18 Beach Resort Dresses to Pack for Vacation
The best part of traveling to a beautiful beach resort? If you ask our style editor, it's not the sun, sand, or sea (though those are all up there)—it's the opportunity to flaunt your most gorgeous getaway dresses. From billowing maxis to sexy minis and tropical prints to the classic LWD, here are 18 breezy beach resort dresses that'll carry you through your trip in style.
Zimmerman Zinnia Midi Dress
Every detail of this Zimmerman dress is perfect, from the shell-embellished belt to the tie shoulders. Made from 100% linen, it’s super breezy for a hot tropical destination.
Mara Hoffman Lolita Dress
Mara Hoffman’s take on animal print is bold but not the least bit cheesy. The monochromatic brown zebra pattern is just right for transitioning from day to night.
Farm Rio Tropical Tile Jumpsuit
Prefer a romper over a dress? This one from Farm Rio features a plunging V-neck, unique tile print, and most importantly, pockets.
Aish Lebanon Dress
Elegant yet effortless, this breezy Aish tank dress goes straight from the beach to the bar. The one-size-fits-most piece is made from 100% cotton hand-dyed and loomed by craft communities in India, where founder Nupur Goenka was born and raised.
Heidi Klein Belize Printed Silk Mini Dress
Beach bums, this one’s for you—Heidi Klein’s coral-printed tunic dress was made for every sea-centric vacation.
Kalita Aphrodite Mini Dress
Want all eyes on you? Kalita’s bright pink mini number will do the trick. Its lightweight cotton construction and plunging back will keep you feeling cool while looking hot, hot, hot.
Dodo Bar Or Julie Dress
An off-the-shoulder dress always looks resort-ready, and this one’s retro floral print adds a little something special.
Tory Burch Embroidered Linen Mini Dress
This elevated cover-up looks great with a white or navy swimsuit and your favorite pool slides.
Everlane The Japanese GoWeave Picnic Dress
If you’re more of a minimalist, consider this solid button-front dress from Everlane. Made from the brand’s signature Japanese GoWeave fabric, it’s wrinkle-resistant and lightweight—so great for travel.
Cleobella Amarilis Midi Dress
Wear this playful button-down over your bikini and flip-flops by day, then dress it up with block heels and statement earrings when it’s time to seek shade.
Poupette St Barth Kimi Floral Mini Dress
When the sun goes down, don this festive floral mini with your go-to dancing shoes.
LoveShackFancy Norma Crochet-Trimmed Maxi Dress
A white cotton dress will never go out of style. We love the sheer lace insets on this one—perfect for showing off a colorful swimsuit underneath.
Thierry Colson Valentina Maxi Dress
Menswear shirting meets feminine ruffles in this striped maxi from Thierry Colson.
Ba&sh Talia Dress
If you like to keep things casual, go for this green mini. Its super simple silhouette is easy to wear with anything.
Farm Rio Colorful Birds Maxi Dress
TBH, this is the coolest dress we’ve seen in a while. Patchwork panels, embroidered lace trim, a low back… this baby’s got it all going on.
Modcloth Your Time to Shine Maxi Dress
Wear this floor-length frock out for dinner and dancing on your favorite Caribbean island.
