Santa Monica’s shopping scene consists of a high-end mixture of bohemian and designer shops. You can find exceptional vintage clothes and consignment gems at spots like The Closet Trading Company, and also find something more refined and elegant at a fashion boutique like Koi.

Venice is one of the more unique and memorable neighborhoods to go shopping in Los Angeles. One of our favorite shops there is Amiga Wild, which has an assortment of colorful home furnishings, jewelry and clothes. High-end fashion can be found at spots like the super modern Aust. and Abbot Kinney’s Skylark. Also, don’t sleep on the cheap sunglasses and souvenir nicnacs that are plentiful on the Venice Boardwalk.
West Hollywood has a more buttoned-up vibe than the beach neighborhoods of Los Angeles. You can find all of your brand names at The Grove shopping center, and a number of unique boutiques like DOPE and part-consignment shop Scout. Some other popular women’s clothing fashion boutiques in West Hollywood are Church and Wildfox.
Malibu’s shopping scene skews towards upscale beachwear, and it has department store favorites at the luxury Malibu Country Mart shopping center. Those looking for a different shopping experience can peruse fine jewelry, watches and antiques at Vintage Malibu. Some of our favorite shops for women’s and men’s clothing include Malibu’s AllSaints location, and Pinnacle.
On the way from the beach to Hollywood, Culver City is a beautiful place to stop off for some lunch or shopping. You can discover great women’s clothes and home accessories at shops like Midland and Reservoir, and a beautiful variety of shoes at Sole Society.
