Though our ladies rock Brazilian bikinis year round (thanks, ladies!), Swim Week takes things even further, adding on yet more ladies, yet skimpier bikinis, and yes: way, way more booze.
Dive In: Splashion Kick Off Party
Start the party early with this unofficial kickoff bash as Jason Derulo performs blazing live tracks, including his latest, "The Other Side." Grab a Beck's Sapphire at the bar and watch Miami Dolphin cheerleaders strut their assets on the runway before a trippy live digital sketch show.
Tue Jul 16 8p. Mansion Nightclub, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach (305-695-8411). RSVP here.
Outback Outfit: Suboo After Party
Check out this Australian swimwear line with those barely-there bikinis we know and love, then head over to this retro tropical getaway to partake in the afterparty. Opt for a cabana by the pool as women splash you with champagne and electro progressive beats by Damaged Goods hit your eardrums for one killer evening.
Fri Jul 19 10p. Hyde Beach at SLS Hotel South Beach, 1701 Collins Ave., Miami Beach (305-674-1701). Free.
Jungle Book: Minimale Animale Show
Featuring bikinis from this year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition (you know, the one with Kate Upton), this is the show to beat. With unique geometric patterns, ultra-low cuts, and mesh suits with conveniently placed palm trees and squares, we'll warn you now: not much will be left to your imagination.
Mon Jul 22 9p. Oasis Tent at the Raleigh, 1775 Collins Ave., Miami Beach (305-534-6300). Free.
