Spring 2011 Trends PT 1/ School

Well everyone it's finally here! The last mountain of snow is melting, the puffer coats are being wrapped up, and the sun is making more than an appearance giving us a lasting impression that spring has arrived. Now the question is What am I going to wear? Well it's simple and it all comes down to the top five trends that are sure to knock em dead. First thing is colour, colour and more colour! Teal, citrus, and poppy shades dominated the runways of noteworthy's Jil Sander and Hayder Ackerman. Pull these colours together for with a subtle neutral or combine the different colours for your own little eclectic look. The second top trend is all about lace. Put on a lace dress and strap on some matching Mary Janes for the ultimate feminine romantic look. So if the idea of head to toe lace sends shivers on your insides add a splash of neon a la Christopher Kane or throw on some combat boots to toughen up your final look. The next trend is midi as in mid length. That's right skirts and dresses are no longer hitting at the usual knee or ankle but instead...mid calf. This is all due to the ladylike silhouettes designers such as Rodarte and Calvin Klein are bringing back in full force-however buyers beware! On the more petite girl this trend can make you look smaller instead of elongating your figure. Opt for sky high structural heels and keep the rest of your look casual for a more "I tried but not really" kind of look. Moving on the next trend to pay attention to has been on the map for quite sometime now. Prints Charming! From Prada, Dries Van Noten, to Givenchy, we seen these bold eclectic prints all over the runway. Flora, leather, leopard, python and even polka dots were used to add juxtaposition to a more classic style. Finally the last trend I want to talk about is all in the pants. Thanks to designers such as Michael Kors and Derek Lam, menswear inspired fashion is officially here to stay. High waisted, relaxed leg or seventies dream, go on out there and try on a pair for size. Part two will arrive shortly so stay tuned...
