Resort 2013 Trends: Vintage Inspired

Looking to past decades for inspiration, Resort 2013 incorporated prints, details and cuts reminiscent of midcentury style. Go from runway to retro with these vintage inspired pieces.

Polka Dots

Go retro in polka dots in this Madewell block dot shirt. This tuxedo-inspired blouse showcases a fold-over collar and exaggerated shirttail hem.


An A-line miniskirt by Herve Leger is a sweet take on the designers’ signature sexy looks. This blush skirt is accented with a scalloped trim along the seams.

Grids & Graphs

Create a 60s vibe with a gathered front dress by Thakoon. A watercolor wash, lattice pattern and panel of pleats lend elegant movement.


Take on a cool hit of contrast in a zigzag sweater by Kelly Wearstler. Knit with a centered zigzag, a soft V-neck and ¾ sleeves complete the piece.


Express your flower power in a floral halter dress by Alice + Olivia. Acid-bright flowers add a graphic pop as undone pleats create a flowing soft texture across the bodice.

Leather for all Weather

Cast clean lines in A-line leather shorts by 3.1 Phillip Lim. These high-waisted shorts offer welt pockets and subtle seams for a tailored finish.

Sweetheart Necklines

Put a feminine twist on a sexy classic in a strapless dress by Moschino. A sweetheart neckline, drifting ruffles and delicate pleats add ladylike touches.

Slouchy Trousers

Create a statuesque profile in a pair of wide leg pants by Zac Posen. Pintucks lend sweeping movement through the legs while a high waist adds a retro touch.


Go mod in a clean and tailored, red crepe dress by Michael Kors. Ladylike details include cap sleeves, boat neckline and a belt to accentuate the waist.


Bring an exotic edge to your resort look in an Equipment leopard silk blouse. A loosely fitted silhouette is complemented by a centered box pleat and buttoned cuff sleeves.
