The Faces and Styles of Urban Beach Weekend

June 02, 2010 By Christy in Miami: Travel NewsMiami: Things to Do  | 13 Comments

Urban Beach Weekend brings top name performers to Miami like P. Diddy, who rocked Mansion and Chris Brown who drew a huge crowd at Karma.  Hip hop fans from all over flock to South Beach for a weekend of sun and clubbing.  On Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive stores and restaurants change their usual playlist to hip hop to attract shoppers and dinners.  And for just one weekend, clubs let their usual house-spinning DJ’s have a few days off. 

Daytime Attire

Ladies rocked sexy, one-piece cutout swimsuits and bikinis with plenty of bling.  While some strut their stuff down the street in next to nothing, others opt for fashionable, sheer mesh and patterned cover-ups. Gladiator sandals, straw hats, and jean shorts complete the beachy look.  Some girls went for a more casual look in floral and denim sundresses with tribal wooden jewelry and boho style leather belts.

Nighttime Fashion

In the evening, sizzling dresses paired with notice-me heels dominated the scene in typical Miami style. Mixed in were a few playful rompers and one very sexy and stylish ensemble- a black nylon leotard with matching patterned fishnet tights. Trends for men included character T-shirts and special edition Ralph Lauren polos.

Nice post, Christy. The people in your pictures look great.

As Doug menetioned, it’s refreshing to see a unique view of the weekend.

Earlier today, I spoke with a friend who works at Finnigan’s on Ocean Drive. He told me he made great money, this weekend, and everyone he served was super-cool.

Thank you for showing us the vacation-side of Urban Beach week.

Everyone loves to go on vacation and has the right to go wherever they choose.

Cool pics. I’m glad you went out to see what all the hype was with your own eyes rather than depend on others who have never actually experienced the weekend.

Thanks everyone! I wanted to show that media coverage of UBW can be something other than violence and arrest statistics. The UBW visitors are just like any other group and convention that come to town, and they deserve to be treated the same.

Definitely glad to see someone who wasn’t afraid to check out Memorial Day Weekend on Miami Beach.  It’s refreshing compared to all the negative jabs that get thrown around pertaining to this event. 

If you go to any event looking for trouble, you’ll find it.  If you’re there to have fun, you’ll find that as well.

Well.  The second guy is flashing the “L” for “Loser” hand sign and guys #3 & 4 look like they want you to…well…they’re pointing at it.

Remember when we jumped in those kid’s car? LOL. Anyway, great article and interesting pictures. They all looked like celebrities. City kids taking a break- which is cool. Keep up the writing and hopefully you could write in the UK!

LOL! Love the guy with Elmo shirt on. Most of these other folks pictured seem to take themselves a bit too seriously, but nothing says “awesome” like a ginormous Elmo t-shirt with matching-colored hat! hahaha.

Although, it is a bit difficult to beat a “Bling-Bling” Pink Panther… wink
