Resortwear 2017 Collection Preview Jackie Sussman '17

Ninety miles from Key West, over dazzling and dangerous blue waters and inside a country ripe with a multitude of issues, Chanel had its Resort 2017 show.

Yet Chanel is merely one of many designers to debut their resort-wear shows for the following year. Fendi, Bottega Veneta, M Missoni, Etro; the flowering of collections of chiffon, prints and staple items has only just begun. That's right: New York Fashion Week, nicknamed NYFW, is upon us.

"Another clue about the season to come? Designers might finally be tiring of athleisure." Nicole Phelps, Director of Vogue Runway

Tired of wearing sneakers or comfort clothing? Dying to break out pops of color with a pair of glossy heels? Well, you're in luck. Top trends for this season to come include more structured pieces with flares of A-line and sheath cuts. A great example can be seen in Bottega Veneta's Resort 2017 collection, embedded below (video courtesy of Vogue).

Hawaiian shirts have been shunned for decades due to their lack of both style and so-called "edginess." Like most things, circumstances often change with time. Time to bust out those once-ugly prints and wear them with pride!

Finally, what is more classy than the designer of class itself busting out chiffon, frill lace and fedoras? While Karl Lagerfeld and his workerbees at Chanel are anything but predictable and are within themselves incredibly unique, it would be fashion suicide for the designers displaying their creations in NYFW to not attempt to expand upon the simple but elegant style of the Resort 2017 Chanel collection.

While this information is only a sneak-peek, make sure to see if my predictions were correct as New York Fashion Week for Resort 2017 collections plays out throughout the month.
