What to Wear To Swim Week

Here’s a guide on how to look hot and keep cool.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim is almost here. In fact, starting tomorrow July 17, the bikini will be the most talked about article of clothing for a while to come. And while, in this heat, it may seem like the best clothing option, as well, a two-piece doesn't’t exactly fit the dress code for the majority of the week’s activities. Here, however, are a few options that not only look great, but also pair perfectly with the humidity you’ll encounter at these outdoor fests and fetes.

The Outfit

Celine Iridescent Organza Pleated Skirt

Céline’s Iridescent Organza Pleated Skirt is a statement piece that is as light and sheer as it is lovely. Pair it with an equally light top and you’ll be as eye-catching as what’s on the catwalk. Find Céline in Miami at 191 N.E.. 40th St., Space 101, Design District

Pucci caftan

If you prefer a lightweight dress to don while you wait outside the tents, this Pucci caftan is an airy option. While technically it’s beachwear, this is Swim Week and what better place to work your beachwear into your daywear? Find Pucci in Miami at 155 N.E. 50th St., Design District.

Delpozo cropped top

If you dare to bare, a cropped top is a great way to keep cool. This look from Delpozo is a chic option for taking your midriff mainstream. The light hue will also keep the sun from beating down on you while you await the next show. Find Delpozo in Miami at 35 N.E. 40th St., in the Design District.

The Bag

Hermès tote - Garden Party

A Hermès tote, like the Garden Party, practically defines classic Miami’s style. Summer and linen in Miami go together like the sun and sunscreen, while the shape makes toting everything from a spare pair of sandals to a shawl for braving the ultra air-conditioned tents, easy and accessible. Find Hermès in Miami at 175 N.E. 40th St., Design District.

The Shoes

Christian Louboutin FlatChristian Louboutin Bella

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim takes place in the sand, which means you’ll want to leave your haute heels at home. Instead, for those who love a little lift, opt for a wedge, like the So Bella from Christian Louboutin. It’s a great sandal to give you a boost and still be able to balance while making your way to the front row.  And for those who don’t mind a flat, splurge on the Lady Flat, which will also add a little shimmer to your look. Find Christian Louboutin at 155 N.E. 40th St., Design District.
