During our hunt (and it’s a hunt) for fashion on the streets of Miami, we spotted several styles that made our city hold its own. Men were sharp in 2011, dressing up in fitted pants and blazers, mostly all black with an additional added accessory like a pair of sunglasses, fedora or the must-have accessory of the year, the bow tie. The ladies rocked the color blocking trend with bold colors and accessories for the first half of the year, but when the climate turned hot and humid, Miami kept it easy and stress-free in a romper matched with wedges for a relaxed and refreshed look in that 96 degree weather. The classic floral print paired perfectly with stripes but it also went well with solid colors during the spring and summer.
Round sunglasses and neon yellow jewelry or bags were the hot accessories, if you found them. Creeper shoes haven’t made it yet to Miami, but the Jeremy Campbell booties were everywhere. Coral was the trending color at the stores, but it we did not spot an overspill of it on the streets.
As we head into the winter, Miami turns to layering. Most of us don’t have the weather appropriate winter gear to sport when we are hit with a cold front, so at least keep a scarf (love the J.Crew cashmere wraps) in your car or bag, it will save you when the weather slightly dips without notice.
Thanks for everyone who let us capture your styles in 2011.
