LUX Style: What to Wear to Art Basel

Art Basel Miami Beach is just around the corner, which means that attendees are facing the essential question: “What should I wear?” As the show is a cultural and social highlight for the city, any ol’ outfit just isn’t going to cut it. But don’t fear! We’ve got you covered with inspiration on what to wear, how to turn heads with eye-catching pieces and borrowed ideas from art pieces that will help you steal the show!

Take a cue from paintings and mix textures in your ensemble. Start by pairing Alice and Olivia’s metallic gold ballerina bodysuit with Enza Costa’s chiffon pleated maxi skirt. The soft rose petal shade complements the gold in an unexpected manner. Layer on ONE by June’s fur vest to play against the chiffon and shimmer jersey. Step into patent leather wedge pumps with ankle strap by Burberry Prorsum. Finish the look with the casual and lux elements of Marie Turnor’s leather picnic clutch and Marc by Marc Jacobs’ gold link toggle necklace.


If botanical artworks are up your alley, why not wear an outfit inspired by it? ALC offers the Molly print blouse in indigo with a smattering of dusky rose. Combine the colorful collarless button-down with Catherine Malandrino’s blue zip-up leather pants. Play out the colors further by adding on Chan Luu’s mixed agate wrap bracelet and Rebecca Minkoff’s metallic navy quilted handbag. Then, sprinkle in neutral pieces including Jenni Kayne’s long trench coat in taupe and NicholasJoclyn nude high heel sandals to balance the look.


Coordinate your outfit around your shoes to let them do all the talking. Try an over-the-top style like Christian Louboutin’s guerilla studded suede bootie in Caraibes. Pair the boots with Juicy Couture's raglan lace sleeve LBD. Keep accessories minimal with Campbell’s claw ring and Michael Korssilver and crystal link bracelet. Finish by juxtaposing a little texture with Rebecca Minkoff’s fur wallet on a chain.
