Street style? Miami has it — especially when it comes to al fresco shopping destinations. From sun-soaked South Beach to artsy Wynwood and the luxury-cloaked Design District to further south in history-rich Coconut Grove and Coral Gables, each location brings something unique to the fashion table. Here’s your guide to Miami’s most famous shopping streets — and, when you can’t hold anymore bags from your shopping spree, head to a café to recharge.

South Beach

One of the most iconic shopping streets in Miami is the always-bustling Lincoln Road Mall, a pedestrian-friendly mecca of shopping, dining and entertainment that’s dotted with fountains and old trees with hanging gardens. While the eight-block shopping mall is constantly evolving, expect to find mainstream stores like Macy’s, Zara, Madewell, Urban Outfitters, Intermix, Anthropologie, and a sprinkling of independently owned shops such as Books & Books and Alchemist. Grab a seat at one of the many al fresco restaurants to catch a constant parade of local characters, or sample one of the new food halls to refuel.

Wander further south on Collins Avenue to discover another cluster of well-known brands like Club Monaco, Beach Bunny and Sephora. For more spots to pick up oh-so-Miami souvenirs, move over to famous Ocean Drive which is lined with Art Deco hotels, galleries and many restaurants.

For a local’s vibe with on-trend boutiques, head to the waterfront neighborhood of Sunset Harbour, which is saturated with everything from yoga and cycling spots to global restaurants and hip boutiques that locals love such as Beach Boutique, Shan, Eberjey and more. When you’re done shopping, snag a spot at the waterfront park to gaze at the beautiful boats anchored there.

If you love luxury, then all your fashion friends are here. Walk this uber-chic neighborhood full of art and architecture for more than 60 high-end boutiques with big hitters like Dior, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Hermes, Christian Louboutin, along with local favorites likes En Avance, a well-curated boutique which showcases established and new talent from around the world. Watch connoisseurs should make a bee-line for a row of extravagant watch shops such as Vacheron Constantin, Hublot and Tag Heuer. Don’t miss the chance to take a “selfie” in front of the colorful walls of Fendi! Dining is just as sophisticated with hip new restaurants like Kaido, a Tokyo-style drinking den with lite bites; Ember, which is all about playing with fire; and Le Jardinier and L’Atelier restaurants which continue the legacy of the late French chef Jöel Robuchon.

Wynwood

Vibrant street art and sky-high murals might be the backbone of this ever-cool neighborhood, but it’s also a prime spot for perusing art galleries for that perfect piece to hang on your wall, while popping in locally-owned clothing and gift shops. Find unique gifts and pieces sourced from all over the world at adorable Frangipani, beachwear at Antigua Collection, along with bridal shops and well-known stores like Shinola and Warby Parker. Wynwood also offers some of the best eateries in the city like Alter for fine dining in a casual setting, or the Asian-inspired KYU restaurant, and local-favorites The Salty Donut and Panther Coffee.

If you want a residential feel with a side of sophisticated style, head to the city’s top street, Miracle Mile. While you’ll find women’s apparel at boutiques like My Best Friend’s Closet and Azai, the street is best known as “Bridal Row” thanks to the numerous bridal boutiques that dot the street. With dozens of restaurants, old and new, like Coyo Taco to Doc B’s, you’ll have plenty of place to rest your tired feet.

If you’re looking to treat yourself, stroll the Shops at Merrick Park, an airy shopping destination where you’ll peruse contemporary and upscale stores in a gorgeous outdoor setting. With a central courtyard dotted with soaring water fountains and winding walkways flanked by palm trees, this three-story mall offers more than a 100 stores and restaurants, including big retailers like Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, along with luxury stores such as Gucci and Louis Vuitton.

Coconut Grove

Known for its rich history, lush, tropical landscaping, and bohemian vibes, the bayside community of Coconut Grove is a place where you can park and walk, with endless blocks of shopping. Miami’s oldest neighborhood is experiencing a major transformation, and its famed lifestyle center, CocoWalk, is currently under renovation and will reopen with new retailers like eyewear boutique Edward Beiner and Palma de Leon, which boasts women’s clothing from emerging Latin American, European, and Australian designers, along with restaurants like Sushi Garage, Botanico Gin & Cookhouse, and Mister 01 Extraordinary Pizza. The shopping also extends to a cluster of boutiques that line Main Highway, Grand Avenue and Commodore Plaza. Don’t miss The Bazaar Project for other-worldly finds and Golden Bar for a mix of women’s clothing, jewelry and unique gifts. The area is also experiencing a culinary renaissance, with a roster of new restaurants like Tigertail + Mary and Bellini inside the new Mr. C Hotel.

Be sure to bring an extra suitcase for all your shopping finds in Miami.
