Trend Round Up: The Best Resort 2016 Trends Of The Season

This Resort 2016 season claimed numerous trends, but there were some that stood out distinctively more than others. Here are our top picks for the best of the best trends we saw hit the look books and runways.

Ruffles N’ Stuff

Ruffles are the best way to add a light flirtatious flair to any outfit. This season’s Resort Collections had a wide array of them. They accented sleeves and skirts creating a sense of mystery, and an air of manipulative flamboyance.

Garden Florals

Florals were everywhere setting the tone for spring withdrawals. Whether embossed, embroidered or printed, it’s clear that though never “ground breaking,” florals are one thing that won’t ever go away. But you know what? With these beautiful pieces, I would never want them to anyway.

Sheer It Goes

For those interested in a sultrier look, these designers have catered to you. Sheer pieces were a unique touch to collections this season and created a great balance between intrigue and adventure.

Blush For Me

Blush seems to be the mother of all colors this resort season.  From fur trench coats, cool jumpsuits and cape jackets, it was a staple color everywhere. Ultra-feminine, blush was used as an energetic counterpart to these androgynous looks (and one traditional-style dress).

Pretty Pleats

No resort collection feels complete without some element of pleats. They came in an array of sizes and styles, easily perpetuating a strong vintage feel.

Patterns and Prints

Almost every designer had a hint of pattern or geometric work involved and the color combos deepened each concept. Some did Mod and Retro styles while others developed more modern and sophisticated prints. One thing was evident, there was no shortage of it on the runways.

Extra Baggy Maxi Pants

While these are an offset of JNCO’s oversized vintage jeans, they were inculcated into resort collections  in a major way. They’re gradually becoming the “it pants” of the season and ushering in a new wave of tomboy chic.

Back Lash

All it takes is some good back action to make a lasting impression. Some of the best silhouettes this season involved peek-a-boo surprises and unusual cuts behind. This trend alludes that the more dimension an outfit has the more alluring it tends to be. After seeing these, I have to agree.
