    14th Street Shopping Guide

    From a spectacular denim store to one of the city's coolest gift shops, here's three stops you can't miss. (Published Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011)

    There's lots to see around this bustling street in the Meatpacking District, from a spectacular denim shop to one of the city's coolest hotel gift stores.

    400 West 14th Street
    Among the myriad finds at this 160-year-old cosmetics chain -- many of them unisex -- is one of the brand's best-sellers: the #1 Lip Balm, just $7.

    Jean Shop
    435 West 14th Street
    The name says it all: This place is all about jeans. They stock every wash imaginable, with a special focus on raw and selvedge denim -- or you can even create your own wash.

    The Standard Hotel's Gift Shop
    848 Washington Street
    Adding to the cool factor at this hotel is the gift shop downstairs, which stocks more than toothbrushes and t-shirts. Snap up jewelry pieces from local designers, quirky gadgets, and even handbags.

    Alexander McQueen
    417 West 14th Street
    Whether you can afford the clothing or not, it's worth stepping inside the Meatpacking District outpost of this iconic brand to get an up-close look at some of the label's breathtaking pieces.

    Puma the Black Store
    421 West 14th Street
    The concept outpost of the activewear chain, the Black Store stocks a more unique, high-fashion mix than one will ever find at Puma's other outposts, including exclusive items.

    449 West 14th Street
    A legendary small department store that attracts insiders and celebrities alike, Jeffrey has all the designer It-items one can imagine, from Celine bags to Louboutin heels.

    Diane von Furstenberg
    440 West 14th Street
    There's a reason this label has become as successful as it is: The dresses are flattering, the colors are sporty and optimistic, and the world overall feels like one anyone would like to inhabit.
