Welcome to Miami: 3 Things to Know Before You Go


First, let’s get you in the right mindset. Click this and turn your volume on high.

Okay, now it’s down to business. You’ve booked a trip to Miami – but before you hit up those white sandy beaches and over-the-top nightclubs, there are a few things you should know about this city’s dress code. The most important? Leave all preppy polos at home. Just do it. Read on:

More is More
Have a few bangles on? Add more. Showing a little skin? Show more. Here, stacks of gold arm candy and peekaboo tops are an absolute must.

Color is the New Black
When in Miami, resist the default option of standby neutrals and go instead for bold, standout colors. I’m talking retina-popping hues like neon pink and electric blue – and if they happen to be on a kaftan, well, bonus points for you. Remember: if it can stop traffic, you should probably wear it.

One-Pieces Rule
In most parts, bikinis are the popular ones. But in Miami, a one-piece isn’t just considered a swimsuit – it’s deemed an outfit. Add shades, a pair of wedges, and hop from rooftop to rooftop.
