Resort 2007 Runway Collections
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
In Oscar de la Renta's resort collection, many of his dresses really had a Southern belle flair, like from a Coming- Out party! Another trend in the dresses and really all of the clothes, was to add definition to the waist and to accent the shoulders for a sexy but demure look. He also expiremented with fun prints like wispy flowers and polka dots which I loved. The black and white dress really looks like something Jessica Simpson would wear, for some reason.
Another staple in the Oscar de la Renta Resort runway was the classic trench with a spin on it. For example to accent the trench coat with big gold buttons and pockets for a military-style effect. Or, to play with accessories such as a huge straw hat and gold bag; or huge Jackie-O sunglasses and chunky jewelry. Pairing a shorter trench with bermudas and heels is another way to adapt the winter-y coat to your summer wardrobe.
The biggest trend of all in the Oscar de la Renta Resort 2007 runway, though, was definetely the waist defining dresses. Wether defined by a cinched-at-the-waist belt or just by the structure of the dress alone they looked fabulous! All of the dresses had a vintage look as well, as it had all of these accents such as ruffles or lace that made them feel one-of-a-kind.
Lamé, lamé, lamé!!! That's what what the Resort 2007 Dior runway was screaming in almost all of it's pieces. The clothing really looked balanced, with classic pieces that had a rocker spin on them such as glittery sequins or shiny lamé. My favorite of all the outfits was definetely the one with the seafoam colored fur jacket and gold ruched cocktail dress. The other outfit is also pretty gorgeous, with lamé drainpipes and a champagne sateen top.
White hot bags really made an impression in all of the Spring/Summer runways basically because they match with everything in your wardrobe this time around in the year. I love how the bags featured in the Dior runways translate into real life, cute but practical. The only thing is you have to be careful not to dirty it, which is really annoying but that won't stop me from buying one! Plus: the shimmer on the clutch is adorable!
Light-weight trenches dotted in almost all runways this season, but Dior's take on them was my favorite. I loved that they had a sheen to them, making them look really luxurious. They accentuated the trenches really nicely, too, like pairing the python skirt underneath the shiny beige/gold. Or, like the gold sheen on the rustic brown coat with a brown bag to match.
The biggest trend of the Resort 2007 Dior runway,though, was definetely the edgy short bobs on all of the models!
