Spring Trends 2011
I love how every season anyone even remotely fashion related decides to make a list of trends for the upcoming three months until they need to do it again for the next three months. Because if you didn't know, you can only wear something for that long before you are tragically, painfully unfashionable. This morning I was lucky enough to receive emails from both Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom about the Spring 2011 trends.
According to Nordstrom they are:
The Fit and Flare Dress
The Kitten Heel (Please don't wear kitten heels)
The Romantic Blouse
The Framed Satchel
Flared and Wide Leg Pants
Maxi Dresses and Skirts (This one I'll give them since pretty much every one in the entire world from Michael Kors to American Apparel has a pleated maxi skirt out this season)
The Minimal Jacket
Here's what Neimans has to say:
Florals (This is definitely something new for Spring...)
The White Wardrobe
The Spring Face (What even is this?)
And, because I love you, I decided to do some research to see what others apparently in the know have to say about it.
Style.com thinks Spring is going to be all about:
Pants (I'm not making that up)
Straight and Narrow Silhouettes
Sports Bras as Tops (also not making that one up)
Harpers Bazarre says the trends will be:
"Eclectic Chic" (Don't worry, I don't know what it means either)
And then, with my most favorite list of Spring 2011 trends is Glamour:
High Waisted Flare Jeans
"Mixed Happy Prints"
"Something Simple and Rust Colored"
Japanese Inspired Style
Neutrals and Nudes
So, the good news is pretty much whatever you wear this Spring you're going to be on trend pointe. Because I think every single possible clothing choice fits into some category on these lists. The bad news is our Spring is going to be filled with people wearing sheer, boldly hued, Japanese inspired pajamas from the 70s.
Seriously Fashion Industry, why do you make yourself look so stupid sometimes? You're actually fun when you aren't trying so hard.
