How to Mix and Match Resortwear

When it comes to styling there is no particular set of rules that a person has to follow. Fashion trends constantly change. This gives people the freedom to express themselves through their style. There is always an open door for them to explore.

 As we enter the summer season waves of fashion advice and clothing recommendations are going to start coming in. Summer, or "vacation season," is approaching. We can expect an influx of fashion advice and clothing suggestions. Shopping BeachCandy Heritage and Organics Collections will help you create stylish vacation looks. 

Is it necessary to style an outfit for vacation?

Whether you feel it’s important to style your outfit or not depends on you. Some people simply go with what they have while others plan their outfits for their trip. It’s all based on each person and their specific preferences regarding the importance of the outfit. 

Tips On How to Mix and Match Resortwear

There are no set rules for resort wear styling, so feel free to let your personality shine. One way is to mix and match your outfits. Combining different types of clothing can be challenging, especially if you’re mixing and matching different pieces. Here are a couple of tips that can make this process a little bit easier.

1. Always have one basic/classic option in the outfit.

When we talk about basic/classic options, we mean a piece of clothing that has neutral colors such as black, white, gray, brown, tan, or even navy blue. 

Having a basic neutral piece in your wardrobe will make it easier to style. It’ll also make it look cohesive to the eye when pairing it with other, more colorful pieces. This tip will work with whatever other piece you are adding to the outfit.

2. Utilize the monochromatic trend. 

A current fashion trend that has been going viral in the media is styling your outfits based on monochromatic colors. The monochrome trend is styling an outfit that uses one color but can be different shades of that color.

Say, for example, that we are styling something blue. The color palette would be different shades of blue such as light blue, navy blue, and midnight blue. Using this tip can elevate a look and make it look fancy, especially when doing it correctly.

3. Don’t be afraid to wear, even MIX prints.

Mixing patterns can seem quite scary when you’re starting off, but it can be quite simple. One tip to style prints is making sure the design(s) of the pattern is in different sizes. 

Using different sized patterns will create a more cohesive looking outfit rather than just different shapes on a piece of clothing. 

Another tip is using pieces where the colors are similar or make sense to be combined. They don’t have to be exactly the same. Doing this will elevate your beach vacation outfit and make it more pleasing to the eye.

4. Utilize MIX AND MATCH pieces that can be versatile.

Using versatile pieces of clothing can make styling an outfit for a vacation way easier. It will also make packing quite easier too. When we say “versatile piece” we mean an item of clothing that can be styled in different types of ways. 

Let’s say we have a simple mini skirt. We can style it as a mini skirt, a strapless top, a head wrap, and so many other ways. Styling a versatile piece will allow you to have more options for outfits. Lots of womens resort wear is versatile and can be styled in multiple ways.

5. Wearing the RIGHT clothing makes you feel more confident and conscious.

Although mixing and matching your clothes can be challenging, make sure that whatever you’re wearing makes you feel confident. We often hear that beauty is in the eye of the beholder…The same rule applies to styling your clothes. 

Every person has their own perception of what they think is beautiful, especially when it comes to fashion. Wear pieces that you like and make you feel like your best self. As long as you’re comfortable and happy with what you’re wearing, that’s ultimately all that matters.
