The jewelry designs you decide to wear tell your story to the world, and Miami’s accessories shops are the key to finding the perfect pieces to jazz up any look. From hip leather bracelets and one-of-a-kind sunglasses to neon-colored Panama hats, the following are five places in Miami to find awesome accessories:
1. Boho Hunter
Marvel over jewelry designs from all over Latin America at Boho Hunter in Wynwood. This bold and inclusive accessories shop offers everything from neon-colored Panama hats to gold-plated pyramid earrings to quilted duffel bags. This bohemian shop was founded by four fashion-addict friends from Latin America who met in Miami. They showcase both the boutique brands they grew up loving and the rising design stars from the region that take a lot of hunting to find at other accessories shops.
2. The Shop at The Standard Spa
The Standard Spa is known as a hip Belle Isle destination for relaxation, but its accessories shop, The Shop at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach, is just as noteworthy. The boutique sells plenty of beach necessities such as bikinis and board shorts, plus fun accessory collaborations from noteworthy visual artists and companies. Pick up one of the rugged beach totes designed by Makr and artist Erik Parker, which is lined with colorful illustrations of shark fins. Or, choose a pair of sunglasses from an entire wall of shades. The Standard’s exclusive Warby Parker collaboration is a unisex tortoiseshell frame that provides 100 percent UV protection, and for each pair sold, a pair of reading glasses will be donated to a person in need.
3. Liza Schwartz Jewelry
One of the newest hits in jewelry designs is the ancient nazar symbol, the eye-shaped charm used to ward off bad luck. These international emblems are plentiful at Liza Schwartz Jewelry, a gems shop run by a South Beach native. Schwartz draws inspiration for her playful leather bracelets, crystal amulets, and rose-gold earrings from her travels, and makes every piece by hand in Miami.
4. The Webster
When it comes to high-end accessories, it’s hard to beat The Webster as far as accessories shops go. This luxury store, founded by Parisian Laure Hériard-Dubreuil, is known over the world for its carefully edited selection of ready-to-wear items in the Art Deco District. Here, you’ll find unique items such as Stella McCartney pinkie rings and gold-studded leather Chloé bags next to lavish Valentino lace scarves and silk-lined Alexander McQueen gloves.
When you want to leave a lasting impression, you need to use a spritz of high-quality fragrance tailored to your personality. At Babalú perfume shop on Lincoln Road, an invisible “perfume genie” helps you pick out the perfect bottle depending on your mood, gender, and scent preferences. Step up to the flagship store’s interactive screen and rub the digital bottle to release the genie. The genie will guide you through the selection process, where you’ll customize a bottle composed of any combination of smells and ingredients, from the general smoky and floral categories to specifics such as patchouli and orange. Once you’re satisfied with the selection, the fragrance-finder curates a list of perfumes that best fit your desires. You can then smell-test the bottles and walk out of the accessories shop having bought your new favorite wearable aroma.
