STYLE. GROOMING. INSPIRATION. ADVICE.
With an average temperature that ranges from the low 20s in the winter to around 30 degrees in the summer (and that’s without taking the humidity into consideration), it’s best to just forget about layers. Instead, keep your ‘fit clean and versatile so you’ll look fresh whether you’re pavement stomping or cocktail sipping.
Up top, make a revere collar shirt (AKA Tony Montana’s other little friend) the main focus of your getup and pair it with bright white denim – jeans or shorts, you decide. Then, slip on some black sandals and complement the monochrome tones of your bottom half with a bag to hold your phone, wallet, sun cream, obscure candy that's only available in America – you know, the essential stuff.
While there are plenty of reasons to check out the mainland city – neighbourhoods like the Design District, Little Havana and Wynwood (more on this later) – you’re going to want to stay in South Beach. And if you base yourself on Collins Avenue, somewhere around 17th Street, you’ll be within walking distance of enough spots to keep you busy for days.
Ignoring the 2.5 mile-long beach and countless swanky hotel pools on your doorstep, you’ll easily be able to stroll down to Ocean Drive, where you’ll find the Versace Mansion and the beginning of Española Way – a quirky Mediterranean-inspired 'village'. Or, if you’ve got a little room in your suitcase to spare and the urge to cop some serious streetwear, KITH Miami is up on the corner of 20th.
