Looking at the various designer accessories that are geared toward the 2013 resort collection, we can see one major thing in common: color. Bright, playful hues play an important role in the 2013 accessories resort collection, like what we have seen for summer but with an even more fun colorblocking motif.

Jason Wu

Take Jason Wu for example. When looking through his 2013 resort collection you find bright color displayed along his handbagsincluding the Daphne Shoulder Bag that holds a true blue and orange fashion that is accented with black straps and gold decor.  His Karlie Clutch Box is also vibrant and fun with a bright pink background color with bold jewels accented on the front, giving it the ultimate bedazzled look and feel, that is ideal for any resort collection.

Jason Wu’s shoes are also pretty in pink and full on color such as the Marisa Platform Sandal that is all over pink and super strappy with a funky gem near the toe that gives a mighty statement in each step. He also showcases lots of black and white shoes that are ideal when paired with a whole lot of color that can be included in your wardrobe or your accessories. The Peggy Open Weave Sandal is ideal for an evening out with its all over white with black outline, which would be a great addition to the Karlie Clutch Box.

Reed Krafoff

As far as other accessories go, the Reed Krafoff’s latest khaki trench with tangerine accents is the perfect fall, winter, or spring essential. It’s clean and classic but offers a bit of funky color that is proven to take the resort collection by storm this season. Every woman can enjoy working this ideal jacket in their wardrobe no matter what season because it’s lightweight, comfortable and of course incredibly fashionable.


Givenchy showed off it’s wild side with their latest resort 2013 collection that incorporates paisley prints and geometric designs. And that’s not only for their apparel either. With the accessories line there are tons of sparkle to be seem including the rhinestone encrusted envelope clutch that also has a paisley-print design that allows this bag to really stand out. The contrasting fabric with the bold sparkle really make for an ideal evening clutch that will be sure to turn heads.

Nails are also a huge attribute for Givenchy especially in the accessories department. The open-toe gladiator boot that comes in a high heel is infused with nail-head studs that go along the platform of the shoe. This is sort of what we saw a lot of designers do in the past couple seasons with their glitter and sparkle heels that are traced along the platform with a whole lot of shimmer but this time around it’s a but harder and rough around the edges.

However, when we look at Valentino’s resort collection we see more glitz with their sparkling peep toe sandals with nude insole and strap. Colors here are fresh and bold with the adorable clutches that come in yellow, pink, and light green. These “Rockstud” clutches are not only pretty but they also have a lot of accented studs too that really make these bags pop.

Christine Dior

Besides the ultra feminine frocks we see Christine Dior showcase in the resort collection this season, there are also plenty of fashionable accessories to pair with it. This includes similar colorblocking styles that we have seen previously and with other designers, but the colors are a little more muted and soft rather than bright and severe. Instead, they are very romantic and heavenly with shades in purple and pink, with cream taping and accents.

Along with the bags that Dior offers in this collection, there are also magnificent jewelry pieces that include a rosebud necklace that is fantastic. Coming in several light colors such as pink, purple, and cream, this necklace is absolutely stunning and a true statement piece that can be worn for more than just a resort season. Instead, it can be work throughout the seasons for a special evening out when you truly want to look and feel your best.

Michael Kors

Now onto a man who knows his bags: Michael Kors. The latest resort 2013 accessories collection offers the standard structured handbag that we know and love, with luscious fabrics and materials. The difference is that these delectable bags also have strong accents of color that adds the ideal picture perfect resort handbag. The Black North South Satchel is incredibly sleek with neutral tones and strong lines, but the added yellow-gold hints offer something special.

The other reptile-inspired fabric purse with all over gold color is an ideal addition to any woman’s wardrobe especially when she is heading out on a vacation. This super sleep bag is bold to the eye but still very structured and fashionable for both the office and for play. You can wear this lovely bag with oodles of color for your Caribbean trip or keep it simple with a black and white outfit for when you are heading into work.

The 2013 Resort Accessories Collection Summary

Overall, the 2013 resort accessories collection is about tone, color, and exciting fashions. This season the designers are loving bold hues and fun designs as much as they loved them in the summer months. It makes for a fun and exciting upcoming season especially when we are faced with the dreary colors of winter and the dark on dark tones for fall.
