Chicago is a shopper’s paradise, to be sure. But with so many great shopping neighborhoods and boutique choices, where do the in-the-know vintage hunters go to score truly amazing apparel and accessories? One thing’s for sure, you’ll find many of them in the infinitely charming Wicker Park neighborhood. Here are three high-quality Wicker Park vintage shops to get you started.
1323 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago
If 80s neon and 90s edginess is what you crave, then head over to Kokorokoko (try saying that three times fast!) and browse their curated selection of apparel and accessories (including an amazing selection of sunglasses and shoes) in an artful atmosphere. The helpful, knowledgeable staff will help you put together the perfect pre-millennium ensemble. Follow Kokorokoko on Facebook to find out about in-store parties and special promotions.
1721 W North Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
The offerings at Silver Moon make me think of 1930s and 40s starlets. This classy vintage boutique offers a sumptuous array of vintage fashions and accessories dating from the 1890s-1980s, with a heavy focus on 1920s and avant-garde designers. The carefully curated selection features high-quality, striking pieces for virtually every formal event. Brides looking for a unique gown will love Silver Moon’s stunning vintage bridal collection. If you’re looking for something a bit racier, check out the vintage lingerie rack.
Store B Vintage
1472 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60654
Designer brand vintage hunters will find many pieces to sate their appetites at Store B (think Lanvin, Valentino, Versace… you get the picture). This is also the spot to find timeless pieces like your go-to vintage leather jacket or the perfect pair of platforms. And the pièce résistance, Store B’s vintage jewelry selection, makes it impossible to leave this gem of a vintage boutique empty-handed.

Of course, bringing the right gear to keep your feet comfortable depends on what you plan on doing during the trip and the climate of the place you’ll be staying. In addition to any “specialty” shoe I might need (hiking boots, for example), I always bring comfortable and versatile footwear that won’t slow me down.
