The Best Styles of Urban Beach Week 2013

Memorial Day Weekend on South Beach: It's not just a traffic nightmare. It's a great time to hit the streets and the clubs with the most stylish wardrobe you've got. And since South Beach is made up of about 90% partying tourists during the long weekend, we locals get to see what the rest of the country thinks about what they should be wearing when they get here.

Here's the head to toe action from Mansion to Ocean Drive, plus a special surprise from the police department. Enjoy!

Wick Up The Dreads

This dude from Northern Florida had four feet of dread locks standing up on top of his head through a hole in his hat on a windy day. Ladies and gentlemen, we present: The Human Candle.

Bikini Bottoms and Short Shirts, or Vest, or Just Bikini

To quote the lady who is bent at the waist, "Girl, you need to get you a big ol' strap-on dildo. You got a nice stroke."

The beauty of walking along Ocean Drive is that you get to wear your swimming clothes on the street. Add some flair with that top, and you've got style for miles.

Matching Items

Purple hat, purple boxers, purple belt, purple shorts. The guy likes purple. And the ladies do too.


The secret to standing out from the crowd and fitting in with the environment is all neon everything. It works at Ultra, it works on the beach.
