Resort 2012 Trend: Black & White

Classic BLACK & WHITE can never be wrong. Designers put a fun, modern spin on this timeless color combo. Alice + Olivia, Versace, and 3.1 Philip Lim created some of my favorite BLACK & WHITE outfits! The Versace dress and almost all of the Alice + Olivia collection managed to combine this trend with another – NEON!

This outfit from 3.1 Philip Lim followed the popular black and white trend for Resort 2012.

Resort 2012 Trend: Neon

NEON was another fun Resort 2012 trend. From full on neon outfits to pops of color paired with neutrals, neon was all over the runways! Lots of fuschia, yellow, bright blue and lime green brightened up traditional white lace and khaki-filled resort collections. I think my favorite is the lime green dress by Elie Saab.

The Elie Saab Resort 2012 collection included a neon dress, one of the Resort 2012 trends.

Resort 2012 Trend: Lace

Another favorite Resort 2012 trend was LACE.  The BCBG and McQueen are great for summer parties, but you can definitely pull off the Behnaz Sarafpour at the office!

One trend for Resort 2012 was white lace, like this BCBG Max Azria dress.

Resort 2012 Trend: Red

Over 200 designers presented resort collections this year, and they did not disappoint! One of my favorite trends was bright red. Most were sleek and structured, like the Elie Saab and Valentino pictured below. Those are perfect choices for a cocktail party, dinner, or night out on the town in whatever glamorous destination you find yourself this summer. The more bohemian BCBG Max Azria dress is great for day or night at a beach bar or pool party.

One of the top Resort 2012 trends was red, like this Elie Saab Resort 2012 dress.
