There were so many trends to love this season, we just couldn't pick just 10. Here are our top 12 fashion trends for spring!
In Living Color
Pops of bright, saturated hues like orange, fuchsia, turquoise and yellow turned the runways into a kaleidoscope of color. Whether you opt for contrasting color blocked brights or prefer to mix them with neutrals, this feel-good trend is worth incorporating into your look this spring.
Stripe it Rich
Whether sporty and nautical or bold and bright, colorful stripes appeared on everything from clothing to accessories this season. Often seen mixed with a contrasting print, spring stripes have a playful and fun feel to them.
This season's prints are loud and proud, ranging from bold geometrics and vibrant abstract patterns to tribal-inspired and animal prints. Many designers expertly mixed prints together, but adding just one printed piece to your look works just as well.
Get It White
In stark contrast to the bright colors that are taking over spring, a number of all-white looks strolled down the 2011 runways. Whether you choose to wear white head to toe or to mix it in with a bright piece, this crisp, refreshing look is always worth adding to your wardrobe.
From sexy to sweet, designers were loving lace this season. Look for traditional black and white lace pieces as well as colorful lace items.
There's a new alternative to minis and maxis this season: the midi skirt. Hemlines are dropping for spring, hitting anywhere from the knee to the ankle, offering women a less revealing option that can be just as feminine and sexy as shorter skirts.
That '70s Show
Spring's most fun trend? A fresh update on the Solid Gold and Studio 54 decade: the '70s. Halter and peasant tops, floppy hats, chunky platforms, high waisted wide leg jeans and halter dresses are just some of the disco-era clothes making a comeback.
Skinny pant haters rejoice, the wide leg pant returns for spring. Whether you choose a fluid wide leg trouser or a roomier jean, this silhouette is a game changer for spring. Tuck in a blouse, add a chunky platform and get ready for legs that look miles long.
Though always in style as far as we're concerned, it's still nice to see animal prints walk the runway for so many seasons in a row. Proving to be well worth the investment, every woman should own something leopard and python printed, even if it's just an accessory.
Filmy sheer layers floated across the spring runways, creating a feminine, ethereal presence. One of the most popular sheer looks was a long sheer skirt or pant layered over short opaque bottoms. To translate the sheer look to the street, opt for transparent layers over body concealing opaques.
It isn't springtime without flowers, and once again, florals were blooming on the runways. From sweet to spicy, romantic to exotic, there are plenty of bouquets to pick from this season.
Silver and Gold
Take a shine to silver and gold this season with spring's metallic trend. Whether you opt for a well-placed accessory or go for a shiny piece of clothing, you'll be golden.
