Four of the biggest trends in resort wear right now
With the booming travel industry and exotic vacation destinations back on our radars, you might have booked a summer beach vacation, whether in Goa, the Maldives or southern France. Then comes the fun but sometimes daunting task of packing the perfect beach wardrobe. You want to look cool and chic while being comfortable and confident. Here are four trends to embrace this summer and make your resort more chic.
Layering isn’t just for winter and may be your best bet when spending the day at the beach. Start with your favorite swimsuit, adding light and airy separates to create multiple looks with minimal effort. My favorite combination is pairing crochet lace pants with an oversized cotton shirt. Use the shirt as a cover up after your dip in the ocean and slick your hair back into a tight bun to go with your bikini and the pants for sunset cocktails after sunbathing all day. Three looks in one outfit equals a ton of Instagram-worthy photos.
It feels like the pandemic is slowly regressing (we hope) and life is getting back to normal. After dreaming of summer vacations for two years, it’s time to go bold with color and embrace the zest and endless joie de vivre we all have. If lockdown was all about neutral loungewear, let this summer be all about bright colors and bold prints. Go for it by mixing and even contrasting Pantone shades. I’m pretty neon right now, because nothing screams we’re back more than the electrifying, dazzling shades of this fun summer trend. Also, don’t limit your neon pieces to daytime — it works just as well at night, especially when paired with gold or silver accessories.
Nothing makes a better entrance than a dramatic maxi blowing in the wind. From Grecian-inspired chiffon dresses to silky waist-cinching wrap dresses, this is that one-of-a-kind piece that takes minimal effort and creates maximum impact. I love choosing a dress with lots of flow and movement, pairing it with gold flats or ultra high plexi heels and basking in the inevitable goddess vibes. From pristine white to jewel tones, choose your favorite color and let your tan shine.
There’s a reason why separates still dominate fashion shows and street styling – everyone loves a chic outfit that doesn’t require any styling prowess. Especially on vacation where every minute saved thinking about what to wear is an extra minute spent sunbathing or sipping punchy cocktails. Next is the matching set and with so many options there is a style to suit every personality and body type. From tops and jackets paired with shorts, skirts and pants, the choice is endless. My favorite go-to is a chic kimono jacket with slim fit pants. This combo can be glam with heels and jewelry for a chic dinner date or dressed up with a bikini and gladiator sandals for a boho-chic beach vibe. The matching co-ord trend is ever-evolving and here to stay.
If your next vacation is too far away to get you excited, change up these summer trends for the city because there’s no reason not to dress like you’re on vacation, even when you’re not. It will help you beat the heat and have fun while doing mundane daily chores. Mix crochet with your denim or add a shiny bob to add a pop of color. I say it’s never a bad idea to be in a vacation mood and make some fun clothing choices while you’re at it.
