When i go back home to visit, i always pay a visit to Palermo Soho.The shops i go to are Lupe, De La Ostia, Sal si puedes, Seco, Mishka, Jazmin Chebar, Maria Cher (the last two are in shopping malls aswell), Felix and Sixfeet sell nice clothes more men, especially sixfeet t-shirts (for my partner)
Then if you are looking for something vintage, retro, etc. you have the 5ta. Avenida Gallery in Santa Fe Avenue (between Libertad and Talcahuano) basically there are shops where they sell second hand clothes,shoes and accessories.There are few shops that sell brand new clothe too.Then 5 minutes walk away from this gallery, Marcelo T. de Alvear 1441, there's Juan Perez which also sells second hand clothes but a little bit more high end (if it make sense ,you can find original Valentino coats from the 70's and stuff) for high prices.
There's also the Bond Street Gallery in Santa Fe Avenue (between Montevideo and Rodriguez PeŮa) there's tatoo shops, a few record shops (if still exist) and some clothes shops like Fujimoda and stuff,there's also a couple of shops that sells clothe for men ( i have to say most of the clothes sold there it's teenagery looking but that's my opinion).
Santa Fe Avenue has plenty of shops all along it (from Santa fe and Carlos Pellegrini to Santa fe and Coronel Diaz )
For shopping malls the best is Galerias Pacifico, google it and you'll see what i'm talking about, Paseo Alcorta and Alto Palermo sell nearly the same brands so...Patio Bullrich is more high end but you still find some of the brands you'll find in the last two mentioned shopping malls.
Hope this helps

I'm going to Buenos Aires in April. What kind of clothes should I take to wear there - in the day and night? Not sure how warm it gets in April.

It will be autumn by then, temperatures are between 17ļC and 24ļC so take a few jackets, as it can get cold at night

Well I already went and came back to my country! hahahaha
I went to Santa Fe, Florida (cool/scary hippies at night! lol!) and to some malls, it was a lot of fun and I bought a lot of things!

Oh,i'm glad you had a good time. Florida street is so touristy but, i guess is something you have to do if you go to Buenos Aires, mind you Galerias Pacifico is looovely as a shopping mall, i think is one of the best of the city in terms of arquitecture. Have to say, i actually havent seen such a amazing shopping mall like that in Europe yet. What about the Soho? that is a good area

Well my hotel was two blocks away from Galerias Pacifico so I went a couple of times. The only day I went to Soho was to see the Vans Shop! Lol! My dad had enough of shopping so I couldn't convince him to go to any market, but it's ok since I got to go to a few other Malls and manage to spend a few hours there seeing whatever I wanted And of course went to see some tango shows and went to see PIAF (epic play!). I posted most of the things I bought in the What did you buy thread I found this really cool jewelry shop in one of the malls called Etnia.
This is what I got there:

The firefly necklace, the peace signs bracelets and the fly necklace
Shopping in BsAs is always fun Want to go back again!! hahaha
