Resort wear is clothing designed for trips to sunny warm climates in winter. Designers mix a bit of the previous fall/winter silhouettes with a sneak peak into the upcoming spring summer collections. Resort is usually for people who live in cold snowy places that go for a brief retreat somewhere warm as a welcome break and designers make special clothes for these holiday places such as Caribbean beaches, tropical islands, and for boat cruises through warm tropical seas. Designers offered up a wealth of options with their Resort collections. Here is a look at the Resort 2013 runway trends.
Lace. The feminine fabric has gotten an updated and modern look saturated in deep pinks, black and mixed with sheer. Lace dresses are sure to win over the most androgynous of dressers.
Short Shorts. Shorts will always be a favourite for the tropical beach crowd and this time was no different. Designers made them a wide and breezy to fit into the feel of the warm retreats that the holiday places are known for.
Peplum. Peplums, a carryover from the spring summer collections has proved to be a popular trend. The fall runways demonstrated its staying power and resort confirms its ongoing appeal. From denim to printed silks, peplum is here to stay.
Sheer White. Sheer white acting as a palate cleanser to the abundance of colour and patterns seen from past seasons is a welcome touch to the resort collections.
Embellished Collars. Statement necklaces have been the go-to solutions to spice up simple Tees and dresses but these pieces have sparkle built in them. Beaded and Bejewelled necklines popped up on Tees, blouses and sheath dresses that paraded down the runways.
