You saw the SS18 shows, and now it feels like you’ve been waiting forever… Well, Merry Christmas, that wait is over! Thanks to our latest drop of Resort collections, next season’s biggest trends are within your grasp: future-proof your wardrobe with these 5 pieces.
The double-duty trench
Why choose one great coat when you can wear two? Layered coats are in for spring and luckily, this sleeveless piece by Derek Lam is just made for doubling up. Pair with a denim jacket for Balenciaga vibes.

The bustier is to SS18 what the corset was to SS17: absolutely everywhere. Liberate yours from your lingerie drawer and layer it over an oversized shirt or voluminous dress. Or go bare, if you dare.

The major blazer
Fix up, look sharp. A smart blazer has the power to help you get ahead at work – and ahead on next season’s trends, too. It’ll dress up everything from slouchy trousers to pleated skirts.

The new denim
If early noughties denim conjures up images of ‘Justney’, think again. Dark, Y2K denim is having a major resurgence for SS18, especially when worn with a matching jacket.

The lavender dress
Put it down to the promise of sunnier days, but ice-cream hues always seem to come back around for spring. But what’s different about this year’s offering? Park the millennial pink, it’s all about lavender now.
