Winter time in Chicago is in full effect right now. As much as I love this city, traveling to a warm destination is a great break from the cold weather. Although I love any opportunity to travel! Fortunately, I’m going to be heading to beautiful Mexico soon and I can’t wait to spend some much needed time enjoying the warmth of the beach. I’m feeling super inspired by the resort looks my girls and I rocked in Greece for my dear friend Luba’s birthday celebration. Now that I have Mexico and resort wear on the brain, I thought it was the perfect time to share some of my favorite style tips with you to use for your next vacation.
Figure Flattering Swimwear
Chic swimwear is a definite must for great resort wear! I know, swimwear can be a stressful topic for many women. The good news is you can wear figure flattering swimwear! Yes, it’s possible! I simply can’t get enough of unique one piece swimsuits. After having kids I feel much more comfortable in one pieces to hide the tummy area. Mommas you know what I mean! Fortunately, one piece suits are a great way to flatter any body shape while enjoying your beach vacation. I’ve found one piece suits with interesting details and silhouettes to be the most flattering and a great way to still have fun with swimwear, without a bikini.
Wear Light Layers
When it comes to resort wear I try to keep things as easy as possible. One of my favorite ways to create a look that’s chic but still easy is with light layers. Lightweight cover ups are a must for resort wear. Personally, I love to wear cover ups that have shape and detail to them so they double as an outfit. Another way I like to create light layers for resort wear is to simplify a look like I did with this skirt! Pairing a statement piece with something a bit more casual and simple, like a t-shirt, is the perfect resort look. You can also add ‘lightness’ to your resort wear looks with white!
Complete Your Look
Even if you’re wearing a simple look like a great swimsuit and easy cover up completing your outfit will tie everything together for the perfect resort look. My favorite completer piece for resort wear? Hats! Hats are an absolute must have for your beach vacation style. Not only are they great to keep your skin well protected from the sun but they’re also a super easy way to complete your look in a chic way. Of course, a great pair of sunnies and earrings are also easy pieces to complete your resort looks.To add a fun twist with sunnies I can’t get enough of the small round shapes and clear frames that are on trend this season.
