Chicago, Top 3 Shopping Districts where Luxury Shopping is at its best.

Oak Street- Oak Street is known as the most prestigious and high end shopping street and district in the entire Midwest.  What makes it so great for Chicagoans is that you have the variety of Michigan Avenue, which is literally only 5 steps away, yet without all of the tourist crowds and commotion.  Oak Street has some of the most affluent big names such as Prada and Pratesi as well as popular clothing stores such as BCBG and Juicy Couture.  Barney’s New York has their new and improved location at the western end of the strip and other luxurious notables are David Yurman, Hermes, and Vera Wang.  It is definitely the best shopping location to see and be seen, and to enjoy the beauty of Chicago’s Gold Coast.

Halsted and Armitage Street- The small strips of Halsted St. (between Armitage and Webster) and Armitage Ave (between Halsted and Sheffield) in Lincoln Park is Chicago’s neighborhood yuppie spot for luxury shopping.  There’s something for everyone on these pretty tree lined strips.  We once again have BCBG, along with many other hot chains such as lululemon athletica, MAC Cosmetics, and True Religion.  There are also great cafés, chocolate shops, and pubs that populate the street, which can provide you with a needed break or a frosty beverage in between stores.

Damen Avenue-  What used to be the trendy, up and coming, hipster neighborhood of Bucktown is now a sought after mainstream place for “in the know” Chicagoans to go shopping and hang out.  The strip of Damen Avenue from North Ave to Armitage is packed full of upscale boutiques, popular chains, and unique specialty shops.  This really is the place for fashionistas to shop as there are several women’s boutiques that carry the latest styles.  What makes this area so great on a warm sunny day are the many restaurants and bars that have extensive outdoor patios.  This area definitely turns into a scene and can give your credit card a work out in more ways than one. 

The best way to complete your luxury shopping experience is to transport your goodies home in the trunk of a luxury or exotic rental car.  Not only can you make a statement on the scene, but you can experience your shopping trip to the fullest.  Call Imagine Lifestyles Chicago today so we can set you up with the perfect luxury rental car or luxury SUV rental for your day out on the town.
