That idea of Miami as the capitol of leisure is a general myth. Even in the sunshine state where it’s always sunny, people have to go to work. Although we are lucky not to have to switch closets from rainy and snowy winters to hot summers, beach cover-ups, flip flops and sun lotions need to be retired for the week. We have selected the best stores in Miami where you can find a great selection of fashionable office attire.

Anya Ponorovskaya

35 N.E. 40th St.
Miami, FL 33137
(305) 677-5008
www.anyaponorovskaya.com

Ponorovskaya’s fourth boutique opened during Art Basel in Miami’s Design District (December 2009), down the block from Christian Louboutin, Marni and recently opened Dior Homme, Louis Vuitton, among others. Known for bringing to modernity an almost forgotten generation of fashion, “the designer’s retro flair has ideally blended with the cosmopolitan lifestyle of her local clientele since the opening of the boutique.” Her Miami client is genuinely sensual and feminine, yet refuses to pay for fashion trends and finds in her creations the appropriate balance of looks for work and leisure.

The Consignment Bar
5580 N.E. 4th Court
Miami, FL 33137

From office attire to evening gowns and sport coats to fur stoles, there’s not one hanger to be missed, because you never know what hides in those racks.Related: Best Men’s Shoe Stores In Miami

Atrium

Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 695-0757

This is the Miami Beach outpost of the well-established NYC store for edgy ladies and gents. Suitable for a fashion-forward crowd that doesn’t have to comply with rigorous etiquette, the store provides a curated selection of top sellers and up-and-coming designers. The merchandising and the cheery attitude of the sales associates will lead any customer to a purchase, even if they had just entered with the intention of browsing.

Duncan Quinn
4040 N.E. 2nd Ave.
Miami, FL 33137
(305) 671-3820
www.duncanquinn.comWhat began as a pop-up store on the ground floor of the Moore Building three years ago during Art Basel, it has since remained in Miami as Duncan Quinn. This is a sartorial heaven for any man in Miami who doesn’t want to look like there are too many pleats on his pants or like he’s wearing a hand-me-down jacket with the wrong shoulders.Related: Best Swimsuit Shops In Miami
