    When you want a major pop of color in your life, perhaps no other designer can give you an instant mood elevator quite like Carlos Miele. The Brazilian designer showed off his fall '13 collection at the 15th anniversary of Miami Fashion Week last Wednesday with a brightly hued range of flowing gowns, patterned jackets, and, of course, the perfect jumpsuit.

    And, if you lean toward the somber end of the rainbow, Miele debuted bold black-and-white frocks, dramatic midnight-blue dresses, and even skinny leather pants — all sleek and polished. Perfect for warm-weather getaways, sophisticated going-out looks, and red-carpet glam moments — it's no wonder that Miele was lauded with MFW's International Designer of the Year Award.

    Because this bold Brazilian is no stranger to the Magic City, we tapped him to share his go-to spots, from luxe boutiques to the sexiest pool we've seen in ages. With this handy Miami cheat sheet, we're guessing your spring break next vacay won't exactly be like Harmony Korine's take on a beachy jaunt. Click through to see Carlos' ultra-cool list — we guarantee you'll be searching for flights faster than you can say "I'm in Miami..." Well, you know the rest.
