Resort has the longest shelf life of any season, which means that designers are making sure that it's all things to all people. Fur coats can be found in the same collections as bikinis, because why not? Accessibility to every type of shopping habit is paramount.

Among the Resort 2018 collections, longstanding trends like bomber jackets, shoulders and track suits are alive and well. But what about the rest? Take a look at what you'll be seeing in stores starting November.

Bell Bottoms

(L-R): Beaufille, Ellery, Khaite, Adeam and Cushnie et Ochs.

Is the skinny gene craze finally dying out? If the resort collections are anything to go by, then yes, it most certainly is. The flares of the last resort season have ballooned to full-blown bell bottoms.

Colorblocking

(L-R): Versace, Tabula Rasa, Thom Browne, Rosetta Getty and Delpozo.

Colorblocking is the laziest and therefore, possibly most efficient way to add color into your wardrobe. This season, there are plenty of brights from which to choose.

Décolletage

(L-R): Giorgio Armani, Palmer Harding, Tanya Taylor, Yigal Azrouel and Camilla and Marc.

Let's call this one the inevitable offshoot of the prominent shoulder-baring trend. It's time to leave a few of those buttons unbuttoned.

Frayed Denim

(L-R): Karen Walker, Sonia Rykiel, See by Chloe, Public School and Shaina Mote.

More than ever, denim is becoming a mainstay in designer collections. The casual fabric is often bedazzled, embroidered and distressed, but the most popular iteration for resort was a simple frayed edge.

Monochrome

(L-R): Stella McCartney, Nili Lotan, Samuji, Adam Lippes and Red Valentino.

Another play on color, monochromatic dressing keeps things simple if one color is all you want to commit to.

Citrus Colors

Your favorite citrus fruits are the biggest colors of the season by far, with an honorable mention to pink. Clementine, lemon, tangerine — these are not for the faint of heart.

Orange

(L-R): Emilia Wickstead, Edun, Oscar de la Renta, Adeam and Victoria Beckham.

Yellow

Ruching

This classic gathering technique is adding a bit of interest to every piece, whether used sparingly or over the full garment.

Statement Socks

(L-R): Prada, Valentino, Antonio Marras, Gucci and Thom Browne.

Designers are so confident that you will love the statement socks available for resort that they're pretty sure you'll even want to wear them with sandals. And why cover them up?

Racing Stripes

(L-R): Robert Rodriguez, Monse, Louis Vuitton, MSGM and 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Eye-catching racing stripes are running up the legs of just about any trouser or pant.

Tropical Prints

(L-R): Etro, Michael Kors Collection, Pringle of Scotland, Alberta Ferretti and Erdem.

The tropical print has become less a mainstay of the resort collections with the ever-evolving definition of "resort," but you will not be able to miss it in 2018.

Vertical Stripes

(L-R): Rosie Assoulin, Alice + Olivia, Tibi, Veronica Beard and Nicole Miller.

The stripe is having a moment, none more than the vertical stripe — see: racing stripes, above — and your next suit may be the latest outfit to follow this trend.
