Upscale, Stylish, Chic Characterizes The Best Shopping In Harbor East

The shopping in Harbor East is a lot like the dining and accommodations, upscale and hip. Shopping row is on Aliceanna Street where you will find most of the area's cool retail spots.

National brands like White House Black Market, South Moon Under, and J.Crew are well-known names but they're also shops that require a little extra pocket change than your average clothing stores. What makes shopping in Harbor East more of an experience are its smaller, Baltimore-bred stores. Boutique shops like Handbags in the City, Sassanova, Urban Chic, and Amaryllis make up the rest of shopper's row. Sassanova is where you'll find chic shoes, clothing, jewelry, and accessories. Urban Chic carries contemporary men and women's clothing. Handbags in the City sells not only a full line of handbags and small leather goods but they also offer a complete line of merchandise for women. And if you're looking for unique yet affordable handcrafted jewelry, Amaryllis is where you may want to make a stop.

You'll also find stores like J. Crew and Anthropologie on International Drive, and fine men's shoes on Exeter Street. Even if you're looking for sporty gear, whether it be for a casual day out in Harbor East or for a serious workout, you can find what you need at Under Armour's Brand House on President Street or Lululemon on Aliceanna.

Overall, the stores on our top 10 list will have you styled in the best that Harbor East has to offer.
