Trend Takeaways From Today’s Resort Shows

What do good drivers and fashion fiends have in common? The well-honed ability to keep one eye fixed far ahead to see what’s coming down the road. Since we’re fashion fiends (no comment on our driving capabilities), we consider the Resort 2016 shows to be pretty important. Maybe you can’t buy the pieces immediately, but they will be shaping the trends of the upcoming seasons—not to mention staying in stores far longer than traditional Summer and Fall collections. Here, the 5 key takeaways from today.

Prabal Gurung

Gurung's Resort 2016 collection underscored his ability to create powerful-yet-feminine looks without employing garish sexiness, as exemplified by this unique spin on the oversize-sweater-and-pencil-skirt pairing (our office go-to).


The '70s trend isn't going anywhere, but start styling your boho garb with a more rock 'n' roll edge.


The military jacket and the suede biker have had a child. Meet the long, sleek menswear-inspired topper that will be a mainstay in your closet by year's end.


The modernist spin on 1920s leisure attire felt fresh and wearable.

Proenza Schouler
