With it’s attention-grabbing hues and indulgent staples, fashion’s debut of 2021’s Resort served us the optimistic energy we were all lacking. Now, with hopeful anticipation of jet-setting and island hopping, you can get your hands on these straight off the runway, designer collections for the chicest summer looks we can’t get enough of. This summer’s trends are premeditated so Editorialist scored a tight edit of the true must-own seasonal styles for those who want to get ahead of the curve.

Carte Blanche

Whether exploring a tropical resort or making the most of a sunny day in the city, there’s always a need for the perfect casual-chic ensemble for a day that’s open with possibility. 

Thanks to cottagecore fashion, the classic praire dress is deeply on trend and elevating the minimalist garment is more exciting than it seems. With its voluminous sleeves and billowing silhouette, Zimmerman’s crisp linen midi dress is the ultimate archetypal style. There are myriad ways to upstyle this ethereal piece but add a romantic Parisian element with some classically feminine accessories, like a cat eye frame and a vintage Bulgari wrap watch. 

Female figures and Bust motifs are the biggest subtrend to happen in gold jewelry right now. Inspired by Antonio Canova’s neoclassical sculpture The Three Graces, Pamela Card’s resort ‘21 necklace is the perfect pendant.

Bouyant Brights

Even city dwellers look forward to trading in a dark winter palette for cheery brights and lively shapes. Breakout brand Alexis is a mother-daughter duo based in Miami, so the generational blend of classic and on-trend elements create the most timeless pieces, and the Sabelle maxi dress is a perfect example. Accredited to playful brands like Le Manso and Sandy Liang, funky childlike rings are the bitesize dose of Resorts colorful maximalist theme. Upgrade the mini trend with a lapis cocktail ring made of 18K gold from Rush Jewelry that’s equally fun but considerably more mature. At this point, strappy sandal heels are discerningly not going anywhere and Bottega Veneta’s new pink pump is a modern 90’s throwback. Jacquemus has become synonymous with resort style fashion so the iconic Chiquito will never disappoint.

Earthy Neutrals

Whether island hopping or enjoying a casual sunny day, an airy, easy fit is on-brand for sweltering forecasts and a coordinating set is the chicest way to ace comfort and style in one swoop. Aussie swimwear line Matteau specializes in high quality swimwear and its apparel is just as revered. Simple and considered, this lightweight Poplin cotton 2 piece is idyllic but still parred-back. This set consists of a flowy full skirt and gathered top. Incorporating both sophistication and minimalism, both are banded at the middle for a subtle sporty element. Decorate the ensemble with staple summer pieces, like a canvas bucket bag and woven leather sandals. Embody the casual chic persona that is Bottega Veneta with two easy accessories, like the gold curb-chain necklace and tortoiseshell frames.
