Holding Miami's Art Basel in December is truly a gift for us New Yorkers. It's painfully chilly up here and any excuse to travel south to sunny South Beach is A-OK in our book. 
Art's creativity continues to fascinate us and we're intrigued by the elements, pop culture and current events that inspire artists and designers. It's basically one long, eye-opening weekend, plus the ocean and warm winds certainly don't hurt.
Th culture of this city is lively and hypnotic.  Dive in.


But first! What to pack for Art Basel: 



Sunglasses are essential, especially those of the geometric variety:


An oversized and colorful silk scarf for potentially chilly nights:  




A sleek laptop case for your essential technology


A flapper inspired turban for a night out on the town. Looks best with a martini in hand:



An effortless floral clutch for running around:




A practical bag for your daily needs, plus, it looks fantastic at the beach:



Jewels that scream summer:
