It may have been back to reality for most of us who had to return to work last week, but A-listers like Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo and  Julianne Hough extended their holiday vacations into the New Year.

From the beaches of St. Bart's and Mexico to Miami, Hollywood's hottest stars celebrated the New Year with some fun in the sun.

While they may have taken a break from the set, these stars didn't slack on style during their beach getaways.

Wowing us with more than just their beach bods, Palermo, and Hough both hit the sand in style, donning chic cover-ups over bright or white (in Hough's case) bikinis to catch some rays with their main men in toe.

Also scoring major points in the style and bikini body departments,Naomi Watts, and Jessica Alba and Cindy Crawford all looked impossibly chic while playing in the sand and ocean with their families.

Flaunting her baby bump, mom-to-be Jenna Dewan-Tatum channeled her tropical surroundings in colorful prints while enjoying a beach babymoon with husband Channing Tatum.  

But what really took these star's resort-wear to the next level were the finishing touches. Fashionable flair -- straw fedoras, retro shades, stacked bangles, beaded necklaces, printed beach bags -- took these beach babes' style from chic to magazine-worthy.

Even if you won't be enjoying a vaca anytime soon, these stars' resort style will transport you (at least for a few minutes) to someplace fab and fashionable.

Check out the stars' chic resort style and get inspired to plan your next getaway.
