Vera Wang 2012 Resort Collection Works for Casual Bridesmaids Dresses

Gossip Girl star Leighton Mester as the new face of Vera Wang. Here in the designer's Resort Collection.

We’ve come to known Vera Wang for her beautiful and stunning wedding dresses. With her bridal collection still the main focus, the designer has also extended her line to lifestyle, home, ready to wear and her newest addition, her resort collection. A resort collection is shown during the Christmas holiday season and into January for the many people who go away to sunny locations for vacations during the winter season. As with any designer, Vera Wang still tries to put her mark on every collection but she also wants every part of her brand to have individuality and identity.

Her resort collection is a city girl casual. There are ruffled tops and skirts but the real standout are the reinvented polka dot dresses that can be worn as bridesmaids’ dresses. High waisted jackets and lots of separates that you can mix and match. The collection very much reflects the designer’s New Yorker tastes.

What we love about all her collections is that Ms. Wang is always thinking of the bride before, during and after her wedding. She has designed her whole brand around it. You will only wear your wedding gown once but these are the type of clothes that you can and will wear over and over again.

Are resort collections appealing to you or are they just for the jetsetter types with winter hideaways in Miami?
