If you are not really a winter person, there is nothing better than having the opportunity to set off to someplace warmer. Saying goodbye to the wind, snow, and below-freezing temperatures is a no-brainer in my book. It seems many others seem to be on the same page, which makes traveling during this time of the year even more in-demand. To accompany this holiday state of mind comes an onslaught of newly sought-after resortwear from all of your favorite brands and designers. These vacation-ready pieces are just what the doctor ordered to cure your seasonal depression. From bold, tropical prints to bright colors, I compiled the best resortwear pieces to pack for your upcoming vacation. The best part? Everything listed is under $300.
10 Resortwear Pieces to Pack for Vacation
A.L.C. Anita Halter Top
This little silk halter top practically screams “it’s vacation time”. For fans of minimal dressing, this top is perfect to pack for your next getaway.
Essentiel Antwerp Dolly Button-Front Shirt
Your favorite button up but make it tropical. This is exactly how I would describe this top from Essentiel Antwerp.
Agolde Denim Shorts
A durable pair of denim shorts go along way on vacation. Wear them to the pool to dinner and beyond. These bottoms are perfect for almost any situation.
Rails Cotton Gauze Pants
If you find yourself in a tropical climate, it behooves you to wear light layers. When it comes to staying cool, you can do no better than fabrications such as cotton gauze. These pants look chic but most importantly, will be comfortable even in the humidity.
Cult Gaia Gigi Crochet Dress
One of the biggest resortwear trends of 2023 is crochet. This organic, homemade aesthetic is a match made in heaven for any beach getaway. This body-hugging crochet dress from Cult Gaia is the ideal piece to wear to dinner whilst on vacation.
Baobab Mia Coverup
If you are headed anywhere with a pool or a beach, a coverup is just as essential as the bathing suit itself. And this one truly is a bang for your buck. Although labeled a coverup, it can just as easily double as a cute mini dress.
Farm Rio Sarong Coverup
As another option, this Farm Rio sarong is the perfect pop of color to your poolside look. Plus, it even comes with a matching one-piece if you want a fully coordinated outfit.
Vince Evie Pool Flatform Sandals
As much as I love to pack a pair of daring heels for my vacation, I almost always end up wearing a simple pair of slides for the majority of the trip. These Vince flatforms are not only chic, but they can be matched with just about any look you might pack.
Cult Gaia Ark Cutout Bag
Cult Gaia never fails to miss with their accessories. This Ark Cutout bag is unique and quite frankly, a conversation starting piece. The use of natural wood matches any tropical setting well, but the gold hardware adds a glam aesthetic I cannot get enough of.
Lexxola Jordy Square Sunglasses
No vacation is complete without a pair of sunglasses in tow and these ones immediately caught my eye (no pun intended). Everything from the square silhouette to the tinted lenses scream trend savvy.
