Since we last checked in the with the Resort show schedule there have been a host of seriously chic collections unveiled by some of the biggest names in the business. From Alexander Wang’s first Resort collection for Balenciaga to Phillip Lim’s super cool collection, there has been plenty to tantalize our fashion fancies. We can also add to the trends which we have so far predicted to give you a sneak peek into what you will be wearing come next Spring.
1.The Mid-Riff Rules
If you were hoping the current trend for belly baring was going to go away, you will be sadly disappointed. With designers from hip brands like Altuzarra to more traditionally sexy labels like Versace keeping the midriff going strong, it's definitely not time to pack away that Swiss Ball yet.

2.Monochrome Isn’t Going Anywhere
If you have invested in a host of black and white classics this summer, you will be pleased to hear that the simple monochrome look is still rocking the runways for Resort 2014. Some designers like Erdem have experimented with the look combining navy and cream instead of the classic typical black and white which has been seen at Balenciaga, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Bottega Veneta.

3. Graphic Patchwork
Offering a clean and architectural look, Resort’s graphic patchwork is catnip to fashion minimalists looking for a new way to express their style. Check out both Phillip Lim and Bottega Veneta for the look.

4. Sheerly There
This season’s sheers are eminently wearable. Rather than see-thru chiffons which aren’t exactly office-appropriate designers have goon for thicker lace and crochets with both patterns. When worn with a bandeau and big pants or minis these frocks are as modest as transparent gets.

5. Emerald City
When Pantone announced that their prediction that emerald green would be the next big colour trend for 2013, we were kind of sceptical. Without the sunniness of yellow or prettiness of pink, we weren’t sure it would catch on, Designers however, have more confidence in the jewel colour and have sent out models in several head to toe emerald looks. From gorgeous coats to fancy frocks, it’s enough to make you green with envy.
