South Beach Fashion Trends and Street Style

Even if you don't live in South Beach, you can totally dress like you do. Miami is its own fashion destination. If you’re looking for some SoBe sartorial inspiration while visiting our sunny shores, look no further. From beachy chic to polished nightclub attire, here’s the lowdown on the SoBe fashion trends and street style you need to start exploring the neighborhood.

Fashion Trends

Fashion’s biggest trends are constantly changing. What’s in vogue one week will be obsolete the next. Lucky for us, South Beach trends remain timeless. Influenced by Latin culture and tropical surroundings, SoBe’s style tends toward the bright, bold, and colorful. Multipurpose pieces that will take you from the beach to the streets seamlessly are a must. Think tropical prints, panama hats, comfortable sandals, and guayabera shirts for everyday wear.


Dress for the Weather

South Beach’s warm and humid weather plays the biggest role in style choices, down to the material. Stay away from cotton which absorbs water and opt for clothing made of synthetics. Look for breathable, light fabrics like linen, nylon, and polyester when selecting which short sleeve shirts, tanks, and shorts to pack. A blast of cold air will greet you when you step inside a restaurant, so a lightweight jacket or windbreaker is good to have on hand. Ladies will appreciate the versatility of a wrap scarf. Use it as a beach cover up, towel, headwrap, or drape over your shoulders while inside.

Style by Day

Wear casual clothing like flowing maxi dresses, bright patterned shorts, and comfortable walking sandals while walking the streets by day. If a day at the beach is on the agenda, a simple cover up or shirt over your swimsuit will suffice on your trek to the shore. Flip flops, sunglasses, and a tote bag are a great addition to your look.


Style by Night

Leave the beach clothes in the hotel and slip into something more formal for dinner. A button down shirt or cocktail dress will help you transition from the restaurants to the club. Anything goes when you’re taking on the town at night. Whether you have plans to attend a rooftop party or one of SoBe’s popular nightclubs, set the tone for the night with a party outfit to impress. Enhance your look with a clutch, nice watch, or jewelry for some sparkle.
