Miami’s balmy December weather gives those who work or play in the art world a chance to break away from their traditional all black uniforms during the fairs and other festivities surrounding Art Basel. While several attendees took this to the extreme (we saw wearable neon signs, a headpiece adorned with plastic sunglasses, and an ensemble constructed entirely of balloons), others chose outfits more noteworthy for the ability to easily transition from booth hopping by day to soirée socializing by night than for attempting to make a bigger statement than the art on view! Breezy, patterned dresses and jumpsuits reigned supreme as did swapping stilettos for sneakers or sandals, but what caught our attention throughout the week was the focus on modern minimalist pieces in white, chic as well as sustainable brands, and the variety of international visitors who donned clothing created by local designers from their home countries.
