Resort collections always seem to translate visions of travel and paradise, this year was certainly no exception with several inspired and beautiful collections. Here are some of the strongest trends to take note of from the latest cruise collection. 

The Classic Sweater

The classic cotton sweater made a huge comeback this season and was a favourite among many designers such as Victoria Beckham and Prabal Gurung. This cotton sweater is definitely a season must have, and an essential in everyone’s closet.

Ruffles and Frills

This season the ruffle added an ultra feminine mood to the collections. Ruffles for Resort 2016 were oversized, cascading, and in leather adding a tough edge to the delicate and feminine style. 

Bush Tones

Designers certainly had on rose coloured glasses when creating their Resort 2016 collections this season! The soft pastel hue was a favourite amongst the collections and you can expect to see much more of it, in fact Donatella herself dubbed blush the new white.

This season Lace was given a makeover to suit a more modern silhouette, adding gorgeous intricate details to pieces like jackets and dresses. The bold hues of the lace really drew in the focus of a look to the delicate lace details.

Off Shoulder

Off shoulder was undeniably the neckline of the season as seen on the runways of Givenchy and Marc Jacobs. It can also be noted that this style has taken influences from the East in collections such as Givenchy. 

Pleats Please
