Looking Sizzling in 2011’s Hottest Fashion Trends

Summer 2011 is all about colour, length and feeling fabulous. Temperatures may be modest, but that doesn’t mean your fashion style shouldn’t be sizzling at every opportunity.

Catwalk trends can be intimidating and difficult to wear, but thankfully most high street retailers are offering up their own versions that are perfect for updating your wardrobe and really rocking this season’s top looks.

Perhaps one of the biggest and brightest trends this year is block colouring – bright colours that pop. Colours should be loud and proud – think hot fuscias, sizzling mandarins, electric blues and lucid greens. If you are feeling brave then clash your top and bottom halves, and divide with a metallic gold belt as seen on runway shows by Gucci. Be bold, be brave and team then with some sassy pink lipstick for straight off the catwalk style. A more accessible way to wear this look is with a pair of colourful cropped capri pants, which are easy to find on the high street in a dazzling array of mouth-watering colours. Perfect for those summer evening barbeques or for days picnicking in the park.

Pattern is also very popular. Stripes continue as a fashion staple and no stylish woman’s wardrobe is complete without one striped garment to dress up or down. Combine the colour and stripes trend by wearing a striking multi-coloured striped dress or skirt. Secondly, feminine floaty florals are big news for the fairy tale princess in you and pretty dresses are perfect for summer 2011.

Lace continues to be a popular look, whether all over lace or in sections of a garment. Layering up with a black or neutral toned lace bolero is a fabulous way to stay warm as the sun goes down.

In terms of dresses, two styles are very much on trend this season – the maxi dress and bodycon. The maxi dress creates a silhouette which is at once both alluring and modest. This floor sweeping number can be teamed with heels and a striking necklace for night-time elegance or with open toed sandals and a floppy hat for laid-back summer cool. Wear it in classic white and add some beautiful accessories for the gorgeous Grecian goddess look.

Bodycon is also big news, and is the sexy figuring hugging style to go for if you really want to be noticed. Wear in black for a sophisticated look or pair with the block colour trend for cocktail party style that is fun and flirty. This summer womens fashion is all about being fun, flirty and frolicking around all season long.
