Most Wearable Trends From the Resort 2013 Collections

This year's Resort 2013 collections did anything but disappoint- from setting new trends to building on trends from last season, the runways were packed with fresh & wearable designs. However, some more wearable than others. This year these were the 7 designers whose collections proved decadently chic, but most importantly- wearable for the everyday woman in my opinion.



Tibi was one of my absolute favorite collections this year. The neon trend was a huge hit in this collection, and popped phenomenally against a neutral background. The fabulously simple lines, sporty style and stark contrast made this one of the most wearable collections.


Oscar de la Renta

My love obsession with Oscar de la Renta has no boundaries and this collection continued to feed my addiction. With his perfect mix of sporty essentials and feminine lace, this show took librarian chic to a whole new level. It doesn't hurt that I'm a huge fan of the baseball tee and this sparkly version is to die for and killer when paired with an unexpected midi skirt. I also love how the cobalt stands out from under the traditional black lace- so easy to copy, yet completely chic.

Sonia Rykiel

Print mixing? Yes please! This was an obvious pick for me, seeing as how I'm obsessed with mixing patterns. This Russian fashionista really knows edge. It's hard to pick what I am loving most about this particular collection- from the pop of color in the sandals and jewelry to the unique prints in similar hues, I'd have to say I'm loving it all. Classic pieces like an a-line skirt and structured handbags anchor the eccentric prints and make them super edgy, yet appropriate for the office at the same time.

Alice + Olivia

Just like last year, I'm still in love with Stacey Bendet Eisner's designs. Eisner, however, took a huge turn in her resort collections from last year's parade of brilliantly fun hues and is back this summer with more muted colors, but with the same playful edge. Neons stand out beautifully against black, white, periwinkle, navy, gray and blue; making this collection creative and completely wearable for just about anyone. 
This particular look is one that I would love to copy. I could just see last fall's varsity jacket pairing wonderfully with some neon shorts and ankle strap flats for a look that'll take you from Saturday  errands to a night on the town.

Max Osterweis got it right with his resort collection with bright and intricate print mixing! His ethnic-reminiscent pattern mixes is completely on-point this summer and I couldn't find one outfit from this collection that I wouldn't wear! He makes mixing patterns look effortlessly chic. I'm especially loving the anoraks and pleated minis!

Prabal Gurung

This Asian-inspired collection stays true to blue, red/orange, and black/white- making it streamlined with a futuristic nautical feel. The unexpected color blocking punches up classic pieces, while the peplum and floral printed pants are to die for. Who wouldn't want to add some oomph to update classic pieces?



Not having been on my radar before, Carven surprised me with these beautifully tailored modern-prep pieces! I'm swooning over the collared mini-dresses and structured blazers in fun colors like coral and cobalt blue. Paired with silky scarf pants, these classic pieces got an instant style update for summer. How fun are those orange strappy heels? These pieces make me excited for fall (weird, right?) and are perfect for the transitional period after summer.
