By Aimee Heckel
You’ve booked your dream resort vacation. Now make sure you dress the part.
Now is the perfect time to stock up on great vacation clothes because most swimsuits, cover-ups and dresses are majorly on sale. So whether you’re gearing up for a fall vacation, or planning ahead for next summer, check out this guide for what to wear on a resort vacation.
1. Choose a clothing line that specializes in resort and sailing attire.
Sail to Sable is a clothing line of hand-embroidered, cotton dresses and tunics that are lightweight, versatile and beautiful. We love the bold colors with crisp prints and lines that make the pieces easy to mix and match to minimize the weight of your suitcase.

Browse the different clothing lines, from one that donates to the Christopher Reeve Foundation, to an adorable Mommy and Me line, with coordinating styles for you and your mini.
2. Check the runways for ideas.
Many top fashion designers put out special “resort” lines of vacation attire. Our favorite for 2013 is the Giorgio Armani Resort 2013 line. We love his pairing of swingback tops with nicely pleated Bermuda shorts.
Be inspired: Look for soft pastels and flowy silk gauze and organza materials.
Victoria’s Secret has much more than push-up bras. We love VS’s Beach Getaway line (most of which is currently discounted for the season). Get this stunning maxi wrap-around cover-up dress in five different colors for $20 off, now only $39.50.
