This year’s 2012 Resort Collections was a sight to behold with hints of sultry, playful and elegance in every collection. I’m excited to see that bright bold colors will still be in style for 2012, and all of the different looks seemed to lean towards more relaxing and loose fitted clothing which I think is perfect for the summer, especially while on a resort! I created six image collages below showing the same inspired looks from different designers which include Sachin + Babi, Monique Lhuillier, Theyskens’ Theory, The Row, Preen, Acne, Badgley Mischka, Givency, Douglas Hannant, BCBG Max Azria, Rebecca Minkoff, Balenciaga.

Some of us aren’t able to afford the beautifully chic clothing on the catwalk, but we can definitely use it as inspiration to create our own. Since DIY’s are the thing this year too, why not revamp your t-shirts with lace by adding simple lace accents to clothing or even accessories. Check out this blog for more revamping inspiration!
