Tropical prints, luxe silhouettes… easy dresses that beg for the sun to come out. That’s what I’m craving as the NYC winter continues to cascade down in the form of sleet and snow. Luckily, Mara Hoffman‘s newest arrivals are doing their part to lift my spirits with all of the above.

She imagines every scenario in which a girl wants to look amazing, from wandering the coast to lounging by the pool. Is it any wonder I’m in love? Here are five of my favorites from her newest resort collection.


1. Tank Dress

2. Triangle Top Cutout Maxi Dress

3. Jaquard Cropped Top

4. Linen Cropped Top

5. Poncho Sweater
