LUX Style: What to Wear to Art Basel 2013
The much anticipated Art Basel Miami Beach show will take over Miami December 5-8, 2013. With four days of special exhibitions and gallery showings, it's expected to bring more than 50,000 visitors. If you’re trying to decide what to wear, think about creating an avant-garde look by playing with bold colors, unique shapes and interesting textures through statement accessories. The fashionati should take inspiration from Chanel’s Spring 2014 runway eye makeup. This look is reminiscent of a parrot spreading its wings to show a wide array of vibrant hues. To stay in that mode, we’ve compiled a collection of jewelry, clutches, and footwear in vibrant hues that are sure to make a memorable outfit for Art Basel.

Let your jewelry act as a piece of wearable artwork by pairing with clothing that will act as a simple backdrop. Whether long or short, simple or elaborate, we like pieces that incorporate semi-precious stones and jewels with various metals, or pieces with intriguing silhouettes.
Give your outfit personality by drawing focus to your handbag. You can have a lot of fun with different mediums when it comes to clutches. Break out of the box and go for glitter, stingray skin, oversized tassels, funky shapes or bold prints.
Paul Andrew / Feather Heels
Giuseppe Zanotti / Suede Pumps
Casadei / Studded Heel Pump
Manolo Blahnik / Floral Pump
Jimmy Choo / Beaded Platform Pump
Christian Louboutin / Multicolor Python Pump
United Nude / Two Tone Booties
Show off some flair with your footwear. Don a simple, solid color heel with or without minimal decorative details to complement a printed or embellished outfit. Want your shoes to be the life of the party? Go all out with attention grabbing colors or with an adornment of feathers or rhinestones, and you’ll be sure to leave a lasting impression.
