New York Fashion Week kicks off in Manhattan on September 8, which means a stylish crowd of designers, models, fashion editors and bloggers will be running round the city buzzing about what we’ll be wearing next year. Even if you’re not attending the runway shows, you can still get a major dose of high-style by visiting New York City‘s chicest boutiques. Here are the best shops from the industry’s most in-demand designers—many of whom are participating in New York Fashion Week 2016:

Opening Ceremony

With locations in the trendy Soho and Nomad neighborhoods, this label is all about providing an endless supply of stylish duds for the city’s cool kids. Co-owners Carol Lim and Humboldt Leon travel the globe looking for the coolest men’s and women’s brands to feature alongside their in-house line. Opening Ceremony often collaborates with other trendy companies (think everything from Keds to Coach), so look for many exclusive items you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

Marc Jacobs

Fans of the designer (whose show famously closes NYFW each year) should head to the West Village to get their Jacobs fix. That’s where you’ll find a variety of Marc Jacobs shops, all within reach of each other. There’s the main shop featuring his ready-to-wear collections, as well as a Marc Jacobs beauty store and even Bookmarc, which is full of stylish coffee table books, hard-to-find magazines and more.

Cynthia Rowley

Tucked away in the West Village, this designer’s shop perfectly showcases her whimsical womenswear items. Rowley is known for her colorful frocks, but has alsorecently expanded into the world of sportswear so don’t be surprised when you see a mannequin wearing a wetsuit chilling next to another one dressed for a night out on the town.

Vera Wang

You’ll find high ceilings and a chic, all-white aesthetic at this designer’s sophisticated Soho shop. The space is filled with women’s items from Wang’s namesake line, as well as selections from her lower-priced Lavender collection. You can see the clothes in action, as her latest runway show is usually projected onto a large wall in the shop. Looking for a wedding dress? Head uptown to Wang’s popular bridal shop.

Diane Von Furstenburg shop

Diane von Furstenberg

Located just steps away from the High Line (the elevated park von Furstenberg was instrumental in bringing to life), this Meatpacking District boutique was built on a curve to echo the style of the designer’s famous wrap dress. Yes, you’ll find her iconic dresses here, but the shop also boasts seasonal items like coats, as well as footwear, jewelry and more.

Christian Siriano

Project Runway’s most famous alum has a shop in Nolita, and it’s the perfect spot to showcase his buzz-worthy gowns. In addition to his red carpet-ready ensembles, the space also features Siriano’s perfume line and accessories to complete the look.

Ralph Lauren

This classic designer has a few shops around New York City, but the one you must visit is his Upper East Side women’s and home flagship store. Located in a Beaux Arts mansion built from scratch (and also once featured in Architectural Digest), visiting this decadent boutique feels like you’re truly getting a glimpse into New York’s glamorous past, but filled with current clothes.

The Row

Speaking of the Upper East Side, that’s where you’ll find the newly opened boutique for this line owned by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. The three-story townhouse elegantly displays Row items (everything from French-seamed T-shirtsto luxurious dresses) in a domestic setting with props like a dining table and a curated art collection filling out the space.
