Swap out your sweaters for sarongs, because the resort collections are here! In the depths of winter, it’s nice to remember that sunshine is only a quick flight away. And while I’m personally not jetting off somewhere fabulous this break, there are plenty of snowbirds out there who are! Whether you’re doing New Years on an island, or just heading down to Florida for the winter, we found the best of the best when it comes to resort.
If you’re hitting the beach, you’re going to need a cover-up that does double duty. It can go from your lounger to happy hour in one fell swoop! Anaak’s white smocked cotton dress is beachy but in a Nancy Meyers way, as is this Bird & Knoll blue-and-white striped tiered maxi dress. A white halterneck Ralph Lauren swimsuit or this long sleeve white crochet tunic for a perfect timeless beach look.
Maybe you’re leaning in to a more tropical vibe. You’re ready for bright colors and fun patterns! After all, you’re finally back in the sun. Boteh’s artisanal block print dresses come in gorgeously mix-matched floral and paisley motifs. A.L.C’s cult-favorite Rhodes sundress comes in the perfect tangerine shade, just in time for citrus season. Agua Bendita’s half-and-half tunic is vintage Hollywood glamour on vacation in Mexico. I love the statement of a brightly colored one piece, like this sky blue Bond-Eye suit or this J.Crew cobalt blue ribbed one piece with a fun belt.
On the dressier side of things, Frances Valentine has some stunning dresses you can just throw on and go. This Aster Caftan is easy and breezy, decorated with pretty flowers. The cream-colored Capri tunic has fun dashes of texture and color with their rainbow bits of fringe.
