trend report: Resort 2011

for many, ‘tis the season for planning winter cruises and destination trips.  what to wear?  even if you are not traveling, you may simply want to freshen up your wardrobe in preparation for Spring.  take a cue from DVF, Marc Jacobs, Dior and Scognamiglio and go retro.  the runways are alive with prints!  gingham, nautical, feminine florals, pretty pastels and other decorated extras.  the return of the stewardess has inspired clean lines, and mini shift dresses.

here are my fave Resort 2011 runway looks!

DVF is everything that I love about fashion.  her designs are wearable and invigorating.  her use of print is notoriously awesome. 

this collection by Louis Vuitton is retro perfection!  this first look is my absolute favorite. words cannot describe how much i love this collection.

the return of the stewardess is most evident in this collection by Marc Jacobs. classic 1960s with a twist. just divine.

neon. citrine. hot pink. electric blue. florescent.

lessons from the runway for Spring 2011:

   show a little leg. the majority of these looks are above the knee, so go tastefully short. 

   florescent color is your new bff, as are all things pastel.  if the neons are not your thing, stick to shades that are already appealing to you but lighten it up a bit.  if hot pink is a bit much for you instead opt for a nice baby blue or green.  also, mix a vibrant color with a jean or dark bottom in order to balance things out a bit for everyday wear.  

  additionally, don’t be afraid to do it up with a colored slinky shoe! 

  girly frills have never looked so good!  add feminine accents to your ensemble this Spring.  check out more from Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton’s Resort 2011 collections for ways to girl it up the right way!

  use your accessorizes to add color! A pair of turquoise [or any color of your choosing, of course] earrings is a great way to stay on trend without breaking the bank!

  this is something that tends to be overlooked, but it can instantly amp up your look: lipcolor!  go with vibrant reds, or shades of purple.  nudes, of course, are always in.  

  there seems to be a trend for runway Spring in hair as well: usually the hair is pulled back into a low ponytail with a few wispy hairs framing the face.  careless beachy waves are also being shown alone or topped off with fishtail or french braids.
