#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – 7 Tips to Step Up Your Summer Style

The end of summer is looming. As of tomorrow, we have officially one month to make a lasting impression this summer season. Lucky for us, we paid attention to the runways and picked up 7 tips for stepping up your summer style. Lucky for you, we believe that “sharing is caring”.

1. Embrace mesh. This year, mesh has nestled its way into the summer runways and into our hearts. We’ve spotted it playing a supporting role, like in the cap sleeves of the Mirame Swim Ellen Bikini below, and center stage as both tops and dresses. Which role it plays is up to you but, trust us, you need to embrace it.

#ThankYouMiami for (Swim Week) Fashion

Had your fill of Miami Swim Week recaps? Worry not – this is not your average runway rehash. Au contraire, this post is about celebrating the #ThankYouMiami moments we encountered hidden amidst gorgeous swimwear (i.e., is that really Kelly Slater?). Freshen up that glass of prosecco and relive with us the 10 reasons why Miami Swim Week is one of the most exciting seasons of Miami life.

10. Pool parties on the catwalk. Who better to redefine the runway than the epicenter of fun in the sun? 1 out of every 2 showcases this Miami Swim Week was in, over or around the water. We have also heard that 80% of all statistics are made up.

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Miami Swim Week Style Diary

Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-Miami-Swim-Week-Style-Diary-Title

Miami Swim Week kicked some serious butt – including ours, which means our current state of affairs involves our bed, lots of tea, and Netflix. That said, our week-long over-exertion was well worth it. One of our favorite parts was joining our fellow Miami-ans in showcasing the local collective style through our own personal lens. Check out how we gave the Miami style our individual twist below! Can you tell that as the days passed we got better at dressing for the heat?
