Let the Runways Be Your Guide to Must-Have Fashion

Fashion Week 2011 Fashion Trends
When it comes to spring and summer fashions, designers have decided to go with the flow—as in flowy clothing in bright hues, of course! Watching the runways, one couldn’t help but notice that geometric prints and color-blocking are making a big splash as well.

Next year’s fashions will be all about flow and movement. Spring will be the time to ditch structured and heavily textured fabrics in favor of lighter blends that blow in the breeze. Ditch your tailored clothing and reach for blouses, skirts, and loose-flowing pants to create a spring wardrobe that is moveable, bright, and lighter than air. Replace your stiff denims and plush velvets with mesh, chiffon, lace, and jersey cottons.

When it comes to next season’s color palette, brighter is better. Gone are neutral shades of tan, taupe, green, and beige, replaced by shades of turquoise, orange, magenta, and lime. No matter which way you looked, it was clear there was no shortage of brilliant hues in the fabrics of spring and summer.

Geometric prints are making a comeback in a major way. From squares, to diamonds, and even abstract shapes, a number of spring’s outfits featured unique designs and interesting patterns. Zigzags, polka dots, and squares—all in a number of bright hues—were seen all over the runways.

Next season’s fashions are this season’s food for thought. In anticipation of Spring and Summer 2012, we would all be well-served to go with the flow (we’re talking fabrics here!), and embrace color, pattern, and lively detailing.
