Words by Timothy Diao

There's always a reason to dress up, especially during summertime in the tropics. Whether you're staying in the city or escaping to a beach house for the weekend, we explore the new ways to bring your best sartorial foot forward under this heat.

Discover a whole new color palette anchored on pale hues like easy neutrals, buttered yellow, and watercolor peach, as well as classic colors like french navy and sage green.

Wear these easy-on-the-eyes hues in contemporary silhouettes. Enjoy your summer fun in swimwear that features a plunging or asymmetrical neckline. After your swim, reach for bold new cover-ups, like a chic caftan, pull-on shorts, or a city-to-beach skirt.

Though your adventures for this season might be limited, your wardrobe options shouldn't be

resort hues

This season's hottest colors are easy on the eyes: pale neutrals, buttered yellow, sage green, french navy, and watercolor peach.

Anchor your looks with a classic base color palette; think swimwear in optic white or dark blues. Build it up with a chic cover-up in pastels, like a soft yellow, light green, or even a fun pink.

Sartorial Swim

New swimwear for summer? That's a no-brainer. For spring/summer 2021 we're looking at cuts that celebrate your fun side, like a plunging neckline or an asymmetrical cut.

If these silhouettes aren't your style, try out a more athletic cut like a classic rash guard and bottoms combination.

There's no cookie-cutter choice for what you rock at the pool; what's important is that it speaks to your aesthetic and brings joy to your summer.

breezy cover-ups

Elevate your cover-up game with bolder sartorial picks. After a refreshing dip or even when you're just lounging by the beach, reach for a fun caftan in bold prints. If a caftan is not your look, you can opt for easy-to-wear bottoms like a soft skirt that you can style for the city too or even a pair of shorts that's comfortable enough for a day under the sun.

Whether you're flying off to a private resort—after following all the safety protocols, of course—or driving to your slice of tropical paradise, there are a lot of ways to update your resort wear wardrobe.

Start with an easy and breezy blouse paired with a chic utilitarian skirt, or wear your favorite tankini top with a timeless pair of jeans. Dressing up for a casual day under the sun always calls for a good resort look.
