    Miami Swim Week is an excuse for us Floridians to let loose, but there’s something we love even more than the party — and that’s getting the first glimpse at bright, patterned resort gear. So, you can't really blame us for wanting to get our paws on Mara Hoffman’s cult-creating tops and bottoms, with their witchy and South American inspirations.

    For the past 12 years, Hoffman has grown her line in New York, but we swear she designs just for us. Her collections consist of swimwear, ready-to-wear, accessories, and shoes — plus, her original silk prints are busy, graphic, and simply out of control. This coming year’s resortwear collection includes geometric and animal-print patterns, kaleidoscope-print mini, midi, and maxi dresses, tulip hems, and some triangle-shaped cutouts. Her line is perfect for any occasion, whether you’re spending the winter months on a vacay or a stay-cay in the city.
