Ask Our Style Techs | Affordable Resort Wear
Q: My daughter is headed to an upscale beach resort for her honeymoon. She’s in her 20s, petite and her style leans toward the conservative and classic. Can you suggest some key pieces that won’t break the bank?
– Carol T.
A: First of all, congratulations to your daughter on her wedding! After all the craziness and excitement surrounding the big day, she will no doubt be ready for a relaxing and romantic honeymoon. (And you a spa day.) She’ll want to bring clothing that is sexy and comfortable at the same time, depending on what the happy couple likes to do (besides the obvious!) when on a beach vacay. We put together a few must-have ensembles, mixing the same pieces with different looks. Plus, great news — a ton of resort wear is on sale right now! Nothing below is over $140.
For the Beach
Fringe-embellished swimwear is THE look to be seen in on the beach this summer. And if you love water sports and plan to be active, consider bringing along a rash guard to protect you from the sun and any potential wardrobe malfunctions.
For Lounging Poolside
When hanging out at the resort pool, it’s time to glam things up! A one-shoulder maillot with a filmy cover-up, movie star shades and heels will do the trick.
Rompers and jumpsuits are so on-trend this season, and contrasting black and white takes this one from day to night with a switch of accessories. Perfectly chic for a swanky beach resort. Bonus: The white will set off a tan. Or if you prefer a jumpsuit, this style is darling.
For a Romantic Dinner
A dress that has a resort vibe and can be dressed up or down is versatile and perfect for a beach vacay. Gold accessories accent a tan and quickly update the look for evening.
