Miami-style dresses are made of light weight, easy to breathe fabrics in bright fun colors. Miami-style dresses tend to show more skin, following the philosophy of "the shorter, the better."
Miami-style dresses have been influenced by the large Latino population in the city. Dresses should be bold with bright colors and prints that show off a woman's curves. Bandage dresses are very figure forming. On a cool night, dresses are covered up by a light wrap, shawl or jacket. Miami-style clothing is considerably more formal than other states. Wearing high heels with a bright, tight, short dress and lots of bold accessories when going out for dinner is typical in Miami.
