Sense of Style

A Westport staple keeps fashion fun


As I drove down Westport’s Main Road on my way to Deni’s Closet, I’m suddenly reminded of the sense of community that exists within this scenic coastal town. I’m told that the cozy restaurant next door – Ten Cousins – which was just featured on the Phantom Gourmet, is usually the last stop for a Westporter’s shopping trip – preceded by Partners and Deni’s.

“The women in our community love to congregate when they shop on this street,” owner Deni Squillante remarks, “I wanted to make sure they could have a place to do so,” she motions to the patio just outside. The old Quaker parsonage, where the boutique is now located, lets in plenty of inviting, natural light.

Deni’s Closet features coveted Lisette pants and skirts, JOJO jewelry, Clara Sunwoo ensembles and super-soft Avalin sweaters that you will want to live in. “We try to find things that are comfortable, something that you can wear through three seasons.”

She also shared upcoming fall trends she’s seen at designer trunk shows: long chain link necklaces, infinity scarves and a great handbag will keep you in style, especially if one of these items is in red.

Deni’s Closet, along with their neighbors in retail are also promoting the “shop local” movement. They are enticing their customers to be frequent patrons of small, community-oriented stores and boutiques for the good of the local economy and business owners. Now that’s a fashion trend we can all get behind.
