Art Basel is upon us: that Instagram-friendly week in which the art world — and with it, the fashion pack — descends on Miami for parties, pool time, and even some art. But being well-dressed during Basel isn’t hard — the key is looking warm-weather appropriate but not too summery, along with doubling-down on comfort. Eschew the bodycons and revealing cutouts for looser-fitting garments and odd accessories; try unusual combinations like platform shoes with vintage denim.
In honor of the week, the Cut searched far and wide for the best luxurious things (many of them big splurges) to wear in Miami this week. And if Basel isn’t in your cards, then consider this slideshow a form of warm-weather escapism. Click through the slideshow below to see our picks.
