We've seen the first glimpses of what we'll be wearing in 2022, and we can hardly contain our excitement.
With the world opening up and the travel industry booming again, resort wear has emerged as a prominent fashion domain that consumers are looking forward to indulging in.
To celebrate this evolution, we've taken a look at how resort wear will evolve over the next year.
The key to success in fashion is consistency, and while resorts may have their own distinct styles, they all tend to share certain trends in complimenting fashion through its silhouettes, design, and color.
Six trends that will appear in resort wear this year:
1. Goddess dressing
Trends evolve on the go... shifting with each season... and sometimes, a complete curveball disrupts the status quo. You
can’t get any further from a tracksuit than a divine chiffon gown, complete with Grecian-inspired draping (literally, at
Dior, they staged their show at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens.)
Spotted at Dior, Alberta Ferretti, and Huishan Zhang
2. Laced Up
The lace trend has been around forever, but the pieces are shining this season. Designers sent lace pieces down the
runway, giving off a romantic, beautiful vacay vibe that oozes pristine beauty. This lacework, known in English as
cutwork, is handcrafted with embroidery and then delicately cut off the fabric pieces to reveal an exquisite embroidery
Spotted at Uluwatu Balinese Lace, Ralph Lauren, The Row, and Versace
3. Lighten Up
The summer light is precious this year—it's suddenly all about the bright, beautiful, and light fabrics. Resort wear is a diverse category that can include everything from cotton to silk, but it all goes back to one thing- lightweight fluidity.
Spotted at Alberta Ferretti, DKNY, and Armani
4. Retro Twist
The retro trend is a bit of an overused term these days, but that's because it's so true. Resort-style is a mix of classic pieces with a modern glaze, and it's not hard to see why resort looks are so coveted.
Spotted at Dior (who did a retro look on the runway last season), Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Alberta Ferretti, Anna Sofia Schloss, Lanvin, and Hervé Léger
5. Timeless Pieces
This is a tough one because resort looks are constantly evolving with new designs, but there's something timeless about
them—they're classic and freshly updated. Many designers have been sending pieces down the runway that are not only
timeless but also wearable year-round (like the jacket above).

6. Statement Prints
An easy way to elevate a Resort look is with bold, statement-making prints; the latest print trends find a place in fluidic fashion pieces besides timeless print themes like eclectic flora & tropical fauna prints.
