As deep as our love for runway collections goes, when it comes to real-life application, it can get a tad tricky pulling off items styled on catwalk models. Sheer gowns and sky-high heels aren’t exactly wearable in day-to-day life. That’s why when pre-fall and resort shows roll around, we’re eager to check out not only the new assortment of clothes for these in-between seasons, but also the way they’re styled. And though the Resort 17 pieces won’t be available to buy until later this year (usually around November), we can still embrace the spirit of the collections by testing out new outfit combinations inspired by them. See below for 16 stylish formulas you can try now!
