From Lobster Laden Lookbooks to Fluorescent Tribal Beachwear

 - Jul 19, 2012
With cruise season wrapping up, there are some clear patterns emerging in these eye-catching Resort 2013 collections. Resort or cruise collections are traditionally targeted to affluent customers who will likely be spending their Christmas holidays in warm-weather locales.

There is certainly no shortage of neon accessories and fluorescent frocks this season, as designers opt for saturated hues to add punch in their lookbooks. Lively patterns remain another strong feature in the various Resort 2013 collections, as fashion houses pair offbeat motifs and create clash-happy ensembles. Primed peplums and androgynous pantsuits were also spotted on countless runways, providing customers alternatives to typical feminine silhouettes.

As the Resort 2013 collections move off the runway and prepare to hit stores, fashionistas can look forward to snagging up some statement-setting ensembles.
