How I love Miami. Not only is the weather just perfect, but the culture harks back to the days where dinner jackets were required and ladies always dressed to the nines. New York might be the city that never sleeps, but Miami is the city that never stops partying. I sometimes forget the elegance that makes up Miami. Wearing your favorite normcore looks in New York is considered nonchalantly chic, but toting fitness wear on Collins Ave. is just not acceptable. For folks who haven't yet traveled to the high-flying city of heat, always remember you can never be too dressed. With that being said, I created a comprehensive wardrobe for every Miami occasion. Brunch, lunch and supper- I guarantee these looks will have you appropriately dressed at all times.
Brunch: Omelettes and lattes never looked so glamorous. After your morning workout session, Miami ladies do not walk around in their sweaty Lulu ensembles. They head home and slip into brightly colored dresses and fun sandals for a day of shopping at the Bal Harbor shops. Even if you don't plan on dropping major dough at Saks, you will still want to dress the part. Look casually chic in a flowing dress and jeweled sandals.
Lounge: Sunny days might be relaxed by the pool or the beach, however your outfit is anything but. I personally favor a high waisted look, both for a bit more coverage and for the retro look. Don't forget a good cover up here! You never know when the beach days could go into beach nights, so bring along accessories just in case the music turns up and the cocktails start flowing!
Dinner: This is when the party really starts. Don't even think about wearing denim. When the humidity is high and the temps are even higher, you will want to wear the evening dress from the back of your closet. The most opportune time to break out the LBD you have been waiting months to wear. Find your most glamorous look for the night that will most likely go into the early morning.
