There have been a great buzz in the air about the 2013 resort collections with a high expectancy of the level of fashion hence, making it the number one topic on the lips of every fashionista. Many of the collections have been getting loads of attention and creating quite a stir within the fashion world. There have been an array of bold colours, prints, feminine silhouettes, demure looks and menswear inspiration, catering for both those who will be in the tropics and for those in winter wonderland.
With such a wide diversity of style offered by the designers, there is without a doubt an appeal for everyone and that the designers have left us with our tongues wagging. Those of you new to the fashion scene would may wonder what’s the real need of resort collections. Well my friend, it’s the number 1 fashion saver between the fall and spring seasons providing fashionable clothes during October to February.
Even though I was looking forward to a high level of fashion, I must admit that I was still bowled over by the designs. Such, as to actually pick one designer out of the lot as the best is like me being able to tell you the tally of all the sand on earth, simply impossible. So, I decide to show highlights of some of the best.
