A little-known fact about Miami Beach: it’s actually a great place to shop. Retail runs the gamut from trendy boutiques with resort wear staples (because we are in the tropics, after all) to multi-story luxury experiences inside Art Deco gems that expand the horizons of your style and closet. Lincoln Road brings you a mile’s worth of retail heavy hitters, while Sunset Harbor is a wonderful and relaxing concentration of locally owned shops. And sprinkled along Collins Avenue are the kinds of stores that draw you to South Beach as much as the sand or the Miami beaches might. Leave some room in your suitcase and prepare to upgrade your closet. Here’s where to go for the best shopping in Miami Beach.

South Beach’s iconic pedestrian mall has around 200 restaurants, cafes, art galleries, performance venues and shops, including big-name retailers you know and love like Zara, Anthropology, Intermix, CB2, Apple and even Macy’s. It also touts experiential retail, like a best-in-class Nike Store with running, soccer and basketball trial zones as well as an H&M flagship housed in the restored and historic Lincoln Theater. And best of all, when you get hungry, you can just pop into Time Out Market to try out some of Miami’s most essential restaurants all in one place.

But there’s more to this thoroughfare than you might think. Since launching its pop-up program, Lincoln Road has been able to give up and coming local brands, eateries, artists a chance to shine with short-term leases, while also letting global brands like Shein and Air Kiy test the waters in Miami. Other big draws to Lincoln Road are its open-air markets in the fall and winter, like the much-beloved Friends of Lincoln Road Antique and Collectibles Market, where you can score amazing vintage home goods at a variety of price points, and the SOBEWFF Artisan Market, which features an evolving roster of some of Miami’s best bites.

Your average passersby might zoom right past The Webster and write it off as another Art Deco boutique hotel, but the global fashion set knows better. This three-story luxury retailer is a place of style lore, or shall we say Laure, as everything inside has been meticulously curated by Laure Heriard Dubreuil, who has played a notable role in making Miami the fashionable force it is today.

Laure has wielded her fashion influence to bring the city’s most fashionable men and women exclusive selections (and Webster-specific collaborations) from household names like Chanel, Gucci, Balenciaga, Alexander Wang and more, and doesn’t shy away from introducing more experimental luxury labels like Vetements, Jacquemus, Mugler and Paco Rabanne. Explore the space from bottom to top, and whether you leave with something or not, you’re bound to bring home with you an air of inspiration.

Beach Boutique is a little slice of Steel Magnolias right in Sunset Harbor, perfect for the girl who craves a closet filled with femininity. For over a decade, this two-story boutique has been one of South Beach’s best-kept secrets and owner Patricia Costa prides herself on delivering an exceptionally personalized, delightful experience for all clients, including curating head-to-toe looks and writing every thank you card.

On the first floor, you’ll find contemporary labels like Rachel Comey, Nili Lotan and Ulla Johnson. The second floor is more like a private salon, where you can peruse ladylike party looks from brands such as Bernadette Antwerp and Galvan London. For Costa, everything inside needs to feel soft to the body, whether it’s a wispy piece of lingerie, billowy floral cotton dress or a cashmere number from Beach Boutique’s own private collection.
