Spring 2011 Trend Report: All About The Billow

Spring runways were full of flowing, billowing clothes from longer hemlines to soft chiffon pleats to pajama inspired outfits. Spring is longer, looser and softer. Off the runway, this translates into lightweight, flowy fabrics used in ankle grazing dresses, knee-length fuller skirts and loose pajama inspired pants and dresses. Has fashion finally embraced comfort?

Spring 2011 Trend Report: Bold Color

I decided to kick off my Spring 2011 Trend Report to beat the winter blues. It is currently snowing outside and I am dreaming of warmer, sunnier days. Take a break from winter and look forward to spring as I bring you the hot, new trends.

Let’s kick it off with color! It’s mixed bag as far as color is concerned; bright citrus hues like juicy orange, happy lemon and coral pink will share space with cool shades of turquoise and blue as well as soothing neutrals like cream, peach, tan and white. Invest in neutral shoes, bags and pants and add a pop of color with juicy hued dresses and tops. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colors that complement each other.

Color, Color Everywhere:
