Style File: Cracking the Miami Dress Code

miami style

Miami Vice introduced the world to Crockett and Tubb, and the deco and decadence of the Miami Beach lifestyle. Tight dresses, tiny hemlines, bright lights, little city, glitzy and glamorous Miami in a word is: spellbinding.

As identifiable as the city’s architecture, neon culture and nightlife is the fashion and the style of those who live there. White sand beaches, clear aqua waters, palm trees and pastel architecture are the backdrop and springboard for the fashion set’s distinct style.

Gianni Versace’s muse was the Miami maven. Celebrating the female form with body hugging silhouettes that highlight a woman’s curves and promotes her sensuality. Those style fundamentals are still a part of Miami’s essence today. Crop tops, cutout details, body conscious dresses, tropical kaftans and the itsy bitsy animal print bikini topped with a fedora are necessary wardrobe staples for those looking to emulate Miami’s sizzling style.
