A lot of fashion bloggers poke fun at the concept of "resort wear." What is resort wear?
According to Wikipedia, "Resort wear is a specialized clothing style, as well as a year-round fashion "season". Sometimes known as "cruise wear", it was originally marketed by "upscale" stores and collections only to very affluent customers who were expected to spend the post-Christmas/New Year's weeks in warm-weather climates."
I love me some Balmain, but I don't know what kind of resort or warm-wear climate this is designed for:
In reality, resort wear means "outfits celebrities wear."
Kate Hudson isn't the first person I think of when I think of Balmain (more like Gwen Stefani) but this is a great step out of her comfort zone.
This light blue dress is easily my favorite out of the entire Balmain Resort 2014 collection.
