In the midst of summer enthusiasm overload, we’re seeing lots of bold, bright colors flooding the racks everywhere, from our favorite online shopping oases to our most-visited local haunts. Even more apt for us Miami gals, there’s a particular focus on palm prints and accessories with an ethnic edge — each of which is welcome for year-round wear here in the sunny sub-tropics.
So, of course some of our most coveted spots are looking at us for an extra boost of inspiration (after all, we do cheeky neon better than anyone, right?).
We were given a healthy dose of Miami scenery from Free People, and now, upon the digital delivery of their latest vintage collection, Nasty Gal credits Miami (and the beloved hip-hop meets alternative music mongrel M.I.A.) as the main muse for their recently released vintage-sourced summer lookbook. Among their inspiration board you’ll find blinged-out ‘90s Versace ads, a Miami lifeguard hut, and flamingos (obviously). Channeling all of the above, their new items couldn’t be more perfect for the current weather situation, prompting looks like a graphic sunsuit, neon floral mini-dresses, palm-tree embellished denim, and beachy vintage tees. Excuse us while we drool...and shop.
