Menswear: Pulling in traditional staples of men’s wardrobes including: tuxedo jackets, fitted pantsuits, and even the fedora (thanks to Charlie Sheen), menswear was tailored to perfection created a modern silhouette for women in 2011.
Polka Dots: Stella McCartney’s Spring 2011 collection incorporated unique applications of the traditional polka dot to create sophisticated black and white looks.
Arm Candy: Thanks to fashion bloggers, like Blair of Atlantic-Pacific, piling on the bracelets became a staple look of 2011. Mixing old school friendship bracelets with gold watches and funky bangles became an essential part of finishing off an outfit this year.
Bold Colors: Although not a new trend, bold color blocking was back in full force. Gucci’s Spring collection introduce creative color blocking with rich hues. New bold color combination were also popular, including hot pink and red.
Mixed Patterns: Prada’s eclectic mix of prints revived the daring pattern mixtures seen by designers across the globe. Stripes on top of stripes and even jungle prints from Prada’s minimal baroque collection influenced all of us to step out of our comfort zone and try new pattern combinations.
