What to Wear to 6 Art Basel Events

November 25, 2014 | by Carla Torres

Ready, set...Basel. But before you get your art on, you’ll need to decide what to wear. Here, we've scoped out some hot items that will go perfect with this week's agenda. 

Short Set for CONCEPT

Two-piece matching T-shirt and shorts set.

Daze Set, Style Mafia ($100). 2324 N.W. Fifth Ave., 786-801-0319

In this smoke-inspired ensemble, you'll blend right in with the modern works at CONCEPT, the inaugural art fair aboard the docked Seafair mega yacht. While you will look chic, you won't be too overdressed as you board the ship perched downtown beside Bayfront Park. CONCEPT, 100 Chopin Plaza, Miami

Metal Choker for Design Miami

Statement choker.

Necklace Type II, Soli ($214). MVM, 175 23rd St., 305-573-4885

Design Miami is all about the newest objets d’art, so why not wear one around your neck? This silver-and-bronze statement choker will dress up the simplest of outfits, and the adjustable length makes it work with any neckline. It’s the ultimate Basel accessory—as long as you don’t mind all eyes on you.

Chain-Link Trousers for the After-Party

Black pants with chain-links down the legs.

Chain Link Trousers, Undercover ($1,610). Alchemist, 1109 Lincoln Road, 305-531-4653

Love all-black everything? We've found your sartorial soul mate in these chain-link trousers. Both comfortable and versatile, they'll take your nighttime Basel look to the next level. Sport them to any after-party—specifically, the Gale's Disaronno Terrace (where you can see Jeremy Penn's new series, "The Evolution and the Ego," and hear DJ Christa Marie) or one of Solange’s six performances at SELECTGale Hotel, 1690 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; SELECT, 7200-7300 Collins Ave., Miami Beach

Boy Chanel Bag to Art Basel

Green Chanel handbag.

Large Boy Flap Bag, Chanel ($4,600). Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., 305-868-0550

Your bag speaks 1,000 words, especially when it’s the latest from Chanel—the boy Chanel flap bag—and in a vibrant shade representative of Miami's subtropical climate. Pack your essentials inside and head to the main attraction: Art Basel Miami Beach, the art fair that started it all.

Rockstud Pumps to Art Miami

Black rockstud pumps.

Rockstud Pumps, Valentino Garavani ($1,375). The Webster, 1220 Collins Ave., 305-674-7899

What’s more fitting for a star-studded affair than studded Valentino pumps? Quite possibly, nothing. Slip them on for art- and celeb-browsing at Art Miami, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this Art Basel.

Hoop Earrings for Pop-Up Shopping

Cone charm mini hoop earrings.

Cone Charm Hoop Earrings, Eddie Borgo ($150). ShopBAZAAR at Soho Beach House, 4385 Collins Ave., 786-507-7900
