Over the past few years, more and more local resortwear fashion labels have sprung up in Singapore, offering original, vibrant designs with comfortable, lightweight material that are just perfect for the tropical heat. Whether you’re looking for resortwear fashion for everyday living in Singapore, for your coming travels, or you’re simply a fan of the fashion style, you’ll love this list of resortwear in Singapore!
Riviera chic fashion
Available online and at various stocklists.
AQUARIVA is a swanky womenswear fashion label that seamlessly brings the iconic Riviera chic fashion trend to Singapore. You’ll encounter a mishmash of summer and resort staples including jumpsuits, kaftans, dresses, and resort bottom wear. The versatile apparel goes hand in hand with a pair of heels for a cocktail party or pared back with sandals for a casual poolside brunch. The flowy silhouettes mean these stylish pieces are also friendly for all body types.
Garments designed with tropical climates in mind
A boutique that carries a mix of modern garments that are designed with tropical climates in mind deserves a rightful spot in this guide. Attaby is where city chic meets resortwear and features the usual suspects like unfussy dresses decked in an array of vibrant hues and tropical patterns. Visit this e-store for a collection of fashionable and sophisticated resortwear.
Luxury fashion designs from the Nordic
Krag Nordic is an online store with a love for the timeless sophistication and simplicity of Scandinavian design. The store currently carries a selection of resortwear and swimwear from Danish brands – the daring colour combinations, beautiful fabrics and feminine shapes of Hanne Bloch, and the quality wardrobe staples of 2NDDAY.
Stylish and lightweight resortwear

Lavanu transports you straight to Bali with its beautiful resortwear. Designed by a Japanese designer and handmade in Bali, it’s no wonder the designs come in peculiar prints and patterns that you won’t find anywhere but here.

Kimonos, kaftans, beach scarves and statement accessories are what you’ll find at The wit and the will. The pieces come in luxurious silks and cotton, embellished with intricate embroidery, pom pom trims and tassel fringes. Feeling a little wary showing off some skin? Fret not. Their collection of beachwear is strategically designed to cover up just enough to save your blushes, while keeping your style intact.
Fun, unique and quality fashion
theWYLDshop.com is a fun fashion label that boasts an eclectic mix of Australian brands like MINKPINK, Le Specs, Staple the Label and 8 Other Reasons, just to name a few. Their garments speak chic street style with tons of colours, textures and fabrics. Though not labelled as a resortwear boutique, we think these pieces are perfect for fashionable globetrotters.
Quirky prints and vivacious colours
Take one look at Vamastyle’s vibrant range of tropical resortwear, and you automatically think “summer”. Inspired by all things bright and colourful, founder Kaitie Manani specialises in resort and swimwear perfect for a sun-kissed lifestyle. Her designs are instantly recognisable for their striking shades; clever, unique prints; and flattering silhouettes that are versatile enough for lounging by the pool with a martini as well as evening parties.
Affordable, nautical inspired cruisewear
200 Victoria Street, #02-34, Bugis Junction, Singapore 188021. Also available online and at various stockists.
This brainchild of founder Jaren Ho was born out of two things: a love for the sea voyaging lifestyle she experienced on a yacht a few years ago, and the increasing popularity of the resortwear style in Singapore. Yacht 21 aims to bring luxurious yet affordable cruisewear apparel to Singapore. And true to its roots from the deck of a yacht, much of Yacht 21’s product offerings are nautical inspired so you’ll look right at home cruising around the world on a yacht (or well, dreaming about it).
