A Resort Wear Guide: The Sara Joy Encyclopedia

Resort wear is a unique way of dressing that differs from your usual vacation wardrobe. As well as being easy to wear and ultra-versatile, resort wear has an elevated elegance that will make you feel chic and confident as you stroll from the pool to brunch and back to the pool!

And while resort wear is a sophisticated choice for holiday dressing, it’s by no means boring. Talented designer Sara Joy has taken resort wear and added her own playful, colorful spin. With eye-catching prints in stylish, wearable designs, Sara Joy makes packing your bag for vacation more fun than ever.

To simplify resort wear shopping, our fashion gurus have done the research and put together our guide of resort wear must-haves. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for a loved one, these Sara Joy pieces make thoughtful gifts for all the travelers and daydreamers in your life.


One of the staples of a resort wear wardrobe is a sarong. Available in a fabulous range of colors and prints, Sara Joy sarongs are the ultimate in versatile style.

Wear your sarong around your waist as a chic beach cover up, or get creative and tie it as a dress or a halter top. Drape it around your shoulder as a shawl, or throw it on as a summer scarf in the evenings. However you wear it, it adds a touch of breezy grace to your look!

Drawstring Caftan

Another versatile addition to your resort wear wardrobe is the caftan. Our best-selling piece, this comfortable caftan has a drawstring waist, a hook and eye closure at the chest, and tassel details that instantly elevate your summer style.

When it’s hot out, there’s nothing better than having a lightweight dress that can be thrown on for instant, comfortable style.
