South Florida may be best known for its sultry beaches and wild nightlife, but it also happens to be the premier destination for picking up the very best in designer threads.

1 Worth Avenue

Hot off the heels of last year’s celebration of the town of Palm Beach’s 100th birthday, Worth Avenue is still abuzz. Perhaps that’s because even post-centennial, this well-punctuated strip has reason to celebrate. Here are just a few of those reasons: Tiffany & Co., Ralph Lauren, Jimmy Choo, East Coast Jewelry, Cartier, Michael Kors, and many more. A small sampling of the top-notch designer outposts lining this high-end shopping destination, there are a whole shopping trip’s worth and we highly recommend you check them out.

3 Lincoln Road

With various luxury retailers calling this South Beach destination home, including Y-3, Osklen, Alchemist and Taschen; the 1111 building on Lincoln Road is one of Miami's premier shopping area. We suggest making it an afternoon and complimenting your shopping spree with a savory meal at Juvia or Serendipity 3.

4 Design District

The buzzing Design District has quickly garnered the attention of Miami shoppers through its laidback-yet-polished hospitality hotspots. A cultural playground of sorts, the area boasts outlets of high-end fashion houses like Christian Louboutin and Maison Martin Margiela as well as option-ridden retailers like En Avance boutique. That being said, it’s no surprise that Dior chose this up-and-coming neighborhood for its pop-up shop during Art Basel 2011.
