    As winter is fast approaching, resort collections are starting to hit stores. You may be scratching your head, asking yourself, Resort? Sounds pretty summery for mid-November, no?

    Well, sort of. Resort collections are those in-between fall and spring launches that originally served as styles for ladies who would jet around during the cold winter months. (Yeah, we wish.) Given that the concept doesn’t fit the norm for the majority of us today, resort can include almost anything that makes sense to shop for before we begin our spring shopping (think: thin sweaters and breezy tops hitting stores the same time as sparkly holiday dresses and even high-waisted bikinis). To further confuse us, resort can be used to call anything from, well, resort and cruise to pre-spring and holiday.

    However perplexing resort (and it’s pre-collection opposite, pre-fall) may be to the average human, these collections are actually sold in stores longer than fall and spring lines are. Also, the resort destination runway shows and intimate presentations, down to the no-frill releases for smaller, contemporary brands, are pretty influential when it comes to what we’ll be wearing come January. Pieces begin to hit stores now, conveniently, when we’re pretty much over shopping for oversized sweaters and already dreaming of warmer days that await us.

    Below, we analyze and reinterpret six of the biggest trends of resort 2017. Click through the gallery below to check it out.
