Mix it up Resortwear

Mother Nature has been a tease with the warm weather so far this season, but it hasn’t stopped us from dreaming up getaways. The first thing in our suitcase (after a Karla Colletto suit, of course)? A piece from our Knit Resortwear collection. It’s everything you’d want on a vacation: comfort, style, and versatility. Our Knit Resortwear is made from matt jersey fabric that drapes beautifully and doesn’t wrinkle. The silhouettes are simple in black and navy, begging to be dressed up with sandals or sunnies–the possibilities are endless. What will you do to make these look “you”? Here are a few outfits to inspire you, wherever you may be headed this Spring/Summer.

The journey of Cruise 2014’s wanderlust It-girl continues with the Early Cruise 2015 Swim Collection by Karla Colletto. One minute she’s off to the races in this season’s classic, but vibrant palette. The next minute she’s a master of disguise in deep, mysterious hues. Who can keep up?

We’ve introduced a few new elements to give Cruise 2014 styles a fresh look just in time for spring! For example, the Contrast group now sports Pinstripe accents, while Trapunto is a new play on several classic Karla bestsellers combined. What else could be more perfect for our fearless female on the lam than our all-new Camo group? A second new group, Punchout, combines bold colors and laser-cut perforated details for a look that is all heroine. Enjoy this season’s many sporty racers and high-necks with comfortable and flattering fit for an active lifestyle.

The Early Cruise 2015 Swim Collection by Karla Colletto is available now through July. View the entire collection here and let the games begin.

Flora, Positive/Negative, and Scuba styles are the perfect balance of sporty-chic and sexy It-girl with a touch of Wonderland to boot. Visit our collection pages to view all styles in each of these fab groups!
