In the beautiful Plaza de la Constitución, you will find Athénée, an elegant boutique that's highly popular among the people of Málaga. It's practically their go-to store if they need an evening gown or a well-tailored suit. Here in this beautiful city, dinner parties are a dime a dozen. Even when you're just visiting here, you might meet a friend, and probably, that friend might invite you to an elegant soiree of a beautiful gala. But since you didn't plan on going to those sorts of events, what do you do? Head on over to Athénée and they'll get you all glammed up!
Calle Marques de Larios
Calle Marques de Larios isn't necessarily a shop, per se, but rather a whole famous strip that Malagueños flock to when they want to treat themselves to something expensive. A quintessential European designer outlet area! Want new coat from Zara perhaps? Or how about a new dress formBershka? Why not an impeccable suit from Massimo Dutti? And to cap it all off, sparkling rings from Pandora! Yep, all of these amazing brands line this beautiful street. It's as if you're walking through a street in Paris or Milan. But then, you might smell the ocean from here and you'll remember that you're actually in Málaga!

One of the reasons Malagueños are so fashionable is that they understand the worth of vintage clothes. Paris isn’t the only city into vintage fashion! A lot of the classic styles the defined previous decades and eras can be found in this fashionable coastal city. And that's because Malaga has embraced them! One that's a must-visit is Epoca Vintage&SecondHand. Yes, most of what you'll see in this quaint little space are—as the name already suggests—secondhand clothes, however, that doesn't diminish their value nor their style. A lot of the pieces here are still of very high-quality and oh-so chic!

Do you know what the best part about vintage-shopping is? You might find designer clothes are more affordable prices. At least, that's what you'd get at Flamingos Vintage Kilo Málaga. Perhaps, out of all the vintage stores on this list, this one embraces famous brands the most. Sure, Málaga already has a lot of designer stores, but what you might see here are pieces that are unique and rare. A lot of what they sell are second-hand pieces from the 80s and 90s, just in time too because those very same styles are coming back. In fact, some of them never really went away!

If you loved Flamingos Vintage Kilo Málaga, you like Peninsula Vintage Clothing too. Both stores are run by the same people, which means you'll also see a ton of old but still good-as-new designer pieces here. But what separates the two, however, is while the former focuses on classic items, the latter is more into streetwear. Denim jackets, oversized sweaters with crazy prints, neon-colored apparel—they have types of peices that define today’s Spanish signature style! Those same staples that you probably see the likes of Ariana Grande or Nicki Minaj? You'll probably find some of them here and at very good prices too!

Want to get that authentic Mediterranean Málaga look? To dress as if you've been living in Costa del Sol for years now? There's arguably only one store to help you achieve that: Quasipercaso Vintage. Here, the peices you'll find come from all the way back to the 1950s. So the styles that past generations are all for the taking here. But not only that, it's their golden accessories that are really the must-buys. Pendants, brooches, earrings, necklaces—beautiful trinkets that any Malagueno will probably have in his/her wardrobe. Shopping here is like taking a piece of the beautiful city with you.

Let's go back to more modern shopping. Over at Plaza de la Constitución, Intropia offers a vast array of local and beloved Spanish brands. They include both internationally-acclaimed designer labels as well as homegrown gems the world hasn't heard of yet. Whether you go for the more sophisticated Loewe pieces or the quirkier Delpozo dresses, they're all here ready to take your money. Most of what you'll find here are smart styles that make an impact at work or in more sophisticated settings. Tailored suits, sparkling dresses, elegant separates, and more. This is probably where the city's first-class elites get their clothes!
It's about time you go eco-friendly with your clothes and Veganized is here to help! More than just exceptional fashion pieces, these clothes were made with organic materials and through sustainable means. Since this Costa del Sol city is near the sea, taking care of their environment is pretty important to them. Many locals here have focused on spending their hard-earned cash on items they know were made ethically and will not produce waste.
