Island life comes with an undeniable island style of bathing suits, flowing layers and trendy accessories, from rope cuffs to en vogue shades. And on an island such as Bali with its varying landscapes, it’s no wonder the island’s capital of Denpasar offers a collection of creative designers and styles, for every visitor–from adventurist, to surfer, to yogi.
Behold downtown Seminyak–where the chaotic, winding streets pay homage to Bali’s Asian roots while highlighting its spirited charm for international visitors. Typical touristy trinkets overflow from the sparse souvenir shops, with petite boutiques claiming the majority of space. With so many options of loose cover ups, stitched leather, handcrafted silver and, of course, surfing gear, it’s easy to spend at least a day exploring the eclectic town. While you can’t go wrong with the multitude of storefronts, not everyone has a day to dedicate to navigating their way through the city, so, we asked Filipino Influencer and entrepreneur, Kimi Juan, to share 10 of her favorite shops, that any visitor, fashion-forward or not, needs to visit.
Juan’s expertise on these shops comes from years of visiting the Indonesian island, visiting eight times just last year. Her intrigue for Balinese boutiques and brands inspired her to launch her own company, Wear Wolfe—offering chic sliders for both island and city soul. So, whether you’re looking for gifts to bring home, or chic staples to add to your Bali wardrobe throughout your trip, Juan has you covered, offering a variety of recommendations for the swimsuit loving gal to the motorcycle guy.
You can check out these shops and more when you join Electrify Getaways’ Spirit of Bali trip this spring.
