11 STYLING TRICKS WE PICKED UP AT THE RESORT SHOWS

From Chanel in Cuba to Gucci at Westminster Abbey, this season of resort collections has been a far reaching one. Due to hit stores just before the spring 2017 collections, the clothes themselves are still a way off, but the styling tips we picked up can be put to use immediately. Here are 11 of the best…

Valentino

41-valentino-resort-17Layer a utility shirt over a crisp white one, like a jacket.

Chanel

CHANEL_RES17_Make the graphic retro tee your hero piece for the season. Knot over diaphanous maxi skirts and adorn with sequin brooches; or wear with a neat skirt suit to make the look young and fresh.

Oscar de la Renta

Bottega Veneta

Rag And Bone

Rebecca Taylor

Fendi
