Oscar de la Renta’s Resort 2014 collection is as elegant and elaborate as usual. The floral embellishments and beautiful prints make the collection feminine and red carpet-worthy. Though it’s not as bright as the last year’s resort line, it’s still very much in the designer’s style.
This year there was no resort fashion show though. The collection was presented for a small group of journalists and we get to see the outfits in a beautiful lookbook.
The collection includes beautiful gowns, elegant peplum dresses and trouser ensembles, tweed creations and some cocktail frocks. The silhouettes vary from A-line dresses to tulip skirts; classic pleated trousers are paired with assymetric peplum tops.

The color palette still includes some bright colors like pink, lime green, and royal blue but there are more neutral and pastel colors as well as darker shades. Embroidery varies from printed to dimensional flowers, sequins, lace appliques and drapery.
There are some great classic outfits in the lookbook that would fit for the office as well. They are more elaborate yet still classy. Cocktail dresses and gowns are decorated with lace, sheer fabric layers, and floral prints.
Accessories always play a big role in Oscar de la Renta’s collections. Here we see statement necklaces, bracelets, and oversized flower-shaped earrings. They often match with the outfits making for an impeccable yet flashy look.
The shoes are pointed but vary greatly in color and prints. The colors are neutral and bright, there are also models with bright or contrasting piping. There is also a model with net-like detail that almost makes it an ankle bootie.
This is a great collection full of understated elegance and feminine glamour. What do you think?
