We love nothing more than getting a chance to see a new part of the world, sample exotic dishes and learn a foreign tongue, but perhaps the best part of travel is the sartorial freedom it provides. Here, 6 resort trends and the destinations in which you should wear them. Because if there is ever a time to try something new, 5,000 miles away from home feels like a good place to do it.
Wear In: Istanbul
Harness details popped up all over the place this resort season, so try a dress with leather-trimmed cutouts or a cinched top over culottes while hunting for treasures in Istanbul's Grand Bazaar. Photo: @chufy
Wear In: Paris
Vintage flares and slouchy boyfriend jeans are still going strong, but straight-leg styles feel fresh. Pick any wash and pair with a blouse and light blazer for dinner and a stroll through the Marais.
Wear In: Cape Town
This season ushered in the arrival of haphazard geometric prints in eye-popping colors, the (incredibly enthusiastic) younger sister of the beloved color-blocking trend. Don a rainbow-hued dress for an evening of live music in Cape Town.
Wear In: Venice
Folk-inspired florals (the moody alternative to the fanciful feminine styles of late) adorned everything from capes to shorts to gowns in the resort collections. Try a high-necked dress for gondola rides and museum visits in Venice.
Wear In: Dubai
Monochrome suiting is here to stay. Channel the androgynous vibe in a vibrant, slouchy suit for a visit to Dubai's underwater zoo.
Wear In: London
More is more when it comes to resort's most ubiquitous silhouette. Tuck a slim-fitting crew neck into a midi skirt for a minimalist spin on demure dressing—a perfect look for afternoon tea at the Wolseley.
