Who doesn’t love summer? Cool breezes, lighter clothes, and time spent outside. But the hottest season of the year also means packing lightly and looking good while you lounge on the beach or travel to visit friends and family. If you want to take your summer looks up a notch, check out these three resort looks that are sure to make you look like a style star all summer long.
Long, Sleek Waves
Big, bouncy beach waves are on trend and are so easy to recreate. Start by applying mousse to damp hair, then style with a big barrel curling iron and let your hair cool. Comb out your curls using fingers, never a brush—the friction will create frizz. Next, run a flat iron over all of your hair except for about an inch at your roots. The longer top will sweep up and frame your face beautifully, giving you that extra height we love in resort looks.
Nail Polish as an Accent
Adding a coat of bold, bright nail polish is a great way to make neutral looks stand out. Try light pink on your toes, electric blue on your fingers, or silver for both—this will bring your ensemble from bland to bright in an instant. Just be sure not to get too carried away; you don’t want your nails to look like you dipped them in paint! One coat should do it. If you have time, apply two coats and let them dry completely before adding any other accessories.
This past summer has brought us amazing new and creative forms of body art. Quirky tattoos such as peony flower tattoos and manta ray tattoos are becoming increasingly popular, as people seek out new ways to express themselves. There is no better time than summer to show off your new body art in an eye-catching swimsuit or bikini. If you’re feeling bold, consider getting a quirky tattoo like a flamingo thigh tattoo! The possibilities are endless. The trick is to find a unique location for your unique look. Remember that you don’t have to get completely naked—you can keep some parts covered up by opting for one of these stunning resort looks that feature beachwear clothing that still shows off your new ink. Whether it’s full coverage or just enough coverage, we can guarantee that these colorful looks will turn heads at any pool party, even if it means someone accidentally spills their drink on you! And who knows?
Pastel Hair and Makeup
Since every year that goes by seems to bring more and more trends into hair, there’s a good chance you might have missed some. Take last year for example: We saw pastel hair colors become huge in 2017, and now it seems like not one person is sporting black or brown locks anymore. If you’re looking to get a little bit of color back into your hair or maybe even dip your toes into something new, check out some pastel makeup looks.
Sporty Yet Chic Styles
Sporty styles are always trending on the resorts and we’re expecting them to be especially popular in summer 2022. Brands like Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Burberry will all offer chic sporty looks. Whether you want a tracksuit or a printed swimsuit, these designs will be your go-to. If you’re looking for something more formal, consider pairing your favorite pair of jeans with a loose blouse and sandals. This look is sure to keep you cool during those hot summer days!
No one wants to look like a red-faced zombie on their vacay, which is why you should keep your skin in tip-top shape by getting a facial before heading out. Ask your aesthetician to use products that will help hydrate your skin and fade any hyperpigmentation or breakouts. Then spend time at home wearing SPF every day so that your tan won’t give you an unwanted glow. Once you arrive at your destination, be sure to reapply sunscreen throughout the day and make sure to wear a hat when going outside. The sun can be brutal! Also, if you are prone to getting wrinkles while traveling, it might be best to stay inside during peak hours of sunlight. That way you won’t accidentally get too much exposure.
With sunshine saturating every inch of your morning routine, your makeup has got to stand out. But don’t worry—bright eyeshadow doesn’t have to be overdone or tacky. Start by giving your eyelids a swipe of matte white paint and follow up with a neutral-colored shadow on the lids. Adding color to the inner corners of your eyes will bring brightness and life to their appearance. Finish off with mascara and a little bit of blush. If you want to add some extra sparkle, add a few glitter dots in strategic places! The combination of these colors will give you an uplifting look that is sure to inspire.
This fashion trend has no rules. Shorts, skirts, and dresses are taking on anything from floral prints to bold geometric patterns. The prints complement beach wear by bringing color and vibrancy to what can otherwise be an understated look. Whether you’re looking for a dress or a pair of shorts, there’s something here that will make your summer unforgettable. Here are some of our favorite pieces:
Leading looks in resort wear include graphic-print tops, midi-skirts, flirty polka dot rompers, silk print capris, cropped t-shirts in eye-catching colors like mint green and magenta pink, kimono style tops that feature mandarin collars and large sleeves.
Vibrant Colors in Jewelry, Shoes, and Bags
One of next season’s top trends is color. Don’t be afraid to try out something new, whether it be a pair of red stilettos or a fuchsia handbag. Experimenting with statement-making jewelry and summer-ready bags is another fun way to incorporate color into your look. Opt for an orange bracelet or yellow clutch to brighten up your style and make you feel super confident in your own skin! Remember that there are no rules when it comes to fashion, so don’t let anyone tell you what colors are in and which ones aren’t. Take risks, experiment, and have fun. The only rule is to wear whatever makes you happy!
What’s so beautiful about resort and summer looks is that they’re as much a piece of art as they are a statement outfit. For daytime, it’s all about bright colors, florals, and attention-grabbing patterns. Think embellished floral jumpsuits, psychedelic prints in neon shades, or bandeau dresses in bold colors. In the evening, you can go from day to night with a few simple tweaks: A flowy dress might become an elegant halter top paired with high-waisted pants. And if you want to wear your hair down? Go ahead—you won’t look out of place at dinner while everyone else is sporting an updo. The best part? You can wear these outfits over and over again throughout your trip without anyone batting an eye or spending hundreds on new clothes.
