#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?

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Cuban Rice at Miami Swim Week

Cuban-Rice-Miami-Swim-Week-Title

Rejoice! Miami Swim Week is finally upon us and our favorite swim and resort designers are ready to wow us with their new collections. Among them is Cristy Rice of “Real Housewives of Miami” fame who will unveil the latest collection for her swimwear line Cuban Rice: “Jewels”. The collection will expand upon the line’s signature rich colors, sexy styles, and fun prints to include styles in crochet, macramé, pastels, exotic animal prints, and jewels – everything Miami needs to make this summer endless.

Be the first to preview “Jewels” this Miami Swim Week at MIAMI Magazine’s Splashion, Nikki Beach’s What Women Want: SPF Swim Week, or at Swim Show‘s Booth #1776 in the Miami Beach Convention Center. In the interim, channel the island vibes that inspire Cristy with our photos of Cuban Rice‘s reversible Gypsy Gypsy bikini in action at Shadow Point, a historic Key Largo vacation home.

#ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Nicaragua Beach Style

We have already established that Miami is the queen of beach style but, like everything in Miami, that beach style is the product of a melting pot environment. As such, we have always been a little curious to study how our beach style compares to beach styles elsewhere. During our recent visit to Nicaragua, we began our research at the Hacienda Iguana Beach Club, which is located in front of the internationally-renown surf break at Playa Colorado. The Beach Club’s restaurant, tiki bar, pool, and handful of hammocks gave us numerous options from which to sip a frozen cocktail and people watch.

Like other surf destinations in Central America, Playa Colorado is primarily visited by international visitors and ex-pats that are a) surfers, b) surf photographers, c) surfer wives/girlfriends/groupies, or d) all of the above. The beach style was composed mainly of functional swimsuits from brands like Roxy, Quiksilver, and O’Neill – our surf crew’s beachware was no exception. Beyond swimsuits, the style was casual. Our favorite non-swim staples were the bohemian cover-ups and accessories.

While we are partial to Miami’s elegant and flashy beach style, we brought back a little of Nicaragua’s laid-back beach style with us to Miami. Check out some of the beach style photos we snapped during our trip below for inspiration! We definitely took notes.
