Where to Shop in Miami

There's always someplace new to shop in Miami. Here, our current favorites.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Like the city itself, the Miami shopping scene has undergone a lot of change in the past five-plus years. World class luxury brands have long been heavily represented here, but now you can pick your poison when it comes to the shopping environment.

Want luxury brands in a chic outdoor mall (koi ponds and everything)? Head north to the Bal Harbour Shops. If indoor is more your thing, check out the brand new Brickell City Center, which just opened this November. Miami's love affair with the co-mingling art and fashion worlds — on brilliant display this week for Art Basel Miami Beach — means plenty of artfully designed shops and storefronts, too. The Design District is (literally) a must-visit, with a mix of art installations, avant-garde fashion labels, jewelry brands, and design showrooms. Farther south, you'll find the indie boutiques of Wynwood, many as decked out in artist-commissioned graffiti as the neighborhood's famous Wynwood Walls.

Miami Beach is also home to a number of independent shops. There are gems like Alchemist nestled amongst the chains of Lincoln Road Mall, and iconic boutiques like the Webster, with its pastel Art Deco exterior, plus some of the best hotel shops we've ever seen along Collins Ave.

Inclusive of everything above and then some, this map covers a lot of ground. There's no way you could see (or shop) it all in a single trip, but that's part of the beauty of Miami: There's always an excuse to come back for more.

To see some of the pop-up shops happening during Art Basel, check out our short list of fashion events here.

Shoppers — including celebrities and celebrity stylists — flock to C. Madeleine's for the absurdly good (and accordingly expensive) selection of vintage Chanel, Saint Laurent, and Gucci. But there are more affordable gems to be found too, like hand-painted denim jackets, dresses from the '60s and '70s, and funky men's shirts. (For even more vintage in the area, check out Rabbit Hole, which is also lovely.)

2. Bal Harbour Shops

9700 Collins Ave
Bal Harbour, FL 33154
This swanky outdoor mall is great if you're staying in the area, in the mood to drop some serious change, or want to window shop a bunch of different designer labels in a relatively relaxed, upscale environment. (But if you're not checking any of those boxes, it's not necessarily worth the trip.) Expect brands like Stella McCartney, Rag & Bone, Akris, Maje, and Agent Provocateur in addition to all the big dogs (Chanel, Gucci, Fendi, Dior, etc.), with Saks and Neiman Marcus to boot.
