or those living in, or visiting warmer climates, there are a number of stores that sell resort wear fashion apparel. These easy, breezy garments are just what are needed for simple packing, or on-the-go people who wish to go straight from the beach to dinner. From lightweight fabrics that rarely require an iron, to beachy accessories that jazz up an outfit, resort wear appears to be an industry that has steadily been experiencing a great deal of growth.

“This season, everyone has been interested in nice, but casual, organic cotton dresses that can go straight from the beach to dinner. Also, anything with a nautical feel is extremely popular, such as dresses with blue and white pinstripes or men’s pinstriped shorts.” - Jennifer Lanigan, American Sailor Clothing, Kennebunkport, Maine

Kennebunkport, Maine, is known for its sandy beaches and tidal pools along the coastline. The relaxed, resort-like feel of the town is reflected in the downtown shopping districts, which feature an array of boutiques and galleries. American Sailor Clothing offers quality, classic resort wear to jazz up those closets. “This season, everyone has been interested in nice, but casual, organic cotton dresses that can go straight from the beach to dinner,” said Retail Buyer Jennifer Lanigan. “Also, anything with a nautical feel is extremely popular, such as dresses with blue and white pinstripes or men's pinstriped shorts.”

Men are also interested in that beach-to-dinner look, and the shop carries an array of soft, casual shorts in plaid, or weathered fabrics in red and yellow. “The pinstriped shorts with embroidered lobsters or fish have been doing really well, too,” said Lanigan.
