Taste the Rainbow in wannabe Chris Kane

It's not like we're trying to out-do one another, but one of our favorite things about the insane pace of fashion is being able to spot oncoming trends from miles away as a result of the studying the collections as they come out. Take, for example, the most recent resort collections. Originally conceived as a year round fashion "season" for those lucky few who might need a lovely nautical ensemble in the dead of winter -- to take with them on holiday.

These days, instead of cursing the idle rich, we do them one better: we'll cop those styles as soon as they debut and make use of the last few months of warm weather by sporting looks that won't be touted as "trends" until next year. That's the great thing about shopping vintage: while the rest of 'em wait around for Christopher Kane's resort collection to hit the stores, we jump the gun and approximate his tongue-in-cheek rainbow themed designs with this absolutely spot on dress from our collection. The best thing is, it's available now, so you can be the very first in the hood to be seen rocking what's sure to be a huge trend next spring/summer. We've done the legwork, and you can take the credit.

Wear it alone or under a black blazer for some good contrast. We're also loving the button up collar on this piece -- it's another design detail we're predicting is going to be everywhere soon. Get on this before H&M does; just sayin.
