32 Resort Trends
From walking shorts, caftans and sandals to full-
length evening dresses for women and light dinner
jackets for men, resort wear is unique in its design
and function. Designers, store buyers and the media
are viewing this style as a specialized year-round
look. There are some important reasons for this.
Areas such as Las Vegas, The Bahamas, Palm Beach,
San Juan and Marbella were holiday destinations, but
they are now becoming places of year-round living.
Below you can see some hot trends for the upcoming
Resort Season 2012:
• Quiet Color-Blocking: This trend has stayed
relevant from Summer through Winter 2011, and now
has evolved as part of Resort 2012. While color-
blocking in the past has been shown as one bright
color against other similarly bold shades, some of this
season’s color-blocked looks include neutrals either
layered on top of one another or paired with earthy
hues. The result is more polished and sophisticated
than ever before.
• The Sailor Girl: Inspired by life at sea (or near
it), the most popular representation of this look is
a white and dark blue striped t-shirt. You can layer
up your look as was shown on the Gucci runway this
season with a white and navy striped top, shorts and a
cardigan, with tan leather sandals or black heels.
• Tropical Prints: Flowers and paisleys are in the
air! But don’t underestimate the power of intricate
geometric patterns and a muted color palette. I
suggest to only wear one print at a time. Although
clashing prints has become one of the popular trends
for 2011, it’s wise to avoid extra print combinations
