With an increasing number of labels demonstrating Resort collections each year, it means that we have a lot to be excited about. From fresh silhouettes to bold florals and patterns we have assembled the most powerful trends that have emerged from the Resort 2016 collections.
2. Obi Belts
The Oriental influence popped up anywhere on the spring runways and has remained a strong trend which featured prominently at the Resort 2016 Collections, as numerous designers show pieces sporting obi belts.
From the beautiful belted coats at Adam Lippes and Sportsmax, to the announcement red leather jacket in Acne Studios. This is definitely the most chic way to keep your clothes in place this season!
Florals were rather bold and bright coming in all shapes and types. The items ranged from beautiful floral and black pantsuits in Stella McCartney, into the simple but no less gorgeous shift dresses. Florals also dominated the Erdem Resort 2016 runways, and appeared in Topshop Specific collection.
4. Midi Hems
In the fairly shirtdresses in Gucci into the geometric garments at Tome, designers have shown us the midi-hems are a significant trend in the Resort 2016 collections. And why wouldn’t we be excited about this?
The great thing about the midi hem is that it is feminine and chic, and it can be especially flattering if you find the appropriate cut. If you’re a tall woman then you can fool around with the span, either just above the knee or just below — be certain the hem drops on the slimmest part of your leg since this generates a more slender shape. If you are on the shorter scale then be sure to select a hem that’s marginally over the mid calf. And always put in a set of killer heels to pull the look together!
5. Brush strokes for different folks
We’re enjoying the beautiful patterns and the multiple colour versions they popped up in the Resort 2016 collections. Prints were spotted on dresses, dresses, skirts and coats and even handbags. In the 60’s and 70’s inspired prints to bold geometric patterns, there is something to suit every personality preference. Designers sporting sets with bold brush strokes include the Emilio Pucci, Derek Lam, Etro, Missoni and BCBG Max Azria.
Certainly there is a lot to pick from thanks to this incredible Resort 2016 collections this year. The question is which trends will you be purchasing after the selections hit the stores?
