The feminine silhouettes and overall prettiness of Temperley has been gaining in popularity since the Middleton sisters — Kate and Pippa — regularly choose the designer. Since collection prices can inch quite high, Temperley's contemporary collection, Alice by Temperley, is the equally feminine but just-a-little-bit-easier line we turn to when we want something special. The resort collection is filled with vacation-worthy dresses — embroidery, lace, and ruffles dominate, but never in a way that harkens back to your childhood days.

Resort 2012 continues with an emphasis on colorblocking, tons of color — notably pink and yellow, plenty of vacation-ready dresses, and fresh takes on floral prints. Our favorites from this latest showing of resort collections? Givenchy with its futuristic florals; Celine for its completely modern approach to menswear, subtle femininity, and freshness; Preen's pretty colorblocking; and the exotic, totally pretty prints from Tory Burch and Suno.

Resort week is well underway, and we have to say, we love what we're seeing. The sporty themes, from Jason Wu's surfer femme details and Michael Kors power surfer, to Nicolas Ghesquière's varsity jackets and visors, are making us feel the need to get in shape. Wild prints — wallpaper chic at Marc Jacobs, gypsy-inspired patterns at Thakoon, and ikat at Derek Lam — lend a bold vibe to the season that has become increasingly important.

We love Resort collections: the gorgeous gowns, bright colors, and chic separates all serve as inspiration for our Summer 'fits right now, and turn into lusts later into the year when they actually come available in stores. So far, the collections shown from the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Jenni Kayne, and McQ to name a few, have taught us a lesson in vibrant hues, warm weather layering, and effortless glamour.
