IT’S ALL ESSENTIAL Enjoy everlasting summer with resort fashion in 2017, writes Caitlyn Spanner. RESORTWEAR WAS RECENTLY introduced to the fashion calendar as a pre-collection to the traditional two seasons of summer and winter. As a result, we’re now seeing collections all year round to meet consumer demand. Which means more choice for everyone! So what exactly is resort fashion? Well, think of it as those special items you’d pack for a resort holiday; swimwear, beach cover-ups and hats. Think lightweight and breathable fabrics including linen, beautiful textures such as straw and crochet, and fun, holiday-inspired shapes in the form of jewellery, sunglasses and bags. Play with primary colours and classic shapes for a sophisticated take on beachwear. The best thing about living in Australia is that it’s acceptable to wear resort fashion all year long! Here are the essentials to keep you inspired for a breezy 2017.
