The latest launched cruise season fashion lines (2016/2017) show great diversity: from logo t-shirts, stripes, tropical and flower prints, to checkered patterns, folkloric motifs and ethnic inspired details, and much more! The limits of fashion have been pushed forward yet again, with designers playing with fabrics and proportions. Some designs may seem over the top, but are definitely trending! Brace yourself – here are the latest resort fashion trends to keep an eye on.
Flowers, Flowers And More Flowers
Various flower patterns have always been in and this season isn’t an exception. Embroidered flowers have been suppressed by the printed or hand painted patterns. Everything is acceptable: from colorful graphic flowers that simply scream “groove is in the heart” (see Moschino’s designs), to very subtle prints, such as the ones from Dior or Louis Vuitton. Flower motifs are often accompanied with tropical ones, such as the Cuba-inspired designs of Valentino, or they are a part of the folkloric theme.
Stripes Of Every Stripe
Stripes have definitely been in for many fashion seasons: colorful, black and white, wide, narrow, vertical or horizontal – you name it! Stripes can be very powerful when it comes to visually changing your silhouette: wear horizontal lines on the upper part to visually enhance your chest; choose vertical lines for the bottom part to make your legs seem longer. A great new design by Rosetta Getty playfully combines different stripes, so feel free to copy this interesting look!
Colorfulness is desirable and so are the different types of fabrics patched together. If you’re lacking inspiration, just check out Marc Jacobs’ eighties-inspired-punkish-creation with neon colors!
Traditional Fashion Redefined
Many designs were born when designers started reinterpreting traditional fashion in a modern way. For example, ruffles are a huge hit now, partially inspired by the fashion of the flamenco culture. Same is true with South Asian fashion when it comes to wedding designer sarees. Extraordinary pieces are created through the innovative use of modern materials, new ways of combining textures and taking a step away from the traditional color palette. Take wonderful creations by Rohit Bal as an example and you will see that this type of fashion has a huge potential of expanding even further beyond its original Indian cultural frame.
Besides belts in earthly tones, exotic and colorful accessories are a must-have for the upcoming season! We’re talking bright purple, yellow, green, orange! Strongly colorful Bijoux is in, and so are scarves you can wear in whole new way – around your wrists. India’s fashion has influenced western trends big time: just check out these Mumbai-inspired chic platforms designed by Rupert Sanderson. If you want to tastefully complete your look, try wearing stylish sarees: they exist in many different patterns and colors, so you can easily find the one that suits you.
Tweed, Tartan And Extravagant coats
When it comes to fall fashion picks, materials such as tweed and fur are absolute winners. In order to add style to your outfit, try the latest cuts of shirts and coats. It is a misconception that they are suitable only for summertime. Shirts and coats are made of different materials: most frequently, silk and light wool is used for making the ones for cold weather. Accompany your coat with a pair of earthly toned boots and purse – and you will be stylish and warm! Scottish tartan is once again a popular autumn pattern, but this time – it’s combined with other patterns, even animal print. If you invest in an extravagant coat, make sure the rest of your outfit stays simple.
These are the most recognizable trends of the latest resort fashion shows. Which ones are your favorites?
