Generally, resort collections are directed primarily toward the jet-set crowd that vacations in St. Bart's, Mustique, [insert fabulous tropical destination here] in January.
This resort season, the clothes look like they're for a woman who's going straight to bed. No, not straight to the bedroom - I'm not talking about sexy lingerie-inspired looks - but straight to bed. As in, to sleep. In decidedly un-sexy pajamas.
