It’s official– Art Basel is among us again!
Although Art Basel Miami doesn’t technically start until Wednesday, the Basel madness has already begun. You know what that means? A gazillion gallery events all over town, artsy parties that go until the break of dawn, and of course the fashion.
To get back in the swing of Basel again, I co-hosted an ” Art of Dressing for Basel” event at Shop Emporium in Coral Gables. This was my first time visiting the shop and I soon as I laid eyes on the store, I knew this was a hot spot for Basel styling.
Dressing for Art Basel Miami is not just about great style; it’s about defining your individuality and wearing it on your sleeve (literally!).
Need a little help styling your Art Basel Miami look? I’ve narrowed down to a few style items that will get you Basel ready just in time for the week long champagne binge.
Art Basel is a great time to show off your personal style. Custom accessories or cute pieces from the Lil Miss Miami collection by TAudrey are a great way to show off your individuality and spark up a conversation.
A sparkly Number
I believe every woman should have a glimmery dress in her fashion arsenal and Art Basel is a great time to rock it! Sequin dresses are great for after parties and can also double as a holiday dress.
Basel weather is always questionable; so keep layering pieces close by. It’s always nice to have a great sweater, blazer, or kimono on hand in case the temperatures drop, or if you are enjoying an indoor event inside.
You may think that dressing for Basel means bringing a Picasso painting to life, but some of the best outfits I’ve seen are monochromatic ensembles in all black or all white. Mix these two classic hues for a polished look, such as this color-blocked jumper. Just add a few accessories and you are good to go!
Whatever you do, don’t head out for Basel without your one of a kind bag. I tend to lean towards clutches for Basel since they are easy to keep track of. If you can find one with a strap, even better, but remember it’s all about unique pieces that define your individual style.
Do you know what you will be wearing for your favorite Basel festivities?
