Jenni Kayne gave birth to her second child about a month ago, and her Resort collection befits the with-it, L.A.-based mom. Her best-selling tailored trousers with a subtly tapered leg made a reappearance, and a boxy double-breasted tuxedo jacket was cut in a lighter weight than her Fall crowd-pleasers. On the more languid side of the equation, Kayne showed palazzo pants and easy silk dresses and tunics with narrow keyhole necklines.

The collection's most exciting pieces made use of on-trend high slits. A soft lavender maxi skirt was split both up the front and at the sides, offering a flash of leg from every angle. Speaking of slashes, a long, cap-sleeved dress in acid yellow was about as close as it got to eveningwear. Kayne wasn't looking to make a dramatic statement here. "These clothes are made to work for you," she said. "They're not precious."
