We blinked and 2017 flew by; now it’s 2018 and resort season is here once again. As you plan your first vacations of the new year, you might be looking forward to the resort wardrobe refresh that comes with it. Vacation style means light, breezy and colorful by day and classy with an air of romance and whimsy by night. Here are all your vacation must haves for the resort season this year:
The All White Dress
Just like the LBD (little black dress) is a year round must-have, so is the all white dress. The all white dress is a staple in your closet, especially around the winter to springtime transition. Whether you’re going on a cruise, lounging at an all inclusive hotel somewhere warm and tropical or if you’re going somewhere else exotic and full of sunshine, all white is mandatory. Short white dresses in the bodycon silhouette, whether short or long sleeved, are always a fresh, bright look for women and girls of any age. White lace dresses are a timeless, classic look that keep you looking delicate and feminine. It’s a new year and a clean slate, rock white to represent a new beginning.
Anything that’s light and breezy is a must for vacation wear if you’re headed to a warm, sunny destination. Pack away your sweaters, heavy outerwear and dark colors to make way for lighter, brighter colors and prints. Swap those dark burgundies and hunter greens for a pink floral dress, a fresh white ensemble or go bold with a neon yellow dress - all perfect colors for a sunny brunch date in the caribbean or a stroll along the beach in the polynesian islands. Pack the Winter away in the closet and bring color back into your wardrobe!
Comfortable, Airy Dresses
Besides great colors, resortwear is also about comfort and versatility. It’s not really a vacation if you’re not feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, is it? So your 2018 vacation fashion picks need to look great (duh) and make you feel great! And if one dress can double up to take you from day to night activities, you get extra points. Cute cotton sundresses are the perfect pick, thanks to the airy, breathable fabric they’re made of. Looking for some picture perfect moments to post on insta or facebook to make everyone in the cold weather jealous? Swing chiffon dresses tend to catch light breezes like nothing else - so your sunglasses, hair in the wind look is complete with a dress that dances in the breeze beautifully.
Another great choice for comfy yet glam are colorful maxi dresses. A beautifully printed or even a solid colored maxi dress can easily take you from exploring a museum or drinks with the girls to early evening dining or even a festive night out.
Mommy and me Cruise Outfits
Spending quality bonding time with family is a great way to recharge and enter the new year with the right energy. Set sail on your cruise with a memorable look for your whole family. It’s the perfect bonding opportunity you will look back on for years to come.
Matching mommy and me dresses and trendy beachwear will make for the most memorable moments aboard that family cruise and the most adorable photos opportunities. Just choosing the right cruise clothing for mommy and daughter before your trip will be a bonding experience on its own. Breezy, light dresses are the name of the game on cruises - half the fun of going on cruises is that feminine nautical style you and your little one get to rock!
