The Most Stylish Resort Wear for Men

Bugatachi Solid Linen Sport Shirt

This button-up is an upgrade on the traditional linen shirt. It has a French-style placket and curved hemline that give it a more formal look, which is great for romantic dates or dinners. However, the linen fabric is still suitable for more laid-back occasions as well, making it a versatile shirt for any vacation! It comes in three different colors – white, beige, and classic blue.

A patterned shirt is a must-have resort wear for men item. However, the Lyam Silk Resort Shirt is a stylish option made from luxurious silk twill fabric for a more put-together look. There are so many fun colors and patterns to choose from, so you can pick the one that best fits your aesthetic. You can wear it to the beach, out to dinner, or simply while lounging by the pool with a good book.

Ser.o.ya Lei Terry Jacquard Shirt

Men's Lei Terry Jacquard Shirt 0 - resort wear for men
Neiman Marcus

The Ser.o.ya Lei Terry Jacquard Shirt is an effortlessly cool design that is guaranteed to turn heads this summer. It’s made from micro-terry fabric is super soft but still breathable for those hot days and warm nights. However, we love this shirt because of the fun jacquard brown and pink print! It has just the right amount of tropical flair without being too over-the-top.

Men's Zeppelin Brushed Terry Shorts 0 - resort wear for men

Don’t forget to get the matching terry shorts. They have a ribbed waistband and relaxed fit so they’re perfect for lounging around in. Even if you won’t wear them as a coordinating set, they still look great separately!

Madewell Johnny-Collar Sweater Polo Shirt

Madewell Johnny-Collar Sweater Polo Shirt - resort wear for men

If you’re looking for a modern take on the polo, then look no further than this shirt from Madewell. It has that iconic polo neckline but with a ribbed trim and relaxed fit that’s flattering on all body shapes. Plus, the waffle-knit fabric gives it a unique, resort look that goes with shorts, chinos, or jeans. You’ll also love the vintage linen color because it goes easily with practically everything else you have in your suitcase.

Frame Open Weave Polo Shirt

FRAME Open Weave Polo Sweater - resort wear for men

The Frame Open Weave Polo is very similar to the Johnny-Collar Polo by Madewell. However, the one big difference is that it’s also made with silk in addition to cotton. That 10% gives the shirt an incredibly luscious feel that you won’t want to take off. It is mid-weight (not too heavy, not too light), but does have an open weave for more breathability.

AG Wells Linen Relaxed Fit Drawstring Pants

AG - Wells Linen Relaxed Fit Drawstring Pants - resort wear for men

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect pants to wear on vacation, these are it. The Wells Linnen Relaxed Fit Drawstring Pants are designed to be as comfortable as possible. The pull-on style has an elasticized waistband that can be tied close for an optimal fit. The fabric is a mix of cotton, lyocell, linen, and elastic, so it’s just as soft as it is comfy. After all, you’re on vacation – so don’t subject yourself to tight fits or uncomfortable materials!

AG Wells Drawstring Short

AG - Wells Drawstring Short - resort wear for men

AG makes great resort wear for men. We love the Wells collection so much that we also had to put their shorts on here! These bad boys have a 10.25″ rise and 7″ inseam so they hit right at mid-thigh. They’re just as comfortable as the matching pants thanks to the elasticized fabric and drawstring waist. If you’re going somewhere especially hot, then make sure to pick up these shorts in both colors (natural and sulfur sea).

GrandPrø Windward Boat Shoes

Cole Haan

We can’t talk about resort wear for men without adding the iconic boat shoe to our list. There’s something just so summery about them. Cole Haan’s GrandPrø Windward Boat Shoes are some of our favorites because they’re supportive and lightweight. It has a foam cushion made from dandelion rubber that will make you feel as if you’re walking on clouds. Go for the classic British Tan color or choose the navy, dark chocolate, or paloma dove. 

Nantucket Cross Strap Sandals

Cole Haan

Flip flops are great for the pool, but it’s always good to bring something a bit more stylish with you on vacation. Skip the plastic and rubber and opt for a sandal made from high-quality leather instead. The Nantucket Cross Strap Sandals are lightweight and cushy (the leather molds to your foot the longer you wear it). Plus, you can always dress it up with some chinos or nice shorts, which is hard to do with a pair of flip flops!

Planning a vacation is the perfect excuse to shop for resort wear for men. But even if you aren’t headed out of town, you can still look and feel your best with these timeless pieces. They make great additions to any man’s summer wardrobe. So even if you’re just throwing a backyard BBQ or summer party, it’s still possible to exude that resort-style aesthetic!
