Spring 2011 Fashion Must Haves *updated 1-8-11

Although it’s not yet fall 2010, the fashion report for spring 2011 is here!  Light flowy 

fabrics and flowery prints are always fashionable for fall.  I’m really digging the “little blue dress” as an alternative for the little black dress.  Scroll over or click on the underlined designers names to view a preview!   To view the full report with pictures scroll to the bottom of the page for the link.  After the length the report is a downloadable pdf.   If you found this report helpful please give me a rating and i’d love to hear your feedback too about the new trends!! I love comments!

ADAM by Adam Lippes

The Lava leather apron dress – it’s the perfect union of hard and soft

Adrienne Vittadini by Kristiina Salminen Our Blue color-blocked water printed dress worn belted – it is so effortlessly chic and looks amazing on everyone

Badgley Mischka A Sparkly Rose macramé cocktail dress – sophisticated and young

Betsey Johnson A kiddie romper in Butter-cup Yellow

Bibhu Mohapatra A cotton/silk short shift day-to-night dress with cutouts and Beige tulle sleeves in Cerulean Blue is a must!

Carlos Campos Our button down wrap dress in Rosa

Carmen Marc Valvo The little Blue dress

Catherine Malandrino A watery, long draped dress or a high-waisted palazzo soft pant with a basket weave fitted T

Charlotte Ronson Spanish floral spaghettistrap dress with ruffled handkerchief hemline

Christian Siriano A breadth of silhouettes including flowing wide-legged trousers, safari shorts, jackets, kimono sleeves, structured cocktail dresses and light flowing evening gowns

Cynthia Steffe by Shaun Kearney A sexy, silk laser-cut off-the-shoulder dress in a vibrant shade of Pink is a modern take on boho!

Ella Moss by Pamela Protzel Scott The maxi skirt in silk chiffon prints and washed cotton voiles – this silhouette pairs nicely with loose casual tees

Erin Fetherston A kimono-inspired evening jacket in a floral print featuring shades of Mint, Parrot Green, Black and highlights of Ivory and Lavender – I like the idea of this piece styled over a little Black mini-dress

James Coviello A floral print skirt in any combination of our prominent colors

Lela Rose A scribble cotton print dress with a drop-away sleeve that has every color in a Crayola box

Monique Lhuillier A shimmery cocktail dress with ombre sequins

Nanette Lepore This spring is about convertible dressing – jackets that double as shirts, outerwear as light as a dress.

Nary Manivong One-shoulder corset wrap dress in Sea Foam, and the fisherman pants in the diamond print will look great with a Black or Nude strapless wrap corset top

Pamella Roland by Pamella DeVos A draped, one-shoulder printed silk chiffon dress with a braided strap detail – the Mediterranean Blue print is refreshing for any spring/summer event because it can take you from day into evening

Ports 1961 by Fiona Cibani A printed kaleidoscope jersey draped gown representing the spectrum of our color story

Rebecca Minkoff The Rebecca Minkoff morning-after bag – it’s been a staple in every collection and this year is available in a Buttery Cream with Navy piping

Rebecca Taylor Our tea-length, smockedwaist skirt, in Kelly Green of course!

Tadashi Shoji Silk chiffon wave ruffle cocktail dress in Ice

Tibi It’s not an item for spring, it’s a headto-toe look – an Ochre top with matching Ochre pant

Tommy Hilfiger The tennis skirt is a fresh, quirky take on a staple American pastime.

Tracy Reese A classic Tracy Reese silk blouse in Nude

VPL by Victoria Bartlett The print pleated dress suspended on a sweatshirt neck – the pleating plays so well with the linear print inspired by Ghada Amer’s artwork

Yoana Baraschi A Picasso-inspired sailor stripe knit blazer in Shell and Navy brings a whimsical side to any mix while also looking ‘90s West Side grunge when worn over a leopard or floral print.
