Let’s be honest, most runway designs are not the most wearable in real life. Unless, of course, you have a model’s bod, in which case we hate you. Here’s our breakdown of 2018’s 5 top Resort runway trends you can actually wear on vacation!
#1 Greek Goddess
Any vacation – whether a city break, beach getaway or romantic escape (ok maybe not hiking adventure) – calls for that special flowy maxi dress. Whether your personal style is Boho babe or sleek chic, look no further than Chanel’s recent Cruise collection for transcendent inspiration with an ancient twist. Take that, Aphrodite!
#2 White Out
Want to show off your tan? There is no better colour than white. Team white separates with strong colours or go head-to-toe monochrome for a pulled together look like this one from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut at Dior. Different textures also work well, but choose something light and breezy like eyelet broderie or lace to work the full effect and keep cool while exploring your new surroundings!
#3 Work It
Prada’s first Resort collection is at once surprising and expected. Of course Miuccia singlehandedly pulled off combining boudoir edge with ‘athleisure’ chic = GENIUS. Your travel style need not be confined to slubby T-shirts and leggings when you can put lingerie and active wear on double duty. This one’s for the active nomad who loves more structure and comfort yet still wants to be edgy.
#4 Between the Lines
Stripes have always been a staple for Cruise/Resort collections, but doing the nautical style can get just a tad boring. Shake things up like Louis Vuitton’s Japanese-inspired collection by layering a striped element together with a bold blazer, an unusual print, or colours that pop. Definitely not for the faint of heart!
#5 Tie it Up
You’re out exploring and the last thing you want is to fiddle about with your hair. Minimal hair and beauty is perfect while on vacation mode, and this embellished hairband trend will ensure that you’ve got that expensive look without trying too hard. It doesn’t even have to be Chanel – just pop on a simple band, tousle those beach waves, and you’re good to go!
