Difference Between Vacation, Summer, Resort, Beach Dresses

Choosing the right dress this summer is easy with our Dress Guide. When it comes to selecting the perfect dress for your beach getaway, understanding the nuances between vacation, summer, resort, and beach dresses can make all the difference in curating your ideal wardrobe.


Vacation dresses typically feature vibrant tropical prints and airy, flowy silhouettes. They're designed to evoke a sense of wanderlust and carefree relaxation, perfect for exploring new destinations or lounging by the pool. Vacation dresses can be off shoulder dresses or dresses with a tropical print either subtle or bold.

Resort dresses exude timeless elegance with their classic designs and modest cuts. Whether you're dining at a seaside restaurant or attending a sunset soirée, resort dresses effortlessly blend sophistication with allure, ensuring you always look poised and polished. Resort dresses are more classic and can be worn to more formal settings for dinner.
