The Resort Trend

There was a time when resort collections didn’t really mean that much to us. Those days are long gone with major fashion houses and designers providing some very strong trends that are determining street style everywhere. The Bri Seeley team has identified our three favorite resort trends as follows….

1. SEA FOAM

Sea foam is a major inspiration,especially living in SoCal, the ocean determines much of how we live our life here and is the perfect touch for a resort collection. After all, resort collections are about summer and vacations – which are frequently experienced somewhere around the sea. Designers Antonio Berardi and Honor both included the touch of sea foam in their resort collection.

The inspiration also hits close to home for us at Bri Seeley with The Eleanor Dress and The Sidney Skirt. In the end E.E. Cummings said it best, “For whatever we lose like a you or a me, it’s always ourselves we find in the sea.”

 

2. FIT AND FLARE

The fit and flare trend is the perfect synonym of femininity with a style designed to highlight a woman’s curves. Cinched at the waist and flared at the hips, this classic silhouette is perfect for the summer season. Designers from major fashion houses like Alexander McQueen, Zac Posen, Pamella Roland and Band of Outsiders all included the silhouette varying in textures, fabric, color and print.

Here at Bri Seeley, where the feminine and classic aesthetic take precedent, you can find the fit and flare style with The Mae Skirt

 

 

3. SHEER COVERAGE

The sheer coverage trend is a special favorite for us at Bri Seeley as we think there’s a way to do classic and feminine without being conservative. This trend allows us to use more conservative silhouettes such as higher necklines and fuller and longer skirts without looking like we went shopping at grandma’s closet. Chanel, Burberry Prorsum and Christian Dior seem to agree with us because they all included it in their resort collections.

You can find our take on the trend with The Belle Blouse and The Louise Blouse
