Island ease comes alive in the ease and fluidity of the collection. Movement plays out in relaxed, elegant silhouettes, whether in the lightness of hostess dresses or the long lines of wide-legged pants. Cascading ruffles and bell sleeves highlight the beautifully voluminous accents, juxtaposed with the wrap dresses and waist-emphasizing belts. For a slightly tomboyish vibe, the breezy femininity grows subdued from being balanced out with the laidback attitude of sporty track pants and raffia tweed suits.
Of course, a resort style isn’t quite complete without the breezy island-life palette of island sky blues and sunset hues, with a gorgeous burgundy and white punctuated by the starkness of black and ivory.

The bohemian-inspired fabrics effervesce from an eclectic range of pleated crinkle chiffon and nubby knit bouclé, with variations on the classic stripe á la tie-dyed or crochet pieces in graphic pieces. A subtle shine peeks from the rhinestone stripe border, like in a bold shimmer across a sequined surface.
“Resort 2017 takes us back to Round Hill, Jamaica, in its heyday and plays on the spirit of island living,” said Tory Burch. “We balance relaxed with refined, taking inspiration from Lauryn Hill, whose style epitomizes cool elegance. There’s an emphasis on texture (pleating, fringe, raffia, jacquard, crochet), graphic stripes (engineered, bias-cut and tie-dye) as well as subtel volume – seen in the ruffled sleeves and wrap dresses. Accessories mirror the modd and feature tassels, pom-poms, feathers and shells.”
