Uncommon Threads is not your average clothing program! Our philosophy is that every woman deserves to look and feel beautiful–outside-in and inside-out. We work with women of all ages (from teens to the elderly) to provide them with individual styling sessions and a whole lot of pampering. Clients receive up to four complete outfits, two pairs of shoes, a handbag and lots of accessories. We can outfit a woman for any occasion from an interview to a birthday party.

If you are a social service professional who works with low-income women, please contact us to get on our partner referral list.


“As a social worker working with low income women, Uncommon Threads has been a godsend to me and my clients. I have referred over twenty women and every single one has come away with more confidence then before they visited Uncommon Threads. I could tell you twenty plus stories on how the boutique made them feel empowered, beautiful and confident.

[C.] lost everything to hurricane Maria. She came to Massachusetts with very little, I referred her to Uncommon Threads for interviewing outfits and she was so grateful that she cried. [C.] got a job two weeks later working as receptionist […] and is starting to build her life back.”

“Uncommon Threads is an invaluable resource to our Healthy Families Program! Our agency serves first-time moms during pregnancy and up to the child’s third birthday and we use the services of Uncommon Threads frequently. If we have an emergency situation, they are always there for us. Uncommon Threads has also given our clients make-overs. In particular, one girl […] went to Uncommon Threads for an outfit for an interview and got the job! Uncommon Threads also runs empowerment events and had a Christmas Gala that several of our clients attended. Each person received a new holiday outfit and a present along with refreshments that were served. Every person left the event with a spring in their step and felt good about themselves. Thank you Uncommon Threads for empowering our women!”
