2011 Summer Trends1) Turquoise
Turquoise: a classic color for summer, synonymous with the waters of the Mediterranean. It is ideal to mix with different shades of coral. Golden accessories will add mysticism, and coordinate with the perfect neutral shade: Brown.
2) Color Block
Summer arrives challenging the color palette. Color block takes a page from modern art, matching different shades in geometric patterns on a same piece of clothing. Clean, classic and versatile, are synonyms of this elegant way of dressing.
3) Tie Dye
This interesting color gradient transforms a dull piece into a fun one. In its origins, Tie Dye became the “Ombre” tendency in European catwalks, adding diversity and a certain ethnicity. It matches very well with the “Boho Chic” or Gypsy look.
4) Fringes in Motion
Fringes add life and motion to any fashion piece. Fun, even flashy, but be careful not to saturate any one piece of clothing or outfit with them. Use them moderately. A handbag or accessory is ideal to wear this trend.
5) Ethnic Style
The Ethnic Style is back for the summer in its entire splendor. Large wooden pieces, exuberant bracelets with details in stones and earrings that defy gravity are some of the alternatives to showcase this trend. Bags combining different textures of leather are ideal to match these colorful and stunning accessories.
The basic and simple jean is the essential wardrobe piece to match with colorful blouses, adding accessories with a summery touch. A white shirt with see through details adds a refreshing and flowy style to your favorite jeans. Use them in lighter tones that take us back to the 80’s.
It is impossible to imagine summer without them. Tribal prints, textures and ruffles will provide a lush style to your new swimsuit. If you select a one-piece suit, asymmetrical and draped styles will be “In”.
8) Stylish Shorts
Shorts are an essential piece of clothing for your summer wardrobe. Wear them with style. The key is in the length, for each inch counts. Select those with pleats, in colors such as khaki and white. The Safari look continues to be in fashion.
