From colorful backpacks to $24 necklaces, here are some shops you can't miss.

There's lots to see on this bustling street in Nolita, from a can't-miss men's suit shop to vintage designer boutiques.

Only Hearts
230 Mott Street
What brings shoppers here is the store's gorgeous lingerie line, but there are other finds here as well -- from $24 gold necklaces to the perfect Spanish espadrilles.

Use Your Head | Shop for a Cause
262 Mott Street
At this boutique, you can shop AND be charitable at the same time, because all the proceeds from the designer goods here go to ACE, an organization that helps the homeless rebuild their lives.

262 Mott Street
This Swedish brand has been making pitch-perfect gear in Europe for decades, but it's only recently caught on in these States thanks in no small part to its collection of cheery, charming backpacks (or "kanken"), which range from $40-$65.

Lord Willy's
223 Mott Street
A quintessential British men's tailor, the well-appointed shop has everything from custom suits to the requisite umbrellas.

217 Mott Street
From classic Chanel bags to flashy '90s Gucci, you'll find some of fashion's the most iconic (and upscale) vintage at this insider-favored shop.

Rebecca Taylor
260 Mott Street
A cozy home for a designer revered for her feminine-bohemian aesthetic: The stand-outs here are Taylor's signature prints and dresses.

A Detacher

262 Mott Street
Owner and designer Mona Kowalska has managed to fly under the radar for years, but her ladylike dresses and separates have made her an editor favorite for years.

Marmalade Vintage

178 Mott Street
For those willing to venture a bit further south, Marmalade is a true reward. It's packed with an excellently-edited selection of vintage clothing and accessories, and prices are shockingly affordable.

275 Mott Street
A much-beloved resource for wearable heels and chic flats -- it's tough to leave without only buying one pair.

MODO Eyewear

252 Mott Street
This shop offers high-end sunglasses you won't find in any chain sunglasses shop, including Jason Wu, Derek Lam, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and more.
