5 Key Resort Trends That Reign Supreme in 2023

With the Autumn/Winter season behind us, designers are looking to revamp your wardrobe in exciting and unpredictable ways. Resort wear—or cruise wear—typically showcases a mix of coats and swimwear for the world’s globetrotters. For this upcoming season, high-end brands are showing us how to live our best lives by being bold and adding hints of glitz to our resort wear. 

Straight from the runway, designers are gifting us with a sense of normalcy as resort shows are back on the catwalk since the pandemic era began. Like Nicolas Ghesquière at Louis Vuitton, who transported us to a utopian future, resort shows create an escape to another reality or a much-needed vacation.

Last year, resort 2022 was about bodycon fitting, designer denim, fringe, and luxury leggings. However, this year, houses such as Gucci and Roberto Cavalli allow fashion enthusiasts around the world to be inspired by an array of colors, patterns and cutouts.

Read below as we discuss 5 resort trends that will dominate this upcoming fall season.

A symbol of French style, stripes continue to be a linear staple that inspires designer collections. From animal prints to contrasting lines, the best way to express having exceptional style is by breaking up your silhouette in various strokes of color.

The blueprint of any wardrobe begins and ends with this famous contrasting duo. Whether it’s a white blouse paired with this season’s must-have trouser or a black dress with white accessories, these colors will always be timeless.

During this resort season, the waist is a central point with various examples of emphasis on an exposed midriff. Belted abdomens, ring-cut dresses, and side cutouts are ways to achieve this paramount look for a holiday getaway to the emerald waters of the Maldives or a view of Miami’s lively ocean drive.

This starshade continues to shine bright— as it was listed as 2021’s color of the year by Pantone— a lifting color; this high-spirited shade indeed brings life to any wearer that takes on this powerful and energetic hue.

Catch the light as you walk with glittering sequins and lustrous metallics during this resort season. Like Alessandro Michele at Gucci, go full-throttle— or break up your gleaming piece with a luxe top like Ghesquière at LV.
