Wear the Latest Resort Collection Styles on Your Next Vacation

One of the best parts of planning an island vacation to an exotic luxury rental is the clothes you get to pack.

One of the best parts of planning an island vacation to an exotic luxury rental is the clothes you get to pack. Your typical attire just won't do for a trip like this. You need cocktail dresses, cover-ups, breezy pants and accessories that scream wealth and refinement, and fortunately, the latest resort collections from the world's top designers just came out! From black and white palettes to iridescent T-shirt dresses, the styles are diverse, playful and perfect for trying out in an unfamiliar vacation destination. 

Here's a look at the most chic collections to watch out for and where you should go to wear them:

Color, color color - that's the key feature of the latest collection from Donatella Versace. Sunshine yellow, body-skimming dresses, cropped pink striped sweaters, slinky little black dresses and blazers with sheer sleeves are just a handful of the steamy wardrobe options this line flaunted down the runway, and without a doubt they'd be perfect on a vacation to the Italian Lakes. Surrounded by beautiful scenery and equally gorgeous vacationers, you'll stand out among them for all the right reasons.

Christian Siriano
New kid on the block Siriano did a lot of prepping for his very first resort collection, and you can tell after one look at the color-popping pieces. Pencil skirts with strips of yellow or lime green, royal purple leather mini-dresses, cropped motorcycle jackets and A-line skirts with hot pink stripes strutted their way down the catwalk, and should definitely be seen poolside at a cocktail party in St. Croix. In addition to the vibrant hues, Siriano also added some white-hot dresses with unique neck and hemlines, which could be the perfect formal attire for the see-and-be-seen event you're attending during your luxurious stay in the Caribbean. Even if you're just sitting poolside at your Caribbean villa, you'll feel like the A-list traveler you are wearing the top-of-the-line duds.

Calvin Klein
This minimalist designer focused on style with sex appeal, with many midriff-baring halter tops paired with midi and full-length skirts. While belly-baring shirts might not be ideal for the workplace or even your favorite restaurant at home, they'd be perfect for a vacation at a luxury rental somewhere tropical, like Barbados. Style is more daring in these locales, and you'll be flaunting your fashion mostly in front of people you'll never see again, so toss your fears away!

Alice + Olivia
The brand's designer Stacey Bendet emphasized the classic bohemian vibe for its resort 2014 collection, using big, floral prints and mod styles, like a bustier and high-waisted pants. This selection of clothing could fit in perfectly with the styles of California or even Hawaii, so be sure to pick up your favorite pieces before you stay at a luxury villa in these locales. You'll want to wear many of these pieces even after you return home from your villa rental, as they're versatile, eye-catching pieces that you can easily layer or wear around town.
