As winter descends on much of the Northern Hemisphere, Miami plays host to Art Basel. And as the fashionable art world crowds stream out the doors of MIA International Airport, they’re greeted with the sweaty reality of a Floridian December.
So how is an art connoisseur supposed to run his/her way from a gallery to a musical performance to the beach and back without looking like a soiled towel from LeBron James‘ locker?
Lucky for you, there’s SlamXStyle, a curated outfit that is handpicked by our staff to make you look good. Right now we’ll focus on what to wear at Art Basel during the daylight hours, and check back tomorrow for your after-dark look.
