Six designers each conveying six different takes on resort 2015 ready-to-wear, that in-between/transitional season. Asymmetry elements at Balenciaga, work-to-travel pieces at By Malene Birger, ultraluxe sporty-ness meets stylish athleticism at Fendi. "Comfortable seduction" at Donna Karan, with an elevated take on pajama dressing in pale and pretty pieces. Maiyet covered a variety of things to "pack" for those warm weather destination, whether your travels are more business than pleasure or just the opposite. Zimmerman's resort 2015 collection shows just how the brand has  transcended far beyond swimwear to a collection that's wearable high-fashion, inspired by Bali, but staying true to their touch of whimsy, beach aesthetic, these are not just sitting pretty at the beach type of clothes, these are made for the "stylish traveler" that dreams of a sun soaked getaway.

Botanicals, denim and snake skin at Gucci, and everybody's favorite French chic brought the "Marant Magic" to deliver a relaxed look of easy separates with a Parisian state of mind. Wardrobe building at Louis Vuitton, and echos of the 60's at Marni, and destination dressing at Michael Kors who definitely cover a lot of ground for work as well as play. Enjoy and Be Inspired!

I love the resort fashion season, mostly because it's a season of travel inspired ensembles, and these clothes are definitely made for traveling to a sun soaked getaway. There's a free-spiritedness that you just don't get with the fall for spring collections. 

My top 8 favorites of resort 2015 gave me something old and something new to covert; retro-fab seventies, rich textures and prints, lace and embroidery, "the new stripe", and the standout this season nouveau bohemian. A chic leisurely vibe with A-line midi skirts, florals and stripes were updated, silhouettes are casual, clean and structured although I prefer my resort fashions with a touch a la boheme, and a sprinkle of seventies inspiration but even Ms. boheme as to grow up and A-line midi skirts, florals and stripes and those dip-dyed trench coats at Burberry make the transition from boho chic to jet-setter all the more lust-worthy but I still appreciate the "Island hoping artistic soul" and a "rolling gathers no moss kind of ethos. Enjoy and Be Inspired!
