What’s Trending: Resort Wear 2023

What about the start of a new year makes us immediately consider going on vacation? Maybe we all need a relaxing break after the chaos of the holidays. Or perhaps we’re living in cold and gloomy locales and ready to soak up the sun. Whether your next trip is already booked or you’re in the process of planning an island getaway, resort wear is out and ready for you! Garbarini has everything you need for your next vacation, from dresses and pouches to sunglasses and sandals.

Here’s what is trending in resort wear in 2023:


Lace Sleeved Dresses

Prepare to see airy, feminine outfits everywhere you go this year. Yes, even on vacation. If you want to embrace this ethereal trend, look for a lace top long sleeve dress. We suggest Self-Portrait Wide Cotton Lace Wide Sleeve Mini Dress. This white dress features flounce sleeves that frame the waistline and hem. Throw this relaxed dress over your bathing suit, and you’re ready to go from the pool to dinner without missing a beat.


Cutout Dresses

Frame Delicate tie cut out dress

Is there ever a better time to wear a silky cutout dress than while surrounded by beautiful scenery? Frame’s Delicate Tie Cutout Dress in ultramarine is the perfect complement to a coastal destination. Crafted from stretch silk, this gorgeous gown features side cutouts and slinky straps that can be styled in multiple ways. Go barefoot and wear this dress to dinner on the beach with your partner. The vibrant blue color will pop against nature’s backdrop.


Asymmetric Dresses

SWF asymmetric maxi dress

Chances are you’ve seen someone wearing an asymmetric dress recently. One of the most popular silhouettes in this style is strapless with a singular side cutout. If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to wear this style, try your next weekend getaway! We love SWF’s Asymmetric Cut-Out Maxi. The bright green color screams tropical locale and will pop against your tan.


Tube Top Dresses

LoveShackFancy Tannie Tube Dress

Y2K-inspired looks are not going anywhere anytime soon. If you’re looking for a cool girl aesthetic outfit, look no further than the LoveShackFancy Tannie Tube Dress. The vibrant and dreamy maxi channels all the beachy 2000’s girl feels with its shimmery floral print. Plus, it’s soft and light and perfect for vacation. Could you see your favorite rom-com character wearing this outfit? Us too. 


Cowl Neck Dresses

Bec & Bridge Cowl Neck Maxi

When a fancy dinner at a five-star resort is on your vacation to-do list, you need a dress that fits the atmosphere. We suggest the Bec & Bridge Celestial Cowl Neck Maxi Dress. This elegant maxi skims and flatters the body and features a high neck and low-cut back. Pair it with a strappy heeled sandal for an extra glam vibe. The best part? It’s also a fantastic wedding guest dress.


One Shoulder Dresses

Smythe Single Shoulder Asymmetrical Dress

Now is the time to fully welcome back body-baring silhouettes. After cozying up in loungewear all winter — or, let’s face it, the past two years — it’s time to show off our figures again. And what better place to do so than at a resort? We love the Smythe Single Shoulder Asymmetrical Dress. This stunning midi dress is made from a stretch fabric that’s slightly shirred. Although it’s bodycon, the material is substantial enough to make you feel nice, secure, and confident. 


Bubble Sleeve Dress

Sovere Relish Midi Dress

Every suitcase should be packed with some kind of linen item when headed to a beachy destination. This year, that item should be the Sovere Relish Midi Dress. It has a fitted bodice and bubble sleeve that can be worn up or off the shoulder to elevate your look. Not only is the material perfect for a beachy getaway, but it also fits in perfectly with the airy style trend. Pair this dress with gold accessories to really stand out and pop.


Double Strapped Heeled Sandals

Dolce Vita Novah Heel

Sure, vacation is the time to go barefoot and free. But when you have shoes as amazing as the Dolce Vita Novah Heel, you’ll be looking for excuses to wear them. This sandal pairs cool straps with a sculptural, angular heel. Wear them with everything from dresses and skirts to your favorite pair of jeans. And they get bonus points for being made from water-based and recycled materials.


Aloha Pouches

Aloha Mini Pouch

Upgrade your beach bag game this year with Aloha Pouches. These bags were inspired by the traditional floral prints of Hawaii and come in various sizes and colors. Choose from a minismallmidmax, or reversible tote depending on how much you plan to carry. Or better yet, get various sizes to swap these pouches wherever you go. With their bright, vibrant aesthetics, it seems these pouches were made for vacation!


Retro Sunglasses

Tom Ford Angelica Sunglasses

Are retro sunglasses really retro if they have a timeless quality? Either way, prepare to see more vintage-style frames this year. We love Tom Ford’s Angelica sunglasses which have a feminine cat eye shape and a cool combination of metal and acetate. Even if retro isn’t your thing, Garbarini offers a variety of Tom Ford sunglasses to keep you protected and chic whenever you’re in the sun. Choose the frames that fit your personal style!


Minimalist Sandals

Tkees Gemma Sandal

A good pair of flat sandals is a must for any beach vacation. For those who prefer a minimalist silhouette with maximum comfort, we suggest TKees. These sandals are made from soft Brazilian leather, so you won’t experience the discomfort other sandals in similar shapes may cause. For a sleek double-strap look, try the Gemma TKees. However, if you’re a fan of a slide, the Betty TKee might be for you. And if basic is best, there’s always the TKee solid sandals
