Socks are a thing, especially sport socks. For next Resort season, the lowly tube sock is elevated with engineered details like sheer insets, jacquarded logos and fresh color. Stripes can be horizontal or vertical, placed allover or just at top cuff. While some designers show the socks with sneakers, they look newest when incongruously styled with ladylike pumps or punk-flavored pointy flats.

Ruching is the new ruffle. Resort 2019 collections are full of these softly dimensional details, used for dresses, skirts, sweaters — and even pant legs. Horizontal placements gently suggest a waist on roomy dresses. Some ruchings are asymmetrical, or are adjustable with strings ties for customizable effects.

The trench coat, like a motorcycle jacket or a pair of jeans, is one of those basics that can be endlessly reinvented while still maintaining its design integrity. For next Resort, newness comes from sleeveless versions, color or fabric-blocking, cape-like slits for arms or puff-shouldered sleeves with channel-elastic cuffs. Fabrics include rustic linens, smooth cottons, lightweight corduroy and flat-quilted nylon. Novel touches can be as splashy as floral-appliquéd shoulders or as subtle as a single red button.
