Miami has the answer to Rodeo Drive and Palm Beach’s Worth Avenue with nine sought-after boutiques that cater to a fashion clientele, who are style savvy and effortlessly elegant. Between a new on-trend Parisian stomping ground, located in the Design District, that’s showing locals how French women do street style best, to a sneaker meets ice cream emporium that’s handcrafting and globally sourcing luxury footwear for deco drive tastemakers, fashion-forward connoisseurs and Mademoiselles can expect their dream wardrobe to appear lock and loaded in no time—complete with all the charming and soft glittering finishes.
Parisian street style. One that tells the tale of a French girl who adores the WWD runway. She’s an amalgamation of elegance and femininity mixed in with a quiet, discrete disruption of the fashion hierarchy—that is replacing must-have items with a simple beret or a creative tulle skirt. And if you dare to do it like the women of Paris, then we suggest only one store—of highest recommendation by local Miami stylist and brand ambassador of NET-A-PORTER, Serena Bassil. New to the ultra-savvy Miami Design District, BA&SH is a collection of silhouettes that embody the coveted, carefree, and chic Parisian essentials, co-founded by lifelong friends Barbara and Sharon. Between French-cool authenticity and sophisticated bohemian flair in go-to pieces, you’ll discover the architecture of French fashion and how the Parisians know to do it best. 106 NE 40th Street #109

Kristen Cole, President and CCO of TenOverSix and Forty Five Ten, is bringing a new mix of emerging design and fashion to a city that’s known for its beachy and sexy aesthetic with high-concept items from modern, esoteric, and oftentimes humorous collections. 7338 NW Miami Court

And at this Collins Avenue South Beach location, tourists and local sneaker connoisseurs can have it all—sky rise high walls of layered footwear, trendy hoodies, and swirled ice cream cones sprinkled with Frosted Flakes and Cap’n Crunch. We recommend—post-shopping—dipping into "The Bam Bam By Action Bronson," a delectable frozen dessert mixed with Rice Krispie treats, Cookie Crisps, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Kit Kats, crushed Oreos, and marshmallow charms. Now that’s putting a whole new spin on dunkaroo! 1931 Collins Ave
