Here are five ways to head into 2019 with style.

BEST SMALL SPA 

The Standard Spa

Walking down The Standard’s wood panel corridor and entering itsTurkish-style hammam, you think,“Oh, it doesn’t get better than this.” Then you have a therapist perform the Hurt So Good massage on you and realize, “Oh, yes, it does.” 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach, 305.673.1717

BEST STATEMENT JEWELRY

Sevan Bıçakçi

Words truly cannot describe the mystical creations that emerge from the talented hands of this Turkish designer, a master of inversely carved gemstone jewelry. Just see his first timepieces and the new 50-piece Colección Paraiso inspired by Cuba and the Caribbean Islands. 140 NE 39th St., Miami, 786.409.7156

BEST MEN’S MADE-TO- MEASURE SUITS
Ermenegildo Zegna

This exceptional service starts with fittings at the shopper’s home or office and delivery of the final product within four to six weeks—with a label bearing the customer’s name. Zegna’s personalization pros have more than 500 fabrics to choose from and they even let clients design their own. 132 NE 39th St., Miami, 305.576.0179

BEST FUN VEGAN MENU

Planta South Beach

Planta South Beach proves boredom does not have to be a side effect of turning vegan. Case in point: mac and cheese, buffalo cauliflower, crispy “chicken” sandwich and the vegetable bento box, all of which are part of the eatery’s new lunch menu. 850 Commerce St., Miami Beach, 305.397.8513

BEST FLOWER SHOP 

Roses Et Pivoines

R&P is where you go when the experience of buying flowers is as important as what you get. Owner Eddie Soledad knows presentation matters, and that’s why his exotic blooms come in black wrapping paper that screams classic glamour. 164 NE 41st St., Miami, 786.452.7144
