Miami has become a city synonymous with fashion. Here, the streets are filled with designer boutiques and one-of-a-kind local shops. Mere steps away, on the white sandy beaches, you may spot jet setting designers and celebrity stylists alike soaking up the sun alongside some of this city’s best-dressed travelers.
With a wash of new summer styles upon us, we decided to catch up with buyer and curator Amanda Gutierrez for her fashion insight – including what to wear this season and what to shop for once you arrive at Acqualina Resort & Spa.
Once a home stylist, Amanda has catered to high-profile clients from New York to Miami to Beverly Hills and now works with luxury hotel boutiques including the recently opened space within Acqualina Spa by ESPA. With a keen eye and an innate appreciation for luxury, she identifies with lasting clothing and accessories rather than styles that are only on-trend for a single season. “I buy beautiful, classical items that you are going to be able to wear for many years,” she says. “It’s going to look trendy now, and it’s going to look trendy in ten years.”
For this summer in Miami, Amanda recommends white lace dresses or cover-ups – like those of Anjuna, one of her favorite designers – paired with floral bikinis. “White is always perfect for any beach around the world,” she says. “[It’s] so elegant and appropriate everywhere you go.”
