23 Style Lessons We Learned From Miami

Photographed by Karla Garcia.
For the fashion folk at R29, there's nothing like a quirky-cool ensemble to stop us in our tracks. So, when we pulled up to Dadeland Mall in Miami for our most recent Shopping Block event, you can trust the locals' fresh spins on this season's trends had us doing some serious double takes. Shoppers took major style risks — skin-baring matching sets, chain chokers, and leather culottes included — and we caught it all in the snaps ahead.
Missed the action in Miami? You can still RSVP to our next event at Houston Premium Outlets in Cypress, Texas if you're in the area. We'll be heading down south to bring you the ultimate shopping experience, complete with curated local vendors, beauty and DIY stations, and a chance to win a cool $1,500 shopping spree. To tide you over until then, click through for 23 of Miami's boldest looks that we couldn't let go unnoticed.
