Yes, yes I know that Spring 2013 Show is still going. Everyone seem wants to be as up-to-date as possible, posting Spring 2013 Shows in her blog. But, why so hurry? This is still September, dude, relax. And we sometimes forget that many good things come from Resort Show - many trends from Resort are being repeated in Spring show. For me, Resort is like the prequel of Spring Show - or a teaser you can say. So, this post is dedicated to the almost-forgotten Resort 2013 Shows. I have categorized some of the trend and highlights that you certainly don't want to miss. Plus, many of Resort shows are very wearable that you can make them as your daily outfit inspiration! Behold, these are the trends & highlights:

1) LITTLE PATTERN DRESS
Keep your Little Black/White Dress in your closet for a while and give way to Little Pattern Dress! And remember, these are not ordinary one: just bring out the boldest, the brightest, and the quirkiest pattern - and stand out from the crowd.

2) 50 SHADE OF MINT
While the world is shaken by this erotic novel (50 Shades of Gray), the fashion world is ruled by one of the most talked-about color: Mint - to be precise, a pastel mint. And there are many shades of mint - well it's not 50 of course.

3) AS SIMPLE AS THAT
Wake up late and don't have time to think what to wear? Wear a white top & black pants: as simple as that. Instant chic - and play it safe.

4) THE (black &)WHITE STRIPES
Still in the black-white mood, now it's time to bring your b/w stripes outfit back on track. The bigger the better. And don't wear a top-to-toe b/w stripes if you don't want to looked like a prisoner.

5) THE RISE OF THE NEO-TRIBAL
Tribal pattern is back with its new form, so I called it Neo-Tribal. It's time to emphasize ethnicity and the more vivid the color, the better!

6) MODERN & SLEEK CITY LADY
Wearing tees/shirt never been this cool. It's about wearing a tees/shirt + skirt in a modernist approach that somehow create a sleek & urban women - I found it hard to describe this style, but you know what I am talking about right? Oh, add a simple/minimalistic sandal heel/pointy heels to complete the style.

7) THE PRIM, THE PROPER, AND THE PRETTY
Who says that a prim & proper style is such a boredom? Who says that being a "good girl" is lame? Let's break that myth & show to the world that a prim, proper, & "good girl" style isn't lame at all. How? By wearing a trimmed-shirt mixed with either a pleats or A-line skirt. And the skirts aren't mini. An instant lady like!
