From hippie chicks going au naturel to surgically enhanced locals, everyone's welcome to show off their moneymakers at the Standard's saltwater pool. When 8:30pm rolls around, grab your mojito and head indoors for hipster bingo (where, alas, tops are mandatory).

The Best European Sunbathing in Miami
One of the great things about Miami is its place as an established multicultural center for intellectual development—take, for example, the food, the people and, most important, the topless pool scenes. And not for any other reason than to make you aware, we bring you the five definitive opportunities for spending time around the half-naked female form.
Modeled on the daylong celebrations at Ibiza and St. Tropez, the Shore Club's weekly party is like the best of Miami nightlife all rolled into one afternoon. There's VIP bottle service, a live DJ, four party areas and plenty of topless beauties roaming around. Hit the sandbar for the best views (of whatever you're looking at).
On any given day at this 18th-floor rooftop oasis, you'll find waves of tempting eye candy, from well-endowed Russian heiresses sunning themselves to statuesque Swedish tourists lazily reading gossip magazines, all while avoiding those pesky tan lines. You can gain access by reserving a cabana for the day or just buying a drink.
South Beach From 5th to 15th
Topless tanning is permitted on all Miami beaches (finally the law working in your favor), but the epicenter of this loveliness is undoubtedly South Beach. Brazilian bikinis rule, with South American models bronzing themselves in little more than a sliver of fabric.
At Miami's only full-on nude beach, the pendulum swings both ways (speaking metaphorically), so be prepared to reveal your business if you wish to partake in the mass skinny-dipping. The vibe is nature-loving and nonjudgmental, with the occasional volleyball game and barbecue to spice up all that naked tanning. (Be careful around the grill.)
