Calf grazing pencil skirts, covered in paillettes and fringe. Paper thin sweaters with sayings inspired by vintage book covers. Dip dyed, ombré trench coats. Everything about Christopher Bailey‘s resort collection feels youthful, feminine and fresh . . . rain or shine. I mean, I don’t think I ever needed a pencil skirt as badly as I do now! And though the pieces from the collection is probably more than some of our pocketbooks can bare, at least you can walk away with a few styling points come fall.
