The newly arrived resort collections give us a sneak peek into some of spring-summer's hottest trends, including florals and 1920s drop-waist dresses. One of the more wearable looks we've spotted is light blue denim, which is appearing in shirt dresses and other separates at Mulberry (pictured). At Phillip Lim, the designer has created a zip-up parachute dress made from a denim-like fabric, which is actually cotton brushed in blue to lend a textured look. While light blue shades are usually kept for summer, you can make it more winter appropriate by pairing your dress with a warm, patterned scarf or dark tights, or by layering a cool leather jacket or parka on top. If you opt for denim trousers, go for a more formal wide-legged style, which will take you through to next season.


Denim matched with denim can look a bit naff. Instead go for this cross-body style straw bag in a complementary shade of vintage grey-blue from Ralph Lauren (inquiries: 2721 1908).


White matches well with light blue and creates a summery vibe. Try the Triple Row Premiere watch (HK$99,800) from Chanel with its ceramic and steel band that winds around the wrist several times.


Finish your look with a pair of heels in neutral shades such as brown or beige. Go for chunky platforms like Yves Saint Laurent's best-selling Tribute sandals in brown leather (inquiries: 2868 0092).
