The Resort collections are timed to perfection. Just as the temperatures begin to soar, we are treated to a fresh burst of inspiration for dressing in warmer weather. Whilst I am perfectly happy in my off-duty style of vintage summer dresses and an expanding collection of long pleated skirts, my summer workwear wardrobe leaves much to be inspired, and the Resort collections have given me food for thought.
Bursts of bright colours are sticking around for the significant future, evolving with a slight sixties Modish vibe. One or two colourful pieces teamed with crisp white and polished black create a strong Pop-art inspired colour palette. Long sleeved bold blouses neatly tucked into high-waisted pencil skirts create an office outfit with personality. Alternatively, flip the look ala Celine and roll up the sleeves of a starched white shirt; paired with belted trousers in hues of fuschia, aqua or tangerine.
