To continue our resort collection retrospective, Real Style Network is taking a look at the youthful and fresh fashion from Donna Karan’s DKNY fashion line.

For the resort season, DKNY presented a young New York City inspired line that you can see going straight from the runway to the set of Gossip Girl. The looks are professional and sophisticated, but with a youthful edge to them for the NYC professional woman. The DKNY collection consists of looks that will easily take you from the office to after work drinks. We can easily see one of our favorite DKNYPR girl wearing this as she zooms about town tweeting away about her daily travails.

The day looks consist of smart jackets, sensible dresses and updated young suits. These are very classic tailored looks updated by DKNY to appeal to a younger crowd. The evening wear is hot and funky. Gold sequins sparkled on dresses and skirts, sheer tops are available for the bold fashionista and a red strapless mini gave the dark collection a blast of colour. While many other fashion designers we have seen gave short shorts and swimwear, the DKNY resort collection is filled with many long sleeve blouses and pants taking it in a different direction.
