1203 N. High St., Short North
What does the winner have that the runners-up don't? Men's clothes. And we're willing to bet that's what made the difference for Milk Bar, a Short North shop that gets unilateral support for its trendy selection.
These pieces aren't made to toss when the seasons change, though. Instead, the hand-picked pieces from labels like Cheap Monday, William Rast and J. Brand reflect a fashion-forward, worldly aesthetic that's both sexy and comfortable. Plus, the boutique gets major brownie points for sponsoring all sorts of dress-to-impress events around town.
Runners-up: Rowe, Ladybird
