Sometimes called “cruise” wear, resortwear is usually cut in light, breathable fabrics that are comfortable to wear throughout the day. The best resortwear is designed in natural material and comes in summer colors or beautiful prints like floral and tropical patterns. Resortwear naturally evokes the desire to travel to exotic seaside destinations and is much more than just a beach bag and sandals, and finding the right piece can be pretty challenging.
With this in mind, we have put together a selection of resortwear styles that are perfect for strolling through the city, as well as spending the day on the beach.
