Resort, the season that sits on the sales floor — and editorial calendar — the longest, is usually one full of “takeaway, holiday and updated bestsellers.” Practical clothing, if you will. Yet this season had some exciting, interesting standouts.
BOWS: Bows — built in to every evening look from Chanel and Erdem to Givenchy — offer girly touches to womanly looks.
JUMPSUITS: Not just a boiler suit; resort’s jumpsuits are more sophisticated, mixing elevated fabrics with sleek utilitarian details.
MAGENTA: The season’s boldest color!
PLEATED DRESSES: Pleats galore! Frocks came sequined, diaphanous and offbeat for resort.
POLKA DOTS: Resort’s print of the season: polka dots. They’re young, they’re graphic and they’re almost exclusively in black-and-white.
TRENCHCOATS: Trenches also dipped their toes into the eccentric resort pool by experimenting with color, patchworking and graphic details.
ZEBRA: Move over leopard, zebra is the animal print of choice for the resort season.
