If you are anything like me, I’m sure you couldn’t wait for the fashion trends this spring is bringing us. 2011 really is going to rock: It’s all about comfort and ease! What’s easier than that?!? Now, this does not mean that we’ll be seeing slouchy, ragged, thrown together outfits. Spring 2011 tells us that fashionable can be comfortable too. Not to mention that just the thought of florals makes me feel warm and springy!
I love the soft splashes of femininity, like pinks, florals, paisleys, laces (can’t help but share this fantastic dress-courtesy of Aprizi.com) and natural colors. These are in the forms of jumpers, which I love to pair with over-sized comfy sweaters; mini dresses (found on boutiques.com), which can be paired with a great legging or tights to keep those of us in cooler climates warm, and a super stylish boot…again, some of us will have snow soon, if not already (found on MarieClaire.com Love this magazine!); and casual to dressy button-downs and boyfriend shirts, love these with jeans or leggings and a super comfy pair of flats, of which Tory Burch has so many to choose from).
Now for those of you put off by the skin-tightness of 2010, you’ll be happy to hear that looser bottoms are coming back this spring too. How fun to pair these two great trends and all of those great patterns! The accessories of the season will be fun to pair with these outfits too: bracelets, necklaces, scarves, and statement rings!
FYI: For those of us who don’t have a fortune to spend on our wardrobes, both Target and Forever21 are fantastic solutions to those retail urges that you know you have! And if you’re lucky enough to have an H&M near you…well, you know better than I do that they rock too! As for online shopping help, Aprizi and Boutiques.com are fantastic: it’s your style all the time!
My favorite part of transitioning from 2010 to 2011 is well, the actual transition! I’m excited to style my wardrobe and others’ by combining the contrast of harder edges of 2010 into the softer side of spring 2011!
