the nicer night clubs may not allow flip flops. or jeans. many places are casual and allow it , but i would check ahead of time. the women get dressed up in their shortest dresses and highest heels, as anything goes in miami. the guys usually wear dress shirts and pants with nice shoes.
it depends where you go.
there is definately a very sexy vibe there in terms of clothing for clubs!
Its probably best not to wear flip flops to clubs, as you will most likely either find yourself standing outside or get stepped on by some drunk. They are fine for bars, lounges though.
If you want to actually get into the clubs, don’t wear flip flops.
The dress code in LA is very different than Miami. People in Miami go over the top with everything, especially their clothes ;-)
I would highly recommend against "flip flops" unless you will just be at some dive bar or lounge. Most clubs you will find the clientel wearing (for men) shoes (not necessarily sneakers), stylish jeans/pants and a collared shirt, possibly a jacket... whereas ladies will be seen in everything from jeans to dresses. I agree with the previous postings that South Beach is a very "dressy" place, for the most part.
Find a couple of clubs/bars you want to go to and call ahead to find out the dress code specifically for those places. You do not want to find yourself in a situation where you cannot get into somewhere due to what you are (or are not) wearing.
