We’ve all seen how fashion trends can go from season to season and year to year. We see entirely new items, some of the same from previous seasons, and sometimes things are brought back from years past. In any event, the fashion trends for the next season are always waited for and always—always—surprise us in one way or another.
Here we are at the halfway mark of Winter 2011. If you’re a fashion lover—and don’t be coy, most of us love fashion—then you’re probably already planning your outfits and overall look for the coming spring. If you’ve been a little too busy or have just fallen a bit behind, don’t worry—you still have plenty of time.
So, what’s the newest, biggest trend for Spring 2011? All sources—the ones that matter, anyway—are pointing to bright colors. Some of you may be thinking that this has been done numerous times over. You’re right. Bright colors surface every so often in the fashion world. Does this make the trend of brightness a “groundbreaking” trend for the coming season? The answer is a resounding yes, and here’s why.
Color always reappears in fashion trends when spring rolls around, but this year we’re seeing bright, vibrant hues, as opposed to the pastels of the previous years. Designers like Marc Jacobs have shown how glam these bold colors can be. Popular colors? How about pink and chartreuse?
If you’re a little hesitant to splash a ton of colors into your outfits, then start out small and slow. Add a handbag to carry your music phone and a few bangles. Try a pair of pink flats. Tie a simple scarf somewhere on your outfit. You can always work up when it comes to adding more color or going for brighter tones.
The best part? You can use color to pump up a normally neutral outfit. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.
