Burberry Resort 2014 was meant for the "girl next door," but it seems Christopher Bailey's girl next door is a much sexier kind of neighbor. The collection mixed the pillars of a warm-weather wardrobe (sheerness, lightness, and lots of cutouts) with body-con silhouettes and tight pencil skirts — a nod to his Fall 2013 collection, it appears.
Standout versions of Bailey's pencil skirt came covered in stretchy, pastel-hued lace, and will later have removable lining added, in case you're not ready to reveal all. Looks were layered with the brand's iconic trench coats, each punctuated with glass bead embellishments, and finished with a colourful foldover clutch and white peep-toe wedge booties.
Eveningwear made an equally loud splash; and for Bailey, the outward likeability of these black and white gowns should be reason enough to expect even more eveningwear in his Spring and Fall collections.
