Pinstripes. The pinstripe was all over the autumn/winter collections and its only natural for it to transcend to the next season.

Head To Toe Lace. Lace continues to be a favorite with designers, although the styling lesson from Resort 2014 would be to create a head to toe look through layering.

Pleats. Pleats were more refined for resort, used for everything from pants, languid summer dresses to dramatic evening gowns.

Sheer Blocking. Never mind colour-blocking, Resort 2014 sees sheer blocking step into the limelight.

Opposites Attract. The stark and smart combination of black and white is still making a statement for resort 2014, whether in cool prints or graphic separates.

Gems. The heavily embellished looks that glide down runways all year round were scaled down to 3-D gems that dotted dresses, sweatshirts and coats.
|From L-R: Burberry Prorsum, Marios Schwab, House Of Holland, Tory Burch and Roksanda Illincic|
Trench Coats. A staple in women’s wardrobes, the trench coat got a fresh makeover with bold prints, cool new shapes and some dazzling embellishment.
|From L-R: Jean Paul Gaultier, Burberry Prorsum, Nina Ricci, Calvin Klein Collection and Christian Dior|
Exotic Textures. From wild animal prints to luxe and exotic textures, the Resort 2014 collections were about a sense of escape.
