his resort 2022 season almost seems too sacred to be interfered with after two long years of slobbing on the couch during summer and hoping for another “outside” experience. Several months after pinning looks on our mood boards and waiting for an opportunity to slay, we can all agree it’s indeed time to shine. This 2022, the resort style game is fiercely charging beyond the default maxis and straw hats to more fun and unpredictable vibes.
Think of yourself in more party ensembles and vintage-inspired accessories because life is too short for boring vacation outfits. The unspoken theme of this season is “Dopamine Dressing,” a juncture where comfort meets higher vibrations in an oh-so-boujie fashion moment. It’s time to picture yourself in the finest apparel sitting pretty in a luxury hotel with a rooftop pool and living out your best bucket list life.
Check out these whimsical 2022 resort wear trends that are giving vamped-up resort style…
#1. Embellished pieces

#6. A classic neutral look
The elegance of a neutral-toned outfit on a breezy summer evening is what classy entails.

For instance, a bold-colored mini dress underneath a neutral-toned jacket adds a refreshingly minimal twist.
