Miami chic attire refers to the stylishness, elegance, fashion or culture related to the city of Miami, Florida, specifically when it comes to clothing. It is often characterized as casual, light-colored attire appropriate for Miami's warm climate and humid weather.
Miami is considered to be a tropical city with high temperatures and humidity levels, so many residents dress appropriately to remain comfortable while living in or visiting the city. Loose-fitting linen shirts, pants, short sleeves and shorts are popular with men. Capri pants, sleeveless blouses and light summer dresses are popular with women. Light colors, particularly pastels, are heavily featured in fashion for both sexes. Sandals, flip-flops and open-toed shoes are also popular with both sexes. Hats are also quite fashionable, serving the dual purpose of accessory and sun block, whether they are baseball caps, visors or popular straw sunhats.
Because of its active social scene, aforementioned extreme weather and the abundance of outdoor restaurants and nightlife, Miami chic attire tends to be more informal and casual, even at traditionally formal events and venues such as dinner parties, galas and nightclubs. It is not uncommon for clothing to be more sheer and revealing, as many people tend to show more skin in this tropical climate.
