Rebecca Minkoff Resort 2013 collection was inspired by the designer's upbringing in San Diego's surf culture.

Minkoff is known for her detailed and dramatic accessories, but now she is acquiring attention for her fashions as well.The Resort 2013 looks have elaborate designs, full of pizazz and powerful patterns. Minkoff decided on the color palette and general feel of the collection by revisiting her youth and channeling her surf and skate culture nostalgia into a refined mix of clothing and accessories.

Must-have pieces include Minkoff's coveted cheetah prints, sun-bleached pants, pastel printed minis and fringed jacquard dresses. Minkoff killed it with the accessories with the introduction of bangles and the return of her super chic leather bags.

The Rebecca Minkoff Resort 2013 collection is beyond gorgeous; her looks are effortless and the sentiment attached to the creations really hits home.
