What To Pack for Miami Art Basel

This post comes from our NYC social media specialist, Joanna!

Oh Miami! Home to palm trees and sunshine. Pink skies and blue water. And through Sunday, it will be home to Art Basel, a traveling international art show. Almost one hundred thousand people from all over the world flock to the resort beach town to see the newest, brightest and most outrageous art in the world. The show is held annually in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong and serves as a stage for the world’s premiere contemporary and modern art shows. Art Basel was founded by gallerists in 1970 and has been a driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in the development of artists for over the last forty years. So what, do you ask, does a Free People girl wear to an event like Art Basel? Good question…


Keep in mind that there are numerous shows happening all over the city and at all times of the day. You’ll see party gowns and ripped boyfriend jeans. Leather mini skirts and floor length caftans. Sky high leather pumps and beaten up converse. You get the point. The only real thing you need to wear is confidence. Miami Beach is busting at the seams with culture right now, take advantage and be yourself. Be inspired by the creativity and energy that is flowing through the city. However, if you are needing some help getting started, I’ve put together three outfit ideas for various shows throughout the week with the help of my friends at Free People South Beach.

Stay tuned for more Art Basel coverage!

I just moved to South West Florida. It is really different here. As you pictured, the sunsets are always gorgeous. The land is flat here, opposed to my home in NH, which makes the sky wider and greater. There is inspiration every where in our world xx
