Summer Style Guide: Must-Have Looks from Miami Fashion Week 2014

Date posted: May 21, 2014

miami fashion week with vapor coutureMiami Fashion Week® took the magic city by storm last weekend. From May 15-18, fashionistas reveled in four nights of non-stop glamour, featuring showcases by designers from all parts of the world. We were lucky enough to get in on the action, watching runway shows, snapping pics and mingling with like-minded ladies (and gentlemen!). You’ve had a front row seat all weekend with our daily recaps. Now, let’s read between the lines and take a look at how you can bring some of those styles off the runway – and into your closet.

Throughout all four evenings, we noticed several re-occurring trends that you’ll love wearing this season. Here are our favorites:

Sheer Fabric: From all-over lace to mesh inserts to pleated chiffon, we saw through all types of ensembles… Translucent fabric adds a sensual touch to any style of clothing; plus, it’ll keep you cool in the summer. We especially loved the long, sheer cover-ups that flowed down the runways during the swimwear events.

Metallic: The floor sparkled with fancy footwear adorned with metallic studs, straps and buckles. Show-goers and models alike wore jewelry that featured mixed metals and lots of chain-links, and we even saw a few metallic skirts and jackets. Designers everywhere are experimenting with metallic fabrics and you’ll start seeing more in upcoming seasons!


Prints & Patterns: Printed fabrics dominated over solids; show-goers rocked large-scale florals, stripes and tons of geometric patterns. Tie-dye presented itself both on and off the runways. During the eveningwear shows, we saw flowers go 3-D in the form of ornate appliqués.


Black & White: New takes on this classic color combo, using detailed prints, looked chic and modern on everyone who chose this look. We fell in love with one intricately patterned tunic and were inspired by a pair of graphic pants – time to go shopping!

Nude Footwear: Everywhere we turned, shoes were colored nude; we saw high heels and flats, sandals and pointy toes, and every style in between. And we loved it! Get a pair of caramel-colored sandals with turquoise accents to show off your pedicure this summer.
