Spring is almost here. Whether the weather is warming up in your neck of the woods, or you’re planning a pool-side getaway, you should be dipping your toes in this season’s seriously stylish resort wear trends.
From florals and flares to buckles and bombers, these complementary pieces are making a splash on the runway and landing the likes in your Instagram feed. Everything you need to pack and plan the perfect vacation is here at Mall of America®.
Look 1: Enjoy The Ride
When planning any trip, comfort is key. The first stop on my quest to arrange a versatile vacation wardrobe is Tory Sport. With new patterns seasonally popping up on the shop shelves, one style remains the same: the track suit. This lightweight number will get you from point A to point B and will leave you looking and feeling great. I layered this look over the “vivacious floral” high-neck bikini top for a fun, sportier look.
Also, the signature Tory Sport triangle satchel makes the perfect jet-setting companion. Once on land, swap your carry-on essentials for a towel and hit the pool.
Look 2: Exercise Your Style
Bold patterns and floral motifs made a big impact on the 2017 resort wear radar of high-end designers like Marc Jacobs, Alice + Olivia and more. Make your way into town or catch a workout class in these tropical bottoms by Tory Sport. These leggings are literally the most comfortable pair I’ve ever stepped into. With an ultra-lightweight and barely-there feel, they’ll slip easily into your suitcase. You can also sport them with the matching crop top pictured above.
Look 3: Let’s Brunch
BCBGMAXAZARIA boasts one of spring’s most popular patterns: stripes. This elegant yet simple dress is the perfect piece to wear out to brunch, lunch or a day out on the town while on vacation. You can also find it at Nordstrom.
Look 4: Add Some Flare to Your Resort Wear
I can’t get enough of this ’70s comeback trend. Bell sleeves will add a little flare to any outfit. Spot this look in resort collections by Roberto Cavalli, Rachel Zoe and Fendi, to name a few. I styled this top with a pair of slimming white pants from BCBGMAXAZRIA. What says “the Hamptons” or “Beverly Hills” better than an all-white ensemble? (I’m looking at all of my Kyle Richards fans out there.)
Look 5: Sport Your Swimwear
Swim & Sport’s new body glove collection is amazing. Each suit is crafted to hug your curves perfectly. If you’re planning to step onto a paddle board or try your hand at surfing, this is the suit for you.
Look 6: Seal Your Vacation with a Kiss
One trio of colors you’ll spot making a mark on this season’s resort wear palette: red, white and blue. I fell in love with this graphic one piece from Tory Sport. Its sleek fit and feminine design will make you feel both stylish and confident. Bonus: the quick drying fabric also includes UPF 50 sun protection.
