Here comes the heat, the humidity, and the sweltering days. For other cities, that means stripping down to the bare basics and just toughing summer out, but in Miami, the middle months are our time to truly shine. We've got warm-weather dressing down pat, from bright and breezy colorful tees to beach-ready caftans, letting the heat provide the backdrop for some truly inspired looks.So, for the ultimate in beach-to-town dressing, we hit Lincoln Road, Ocean Drive, and Collins Avenue — the heart of SoBe — to glimpse real MIA gals sporting their tried-and-true summer styles. Trust, they didn't let us down. Miami denizens sported cheeky bows and colorful dresses, creative cut-outs, and even the odd pair of cherry-red skimmers. Take a peek for proof that no one does sunshine chic quite like the ladies of the 305.
