Milly Resort 2015
Michelle Smith debuted a sexily cool collection for Resort this season, and it’s bound to have clients clamoring for key pieces like a pair of high-waisted wide leg elongating trousers, see-through pencil and flare skirts, and an array of crop tops in solids and colorful prints. Some of the crop tops came paired with high-waisted, pleated shorts, which has proven to be an ongoing trend for Resort. Shirt dresses were styled unbuttoned and worn over outfits like a light trench or jacket, fitting for a breezy evening on a warm weather getaway.
Of course, there were the requisite signature flirty dresses like a white almost sheer shirt dress with a flared skirt in a blue floral print. It was the kind of piece that would be just perfect for the demure Uptown girl or the Southern belle, but here it was paired with black menswear inspired loafers for a slightly edgier message. A black strapless jumpsuit with culotte-style legs were slit up the side, shirt bolero jackets came in sheer royal blues and black, and a graphic tight sheer pencil skirt revealed a pair of high-waisted underpinnings. It was retro mixed with a sense of classic, timeless style that will certainly appeal to a wide range of Milly’s clients.
