Resort collections always seem tailor-made for sultry days under the Miami sun, with their faithful inclusion of a fabulous caftan here, a bold bikini there, but this year’s resort crop had us envisioning designers congregating en masse at Soho Beach House to lay out their game plan for the season. Case in point: the dominance of neon as an acrossthe- board trend, from bold brights at Diane von Furstenberg to the luscious pinks and turquoise tones seen at Versace, Miu Miu, and points beyond. Not even white brings out the bronzed glory of tanned skin the way neon works its magic, so opt for one simple accessories strategy during this brilliant, balmy month: Go for the glow.
