This year London based designer Roksanda Ilincic showed a resort collection with a dark, dramatic edge. The Central Saint Martins graduate, who recently announced she would collaborate with British high street retailer Whistles, told WWD she wanted her resort collection to "be approachable in terms of fabric" but the results are anything but everyday. Ilincic is known for her cocktail dresses and this season they stand out more than ever--with 3-D draping and mesh details.
Now that summer clothing is going on sale and pre-fall clothing is hitting shelves, it's a great time to start thinking about purchasing midseason pieces. Midseason pieces are those that are versatile and can be worn during both seasons. A classic black and white stripe jacket, for instance, will keep you warm on a cool summer evening while it also makes a fine staple in a fall wardrobe. Our favorites, all under $200, above.
