The term “resortwear”
describes summer fashions that one would don on chi-chi holidays in warm weather destinations. Expensive yachts, vibrant palm trees, and poolside cocktail bashes are recalled at the mere mention of this style endearment—it embodies the lifestyles of the rich and the famous, and most certainly, the fabulous.
But while resortwear has a lot to do with seaside summer dressing
, it’s not just about the apparel—it’s an attitude! Glamorous, effortless, and nonchalant all at once, resortwear gives women an aspirational picture of summer style
while still keeping within the bounds of practicality
Need a visual aid? Check out the latest collection from Salvatore Ferragamo
—a spring/summer opus marked by a mix of swimwear
, boho style
, and retro tailoring
. Brought to life by a soft, lush palette of gem tones and burnished neutrals, the collection was inspired by the 1969 film La Piscine and is a beacon among recent “resortwear” creations.
“I want to go back to that free-spirit[ed], bohemian, gypsy attitude,” said Masimiliano Giornetti
, who designed the women’s wear line for the Italian fashion house. Indeed, with its voluminous peasant frocks
, belly-baring blouses
, nautical outerwear
, and elegant bodysuits
, the collection gives off the scent of summers in Saint-Tropez; the wearer a sensual, spirited woman with a flair for dressing. At the same time, the clothes are functional
—styled right, wide-leg trousers
, matching blazers
, and crisp tunics
would suit any career girl to a T.
