Love the look of a suit, but can't stand the heat? Yigal Azrouël is here to lighten your layers.
With a predilection for body-con designs and an overall siren-meets-tough girl aesthete, Yigal Azrouël is a mainstay in the closets of Miami's most fashionable. In his recently debuted resort 2014 collection, the designer folds in elements of athleticism, tomboy-chic, and black-and-white minimalism. A pencil skirt with leather slat pockets is paired with a crop-top; a tennis ball-yellow dress rocks a zippered front and geometric cut-out neckline; and a black motorcycle jacket sports perforated black-and-white-panels. Our favorite look, however, is this black-and-white short-suit and bra-top—because where else can you get away with wearing a suit this sexy but in scorching hot Miami?

See Colombia's most talented young musicians on stage at the New World Center this Friday.
The Colombian Youth Philharmonic will make Miami history on Friday, July 26, becoming the first Latin American orchestra to perform at the New World Center. The concert will feature nearly 100 exceptionally talented young musicians between the ages of 16 and 24 from across Colombia, all clad in black ensembles and brightly colored sneakers.
This Friday's performance will also mark the official close of the New World Center's fourth season. Veteran conductor Alejandro Posada will lead the evening's musical journey, with four orchestral pieces by Igor Stravinsky, Cristóbal Halffter, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Ottorino Respighi.
Despite being founded just three years ago, the Colombian Youth Philharmonic has already garnered a tremendous amount of international exposure through Colombia's Promotion Plan Abroad. The kids, who will also pay a visit to mayor Tomas Regalado during their stay in Miami, come from various socio-economic backgrounds and have all auditioned amongst peers at the top of their musical game to earn a spot in the group. Tickets to the performance at the New World Center are available online with a handling fee of $6. 500 17th St., Miami Beach, 305-673-3331
