Originally created for the wealthy jet-setters, resort collections became popular among fashionistas over the past few years. With a more commercial approach than the main collections, their target is to fill in the gap between the spring-summer and fall-winter shows. They create a bridge between the two seasons and the way I see it, some how anticipate what's gonna happen next. You'll ask me, what to expect from fashion in 2014?
We're two months before spring-summer ready-to-wear clothes hit the catwalk, but if we look closely at the resort collections we can get an idea of what is yet to come. It's also a good way to figure out what garments are worth buying during sales. For instance, get as many crop tops as you like, because they won't get out of fashion anytime soon. As a matter of fact, all tops will get shorter, so don't be surprised when you'll see cropped shirts, jackets, or even sweatshirts.
White shoes are also worth buying. If now you wear them in head-to-toe white combinations, next year they will replace your black shoes in any outfit. Take a look at Alexander's Wang resort collection and you'll understand what I mean.
The black and white trend will still be in, while gold and pink will be again introduced in our wardrobes . I can feel there will be a small obsession for metallic colours, but this time with a strong 70s disco influence. Stripes get a glitzy update and the 90s power-suit will still be on everyone's lips.
Those things said, have fun shopping ladies!
