The island look is all about casual comfort and sleek elegance. Greet this sultry heat wave in ultimate style with our fave, new resortwear picks, featuring luscious fabrics and inspired prints.

1. In a dress by Noa Noa Hawai’i, your tropical adventure is just waiting to happen. Equally perfect with a heel or a slipper, these dreamy batik beach gowns absolutely float against sun-kissed skin. The best-selling Sash Skirt ($139) can be worn strapless, as a maxi skirt or as a halter dress. Ward Centre, 1200 Ala Moana Blvd., Ste. 250, Kaka’ako, O’ahu, 593.0343

2. Luxe textiles like Italian cotton and silk voile make a Malia Jones caftan the ultra elegant way to cover up. You’ll want to go straight from beach to boîte in prints like the Shibori Classic Kaftan ($395). Number 808, 66-165 Kamehameha Hwy., Ste. 4C, Hale‘iwa, O’ahu, 312.1579; Seaside Luxe, 72-100 Ka’upulehu Drive, Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i Island, 325.4765

3. All the salty girls know Mikoh for their sexy, uniquely cut bikinis. This season, sister designers Kalani and Oleema Miller also grace us with gorgeous resortwear in ravishing Polynesian prints. Their Hamptons Maxi Dress ($158) is perfect for sunset drinks, and after the sun goes down you’ll want to cozy up in the Australia Top ($119).
