Top Five Spring 2011 Trends And How To Wear Them Now
With New York Fashion Week behind us now, Spring 2011 trends are on our minds. Luckily, there is no need to wait for the warm weather to return, you can incorporate some of the haute Spring 2011 trends right now into your fall wardrobe and wear them into the next season. Here are our favorite Spring 2011 trends and ideas on how to wear them right now.
Sheer fabrics were omnipresent all over the Spring 2011 catwalks, which maintains the ethereal theme of SS11. ProenzaSchouler did the sheer trend tastefully by layering sheer fabrics over more modest fabrics. Pairing sheer tops with silk camis is a delicate and classy way to show some skin. You can incorporate this hot trend into your wardrobe by investing in a beautiful sheer top in black or nude (colors that are always “in” no matter what the season) and wearing them over a beautiful silk camisole. You can wear this look stylishly with a black pencil skirt for day and dark wash skinny jeans for night.
Designers have been bedazzling their clothing for a few seasons now and this is one trend that is here to stay. For SS11 designers favored silver embellishments that are striking and eye-catching. Silver embellishments covered everything from tops, miniskirts, dresses and even pants. Jenny Packham showcased beautiful silver embellished pieces in her SS11 runway show that were breathtaking. You can easily fit this trend into your closet by buying fabulous, statement making costume jewelry in silver so that you can amp up plainer tees, shirts and dresses in a snap.
The Full Skirt
With the return of spring we will see the return of the full skirt. A more modest and conservative hemline is all the rage in fashion right now and Spring 2011 will definitely be the season where this trend will take off in full force. Vena Cava showed beautiful full skirts that were still sexy when paired with more form fitting tops. To get in on this trend now and wear it into the next season, look for subtly printed skirts in bright colors that you can pair with a form-fitting turtleneck along with knee-high boots now and a tank-top and sandals in the spring.
Orange Is The New “it” Color
Orange is definitely the “it” color of the season. From nails, lips, dresses, shoes and everything in between orange was everywhere on the catwalks. Carlos Miele featured beautiful orange dresses du jour, which look absolutely gorgeous against tanned skin. You can work orange into your Fall 2010 wardrobe by using little pops of it here and there. Maybe try a pumpkin colored nail polish or try an orange satchel.
Wide Leg Trousers
Skinny jeans are a thing of the past. Fashionistas and designers are now embracing the wide leg trouser. From Marc Jacobs to Tory Burch, wide leg trousers are making a comeback and in a big way. Luckily, for us, they are super easy to pull off on any body type and look great when paired with a crisp white collared shirt and a blazer work as well as an embellished halter and sky high heels for night.
