MR Note: During your last minute shopping for girlfriends (or yourself!) keep an eye out for pieces that fit in with these spring trends so they can wear them in the new year.
Perhaps you’re wondering what I think Spring/Summer 2011’s biggest trend will be… The 70’s baby, all over again! I’m not going to complain, I like the Boho look and it’s always a big seller, especially here in LA where I live. But the 70’s styles are not just peasant blouses and sheer fabrics, they include the glitzy and glam look of places like the legendary Studio 54.
Keep your eye out for your perfect jumpsuit because they will be in stores from Gucci to Forever 21. You can go utilitarian with a cotton version in an ethnic print, or super sexy with a silk neutral color with a plunging neckline. It’s up to you to make the trend your own. I’ve been holding out on jumpsuits for a while, but this time I’ll be on the hunt for the perfect one.
I love diaphanous, flowy, beautifully cut floor length skirts and dresses for the summer. There is nothing like the feeling of walking down the beach with your skirt in the wind, chasing the foam as it rolls back into the sea. It’s fun to accessorize this look with leather sandals, feathers, and floppy brimmed felt hats for the full hippy/Boho look. I can’t wait for this trend to hit in Spring, I’m going to be all over the plentiful options!
