Fashion Week 2010: Spring Fashion Forecast

The Spring 2011 fashion shows gave us some insight into what warm-weather trends are to come, so, of course, we had to share them with you! While it may be a little early to begin planning for next spring, here are the trends we spotted again and again on the runway last week.

1. Spring 2011 Fashion Trends: Suits

Skirt suits:

Jill Stuart and Oscar De La Renta included suits with shorts, skirts and matching fitted jackets—giving us work-ready outfits with a little glam on the side!

2. Spring 2011 Fashion Trends: Neutrals

Neutrals:

At Michael Kors and Badgley Mischka, colors like sand, ivory and blush ruled the runway. These new neutrals compliment any skin tone and give you a chance to really go for it with fun accessories.

3. Spring 2011 Fashion Trends: Citrus & Coral

Citrus and Coral:

Although nude ruled some runways, splashes of coral, orange and yellow were popular as well. Marc Jacobs embraced citrus tones, while coral showed up everywhere from Oscar de la Renta to Narciso Rodriguez!

4. Spring 2011 Fashion Trends: 70s

Swank 70’s:

The days of Studio 54 are back in full effect. Channel Bianca Jagger with long flowing dresses and big hats, or keep it casual with high-waist wide-leg trousers. 

5. Spring 2011 Fashion Trends: Minimalism

Minimalism:

Thank the fashion gods for minimalism. Both Michael Kors and Narciso Rodriguez embraced this trend, gifting us comfy loose fitting tops and dresses that are simultaneously fashion-forward and timeless.

Botanical Prints:

The flower and jungle inspired frocks on display at Carolina Herrera and Rosa Cha will get you in touch with your inner wild child, while keeping your look feminine.

Rosa Cha and Narciso Rodriguez gave their ensembles a trendy edge with sexy yet sophisticated cut-outs.
