Trends. Seventies Romance for Resortwear?

July 15, 2008 • Fashion

According to WWD, "Romantic details such as lace, ruffles and pleating are everywhere
throughout resort collections, often with a touch of the Seventies
"  Feminine design with retro flair… that sounds doable, high-end or on a budget! Here are some looks they offer for inspiration.


Collette Dinnigan’s cotton lace dress. Eugenia Kim hat. Leather Island Vintage Classic belt. Calleen
Cordero boots.


Temperley London’s silk dress. Riser Goodwyn belt. Erickson Beamon bracelet.


Guy Baxter’s raw silk vest. Graydn’s cotton and silk blouse. Twelfth
Street by Cynthia Vincent’s cotton satin shorts. Cole Haan booties.

  1. I love this romantic style. lace is fabulous (when worn correctly!) would love if we could exchange links check out my blog if you have a chance 🙂

  2. mobile phone with free gift

    Most people don’t know they can get a valuable free gift with their next mobile phone… all from a name you can trust… Tesco! Don’t go direct to a UK network when free Wii’s, HDTV’s, Laptops, Playstations and much more. All above board and from Tesco!
