Q&A: What to Wear to Work in Miami

Q:  I’m attending a business conference in Miami with my boyfriend in July.  I want to look fashion-forward but not out of place.  What should I wear to the day gallery sessions and the after parties?

Banana Republic Crochet Button ShirtdressA:  Miami style is fashion-forward and very body conscious.  But since you’ll be there on business, balance that image consciousness with business-appropriate attire that will help you beat the humidity and the heat.

For your day sessions, we have four outfit suggestions:
(1) Button-down shirt + Wide Belt + Pencil Skirt
(2) Cropped Jacket + Patterned Sheath Dress
(3) Floaty Blouse + Pencil Skirt
(4) Shirtdress

As for the evening after parties, remember that you’re still at a business conference.  Avoid overtly sexy styles, like deep plunging necklines and strapless dresses.  We’d recommend either wearing a dress–wrap dresses are simple and chic–or a blouse-skirt combination.  Stand out from the crowd not for the silhouette–but for the colors and the patterns you choose to wear.  Don’t be afraid to sport bright colors–they’re both on-trend and appropriate for Miami’s tropical weather.

One last thing–afternoon thunderstorms are quite common during the summer.  Don’t forget your umbrella and rain jacket!
