By Jennifer Agress and Yours Truly

Such is Downtown where we discovered gems well worth a visit (on Monday you read about Area Code 305 Sports for the best sneakers).  Better yet, have lunch and do your own walking tour.

The Place for Sneakers

Not your usual Converse for hipsters

 

Now you have the eye popping workout clothes (Equilibrium Activewear)  and you need the sneakers to do them justice. Or you have plain Jane clothes and want a comfortable yet fashionable statement. The best of the Miami sneaker stores for men and women? Area Code 305 Sports in downtown. It features 1200 styles. Not just workout shoes for training and running, but also casually elegant Euro-style suede Pumas, a metallic number in different colors designed for Kim Kardashian, sport shoes for soccer and tennis, and print and even a turquoise Converse model for hipsters (the Converse and long flaired skirt look).  Also find New Era sports team and Oakley caps, sport sandals and colorful flip flops, Jennsport backpacks, and athletic wear for men including Adidas for 40% off.

Eye Popping Workout Clothes

 

Whenever I wear the workout clothes (which by the way, also work for going out for a casual lunch or doing errands) I got at new Brazilian shop Equilibrium Activewear, I get compliments.

Miami Fashion News – Part 1

 

 

Soft supple suede shirt from Insight on their instore classic car

 

A recent “recon” mission (as in reconnaissance to check out new shops, eateries, etc) to Brickell City Centre revealed some great new fashion destinations for men and women,  European shops that are beachheads in the USA. They’re not your usual global luxury brands. And don’t we love unique, especially when they’re not over the top pricey. The shops I mention are ones I liked (in fact, alas, I did some damage). Two are  Italian, and a third from Spain with their own brand and others from Europe as well. Read Full Post & Comments »

Fashionable Workout Clothes at Flying Lizard

Coconut Grove location

 

When a shop specializing in workout and athleisure clothes (day to evening wear) calls itself a “boutique”, it deserves a look. Many of the big brands in the field like Lululemon and Athleta, not to speak of Nike and Adidas, tend to be eminently unexciting. True, here in Miami we have some Brazilian and Colombian shop imports adding fashion excitement with colorful prints and styles. But there hasn’t been a shop with a well curated selection of brands from all over the world – fun, fashionable, comfortable and durable. Enter the scene Flying Lizard. The proof of its winning formula? Owner Jessica Lurie opened her first shop a year and a half ago in North Miami, quickly followed by Coconut Grove and now Boca Raton.  And she’ll give a 20% discount to you if you mention MiamiCurated sent you.
