Flee The Cold In 2017's Biggest Resort Trends

Ruffles are going to be everywhere.

By Adele Chapin

Planning a tropical getaway in the next few months? First of all, lucky you! Just in case you need help packing, we tracked down some designer inspiration to get things started. Here are three of the biggest trends from this year's resort collections. And the good news is: these looks are easy to replicate at a lower price point. So you can buy a second—make that third—frozen drink.


Designers put ruffles everywhere they could for resort season, from a Zimmermann bikini with ruffle sleeves to an airy Marysia dress. Sorry to any ruffle haters out there: they are majorly on-trend for Spring 2017 too, and probably beyond that.

Dramatic sleeves

Cover up with voluminous sleeves that make an impact. Flared bell sleeves are perfect for a white-sand beach, while models for Chanel's Cuba resort collection wore sleeves in sheer organza.

Stripes never go out of styles, and designers like Rosetta Getty and Carolina Herrera imagined those stripes in every color of the rainbow.
