Traipsing along a beautiful beachy cliff in a beautiful white maxi dress while the sun is shining is exactly what I'm doing right now…in my dreams.  Alas, I'm stuck in a winter wonderland for the foreseeable future. But that doesn't mean I can't work some of resorts hottest trends into my wardrobe, long before summer arrives.  Take a look at how I will be incorporating a few of my favorite pieces from our 2016 Resort Picks, into my winter wear.  

I love winter white. I've never lived by the no white after Labor day rule. On vacation, the flowy white top with shorts and sandals is perfect for site-seeing or going to lunch.  Back at home, throw on a sweater and some furry boots and you're set to brave the cold.  The reversible silver tote and shades work well no matter what the weather.

I pinned this inspiration photo a few years ago and I'm still OBSESSED. I love the juxtaposition of dainty white lace with the edgier black opaque tights, leather jacket and boots. This could even work well with a black sweater or black blazer.  On vacation, this easy lace cotton dress is can be dressed up with a pretty floral scarf, black crossbody purse and black flats for dinner on the town.  On the right, is a version of my inspiration image on how to rock the same lace dress on a cold dreary day in Detroit.

Many people are a little shy when it comes to printed pants. These Marc Cain Neoprene Trousers are the perfect pair to get over your fear with!  Since the print is in soft and neutral tones anyone can carry it off.  On vacation, pair it with a pretty white top, tank or tee. At home, put on a classic denim shirt with a scarf and booties and you have a great business casual outfit on a Friday or for brunching with the girls on the weekend.
