When it comes to vacation and resort wear, comfort is key. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. You can find dresses that are both comfortable and stylish.

For vacation and resort wear clothing, I usually go for bold prints and bright colors. Vacations are a time to have fun, and I enjoy wearing clothing that makes me happy when I’m on vacation.
I’m wearing a large, and it fits me perfectly. This dress would be great for a wedding or shower, and I would wear this for a date night or to church also.
Look at the lace detail!!! This dress looks like it cost way more than it does. It is available in many colors if purple isn’t a color that goes with your skin tone. I also love how the bright blue of the sunglasses pops with this dress.
The Lou Matelassé Leather Camera Bag was a splurge purchase that I’ve been eyeing for over a year. I bought a neutral color since I want to carry it with everything. However, since it is a splurge, I also linked this Similar for less version that I have in Sands and Black.
These Beige Wedge Sandals are also a great neutral that will go with almost anything. I like to wear them with jeans and shorts also. They run TTS and are also available in baby blue.
Make A Statement With Your Vacation and Resort Wear
Maxi dresses are perfect for vacation and resort wear because they’re comfortable. I love how they cover your legs, and they come in so many different styles. This Crossover Halter Neck Maxi Dress might be out of the comfort zone for many of you. But, don’t be afraid to try something new and playful, especially when you’re on vacation.
This is a statement dress that is sure to get attention. When you are wearing a dress like this, make sure that you have on your lipstick and accessories, and throw back your shoulders and strut like you look like a million bucks. Confidence is the best accessory you can add to your outfit.
With a dress like this, I wear the Silicone Coverups that I’ve talked about before. This dress has a low cut-out on the back, so wearing a strapless bra is almost impossible. I’m not chesty, so the silicone coverups work great for me.
The Quilted Crossbody Bag is just the perfect size to carry your phone, lipstick, credit card, etc. and still look dressy enough to carry with a dress.
Choose Lightweight Materials
When shopping for vacation and resort wear, look for dresses made of cotton, linen, or other lightweight materials. If your vacation is in the tropics or somewhere else equally as warm, then you want to dress to stay cool.
The Halter Neck Floral Print Maxi Dress doesn’t look great with my skin tone. I look better in more saturated colors, and this one kind of washes me out. However, I like to show clothing for everyone, so while this dress isn’t for me, it might be perfect for you.
This dress is available in several colors and prints; the Bluishviolet is the color that would have looked the best on me.
The back of this dress is just as pretty as the front. It is unique, and will definitely draw attention. You might want to keep a wrap or shawl handy just in case the night gets chilly.
Lapis has always been a gemstone that I gravitated toward. I love the gold veining that runs through the stone, and each one is so unique. The Drop Earrings in Bronze Veined Lapis Turquoise are on final sale, and there are only a few left.
The Crossbody Shoulder Evening Purse is a structured bag that has several compartments. I love the details on this bag, and the color is one that will go with everything. This bag is one I’ll carry out to dinner, church, or to a meeting.
These shoes are so gorgeous! I was amazed at how comfortable they were because I thought they might clop as you walked. The pleated fabric is soft and feels great on your feet. These Pleated Bow Knot Heeled Sandals run TTS, and I’m wearing beige, but they also come in several other colors.
The WOW Factor
There are times when you want to enter a room, and all the eyes turn to look at you. This Hot Pink Halter Maxi Dress is not for the faint of heart because you will be the center of attention when you wear it.
When I think of vacation and resort wear, I think of a show-stopping dress like this. It is flowy, so it swishes as you walk and billows in the breeze from the ocean. The great thing about a dress like this is that you can eat as much as you want since this hides any stomach issues you might have. #nolumpsorbumps
I chose to accessorize with pearls and let the dress be the star of the show.
This is another dress that looks fabulous from the back. Bows are tending this year, so this dress will show that you pay attention to fashion trends.
Here is a closer view of the Quilted Crossbody Bag and Nile – Freshwater Baroque Pearl Charm Bracelet.
Notice the bows on the Champagne Dress Sandals? These dress sandals are so delicate and feminine looking, and that is hard to do with a size 9 foot. I love the champagne color; it will look great with any color dress.
Vibrant, Wild, and Funky Vacation and Resort Wear
Vacation and resort wear dresses can be a fun and comfortable way for women over 50 to express their personal style while enjoying a relaxing getaway. I realize that the large and vibrant print of this dress might be too much for some of you, but this is exactly my style. Knowing what you like and what makes you feel confident and happy is important. Take a few minutes and look through your closet to figure out your “happy style.”
This is the only dress that I styled that is long-sleeved. I love the balloon sleeves, and they kept me warm at dinner with the breeze of the ocean flowing through the restaurant.
This is a relaxed-fit shirt dress style, and you can belt the dress or let it hang loose. If you are between sizes, I suggest sizing down. The dress is 97% Polyester and 3% Spandex, and it is recommended that you hand wash the dress in cold water. It is fully lined, so you don’t have to worry about the dress being see-through.
I know a lot of you have seen me link to similar Brahmin bags, and you might have wondered how they look. This Vegan Leather Crocodile-Embossed is not Brahmin, but it isn’t bad. You can see the pretty embossed crocodile material and the sheen on the bag. At under $50, it is a great bag.
Try Something New With Vacation and Resort Wear
Jennifer from A Well Styled Life was my roommate when I recently went to Miami. We are a lot alike in many ways, but completely different when it comes to fashion. I gravitate toward bright colors, and she goes toward black. We somehow complement each other, and I’ve found myself wearing more black lately, and she is branching out into colors. She even agreed to try on this dress!
Don’t be afraid to try something new and playful, especially when you’re on vacation. You might be surprised to find out that you look great in something new. Just look at how gorgeous Jennifer looked in this dress!
