Opening Ceremony

From indie clothing labels, to hard-to-find magazines and the cutest selection of "souvenirs" (cell phone cases, notebooks, and knick knacks), this chainlet (with outposts in New York, LA and Tokyo) is the last word in all things cool. And it's a favorite of stars like Kirsten Dunst and Chloe Sevigny. It's worth a visit for the people watching alone! (Last time we stopped by, Alexa Chung and Harley Viera Newton were trying stuff on.)

The Webster

Housed in a historical, pastel pink Art Deco building in the heart of Miami Beach, the Webster’s exterior is impetus enough to peek inside. But it’s the roster of well-edited labels (and fully stocked bar) that make it easy to while a few hours away in the centrally-located store.

After poking around the main floor—perhaps flipping through one of the magazines, Taschen books, or sipping a coffee from the bar—smart shoppers head to the bottom floor, where an array of affordable basics (Alexander Wang's T line), eclectic accessories from abroad (Spanish espadrilles) and hipster high-end labels (Suno, Boy.) await.

Ikram

Sculptural, modern (and lipstick red), this Chicago store is impossible to miss amongst the city's famous skyscrapers.

And the inside is just as remarkable: With designers like Alexander McQueen and Junya Watanabe happily coexisting with a selection of quirky housewares and art, you'll also find vintage clothing and accessories lovingly chosen by the founder and owner Ikram Goldman herself.

873 N Rush St  Chicago, IL 60611-2030, ikram.com

Fred Segal

Founded in 1960, this LA store is an institution, plain and simple. You can't visit the City of Angels without stopping in to one of the completely-ivy-covered locations in West Hollywood and Santa Monica.

And it's no wonder why the store is so popular among Californians: With a huge selection of denim, contemporary labels and designers, it's a one-stop shop for cool, laid-back staples, including Mother Jeans and Elizabeth and James.

With meticulously sourced vintage, art, furniture and, of course, clothing, America's concept stores are one-stop shops for cool.
