Summer 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to Mercedes Benz Miami Swim Week

Mercedes Benz Swim Week kicks off today in Miami! Today’s What to Wear request is for you fashionistas who will be frolicking down in South Beach this weekend.

Tawanda writes, “Hi Claire!!! I will be attending and working swim week this year and I wanted to know what could I wear that would be comfortable and cute in Miami in July? Miami and July should never be used in the same sentence. Thanks!”

As the uniform for backstage attire usually calls for an all-black palette, tap into the What to Wear As A Member of Adurey Smaltz’s The Ground Crew  During Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for a few wardrobe ideas. Tweak these style inspirations just a tad to fit the Miami weather.

And for those moments away from the Swim Week backstage frenzy, make sure to pack a few South Beach worthy essentials.

Take in the shows draped in a Halston Heritage halterneck maxi dress highlighted by a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti cutout sandals or a lime gladiator flat sandal.
