All the outfits you should carbon copy from Miami Swim Week
Miami Swim Week made a big splash this year. Filled to the brim with models, influencers, flashy fashion shows, bikini bods, celebrities, and of course, posh soireés, we’re basically dubbing it a perfect weekend.
Even though most of us are only witnessing the litness of Miami Swim Week from our couches via Instagram, we can still see how bomb the whole 2018 event was (and it gave us major fomo).
Also, it’s one of the few cities in the US where you can either go hard in a party dress or go home in a pair of cutoff shorts and a bikini, and vice versa. You don’t have to go all the way to Europe to party in your bathing suit.
We’ve collected some of our top looks from the week from our fave celebs, models, and influencers so that you have inspo for the rest of the year. Save these fits asap for your next slayage (and no, it’s not just bikinis).
1. Caroline Vreeland
Is there anything that this angel can’t do? Our darling musician, actress, and sex columnist for “CR Fashion Book,” loads up the heat in a denim Diesel dress with lethal pointy toe heels. If you want to show up on a date and be the bawse, wear this show your potential boo that you ain’t the one to be messed with.
2. Justine Skye
This purple-haired babe only wore this incredible, sporty fit at the Sports Illustrated Swim Show, but we hope that she can wear it again! We definitely need to dial her stylist ASAP – while we may not all be able to afford kicks from the Off White x Nike collab, we can manage to rock parachute pants, a cute ass bodysuit, and some high tops (I know you all have some of those in the back of your closet).
If you wanna go lowkey for the day? Just swap the asymmetrical top for a PG muscle tee.
3. Camille Kostek
Spotted at a casting for Sports Illustrated, the model rocked sock heel booties with cargo pants and a white tank top. I mean, this outfit is pretty much a chic, grown-up take on the Cady Heron look.
Now, are you willing to buy cargo pants and sock booties because you saw Camille Kostek wear cargo pants and sock booties? Because we are. This look is great for the “this is a casual, but not sooo casual,” look.
4. Charlotte McKinney
What exactly IS Miami Swim Week without this blonde bombshell? She sets the room on fire in a simple, silky Marc Jacobs dress with satiny Stuart Weitzman yellow heels.
If you are the type of girl who can’t live without wearing all black, maybe you can try to introducing little pops of color with a small accessory or a sexy statement shoe. Be warned: you will make some heads turn.
5. Avery Rose Brown
Despite being a runway show, this editorial-esque look is something to absolutely try IRL! I’m so into trying this fit for a vacay in Cabo or even just chilling on the beach in your hometown (especially if you want to stunt on any hometown hotties).
If you want to keep it modest, add a pair of cutoff shorts and cowboy boots. But, absolutely DO tie a bandanna on a boot like Pamela Anderson.
6. Shea Marie of Peace Love Shea
Play around by mixing vintage logos (in this case, the classic Fendi Zucca) and stripes (Shea’s own swim line, SAME) to create the ultimate beach #ootd.
7. Chrissy Rutherford
Square toe shoes are in and so are shirt dresses. Channel the “Harper’s Bazaar” Senior Fashion Editor by elevating your fit with a summery woven bag and tiny sunglasses for that L.A. meet St. Tropez feel.
We are into it.
8. Joy Corrigan and Afyia Bennett
Our faves slay in the shade with BBQ-friendly fits (something you may need to pull together in this last month of summer). You can either go for Joy’s laid back vibe with denim shorts, red bodysuit and casual heels, or pump up the party in Afiya’s striped two piece with statement heels.
9. Olivia Culpo
We thought that gladiator-style sandals were supposed to rot inside our closets (or frankly, be given away) back in 2009, but the real life Veronica Lodge makes us want to dust off our once-beloved shoes – especially when you add some chic and shine to them. Make these tbt shoes 2018 with a timeless off-the-shoulder dress.
10. Sif Saga
Remember the geek glasses trend that took over the model community last year (and in the early 2000s, and before that, and before that)? You can rock ’em as your summer staple, too, with a simple black tank top and metallic jeans. The glasses and some statement bottoms will definitely elevate your casual look and make things look more put together.
11. Tash Oakley
The bikini blogger/co-founder of Monday Swimwear rocks her own design (because, duh, #bossmoves). We totally dig how this two-piece can pull off as an elevated jumpsuit, while still being super beach bar appropriate.
13. Hailey Baldwin
The newly engaged, soon-to-be Mrs. Bieber, swept us off our feet in a neon yellow dress and Yeezy dad sneaks. Where did you get Hailey’s dress, Maeve (the model’s stylist)? You can replicate this look by pulling out your old neon American Apparel dress and some old, chunky sneaks (no, you don’t have to drop a grand on Yeezys to copy this lewk).
14. Nonny Mulholland
Following Tash Oakley’s sartorial chops, the model/muse wears this Cher-esque two piece on the runway. Add some spice to this look with winged eyeliner, big hair, nude heels, and a nude lip (for a Lana del Rey-inspired touch).
15. Yovanna Ventura
Carrie Bradshaw and Cher Horowitz link up to make this super stylish mix of square toe shoes, seersucker jumpsuit, and a sheer, white top. No computer outfit generator needed.
We’re also so into the statement earrings, and think it’s something you should incorporate into any outfit in your near future.
16. Oleema and Kalani Miller
MIKOH had an epic runway show for sure, but we also can’t afford to miss out on copping the vibe of the founders’ fierce fits! FYI, this look is totally appropriate enough for your summer school #ootd (if you’re actually in summer school, and if you are, we’re so sorry and we hope you’re free soon enough before this gorgeous weather is over).
