Trending Now | Resort 2018

Resort Collections have become some of the most highly anticipated fashion showcases in recent years.

The resort collection came from the pre-season lines of ready-to-wear that a brand produced for their customers who would vacation during the autumn and winter months in hotter climates when all that was available in stores was the previous wintry A/W collections.  The modern manifestation of the resort collection is aimed at customers who have bought their new A/W wardrobe and want to start buying pieces for their holidays, usually arriving in stores in November/December or February.

Resort collections not only provide some of the most beautiful fashion shows but some of the pieces can spend the longest amount of time in store. A designer has to ensure that their Resort Collection is universal and can be a one stop shop for their customers. Resort Collections nowadays will often see typically summery pieces side by side with some of the heaviest jackets, coats and boots, so it all has to mesh together and create an alluring aesthetic to attract customers, no matter what season they are buying for.

Below showcases some of the best of the trends from Resort 2018, from prints to specific colours to an exciting accessory. Keep reading for a little look at some of the easiest trends to follow to keep up to date with the latest Resort 2018 trends.
