Hot Trends To Look Forward to in 2011

 

Wow, it's already 2011! Another year and season for the fashion scene! I bet your already dying to know what is going to be the most wanted items of 2011? Here's a few ideas on what trends may be the hottest trends to come for 2011...

Hot Trend 1: the Funky 70's

Elements of the 70's fashion scene will make a comeback in 2011, including 70's bohemian and glamour. 70's glamour is set to influence designers, as they reinvent bell bottoms, flares, sheer glamour dresses (the sheer maxi dress), silk feminine blouses and roll neck sweaters in order to create the 70's look with a 2011 twist.

In the name of the 70's revival, we are to see on the high street crochet and macramé garments, which reinvent the 70's boho fashion with a modern twist. In 2011, you'll be able to find crochet dresses, garments to go over swimwear, bags and woven shoes (similar to the roman shoe fashion), which look to be a particular favourite. So whether its glamour or bohemian you want, the seventies is an ideal to decade to look to for fashion inspiration.

Hot Trend 2: Biker Chic

This year we are to say a tearful goodbye to the military look, for it is to be replaced with the biker look. This look is sleek, sexy and captivating as it's all about tight fitting leather, not just in black either! This look obviously requires a biker jacket, which is centre piece to the look. For fashion in 2011, the biker jacket has been reinvented in various styles and colours, and has even appeared on the catwalks with a hint of the military style influence.

For Biker pants, detail is key, with the biggest fashion being the overly apparent zip and pockets, which give the biker look its bold aesthetics. Expect not only to see trousers but biker influenced skirts this year.

Hot Trend 3: The Graceful Lady of Early 60's

For those who like a more feminine look, you'll be grateful to hear the graceful look of the 1960's is back, with long flowing dresses set to rule the fashion scene this year. Look to the early 60's, still heavily influenced by the prior decade, with its prom dresses, circle skirts and clinched in waists. All of which exuded that graceful and neat aesthetics of that time. Put it into the context of 2011, and you'll see these styles paraded on the catwalk in heavier materials, in floral patterns, lace, crochet and in bright and pastel colours. The main trick to this style is a clinched in waist with either a straight down dress/skirt or circular full flowing dress/skirt.

You can complement each trend with fashion tights and accessories from that decade's style. The funky 70's style bodes well with animal prints, whilst for a bold biker look go for bright block colour tights and stick to traditional tinted tights (light pinks, purple, skin colour and blacks) for a 60's ladylike look.
