It might seem like we’re heading into the darkest part of winter, but for fashion enthusiasts (you, me), it’s an exciting time where a new batch of designer collections filter into store. Cutting through the noise of winter coats, sequin dresses and impending Black Friday sales, a host of brands are bringing you an edit of forward-facing trends that are ripe now but are also guaranteed to hold their shape well on into next year. The resort collections are your fast-track into 2018—your head start on the top looks to come.
Originally introduced to the retail market to fulfill the demands of a winter jet-set community, resort collections are now far more varied in their offerings. You’ll find as many cold-weather knits as you will tropics-ready bikinis. That also means these bonus lines can be confusing to shop from, hence our desire to step in, edit things down and present to you the most important new trends. We’ve also included some high-street options so you can get on board without crossing everyone off your Christmas gifting list.
