When you think of a fashion investment piece, you think of something from a Resort collection. Contrary to the big statement pieces with extended concept and visual narrative of the two main seasons: spring-summer and fall-winter, resort collections tell a breezier and more relaxing stories, and a wardrobe befitting the name of the season. Now, let’s skip the lengthy intro and dig right into the biggest hits of Resort 2020 — since February is likely the last chance you can splurge on these fashion items you can wear for the many months, and years to come.
THE LOOK: HELLO, BOHEMIAN!
A cruise isn’t a cruise without a floaty maxi dress that flows when the sea breeze blows. As the force remains strong with the 1970s bohemian sensibility, the only maxi dresses you’ll ever need are those that come with eclectic prints, ruffles and laces, worn with suede boots or fringed sandals for a complete look.
THE KEY PIECE: RELAXED SUITING
Suiting takes a more relaxing approach this season, befitting the casual, less rigid spirit of the holiday time. Go for wider and slouchy trousers, all the better in muted palette of beige, blush, grey and mint green.
THE KEY PIECE: JUMPSUITS
Jumpsuits continue to reign supreme, albeit with a more casual and sporty vibe, from the scuba-inspired army green jumpsuit from Off-White to a trench-like everyday jumpsuit from Bottega Veneta and Stella McCartney.
THE MATERIAL: TARTAN
Who says tartan is for just winter? Ditch the thick, woven fabric and keep those criss-crossed bands, then you end up with a chic, masculine pattern that’s great for both a head-to-toe look or for a statement coat to layer over your sweet, floaty resort dress.
THE DETAIL: BIG BOW
Bow makes a big appearance this season, no pun intended. The girly detail comes in big size, and adorns the front and the side of chest and waist in dresses of all imaginable lengths, down to the top of your new shoes.
THE DETAIL: GLITTERS
As the season coinciding with the year-end festivity, the sparkle of glitters never go away from the resort collections. This year, with the return of the 1980s fashion, glitters and metallic make an even bigger statement for evening wear and party outfits.
THE COLOUR: ORANGE
The usually demure resort palette gets a colourful twist this season, starting with the many shades of orange. From tangerine to brick and peach, orange is definitely the new black.
