Fashion Trends Spring/ Summer 2011

The beginning of Spring/ Summer 2011 fashion season is just round the corner but you still haven’t decided on what to wear during it? Let me help you determine your choice with the following list of fashion trends.


Full skirts. For Spring/ Summer 2011 fashion season we see the return of full skirts that used to be hot in 1970s. And while some of us do not really consider these as sexy or interesting men have quite the contrary opinion. They love watching a girl walking in a full skirt and believe such pieces look incredibly feminine. Besides, they do leave a lot to imagination.


Designs of full skirts of this season are very diverse that allows every woman choosing a piece that suits her particular figure. There are long and sheer skirts or shorter and fuller versions. And Salvatore Ferragamo offers assymetrical styles.


Wide pants. Wide pants have also come to us from the far 70s. They are comfy, stylish and often elegant. But there are plenty of more modern and youthful designs.


High-waisted wide pants. Wide leg trouser with high waist comes as one possible form of wide pants which are totally trendy in Spring/ Summer 2011 fashion season. These are seen all over the runways and are already hitting the streets.


Create the retro look with floaty tops, platforms and skinny belts and get ready for the flattering attention of your fashionista friends. Find this trend in collections of Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, Tommy Hilfiger, Tory Burch and other designers.


Pajamas. You will be surprised to know that couturiers want us to wear pajamas as outwear this Spring/ Summer 2011. They consider it as quite comfortable to don such items outside of your boudoir. See trendy pieces in ranges by Thakoon, AOS, Topshop, Paul Smith and others.


Shorts. Shorts are comfy while being very stylish, which makes them so popular with women all over the world. In Spring/ Summer 2011 designers offer customers a great variety of shorts designs, from those ready to be worn to office to quite short and daring pairs.


Shirt-dresses. While the combination of words seems to be ridiculous the pieces of this style look very pretty on the Spring/ Summer 2011 runway. Tommy Hilfiger offers a womanly variant of the dress, Viktor & Rolf suggest trying asymmetrical design while Paul Smith sees women wearing longer mannish frocks.

Sheer fabrics trend Spring 2011

Sheer fabrics. Trend for sheer fabrics has been with us for a while already. It seems that long sheer skirts are the most popular for Spring/ Summer 2011. However, one can find loads of sheer dresses, blouses and tops on the runway, too.


Lace. If you want some of your flesh to be seen through the fabric you can either go for a lace trend of Spring/ Summer 2011 fashion season. Every brand from Dolce & Gabbana to Issa offers some kind of sexy lace. Some pieces are entirely made of lace, others have tempting lace insets. It’s you who can choose what to wear though. The number of versions is huge. (See LACE AS S/S 2011 TREND.)


Maxi dresses. This type of dresses never goes out of vogue. Every fashion season we see many floor-sweeping gowns on the runway but in Spring/ Summer 2011 the number of maxis has increased significantly. Dresses have become airier, lighter, and more flowing. And majority of items come with prints.


To see maxi dresses look through Alberta Ferreti, Carolina Herrera, Gianfranco Ferre’s and other collections.


Tail dresses. Welcome the new and pretty unexpected Spring/ Summer 2011 trend – tail dresses!!! The runway abounded with tail dresses – shorter and sexier, of average length and even long and red-carpet-ready gowns.


Floral print. Just a couple of fashion seasons back we celebrated the popularity of floral print. And here it is again, more diverse than before thanks to Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera and Christian Dior. (See S/S 2011 FLORAL TREND.)


Leopard print. Alas and alack! But leopard print is again trendy. See how Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry Prorsum and Rebecca Taylor see the pattern incorporated into our wardrobes.



White dresses. White is always one of the most popular colors but for Spring/ Summer 2011 it is one of the hottest trends. And it is most notable on dresses, both short and long. Dresses come in minimalistic style, with frills and fringing, sheer and trimmed with lace.



Bright colors. During Spring/ Summer 2011 black and darker hues are not trendy but brighter tones are very popular. Lemon yellow and orange are the best. (See S/S 2011 COLOR TRENDS.)



Fringing. Fringe is an interesting trend. It can transform the look into a real work of art or ruin it completely. Softer version of fringing looks cute and womanly. But fringe on cowboy-inspired garments looks more brutal and tougher.


Belts. Extensive use of belts has become fashionable last season and until now belts do not lose their popularity. Wear a belt with a dress to accentuate your midriff, pair it with a skirt or trousers to finish the look, or add a piece to make the outfit more unusual.


Minimalism. While many interesting details that decorate women’s clothes have been created some ladies still prefer to wear minimalistic garments in Calvin Klein’s style. It is good time to go now as during Spring/ Summer 2011 fashion season minimalism is an essential trend.

  • I love the trends that everyone is sporting on the streets! The bright colors, lace and sheer clothing mentioned in this article I’ve seen people wearing and it’s very inspiring! My friends love fashion and trends. They both graduated from FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in LA and love fashion. They both have great careers since graduating from FIDM and told me that the school has lots of great programs that focus on the fashion industry.
