Last month FLARE’s Senior Market & Style Editor, Truc Nguyen, identified the five key Fall trends from the Resort 2014 collections. Resort has surfaced as one of the most important shoppable collections in recent years due to the volume of wearable looks that will be hitting stores in November and last until Spring. But we don’t have to wait for a vacation to take on the trends. You can find ways to wear dressy denim, slouchy trousers, black & white, sheer panels and bare shoulders now, without even lifting a finger to hit Book Now.
Unsure on how to work Resort 2014 trends into your wardrobe? Not a problem—we’ve gathered some suggestions for you below:
