Trend Alert: What's Hot for 2011! Part 2

In our last blog, we revealed that lace, bright pinks and oranges, and printed shorts would be all the rage. Looking for more of spring's hottest looks? Here's more low down...

Sheer tops
Tanks and blouses being shown for spring/resort are super see through--see Jason Wu and Proenza Schouler's interpretations of the trend below. Loving the sheer look but not sure how to execute it? Simply wear a basic silk fitted tank or cami underneath--match the strap shape of your undershirt to the strap shape of the sheer tank/blouse. For those bold stylistas out there, try rocking a printed undertank instead of a solid--it will give your outfit uniqueness and pop. On the bottom, opt for a pencil skirt, skinny trousers or denim.

Long skirts
Sophisticated and chic, the long skirt is making a comeback in a big way. Not only is it a comfortable trend, but you can easily dress it up or down. Make the look street ready with a tank, tee or blouse--flats for causal or heels for dress up.

1970's style
It seems that almost every designer on the 2011 runway was somewhat inspired by the 70's era. The catwalk was filled with halter tops, flared pants, caftans, earthy fabrics, maxis, longer hemlines on skirts, and belted waists. Incorporate a few of these styles into your spring wardrobe to stay on trend.
