What to Wear: Miami Edition

East-coasters can attest to Spring playing awfully coy this season. With a persistent shroud of gray clouds threatening overhead, many have a longing for sun and heat. If your short-term forecast is showing an unfavorable outcome, perhaps a getaway is in order. A hotspot for many who seek sun, sand, and savory delights is Miami and for good reason. The city has something for everyone; indulging in tapas at The Bazaar, dancing with friends at Nikki Beach, or laying poolside at the Ritz Carlton in Bal Harbour. Yet, with all these options, packing can be difficult. Need some inspiration? Check out the following beach must-have items.

Poolside Style

When dressing for Miami, a bathing suit is clearly a must-have. Whether lounging by the pool, taking a dip seaside, or trying to beat the extreme heat, a bikini or stunning one-piece is top of mind. Since Miami embraces all styles and trends, opt for a bright and bold piece like the Missoni Mare Halter Swimsuit found at MarisCollective. The vibrant bikini is crafted from crochet knits, making it a chic choice for beach and poolside swimwear.

Eye Candy

You will definitely need sunglasses. From blocking out harmful UV rays to mastering the no-makeup-look, the perfect eyewear is your go-to item. Find your ideal match with Individual Custom Eyewear found at Taigan. Offering bespoke service and superior fit designs, the perfectly shaped frame is a sun-worshipper’s best friend.

Light Packing

Although beach-style is considered low maintenance, a few items still remain essential when spending the day surfside. Don’t leave home without a beach-worthy and stylish bag to hold all your valuables. The Apolis Market City Bag found at Respice Miami is not only big enough to carry everything required for a day of exploring and enjoying the beach, but it also contains a waterproof lining to keep your valuables protected. The nod to Miami with its “Miami Florida USA” stitching is a special touch.
