It’s that time of year where Spring Break opens the doors to warmer weather, vacation planning, and the countdown to summer.  New Yorkers are at the edge of their seats, awaiting the end of that cold, frosty funk. What better way to do so than daydream of Miami?

Miami has been called the capital of electronic dance music, Latin American culture, and late-night fun.  While it’s home to some of the country’s most desired beaches, shopping, life night, and vibrant culture, it’s only natural that Miami swimwear would honor the same ~vibes~.

We put together a list of our Top 5 favorite Miami women’s swimwear designers to add to your shopping cart, and the best hot spots in Miami to wear them to.

Since 1996, this Miami staple has designed for every type of woman.  Eberjey comes from the Nigerian parable Ebburzhai, meaning the closeness, the goodness, and the all encompassing joy.  What started off as a beloved lingerie brand (you can still buy lingerie and loungewear), Eberjey opened their doors to swimwear, including anything from gingham bikinis, to one-shouldered one pieces, to airy cover ups.  Check out their styles here!      

Mimicking the colors and textures of the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, TAJ by Sabrina Cippa boasts one of the most picturesque collections of resort wear and cover ups.  With a flagship store on Miami Beach, TAJ has expanded to St. Barts, London, Tokyo, and many more luxuries destinations.  Sometimes it’s hard to find the right cover up that’s both beautiful and practical, so look no further.

Where to Wear It:

Delano Beach Club is the perfect mix of luxury and relaxation.  Secluded on South Beach, Delano is a great spot for both locals and visitors to rewind poolside or under private cabanas.  From sunrise to sunset, this is one of the best spots in Miami to flaunt your dbrie bikini.

Step away from the crowds to Crandon Park, located on Key Biscayne in Miami.  Known for its shallow, crystal clear waters, you can rent a cabana, watch the surfers and volleyball players, play tennis, or simply take in the views.  This is a great beach destination if you’re looking to take a break from the heart of Miami Beach.

Nikki Beach Miami is where it’s at!  Flaunt your TAJ look at this quintessential South Beach spot that’s been a mainstay since 1998.  Hungry? Nikki Beach boasts a menu of creative salads, sushi, and seafood entrees.  You can sip on a cool cocktail under the palms or enjoy a Sundown social or dance if you’re looking for more activity.

Is there really any other classic destination than Miami’s South Beach? That’s right, all of it! Known for its pristine beaches, glamorous nightlife, and central location, this hot beach destination is also right off of Ocean Drive, one of Miami’s highly acclaimed shopping streets. 

Inspired by Luli Fama’s Latin roots? Go to Bahia, a fine dining experience at The Four Seasons Hotel Miami.  Just steps away from the beat, sit poolside and feast on Mexican, Latin American and Caribbean delicacies.  On a weekend retreat? Enjoy their happy hour in a lounge chair from 4-6pm.
