The 2013 resort runway shows are coming to an end, so it's time to do some trend spotting. Here's what WWD predicts will be the stand-out trends of the season.

Dresses Over Pants
This is a trend that tries to happen every couple years, but never quite makes the transition from runway to real life. Perhaps 2013 will be the year.

Printed Jackets
All the better for mixing with your crazy-ass jeans or printed pajama pants.

Denim on Denim
We happen to be huge fans of this iconic look, but there are people who are ready to see it return to the Wild West ranches from whence it came. Sorry suckers! It's sticking around for another year, at least.

From Kate Middleton to Michelle Williams and Solage Knowles, they've been all over the red carpet. Soon, you will welcome them into your own regular-person lives.
