What is Resort Wear?

Picture this: crystal waters, swaying palms, white sand beaches. In a sunny state of mind yet? Whether you live in year-round sunshine or are looking to escape the cold for a picture-perfect destination, resort wear covers all the pieces you need for tropical climates, including:
Breezy maxi dresses
Bold bikinis and one-pieces
Standout cover-ups for après swim adventures
You’ll be all set to jet set with warm-weather vacation wear in your getaway bag. Think floaty fabrics and statement swimwear–quintessential pieces to fit the resort dress code. From days spent soaking up rays to sunset walks along the shoreline, resort wear ensures you’ll look the part for all of it.

Top Resort Wear Vacation Looks

Once the trip’s booked, the next step is to pack your getaway bag. The good news is there’s no one-size-fits-all guide for how to style resort wear, allowing you to make each piece totally your own. The bad news (or is it more good news?): with styles this eye-catching, overpacking is inevitable.
At the top of our resort style must-have list are bright colors. Think vibrant shades like hot pink and electric lime, or even our new metallic rainbow swimwear! With these punchy pieces packed for your escape, you’ll be the brightest on the shoreline.
By the ocean, by the pool–doesn’t matter, textured swimwear is here to make a splash. Right now, we’re really feeling our Honeycomb fabric. It’s ultra-stretchy and snug, flexing to fit and flatter your curves. Once you feel how soft it is, you won’t be able to stop buzzing about it!

Make Every Day Feel Like a Getaway

Resort wear doesn’t have to be saved just for vacay. Hot tip: lean into your resort style even after your return flight to make your everyday feel like a little piece of paradise.
Spending time at a resort feels like luxury, and we may have—no, we definitely did—unlock the secret to bringing that indulgent feeling home: our new EffortLuxe fabric that makes you look like a million bucks without any fuss. It has a silky feel, subtle sheen and gorgeous drape with a hint of stretch to make it comfortable for everyday wear. Plus, it doesn’t wrinkle, so it travels well and keeps up with your busy schedule.
Easy-breezy fabrics are one of those resort wear trends you’ll be wearing well past the getaway. Our AirLight Linen is one of them. It feels like a cool breeze on a warm day and is ultra-breathable, getting softer the more you wear it. Good thing, because you’ll be reaching for it on repeat during warmer weather.

Après Swim: Must-Have Cover-Ups

To the beach, at the beach and beyond the beach: there’s nowhere a statement cover-up won’t take you! Color us obsessed with crochet layering pieces that conceal just enough while still showing a peek of the super-cute suit you’re wearing underneath.
We’re also totally here for a pareo, possibly the most versatile cover-up you’ll ever come across. Is it a skirt? Is it a dress? Is it a sarong? Yes, yes and yes! Pack one pareo cover-up in your bag and you’ve got a different look for each beach day (hello, extra suitcase space)! This cover-up is the ultimate when it comes to how to style resort wear your own way.

Take Your Swimsuit Beyond the Beach

More sunshine, less time spent in your hotel room. Having to make fewer outfit changes throughout the day is a win in our book, and guess what? You can wear your cover-up and your swimwear off the sand! The trick to mastering how to wear resort casual is having a standout layer to toss over your perfect-fitting suit.
Grab lunch beachside in denim cutoffs and a button-down top thrown over your suit. It’s as put-together as any warm-weather outfit with an added bonus—you can get right back to the beach! We also love playful kimono-style cover-ups, sporty long-sleeve one-pieces paired with shorts for beach time and playtime…really, anything goes when it comes to wearing your swimsuit around the resort.

How to Style Resort Wear

Treat yourself to a new outfit (or two, or three) to throw in your getaway bag. And don’t forget the accessories! A pair of bedazzled sandals that go from poolside hangs to an evening out are essential, along with statement jewelry so you can elevate your look for dinner.
