NY fashion week and spring trends


Magazines such as ElleHarper's Bazaar or Glamour cover the most important events of fashion. 
After reading rather different NY fashion week reports, I'm going to share with you some hints to help you guess the most wearable Spring 2011fashion trends. Follow the rules!


Shoes: 
Walk-tall Stilettos, stripy sandals. Thanks to God, wedge heeled platform shoes (in white, neutral palettes).


Bags: 
Perfectly sized handheld bags. Preppy (striped) totes.
Colors: 
Neutral Palettes. Neon colors. The new combos are bright and colorful as citrusy orange and poppy pink. Stand alone: honeysuckle, red, orange, yellow, pastel green. Mixed up: red, true-blue, violet, orange. 


Cuts:
Loose dressing, flowing silhouettes. Asian tunics and vestes paired with cropped pants. Kimono-style wrapping for chinese and japanese prints. Menswear-like tailored suits in monocromo with loose or futuristic cuts. 

Costume Jewelry:
Not very much, the only hint is a rich pendant necklace. Medium sized, chain. What a boredom!

Prints:
Tribal patterns, leopard prints, animal shapes, jungle themes, the unfailing peacock feathers.

Patterns:
Rubrick's cube inspired colored bold blocks. Optical geometries. Floral, especially watercolor blooms that has been told "would look great as wallpaper".


Styles:
Definitely the 70's: retro bohemian, new bohemian. Eclectic chic. Urban Warrior. Punk reminiscence. Re-edited classic.



Tissues:
Chambray, a blue fabric lighter than denim. Lace and lingerie inspired. According to Elle report, <Lace was everywhere, but the message was more daring than "doily">. Sheer layers.

Never again without: Stripes


Ornaments:
Petals, sequined garments, bows (to draw the blouse neckline)




Back in town: 
The jumpsuit.




Refinements and details:
White and natural ropes. Crafty embellishments

Ever appropriate:
Updated trench with stand up collars. Cobalt, royal, slate, navy on classic cuts.


Keywords:
Less-in-more. All-in-one.
