Toss out that touristy Denver- and Colorado-themed merchandise and make some room in your closet for the slick style of Rich Mob Tendencies. This local streetwear brand brings clean, bold design to those wanting to represent the Mile High City in sophisticated sweatshirts, stylish tees and shiny satin jackets. Rich Mob Tendencies' signature pieces feature embroidered lettering, stitching a bold palate of red, yellow and blue that pops against black and white fabrics. Blending haute couture and activewear, this Rocky Mountain fashion house also serves up limited runs of beanies, jean jackets and track suits. Whether you're a born-and-raised Denverite or a proud newcomer to the city, Rich Mob Tendencies invites you to "live rich" while looking damn good in their clothes. Besides, what's more Colorado than stepping out in dapper athleisure evening wear that proclaims your love for the place where you live?

To define what's "street" in today's fashion vernacular, look no further than Novl, a Baker neighborhood emporium that works with graffitists, street artists and collaborating brands to create graphic clothing that travels well, looks good on the pavement or from a skateboard, and is suitable to wear while painting a mural on a painter's lift — or whatever else pleases you. These are the threads you can wear when you want to dress down and still make a statement, and while the shop is closed, you can peruse (and order) Novl's wares online.

Kismet

Shana Colbin Dunn's boutique empire began with one Kismet store in Highland in 2006, and since then she's added and subtracted more locations in the metro area. More recently, she introduced the wellness-oriented boutique True at Stanley Marketplace and a second store in LoHi that just moved to RiNo. And in between all these new and continuing developments, Dunn re-evaluated her very first Kismet last summer and added a little sister to the others: Luna and Jasper, named after her own kids' middle names, which is appropriately a mixture of favorite Kismet brands, affordable gifts, baby gear and more. While the whole kingdom is currently shut down for visitors, gift cards are available online, and Dunn is working on adding one-on-one styling sessions and online shopping to her medley of customer services.

Mona Lucero is a bit of a legend around these parts, because she's the full package: an independent designer, artist, entrepreneur and retailer, besides simply being a wonderful person. Her beautiful Shop Mona Lucero is shut for now, but many items, including new merchandise, can be ordered online. And because a sense of IRL community is so important to her, Lucero has launched a Friday-evening Downtown Live Stream at Mona's online get-together, with special guests, virtual shopping and general shop talk while the brick-and-mortar is down.
