Hitting the resort this summer or are you already planning a trip in the winter for a much needed break from the cold? Need a wardrobe update for keeping up with the stylish lovelies who stroll through the resort grounds and lounge by the pool? We’re here to help you make your summer (or winter!) vacation resort-style fabulous. For both women and men (and even an option thrown in for little miss, just for fun) we’ve rounded up some of the most unique, breathtaking, and high quality resort wear that’s offered today. From hoodies to dinner dresses and cover-ups galore, there’s something here that will suit every adult’s personal style, making your time spent at the resort not only fun, but fashion-forward.
The folks at Echo Design have been creating luxurious products for the last 90 years, including some of the most gorgeous resort wear that we’ve laid our eyes on. Their belief in quality craftsmanship, inspired design, and the transformative power of beauty never comes more alive than when selecting apparel comparative to the natural beauty of the ocean.
The stunning reef print that makes up the Reef T-shirt Tunic is not only gorgeous, but gives an accurate representation of the mysterious beauty that is underseas. Bring some of that beauty to your resort wardrobe with this soft, breathable, absorbent, and quick-drying tunic top, that works perfectly as a cover-up or an all-day outfit addition to a great pair of white shorts.
A Silky Shirt Dress is an essential for your resort wear wardrobe. For use as a cover-up or a flowing top with a pair of stunning capris, there is nothing more feminine and sexy than having sun and silk touch your skin. This breathable, quick-drying, half-button placket shirt dress is not only beautiful, but the practicality and versatility of the design will make this your go-to pick for the day.
Again, Echo Design doesn’t leave you with a one-hit wonder; lots of their resort wear options double as a chic cover-up and an everyday wear piece, such as this Abstract Zebra Maxi Halter Dress. The bamboo/spandex blend fabric makes this dress super soft and stretchy, and gives you the option of cinching the waistline or wearing it long and loose.
Flowing, breezy dresses just scream resort wear as they mimic the soft ocean breeze and allow you to stay cool amidst the warm salty air. The Cold Shoulder Caftan is flowing in all the right places and gives you a flattering silhouette no matter your body shape or size, complete with a trendy cut-out shoulder detail. The spandex/bamboo fabric blend makes you feel as though you’re wearing a cloud, and really, what better feeling is that when your toes are in the sand?
