Miami is a fashion forward city and people here have their own fashion statements, rather bolder ones! Miami is all about music, dance business and beaches and the best part is you can dress up in similar manner for all with just little variations. Here are some suggestions:

Women – Don’t be afraid to show skin and wear bolder colors. Women here play with colors and fabrics and so should you. You can go for printed tops and t-shirts along with jeans or trousers for colder days. For milder days you can pack shorts and tank tops. Miniskirts and t-shirts can also be packed. You can also go for a tank and a long flowy skirt. When the night falls, black is back so pack your LBD or sequined dresses to hit the nightclubs. Don’t forget your beachwear because that’s where the hottest parties are. And it gets colder in the evenings so pack a cardigan too.

Men – How can men lag behind women in this sultry incredibly unique city? Pack your beachwear along with some vests and Bermuda shorts. Leave your suit and tie at home because it is nothing like any other tourist city in the USA. For formal purposes, you just need a shirt and a trouser. Also toss in a jacket or hoodies for evenings.

Kids – Sundresses, jumpers and shorts are all cool for girls. Boys can go for capris, shorts and t-shirts. Do pack a lightweight jacket for evenings. Jumpers can be packed along with shrugs.

Footwear – Pack comfy shoes like flip-flops (for beaches), sandals and flat ballets. You can go for sneakers and boots too. Strappy shoes are cool for evenings.

Accessories – Funk up your ensemble with bold and junk jewelry and oversized totes. Don’t forget your chic sunglasses and a good sunscreen with high SPF.
