties for dress straight out of a period film. This one from Pixie Market is 100% cotton, which means that it’s perfect to wear once the temperatures warm up. Its oversized ruffle details call for simpler accessories, so love the ideal of pairing it back to sleek slides or minimal strappy sandals.

Pussy-Bow Chiffon Blouse
$89 at time of publication
It’s no wonder there’s already a waitlist for this blouse - it’s the perfect mix of sweet, classic and girls all in one piece. The black and white palette keeps it feeling timeless and sophisticated. Try dressing it up with a black slip skirt or pair of sleek trousers for a formal office environment or a meeting where you want to make an impact. We love the contrast of black trim on white, and the ruffled detail around the edges of the oversized collar keep it from feeling too serious. A reminder: have fun with ruffles!

Styles from the ‘90s are making a massive comeback in the runways and fast-fashion alike. If you’re a bit averse to wearing the same pieces your mom wore when you were still in preschool, try dipping your toe in the nineties-mania with retro-inspired hair accessories.
Black Scrunchie Scarf
$22 at time of publication
Hair ribbons seem so effortless, but tend to slip and fall out as the day goes on. We love this scrunchie-ribbon hybrid from Pixie Market because it makes a romantic ponytail look truly effortless. To get this look, start with a clean center part, then group your hair at the nape of your neck in a low pony. Leave the ribbon ends out for a look that’s breezy and cool, or tie them into a sweet bow at the top of the ponytail. You can even tie it around a loose bun for a more refined style. This scrunchie comes in both black and white, so you can pick your favorite or get one of each for ultimate versatility.
This scrunchie scarf is available at pixiemarket.com.
Pearl Gold and Enamel Clip Set
$19 at time of publication
It’s no wonder this pearl barrette set has already sold out. We love that Pixie Market is selling a set of three that can be stacked for a very on-trend hair look. You can even wear one at a time for a more minimalist approach to the hair clip trend that’s taking over Instagram’s fashionable crowd right now. And don’t be mistaken - these are not your kindergarten picture hair barrettes. With gold, enamel and pearl details they feel decidedly grown up and elevated.
This clip set is available at pixiemarket.com.
Pale Pink Crystal Barrette Set
$14 at time of publication
There’s nothing minimal about this glamorous and girl hair clip set from Pixie Market. We like this pink version because they’ll stand out against or complement all hair colors and textures. One version is a classic barrette style that clips securely into place. Use this one to style a half-up, half-down hairstyle, or sit at the top of a messy chignon bun. The other version is a bejeweled bobby pin that slides easily into place at the hairline or above the ear. Wear them together for a style statement, or wear one on each side for a bit of charming style symmetry.
This barrette set is available at pixiemarket.com.
The magic of this silky fabric is that it makes every silhouette it’s rendered in feel soft, sensual and elevated. Light, flowy and made to catch the light, it can make any outfit feel intentional and pulled together
Silky Beige Blazer and Shorts
$219 and $92 at time of publication
This silky short suit from Pixie Market makes summer suiting fun and way less stuffy. This suit is built to be more soft and fluid than the ones you’ll see on wall street. It’s made out of a satiny fabric and made with thinner shoulder pads that provide structure without looking too boxy. This style is easy to dress up with a silk camisole or button-down blouse, but we love the casual styling featured on Pixie Market’s site. Try pairing this set with an oversized graphic tee for the ultimate cool-girl look.
Pink Tie-Front Blouse
$98 at time of publication
Another ‘90s trend that’s making a serious comeback is the tie-front blouse. This one from Pixie Market is made to be knotted in the front, and we love it’s loose and oversized cut. It’s another versatile piece that can be dressed up or down with your choice of bottom, and can even veer between masculine and feminine depending on your mood. Try wearing this pink silky blouse with a ruffled mini skirt for a going out outfit that flirty and cute. You can also pair it back to a pair of classic trousers, for an upgraded menswear inspired look, like the Pixie Market team does on their site.
This blouse is available at pixiemarket.com.
Valeria Black Silky Flare Skirt
$109 at time of publication
We’re back to sing the praises of this year’s ultimate staple piece, the silky slip skirt. This one from Pixie Market is cut at the perfect mid-calf length to be styled for both casual and more dressy occasions. It’s cut close to the help but flares out at the hem for soft movement and a universally flattering fit. We can’t wait to pre-order this style and wear it no less than once a week to everywhere from work to drinks to patio parties this summer.
This flare skirt is available at pixiemarket.com.
Utility-inspired looks had a huge moment on the Spring 2019 runways, and now this trend has finally made its way to our favorite neighborhood boutiques. Pixie Market is currently stocking pieces in every shade of beige, the pleated trousers of your dreams and dresses with pockets galore.
Olive Double Breasted Jumpsuit
$189 at time of publication
Nothing speaks to utilitarian styling much like the full-length jumpsuit. This one from Pixie Market is ‘80s inspired, speaking the this style’s fashion heyday. With an elongated lapel, matching belt and “storm shield” (the cut of fabric across the back shoulders), it draws a lot of details from the military-issued trench coat. Try wearing the front open with a cool graphic tee underneath and clean, all-white sneakers for laid-back but sleek daytime look. Pair this silky jumpsuit with sky-high heels and chandelier earring to take it out on the town once the son sets.

Casey Tan Wide-Leg Pants

These high-waisted trousers from Pixie Market are made special with touches like the extra-wide cut and triple button details on the belt. This pair has front pleats for structure but an updated wide-leg silhouette for modern styling and ease. The perfect shade of brown, these pants are the ultimate upgrade to classic the classic khaki trouser, and the touches add charming update to classic workwear details.

Denim Utility Maxi Dress
$138 at time of publication
A forever utilitarian classic, denim, meets modern femininity in this adorable Pixie Market maxi dress. The added touch of bohemian-inspired tiers add flowy movement and balance out functional details like the cargo pockets on the chest. In a lighter weight denim chambray and also a lighter vintage wash, the silhouette also draws from retro bohemian style with its tiered long skirt. This dress is also ultimately super functional. Not only are the wide straps bra-friendly, but they’re adjustable too. The tie-waist detail will flatter wearers of all shapes and sizes.
