Known as “the Beverly Hills of the Southwest” and home to the largest shopping mall in the Southwest, Scottsdale’s high-end fashion options are endless. Shop like the stars and treat yourself to luxe goods during your Scottsdale getaway.

Scottsdale Fashion Square

Prada. Gucci. Louis Vuitton. We hope you saved your pennies, because Scottsdale Fashion Square has every designer brand your heart desires sprawled out across 2 million square feet of space. Your wallet will be burning a hole in the pocket of your Joe’s Jeans as you skip from store to store.

Scottsdale Quarter

If you’re looking for some fresh air and a reason to explore the great outdoors, then head north to open-air shopping center Scottsdale Quarter. This sunshine-filled mall will lure you in with promises of Apple products, Kendra Scott jewelry and lululemon sportswear.


Scottsdale is one of only five cities in the United States with a LATHER shop. Using pure essential oils, vitamins and antioxidants, and rare fruits and herbs, LATHER’s body care products are free of synthetic fragrances and parabens. You may be tempted to take a bite out of the coconut crème body whip, the lavender lime shampoo and the pink grapefruit body scrubs.

Oliver Smith Jeweler

Take home a timeless and unique piece of jewelry from Oliver Smith Jeweler. Designer and store owner Oliver Smith has been crafting elegant pieces in Arizona since 1981. You can also snatch up pieces from other fine jewelry designers including Buccellati, Chopard, Hermès and more.

Scottsdale’s Vintage Boutiques

Mine for vintage finds, from Chanel bags to Pucci dresses, at some of downtown Scottsdale’s vintage boutiques, including Vintage by Misty and Fashion by Robert Black. Misty Guerriero collects the vintage pieces for her shop during trips to Europe throughout the year. She curates high-end designer clothes, bags and accessories from the past century. Peek in to Fashion by Robert Black to peruse co-owners Robert Black and Doreen Picerne’s selection of vintage finds, from red carpet masterpieces to 1960s shift dresses.
