I know I know, we haven’t even gotten to the worst part of winter yet and I’m already writing about spring -BUT lets all think warm happy thoughts, and maybe it will blind that ground hog in to not seeing it’s shadow! Fashion’s beginning to warm up too! Gone are the greys and blacks and in come the neutrals (nude is huge) and bright colors! We spoke about Honeysuckle being the new color of 2011, but what else is there? Here’s the breakdown:
- Peak-a-boo clothing
- Back to school style (stripes, knee highs, academic blazers)
How all the trends on the runway will play out for retail is always interesting. Generally the trend (such as the peek-a-boo) is very in your face on the runway, almost offensive. However by the time it’s watered down to the retail level, we just see a few hints of the style that make it practical for the rest of the world to wear. I saw a lot of feathers in clothing, but I have a feeling it will take off more with accessories and shoes in the stores. My favorite trend is “Back to School”, it’s lovely and innocent!
