Trends of Spring 2011

Thank you Refinery 29 for summing up the trends for next season. Can't say i'll try all of them, but I will continue the minimalism and maxi's.

1. Going Long—Dowdy or not, fuller, longer, smarter looking skirts, dresses, and their maxi siblings have been giving minis a major run for their money. Call it a grown-up moment; You can bet your bottom dollar that, come spring, those thighs of yours will be staying nicely undercover.

Diane von Furstenberg, Jil Sander; Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein Collection.

2. The Return Of Minimalism—Phoebe Philo started it at Céine this year, but for 2011 it's all the other silky, simple separates, neutral tones, white-washed palettes, and future-friendly utilitarian details like paramilitary straps that have positioned this trend as a Big One for 2011.

3.1 Philip Lim, Richard Chai Love, Yigal Azrouël, Rag & Bone.

3. Printed Matter—Even if everyone is copying, we still can't get enough of prints. And spring/summer basically turned up the volume: think bigger, louder, more playful and expressive than ever, from the sweet fruit prints at Suno and Prada to bold animal prints that were...well, everywhere.

Burberry Prorsum, Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, Prada.

4. White on White - There are few things more lovely than a lady in white. Less romantic, more minimal chic, this season's white is all about well-tailored suiting at Altuzarra, body skimming at Calvin, and showing off your lack of color.

Alexander Wang, VPL, Rag & Bone, and Calvin Klein Collection.

5. Block Party—The palette for the season was super intense with bright orange, turquoise, honeysuckle pink, and yellow dominating. A lot of designers played with pairing multiple intense colors together, which provided a beyond bold effect.

Jil Sander, Proenza Schouler, Prabal Gurung, Z Spoke.

6. That '70s Show—From the wide-leg trouser to the sexiest classic halter top, the '70s are back (again!) in a big way.

Marc by Marc Jacobs, Marc Jacobs, Derek Lam, and Tory Burch.
