Relaxed resort wear for 2018


There’s nothing quite like feeling the sand between your toes, the cool summer breeze and the hot summer sun on your skin. Now that winter is officially in the rear-view mirror, if you’re anything like us, you’re yearning for a tropical getaway right about now.

Resort wear originated with the rich and famous, who spent their days lounging on yachts and drinking an Aperol Spritz, but these days it’s so much more than just a niche trend for the affluent and important. In 2018, resort wear has officially taken over the style scene for spring summer. Think easy linen shirts, printed pants, off-the-shoulder dresses, statement straw bags and a classic pair of leather woven slides. Holiday dressing is certainly far from boring. And if you didn’t get to Europe for the summer, now you can pretend you did with our pick of this season’s best swimwear, too. We’ve rounded up the best resort wear and swimwear picks; all that’s left for you to do is pick the destination!


Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect straw fedora or a pair of on-trend skinny sunglasses, you can find everything you need for a luxurious summer getaway at Stockland Green Hills. Say so-long to boring t-shirts and simple slides, this season it’s all paying attention to texture, print and intricate detail.

An oversized linen shirt from David Jones will only look better the longer you wear it and an off-the-shoulder dress from Seed Heritage will stop any pesky tan lines, while still looking stylish and sophisticated. Or, go from the beach to the bar with a statement straw bag from H&M paired with printed pants from Tigerlily. Fake a bronze, summer glow with an instant self-tanning gel from David Jones and your vacay fashion transformation is complete! Now all you need to do is sit back, relax and grab a margarita (or two!).

David Jones Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel $40, David Jones Sunseeker Linen Overshirt Dress $39, H&M Straw Bag $59.99, H&M Sunglasses $12.99, Seed Heritage Spotty Dress $99.95, Sportsgirl Melinda Leather Woven Flat $119.95, Sportsgirl Sunny Fedora $29.95, Tigerlily Agnella Top $140, Tigerlily Azar Blouse $160, Tigerlily Agnella Pant $200

When you finally start packing for your summer getaway, make sure you pack ample swimwear options that will carry you from lounging in the pool to jet-skiing with friends. Go for an Aztec inspired colour palette to complement the sun-kissed glow you’ll have after three days spent soaking up the sun.

This rust coloured one-piece from Bras N Things is full coverage, but still has a hint of stylish detail that will look amazing pared back with round sunglasses from David Jones and frayed slides from Dotti. For something a little more on the fun side, Tigerlily has plenty of prints and cuts designed to flatter every body and City Beach has the perfect printed towel to lounge on. Finally, pick up the ultimate summer carry-all from Carla Swimwear. We’re particularly fond of the black and white colour palette and Aztec print on this version.

Bras N Things Bubble Caged One Piece $99.99, Carla Swimwear Seafolly Carried Away Oversized Beach Bag $119.95, City Beach Roxy Make You Move Towel $79.95, David Jones Minkpink Enlist Sunglasses $49.95, Dotti St Tropez Fringle Slide $29.95, H&M Bikini Top $24.99, H&M V-Shaped Bikini Bottoms $14.99, Tigerlily Parisa Tara Triangle Bikini Top $90, Tigerlily Parisa Tiger Bikini Pant $90
