So this is part 2 of my spring summer 2011 trend guide. If you missed part one of the trend guide then definitely go back and check out, otherwise you’ll be missing out on some of the key trends. These guides are really a heads up for what’s going to be hitting the stores right about now. Even if you’re not a fan of the full on designer interpretation of the trend, you still need to know what’s key for this season as it will determine what clothes appear on the high street. So I’m not going to mess around any longer, let just get straight into it shall we?
Along with the longer length of skirts this season so the softening of silhouettes and a return to the romance of delicateness.
If you’re one that want’s a break from the seasons brights then you’ll be happy to know nude is also key for this season. If you want to do the head to toe look try breaking it up with a change in fabrics. Also a tan is not a necessity for this look as the nude tones look better against paler skin.
Contrasting to the last trend, nude, with tangerine make sure you have tanned toned legs. These youthful, zesty tones were all over the catwalk and will be a big favourite for those itching to experiment with some colour. As always if it’s too bold for you just try adding it in with some accents via accessories.
This is in reference to the tassels, feathers and appliques that you could find adorned on many a piece on the catwalks.
Another striking hue that was all over the catwalk for spring summer 2011. Oceanic hues will be another favourite for those wanting to add some colour. Again if you want to tone it down use it sparingly or try partnering it with black, which will soften the impact of the colour.
Pleats, gatherings and delicate draping added texture and movement to the catwalk this season.
As well as the far east there was also a latin spirit that had inspired many a collection on the runway this spring summer. Full skirts and peasant blouses could be found at Marc Jacobs & Moschino among others.
Denim is back this time with an aim to expand from it’s casual comfort zone with skirt suits and tailored jackets. Jeans for this season are all about looser cuts belted at the waist.
So that it’s for spring summer 2011, just a few more honourable mentions before I do wrap it up. Headscarves are one of this seasons key accessories and if you’re looking for a pair of sunglasses it’s all about bright perspex frames in exaggerated shapes for spring summer 2011.
