During our hunt (and it's a hunt) for fashion on the streets

of Miami, we spotted several styles that made our city hold its own. Men were

sharp in 2011, dressing up in fitted pants and blazers, mostly all black with an

additional added accessory like a pair of sunglasses, fedora or the must-have

accessory of the year, the bow tie. The ladies rocked the color

blocking trend with bold colors and accessories for the first half of the year, but when the climate turned hot and humid, Miami kept it easy and stress-free in a romper matched with wedges for

a relaxed and refreshed look in that 96 degree weather. The classic floral

print paired perfectly with stripes but it also went well with solid colors

during the spring and summer.

Round sunglasses and neon yellow jewelry or bags were the

hot accessories, if you found them. Creeper shoes haven't made it yet to Miami, but the

Jeremy Campbell booties were everywhere. Coral was the trending color at the

stores, but it we did not spot an overspill of it on the streets.

As we head into the winter, Miami turns to layering. Most

of us don't have the weather appropriate winter gear to sport when we are hit

with a cold front, so at least keep a scarf (love the J.Crew cashmere wraps) in

your car or bag, it will save you when the weather slightly dips without

notice.

Thanks for everyone who let us capture your styles in 2011.
