Granted, tropical weather is the bee’s knees — but, ugh, humidity and, ugh, sweat. Both are significantly less awesome. Plus, looking chic on an out-of-town getaway can be hard when you’re focusing all your energy on not melting in the sun. But fear not, you’ve got us to help you pack for high style in high temps. We've put together the Perfect Outfit for long, warm days in Miami or even hotter nights during a weekend escape to one of our nearby Caribbean cousins. See how even in balmy beach weather, you can look cool as ice.
Essential # 1: Asymmetrical Maxi Skirt — From the cut to the color, this minty fresh asymmetrical maxi skirt is perfect for taking you from day to night and is sure to be a closet staple this spring and summer.
Sanctuary 'Leotie' Crinkled Asymmetric Maxi Skirt, $130, available at Nordstrom; 4310 Ponce De Leon Boulevard, Coral Gables; 786-999-1313.
Essential # 2: Lacy T-Shirt — This cotton lacy box top in white offers a feminine alternative to a plain T-shirt, and the cotton fabric makes it easy for your skin to breathe in the hot temps. Plus, this Tibi style is a bit more fitted for a chicer, sophisticated look.
Tibi Cotton-Blend Lace Top, $265, available at Net-A-Porter.
Essential # 3: Cork Wedge Sandals — We love the added height of a wedge sandal, and this gorgeous brown option not only goes with everything, it's comfy, too.
Sergio Rossi Cork Wedge Sandals, $450, available at Shopbop.
Essential # 4: Horn necklace — Add some fun to your look with a simple statement necklace. This horn pendant from Michael Kors is a nice touch that calls to your wild side.
Michael Kors Horn Pendant, $125, available at Neiman Marcus, 390 San Lorenzo Avenue, Coral Gables; 786-999-1000.
