Veronica Beard Now Open on Nantucket Summer 2020

NANTUCKET, MASSACHUSETTS (June 2020) – American ready-to-wear fashion brand Veronica Beard has opened a full-service boutique at 11 South Water Street in downtown Nantucket for Summer 2020. Founded in 2010 by co-designers and sisters-in-law Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard, the label is best known for its refined tailoring and feminine silhouettes.

The Veronica Beard aesthetic is thoughtfully designed fashion with feminine accents; styles that bridge the balance between trendy and classic, taking the Veronica Beard shopper effortlessly from day to night and work to weekend. Within every season’s collection, Veronica Beard shoppers can find the sister-in-laws’ signature jacket, the Dickey, a classic blazer with hoodie insert underneath, in denim or various colors and patterns.

Veronica Beard positions itself squarely as a lifestyle brand with customers from twenty years to eighty years old, including such fashion trendsetters such as Meghan Markle. The Beards attribute the brand’s success to their commitment to the elevated contemporary sportswear space, as well as to their unique understanding of their shopper. The collection’s creators are mothers, entrepreneurs, sisters, and friends—and are the Veronica Beard customer themselves. Their motto: Look good, feel good, and do what you love.
