Bring your fashion A-game wherever you go this summer. Have fun in the sun with these resort looks that are more than just swimsuits.
Beach season is one of the reasons why people are coming about from their caves. It’s a perfect time to get some sun and dress up any way we like. So, whether you’re headed to a tropical escape or a boutique hotel for a break, it’s best to prepare more than just swimsuits. Sure, swimsuits are summer staples, but there’s more to resort wear that will keep you in style all summer long.
1. Cut-Out Dresses
There are more ways than one to off your fresh tan. One of the best ways is by putting on a cut-out dress. Pick something that will compliment your skin color to highlight your sun-kissed skin. They’re great not only for lounging but also for a friends’ night out.
Our Picks: The Kimee Dress is a sophisticated choice for a sultry dress. Available in both Orange Spice and White, this dress features a bandeau style with cutouts in the ab area. Moreover, the asymmetrical side knot gives it an extra flair.
You can also opt for the Aurea Dress with its flattering halter neckline and self-tying knot at the back. This dress features strategically placed cut-outs in the waist area. The low back and side slits leave more room for your skin to breathe this beach season.
Everybody needs a dress that can pull of more than one look. The Faiza Dress does just that as it transforms into two different looks. You can wear it open and plunging or crossing at the front with cutouts in the cleavage area. This and a low back and thin straps call for an elegant dress for soirees and date nights.
2. Comfy Coordinates
You can never go wrong with coordinates. They go a long way, especially during the hot season. We suggest separates made from lightweight materials such as linen or rayon. You can wear them by the pool or while just lounging at home.
Our Picks: Put on the Célia Top and Shorts and stay relaxed wherever you go. The top features a relaxed-cut collar and deep V-neck for a laid-back look. Meanwhile, the shorts have pleats at the front and a waistband secured with three fabric-covered buttons. Not to mention, you get functional pockets for your everyday essentials.
The Audrey Top and Shorts are made from lightweight rayon fabric. This, plus the set’s bright rust hue, makes it perfect for basking in the summer heat. Show off that décolletage with the top’s deep placket and match it with the pleated shorts.
Good coordinates come in unique designs, just like the Lea Top and Pants. The top has an unconventional cropped shape with a triangle cut-out in the middle. Meanwhile, the pants have a perfectly tailored wide-leg silhouette and a high waist.
3. Dreamy Dresses
Dresses are perfect as they flow along with the summer winds. Pick a dress that is straight out of a romantic movie. Choose one with an ultra-feminine flow or a refined structure. Better yet, pick one that’s straight out of a dream.
Our Picks: The Amour Dress gives off a boho-chic look you’re aiming for this season. Be it in Rose or Ivory, this dress features tiered skirting and ultra feminine ruffles in the hemline. It also has thin straps that crisscross at the back and dainty ruffles in the neckline. With its length and drop waist style, you’ll be living out a dream with this one.
Picture this: you, the summer sun, and the French Riviera. Sounds perfect? So does the Perle Midi Dress. This demure dress will turn heads with its hand-pleated details and tiered skirting. With its cinched waist and midi length, you’ll feel like the lead in your romantic movie. Get this dress in White or Lemon.
Finally, the Luma Dress feels and moves like a fantasy. This flowy maxi dress has a square neckline and adjustable straps. But the highlight is its tasteful low back and tiered skirting with a hint of pleats. Perfect from sunrise to sunset, it’s truly a versatile and timeless piece.
4. Daily Shortsuits
We get it. There are times when you just want to pick up an item in your closet and go. However, that doesn’t mean you should look any less presentable. A one-piece will definitely save your day. If you’re looking for ways to wear less on your lazy days, we present Shortsuits.
Our Picks: Laze around all day with the Ines Shortsuit. This number features the Balinese handmade embroidery called Kerawangin in its bodice and the back area. It also has a criss-cross open back and functional pockets for little treats and trinkets. Wear it in Black or Charcoal for easier days ahead.
Looking for the right outfit to wear to brunch? The Alinda Jumpsuit takes care of that with its beautiful floral pattern. It gives rompers a new meaning with a tailored silhouette. This versatile piece has a scoop neckline that’s a perfect canvas for a choker.
5. Light as Bamboo
Bamboo comes in different forms. Aside from the tall grasses that easily flow with the breeze, they now also come in fabric. Our collection features outfits made from bamboo crinkle for an airy feel that’s perfect from the city to the coast.
Our Picks: The Long Sleeve Bamboo Crop and Side Slit Bamboo Skirt will feel luxurious against your skin. For the top, you get a plunging neckline and voluminous sleeves. Meanwhile, the skirt is classy in a high waist with a fixed band, and a sexy side slit.
From wedding ceremonies to dressy cocktail evenings, you’ll never be out of style with the Ivory Bamboo Maxi. It has a deep V neckline and a gathered waist to render a flattering shape. Plus, it features an open criss-cross back and flowy skirt to go along with the summer breeze.
You can forget other staycation outfits when you have the Bamboo Button Down Maxi. This beautiful dress is light and cool even with its long sleeves. The elegant maxi length paired with the gathered waist definitely makes it great for walks at the shore or evening engagements.
Lastly, the Bamboo Wide Leg Jumpsuit is ultra-feminine with its waist-low neckline and billowy sleeves. You can wear it for sundown drinks at a resort or a dressy dinner at a boutique hotel. It comes with a waist tie to render shape, an open back, as well as a wide-legged silhouette.
Picking the right outfit for your next resort getaway all falls down to one thing: chic yet simple. Your arsenal shouldn’t only be limited to only the usual staples like swimsuits and cover-ups. There’s more to explore not only in the ocean but also in the way you build your wardrobe.
