Top Trends for Spring 2011

3/14/2011 Whit and Whit 0 Comments

As the weather warms up, it's time to get ready to store away those winter clothes (or adapt a few key pieces for this season) and get ready for spring. Last year's runway shows gave us a preview of what was coming, and we would like to share with you our top 4 favorite trends for spring 2011:

Citrus Colors:

We love how this trend automatically brightens you up and welcomes the warm weather. All orange shades: coral, persimmon (think Jennifer Hudson's Oscar dress), apricot, pumpkin and cool salmon are great choices for dresses, tops, bottoms and accessories. Pair with another bold color or tone it down with nudes.

Tip: If it's too bold for you, start small with a handbag or a bracelet.


Oh how we love these! Not only are they cute, but they are a great alternative to a tall & skinny heel that is actually easier to walk in. You can have height without having to sacrifice comfort. The extra support from the wedge heel will have you walking pretty and in less pain! As the weather warms up, find yourself a cute pair.

Tip: Try a platform wedge for added height and comfort.

Neutrals and Nudes:

Skin tone nudes and earthy neutrals are very easy-going and classic. Think taupe, sand, beige, pale pink, tan, and brown. A nude shoe is a perfect way to balance out a bold color or print dress.

Tip: If you feel washed out in head-to-toe neutrals, add a pop of color (a black, rich blue or red).

70's Chic:

A 1970's revival is in full effect. More celebs are being spotted in flare jeans (and wide leg pants) that are very 70's chic. I think the key to pulling off the flare leg jeans is not wearing them tight like your skinny jeans. A relaxed fit will do the trick.

Tip: High-waist flare jeans can take your look from day to night. Glamour magazine says wear them with wedge heels and a tucked in top to look long and lean (à la Lauren Conrad).

Tip: If flare jeans aren't for you (they aren't for everyone), check out this clip from GILT.com highlighting other favorites from the 70's that you can borrow:

Have you already started to adapt some of these trends into your closet? Which are your favorites? My (Whitney W) personal favs are the citrus colors (recently purchased a few items in coral) and wedges (I'm a big fan of height + comfort)!

Happy shopping! :)
