Beach-inspired fashion and decor are trending right now. Between coastal grandmother and coastal cowgirl, people are channeling their inner seaside vibes left and right. But what if the beachy aesthetic you're looking to embody is a little less nautical and a little more fun in the sun? Let us introduce you to Miamicore.


The term has just started making its way across TikTok, but we feel rather confident that it's here to stay. Think The Golden Girls, your chic and kind of quirky grandmother's Florida home, a mixture of pastels and bold tones with coastal accents that are a bit campy and fun — essentially, postmodern Miami decor. While Coastal Grandmother closely channels Diane Keaton in ‌Something's Gotta Give‌, Miamicore is more like your wacky retired aunt.
