It's always fun to do a little prediction of the future,
right? Here are some trends I see sticking around or
showing up in 2011:
- Socks with heels.
I know this trend was hot and
cold for many people. Some loved it, some hated it. I
was on the fence for awhile but grew to realize that
it's comfortable so stop being against it! However, if
Jason Wu's collection
is any indicator... it seems
this trend is going to stick around in 2011. Perhaps
people will grow to love it!
- Nude heels are out!
Don't get me wrong... I
love a great nude heel! It is flattering on most women.
I just think women grew a little too comfortable and
designers are going to mix it up. I think now that we
are shopping like there isn't a recession anymore, it's
okay to start wearing bright colors again (see
Honeysuckle below). Hooray!
- Heavy metal accessories.
I feel like the punk
thing goes in and out. I do enjoy that designers try to
mix it with classics. I'm dying over Burberry's studded
trench coat! Aren't you?
is also betting on this trend. I'm a huge
sucker for studs so I say bring it!
- Flared pants.

Say goodbye to skinny jeans (you
don't really have to)! I think flared pants can be
flattering on most women, they just have to find the
right fit. Don't be afraid of them! I'm excited to move
away from skinny jeans into the flared look. 70's is
definitely still going to be the fashion decade for
- Women in meanswear.

Japan premiere of Tron: Legacy
I think this could go along
with flared pants. Young fashionistas, including my girl
, having been donning suits lately. I think
women can look so sexy in suits (when done right!). I'm
also not a girlie girl myself so I'm always for this
Apparently that is
Pantone's color of 2011
. I'm not a fan of pink so I
wasn't too thrilled with this announcement. I do like
that Pantone said it's "encouraging" and "uplifting."
Fashion definitely needs that in 2011! I could see
liking it in a print for Spring (small doses).
- Throwbacks and hoods.
Movies always inspire
fashion trends (even the bad ones!). There are going to
be some remakes that are going to throw the fashion
world back to that decade, prime example:
. Everyone is going to want to bust out
their favorite eighties prom gown for that movie.
Another major movie I think is going to influence
Red Riding Hood
starring Amanda Seyfried.
She's a young girl so I think she is going to have a
great appeal to a wide fashion market (read: young
girls). I think
will agree with me on this next
Water for Elephants
. It has major stars in it
so people will definitely notice it, even if it is bad
(which I hope it isn't!). The movie is set in the
thirties, which inspire some vintage flare.
Second City Style noted that "Black Swan" is still a
big influence. I like the ballerina influences!
