The Resort 2015 Trends To Wear Now
Resort may not be hitting stores until late fall, but the collections were filled with trends that you can, and should, start wearing now. Take for example the boxy jackets shown at Louis Vuitton and Phillip Lim, or the omnipresence of smile-inducing yellow. Here is our guide to the trends that will be everywhere come fall, so that you can get a very stylish head start.

Ranging from lemon to ochre, yellow has been popping up everywhere for Resort. Find a shade that suits you and pick a piece in a classic style to add a little sun to your wardrobe.

Sweet blooms have been replaced by contrasting, mismatched florals. Choose an ensemble that juxtaposes different sizes and color palettes for a modern spin on the favorite.

A combination of geometric and sculptural, this trend cocoons the body without adding bulk. Up the drama by sticking to a black and white palette.
That's A Wrap
Not only is this office appropriate, but the diagonal lines help to lengthen the body.

After seasons of biker jackets and bombers this cropped, boxy silhouette feels fresh. Shown in a variety of hues it can be a statement or a staple depending on your mood.
This snow white version can top a shift in summer air conditioning, or a cream sweater and white jeans when the temperature drops.

Printed outwear has been enjoying a resurgence of late, but these versions are true works of art. Whether you're drawn to the bold primary colors at Alexander McQueen, or the graffiti-inspired scrawls at Burberry, choose a topper that commands attention.
For summer, choose a patterned kimono or summer coat that adds a bold swath of print to a basic outfit. You can switch it for a more heavy duty option come fall.

The new suit rebels against the slouchy silhouettes of seasons past and features a slim leg, open collar, and a sharply belted waist.
Start with a white version that will carry you through the summer months in the office. Come fall you can add a cashmere layer underneath.

The faithful polka dot should not be overlooked. It provides a ladylike polish to every outfit, particularly when rendered in a sheer fabric. Think of it as the chic, older sister to your breton stripes.
