5 Resort 2018 Trends To Add To Your Closet
01 August 2017
Wearable vacation collection is something that any fashion lovers and avid travellers shouldn’t miss. From straw bags to Grecian headpieces, we’re seeing plenty of chic resort trends to add to your closet this summer. Functional, comfy, and stylish, these are the five resort 2018 pieces seen on the runways or inspired by designers which you can get your hands on:
Statement waist belts
Paying homage to the classic yet fun 80s belts, Carolina Herrera’s bold and chunky-shaped statement waist belts add an upbeat, playful vibe to your otherwise basic or conservative Little Black Dress or white frock. Take it a step further by channeling your favourite icon of the 80s and accessorise your outfit with pearl necklaces, black headband, Chanel gold earrings, or retro headscarves.
Lace-up gladiator sandals
From laurel leaf crowns to lace-up gladiator sandals, which are making a huge comeback, this resort season is all about Grecian vibes. These bright lace-up gladiator sandals by Topshop – inspired by the runways of Tanya Taylor, Chanel and Gucci during their resort fashion shows – would look good with practically anything, especially a long, flowy gown paired with a medium size straw bag while you lounge by the pool or stroll the flea market.
Channel the 60s PanAm stewardess with the rectangular, medium-sized carryalls and look sharp while you jet set across the globe. Considered to be the next It-bag, vintage-inspired airline bags are all the rage during resort fashion shows, as seen on the runways of designers like Tibi, Red Valentino, and Stella McCartney. If you’re going for the retro 60s look, match this Tibi bag with a shift dress and mod leather buckle slip-on shoes in brown or black.
Extra wide denim
Skinny jeans are out! This season, it’s all about breeze and comfort. As seen on the runways of Solace London, Oscar De La Renta, and Valentino, extra wide denim would be the chic and comfy choice as you browse through the museum exhibits or enjoy a good cup of coffee at that hip new café. If a pair of extra wide denim overwhelms you due to your short stature, consider pairing them with wedges, platform sandals or heeled clogs, which adds a 70s hippie vibe. The jeans would look great with bright blazers, white shirts, and rock t-shirts.
Leather thong sandals
Say goodbye to the tacky, plasticky thong sandals for casual poolside dressing. As seen on the runways of Dion Lee, Dior, and Valentino, thong sandals are now made comfier and more stylish in fur, feathers, and leather. These decorated leather thong sandals by Valentino are made of calfskin with tropical detailing on the front, along with adjustable buckle closure; giving you that extra comfort you need while lounging by the pool or beach or even strolling through the city.
