Guest Post: Five Fashion Highlights

Five Fashion Highlights in 2011

Spring is the perfect time to perk up your wardrobe with some great runway-inspired clothing and accessories. These great looks will go from the office to dinner and a night out with the girls. From head to toe, 2011 fashion trends are an eclectic mix of feminine, funky, and retro.


Ruffles are a charming and feminine feature of this spring's lineup. In shirts, skirts, dresses and socks, these playful pieces are loaded with girlish fun and frivolity. Wherever it appears, this childhood favorite is growing up in 2011.

Trench coats and Trench dresses

Serious, functional and sexy, the trench coat is back. With clean lines, wide lapels, and belted just so, trench coats are everywhere this season. Whether it is khaki, white or black, this new twist on an old favorite has a place in every closet.

For those who don't want to leave the trench coat at the door, this year's trench dress is the answer. Double breasted and accented with a sash or bow, this just might be your new power suit.

Flare Jeans

Fashion from the 70's is back again with flare jeans leading the way. This year's look is long and lean, featuring high wastes and wide bottoms. Topped with a cute sweater, your favorite tee or a casual cami, flare jeans are a fashionable departure from the flood of skinny jeans of the last few years. Give this fun and funky throwback a place in your summer wardrobe.

Wedge Shoes

Kick off the winter boots and pump up your look this season with wedge shoes. Tall and strappy, these aren't your mother's platforms. Found in a variety of colors, materials and styles, wedge shoes can be dressed up or down and look great with everything from jeans to minis.

Pretty Prints

Because sometimes you just want to feel pretty in a simple and understated way, feminine printed dresses are back. Florals and patterns in a rainbow of colors and styles means that there is something out there for everyone this year. Find the cut that flatters and the pattern that appeals and you will have the perfect dress for any occasion.

  1. Pretty much all of my favorite things combined into one post. Love it.

  2. I like the ruffles and the trench coats especially in the brown color the most. The whole collection is good enough to enjoy.
