in my post on monday i said i would be putting up more pictures and ideas for upcoming spring trends. so i have compiled a selection of photos from my desktop and tried to organize it all in an orderly way ;)
Trend #1: White lace= white lace and white crochet is at the top of everyone’s it list for spring/summer 2011. from dresses, to shorts, to tops and skirts you can have fun with it in so many ways. no need to buy the most expensive new lace ensembles. vintage stores have the best lace around. start hitting up your local thrift and vintage shops and you’ll be surprised at how much you can find. below i love the lace dresses from dolce and gabbana and white crochet top from free people.photos above from vogue turkey jan 2011, tobacco and leather, free people and fashiongonerogue.
Trend 2: Sheer/ Flowy / Mesh
Continuing over from fall and winter with the sheer black skirt craze, whites, creams and pastels are taking over for spring summer in the same kind of way. a light colored sheer flowy skirt or dress is a must have for s/s 2011. I love all three below. wear it during the day with a thin top and sandals and throw on flat boots and a leather jacket at night to make two great outfits. photos above from Marie Claire Brazil Jan 2011, L-Offieiel Ukraine Jan 2011 and Stockholm street style.
Trend #3: Fringe
I’ve always been obsessed with fringe, but now it’s everywhere for 2011. Seen on runways like roberto cavalli, to magazines, to the street- fringe, tassles, hanging things, whatever you want to call them are a necessity. be that flirty fun hippie meets western girl this summer. i can assure you its beyond fun. below i love the ralph lauren fringe jacket and everything roberto cavalli has been designing for 2011 photos from tobacco and leather, l’officiel ukraine jan 2011.
Trend #4: Lots of colored stones and body jewelry
Whoever said less is more is definitely wrong this year. With jewelry and accessories its more, more, more. make your own jewelry like i do with colored stones and beads. looks for native american inspired designs for inspiration. use turqouise. use jagged rough edges and stay away from symmetry. this year its all about being funky, fun and original with your jewels. wear body jewelry, body chains, arm cuffs and chain, hand harnesses that attached from your fingers to your wrists. wear a ring on every finger if you want… i do. mix silvers and golds. nothing is off limits. top photo from the amazing spell jewelry designs. check out their stuff its phenom spelldesigns.com, other photos from l’officiel ukraine and factory 2010.
there are some fun things to think about and get your minds ready and bodies prepared for the spring and summer to come.
