7 New Trends Fashion Girls Already Know About

Resort is one of those in-between seasons that spans several months between November and January. Also known as pre-spring, holiday and cruise collections (confusing, we know) the time period serves as an opportunity for designers to put out pieces fit for winter weather, seasonal soirées and exotic getaways (which is where the term “resort” originated—lightbulb!). This means that offerings run the gamut from cozy outerwear and party attire to beachwear.

What used to be a smaller delivery for many brands is now evolving into one of the most in-demand collections—it’s a time of year when people really shop for themselves and need a variety of looks to take them from their Monday-through-Friday grind to their winter travels.

Despite being months away, we’re swirling with new trends from the recently debuted resort collections which include innovative prints, fresh silhouettes and cool colors. Curious of what’s to come? Ahead, scroll through seven major trends sure to hit big come November. We even hand-picked pieces to shop now if you’re all about staying ahead of the curve. Get inspired.
