The Resort 2014 (aka Cruise 2014) is still taking place. I think this is the collection that stays in stores for more time than the famous Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter Collections.Because it has a variety of pieces from swimsuits to trench coats from office wear to cocktail dresses covering every season and every moment.
I personally believe Resort collections give the most realistic, wearable designs. Though most of us ignore this collection thinking these are for the people who take luxurious vacations on cruises and it is very expensive. But now designers are targeting everyone and it seems they believe anyone can go on a vacation. Whether this is true or false, we can always take inspiration from anywhere and anything.
Of course we don’t have to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on these. But we can always observe and see where these big labels are heading and what are the trends the top designers are trying to create using their runway. Get Inspired! We can always find something similar in high street or in retail fashion outlets.
I have almost checked all the collections showcased so far. I have selected my favourite trends which have been repeatedly showcased throughout the RESORT 2014 COLLECTION. Here the expected trends are in a bundle.
There are plenty of Jumpsuits, Crop Tops & Culottes. What else? Designers have re-engineered the peplum for another round.This collection seems like an engagement between Menswear & Women wear. Yep! It has Laces, Voluminous Dresses, Maxi Skirts and Culottes, Bold Strapped Footwear and sporty look.
It is not going to be out of season so soon. Celebrities specially Miley Cyrus, have already started to wear this piece.It has been spotted in almost all the collections. So why are you still waiting? Go! Grab your piece! You can check a full post on Jumpsuits here.

Crop Tops are continued to be a strong trend for another season. Crop Tops are already having the peak of their life cycle. And it seems they are going to stay there for a little longer than expected. (Check out my post on How to Style Crop Tops here) You can check a full post on Crop Tops here

Everyone loves a well depicted animal print. I have seen a range of snake skin, zebra & ring lizard skin throughout this collection. Mostly it is presented in Black & White, Earthy Neutral and Pastel colours.
Go Ahead! Reveal your inner wild side.

The athletic look is still on trend. Sport inspired looks are all over the runway. I feel like contrast seams which gives the illusion of track pants going to make a unique office wear.
|Prabal Gurung Rochas Phillip Lim|
Maxi Skirts with a high slit is going to be a hit in this summer. I could imagine two trends going hand in hand. A detailed crop top and a simple maxi skirt. Sooo Chic!

We all know Kate Middleton has already given a spot light for this Balmacaan during her recent outings. (You can check the Best style Moments of Kate Middleton here). Through Resort 2014 Balmacaan emerges as a key outerwear piece. I feel it is going to be a hit trend in the upcoming Fall/Winter Season.
