Trends Your Spring '11 Closet Needs
Wedges are the kind of heel you want this Spring! Pictured above are some higher priced ones, mainly Jeffrey Campbell and L.A.M.B, but for those of us without a job [raises hand], there's stores like Aldo, Bakers, and Asos. Click here, here, and here for their selection of wedges!
Bags of all vibrant spring-y colors are in for this season. The handbags are fun and chic necessities to an everyday outfit, and the clutches can add a pop to any outfit for a night out!
Off the Shoulder Tops
A dressy top that's already designed to be off the shoulder is great for a date or party, but if you just want to make a shirt you already have off the shoulder, graphic tees are the perfect candidate! Urban Outfitters has some cute tops here and so does Delia's here.
Nude pumps are a great alternative for the basic black pumps because they keep your outfit light and springy and elongate your legs! Just find a cute pair closest to your skin tone and you'll be set. Every girl needs a pair in their closet and I'm currently on the search for some flats and pumps!
70s - Inspired
The 70s trends have come back full force with modern twists and variations. My personal fav 70s items are wide-legged jeans and blouses with big bows, as seen above on the models dressed in designs by Derek Lam and Marc Jacobs. I love the clean simplicity!
Love this palette for Spring '11 Gucci
And finally, the most prominent trend this Spring. Color Blocking is when you wear items of solid colors [no prints] with items of completely different hues. It's funky, chic, and different when done correctly. Here are the rules:
Using complimentary color combos and just starting simple [like wearing different color blazers and tops] are an easy way to start rocking this trend. Have fun!
