Biggest Resort 2013 Trends
Resort 2013 collections have all been presented already from New York to Paris and I must say, these clothes would make you want to spend days and days at St Tropez, tanning and drinking booze. Vivid colors and bold patterns, typical of the season, dominated, but designers also took cues from the oversize proportions seen during fall and experimented with layering and volume. Peplums, a carryover from spring, remained a popular trend, while neon hues added an unexpected twist to bohemian prints. Here’s the complete list of the resort 2013 trends:
1. Collar Bling
Adding a statement necklace has been the go-to solution to spice up simple tees and dresses, but these pieces have sparkle built in. Beaded and bejeweled necklines popped up on blouses, tees, and sheath dresses. This trend was seen at Elizabeth and James, Jason Wu, Philip Lim, Moschino and Louis Vuitton.
2. Cheeky Prints
While florals are usually the go to fabrics during this season, some designers decided to mix it up and play with bold and fun patterns too. Some were conceptual: Carven covered a skirt suit with a map and Céline showed a graphic head-to-toe polka-dot look. Others were more cartoony: House of Holland dreamed up muppetlike creatures and Giles Deacon sketched girls with bright pouts and flashy sunglasses. And finally, Acne cashed in with photo prints of currency on a pantsuit.
3. More Lace
Rendered in pastel hues, lace can come off saccharine, but dyed in saturated navys, maroons, and deep pinks, the feminine fabric gets a modern update. These dresses are sure to win over even the most ardently androgynous dresser. Seen at Erdem, Marc Jacobs, Alberta Ferretti, Erin Fetherston and Nina Ricci.
The marriage between fashion and sports continues, with athletic-inspired pieces like track pants, drawstring shorts, and anoraks artfully juxtaposed against heels and bright miniskirts.
