The Best Luxury Resortwear Fashion For Summer

By Emma Reynolds |  May 16 2019


For jetting off to the Hamptons or the South of France, dress the part in silky sets and printed dresses from fashion’s most celebrated luxury resortwear labels. Read on for some of this summer’s most covetable pieces.

Pondichérie

Rina Caftan, $245

Pondichérie founder, Devon Fisher, started her brand with sustainable employment for women in mind. She was inspired by the seaside town, Pondicherry, India, where she purchased a luxury silk caftan, as well as growing up in Kauai. Her 100 percent linen pieces are all made in New York and are breezy for beach days and come in neutral colors for an understated-yet-chic look. We love the Rina Caftan with boatneck details and oversized pockets. pondicherie.com

Johanna Ortiz

Journal of a Traveller jungle-print wrap dress, $1,234

Colombian designer Johanna Ortiz recently celebrated her brand’s 15th anniversary. Known for chic daywear, silky dresses and vibrant prints, her dresses are a must for any vacation. We specifically love her new high summer collection that focuses on animal prints in a variety of long-dress silhouettes, florals, lace cutouts and puffy sleeves – of course, it wouldn’t be a Johanna Ortiz dress without her signature ruffles and other feminine touches. This Journal of a Traveller dress from her recent collection is available on Matches. johannaortiz.co

Alexandra Miro

Raphaela Maxi Dress, $497

British resortwear designer Alexandra Miro plays around with bright pops of colorful and simple-yet-chic prints, like thick stripes, polka dots and colorblocking. She has both resortwear and swim, making her pieces perfect for frolicking in the South of France or heading to a dinner party in the Hamptons. Her pieces have feminine silhouettes, accentuating all different body types. We love the Raphaela Maxi Dress in white with bright yellow polka dots. alexandramiro.com

Heidi Klein

Quincy Bay Smocked Bodice Maxi Dress, $505

UK-based swim and resortwear label, Heidi Klein, is one of Britain’s most renowned resortwear brands. First started as a small boutique in Notting Hill, the label has grown and is now shoppable at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and other luxury department stores around the world. This specific piece is a completely new design for Heidi Klein and features a smocked bodice for comfort and support (and to add a chic design element, almost resembling a top and skirt) and slits along the side for breathability during those hot beach days. heidiklein.com

Mara Hoffman

Floral-Print Swimsuit, $362

From beach parties in Mykonos to a yacht vacation off the coast of the South of France, a bright floral swimsuit is an absolute necessity. Not only does Mara Hoffman’s suits have flattering details, like a tie in the shape of a bow around the waist, all of her products are made with sustainability in mind. Each product she creates, she sets certain standards for environmental ethics and human rights so you can feel good about wearing her colorful creations. farfetch.com, marahoffman.com

Jaline

Nieves Handwoven Wrap Pareo, $195

Handmade in Oaxaca, Mexico, this midi skirt is the perfect wrap to pair with a one-piece swimsuit or wear with a tank top for a casual dinner. Textiles, including the cute tassel details, are all sourced from Mexico and the blue color evokes founder Jacqueline’s latest line of whimsical-yet-chic pieces. We love the bright blue hue that can take you from the summer and throughout your vacations during the year. jalineresort.com, net-a-porter.com

Figue

Alessia Dress, $725

Figue creative director, Stephanie von Watzdorf, was born near Paris and spent summers in the Mediterranean and Italy, so it’s no wonder that she brings her worldly view into her designs for resortwear brand, Figue. All of the brand’s pieces seem to be inspired from somewhere, infusing a sophisticated-yet-free-spirit style. The Alessia dress, new for this season, features tassel details, waterfall ruffles and a chic neutral color palette that is versatile for any summer getaway. figue.com
