My Fashion Predictions – 2011 – Part 2

January 7, 2011

Okay this is a bit harder, what will be popular next spring and summer… here goes!

Spring/Summer 2011

I think there will be strong elements from the 40s, 50s and 60s evident in a lot of the major fashion.  From the 40s, we will see lace and flirty frills.  I think a lot of this will be elegantly done in blouses and pretty little sixties style dresses.  In addition the smooth creams and natural colours of the 40s will also be evident in these floaty style pieces.  The fifties will provide form, skirts will be fuller, but not full circle or meringue, just with more fabric, but these skirts will not be the mid calf length but will start to ride back up the legs to show off the knees.  The sixties will provide A line dresses and cute pastel colours and styles.

Materials will range from styled leather jackets to cotton blouses and shirts and floral prints.  Accessorise with skinny belts and I think you may even see a summer gloves appear this year… perhaps?

To sum it up, I think it will be strongly feminine and flirty.  The only thing to rival my prediction is the really BOLD prints that many designers in Europe sent down the runway in their collections.  As this Prada image shows!
