It’s the time of the year when our fashion designer favorites reveal their 2012 resort collections, giving us a glimpse at what we might be wearing during next year’s spring vacation.

From bohemian gypsy prints to neon-retro styles evoking hints of Jackie O, here are MO’s five favorite resort looks from five designers we’re coveting for our closet.

Alice + Olivia Resort 2012 Alice + Olivia 

We always love the looks from designer Stacey Bendet for Alice + Olivia, and we loved her fun and flirty twist in her last two fashion week presentations.  Her 2012 resort wear collection takes on the 60’s with a wide variety of silhouettes and bold and bright color palettes.

Bendet designed a mix of Grecian draped dresses and structured neon shifts and separates that creates a collection with something for everyone.

MO’s favorite 2012 Pick: We’re crazy quirky over the striped blazer paired with a green mini dress and yellow peep toe platforms.  Fun, bold and daring!

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2012 Diane Von Furstenberg 

DVF has created a youthful resort collection that is designed with fresh and bright graphic prints and colors.

The sporty pieces are great for the bold, modern woman; and we loved most of her simpler looks in her 2012 resort collection.

MO’s favorite 2012 Pick: We die for the black and white tribal patterned slouchy romper over a color-blocked tee.  Effortless and yet so chic!

Stella McCartney Resort 2012 Stella McCartney 

There isn’t a piece that we didn’t love in Stella McCartney’s extraordinary line.  Her over-sized round structural shapes, floral illustrated prints, and use of delicate feminine lace were all abundant in McCartney’s Resort 2012 collection.

We just love her suit silhouettes! The curved shoulders and tapered pants make her suits so easy!

MO’s favorite 2012 Pick: We’re tickled over McCartney’s understated monochromatic white ensemble full of lace paired with princess loafers. Lovely!

Missoni Resort 2012 Missoni 

Missoni revealed a collection abundant with hues of pinks, purples and blues with a bohemian meets magic gypsy woman feel.

MO’s favorite 2012 Pick: We absolutely adore the purple and airy drop waist and breezy long skirts. Can’t you just imagine a magical night on the beach while wearing this?

Yves Saint Laurent Resort 2012 Yves Saint Laurent 

YSL anchored their collection with sailor-themed designs that featured exaggerated shoulders, girlish silhouettes and prints echoing decades past.

While some of the looks were literal in their nautical theme—such as an anchor that was emblazoned on a cute blazer—there were some real standouts. YSL’s 2012 resort collection revealed retro-inspired rompers, shiny red leather trench coats and a stunning floral printed red chiffon gown.

MO’s favorite 2012 Pick: We’re a sucker for bright and fresh bold floral prints on a dress worthy of any spring day.
