It's A Shore Thing

Hunting & Gathering


If you don’t have plans to embark on a luxurious getaway in island paradise this season, you can at least dress like you do. Typical Floridian attire embodies the simple, seemingly effortless ensemble of a swimsuit, flip flops, shorts and a tank—perhaps even a playful floppy hat or fedora thrown into the mix—but Shore on St. Armands Circle amplifies beachy attire by incorporating influences from California fashion exhibited through companies like Brandy Melville and Roxy; care-free lifestyle meets coastal chic. Situated beneath its complementary restaurant, Shore breeds not only its own brand of clothing, accessories, decor and collectible goods, but its own lifestyle as well, providing an upscale perspective to the coined “beach bum.”

Upon entry, you feel as though you have already stepped foot right onto shore, appropriately so, with the array of nautical ornamentation like ukuleles, waves adorning the walls and wooden surfboards suspended from the ceiling. Men and women alike get lost in the teeming displays of clothing, each separated by color scheme, theme and purpose. Among the trendy sunnies, dainty jewelry, two-piece sets, graphic tees, and bikinis and swim trunks, the convivial trifles in between will hook and reel in your attention like a sea bass. Shore is the beacon of countless fun items like coolers, picture frames, stylish canteens and plenty more. Chill out with your favorite beverage in the pool, with one of the fruity drink holder floats, or lose yourself in the extraordinary photography in “Escape” by Gray Malin, one of the many intriguing coffee table books sold at Shore, among others about succulents, salads-in-a-jar, and selfies of men with dogs. Find the perfect gift, or treat yourself, at arguably one of the hippest stops along the circle.
