Move away bodycon dresses! Slouchy is the new sexy. First popularized by Alexander Wang (remember his genius sporty luxe spring/summer collection?), jersey is no longer reserved for athletes but now for fashionistas. With the perfect cut and draping, the fabric is the new definition of 'comfort dressing'. Who could reject comfort and chic at the same time anyway?
It all began from the infamous Mulberry Alexa & Proenza Schouler PS1. From then on, the satchel or schoolboy bag become the No 1 wishlist amongst fashion enthusiasts. The Alexa & PS1 was extremely popular that replicas and similar models were produced by high street brands.
Armadillos & McQueen
One of the pieces that bombarded the blogging sphere. I remember seeing it on everyone's blog when the photos from the show aired up in Style.com.
Mini, Midi, Maxi
All lengths were considered cool in 2010 ! Whether you like it short or long, there are tons of styling ideas to keep your looks interesting. The midi & maxi length is definitely an on-going trend.
They may not be common in Indonesia, but fur is taking a storm in 2010's wintry countries. It is probably the easiest way to look chic within a giant pile of snow.
And soooo 2010 has ended but do we have in hand for 2011? These are the five trends I look forward to. Yes, some of them are repeats from the past, but there's nothing wrong with repeats if they look good right?
Christopher Kane for Burberry SS11
One of the most anticipated RTW collections to hit instore. Burberry's Spring/Summer pieces features some of the best trends for SS2011. Sophisticated edge is probably the best description I could come up with. The collection boasts biker jackets, pops of neon within sea of neutrals, animal prints, lots of leather, and stud-worthy pieces.
One of the most long lasting trend I've ever encountered. Camel was "the" nude color in 2010. As for 2011, we can expect a bigger range of nudes, browns, and all sorts of earthy shades to match all the skin tones available on the planet. Try mixing up neutrals with a pop of neon (ala Burberry Prorsum) for a dash of youth for spring.
Lace Up Boots
They were a big hit in Fall 2010's runway, and we can expect more of these in 2011. Pair lace up wedges for spring and bring those serious combat boots or the classic Doc Marts for winter. Best of all? Lace up shoes don't have to look rugged or tough. Check out McQueen's lace up stilettos (top right hand corner). Aren't they the perfect compliment for a party dress?
Dolce & Gabbana, Spring Summer 2010there were hints of this in Prada's Spring/Summer 2010 show, and turns out, there were more designers jumping into the nightgown as daywear bandwagon. There's something seductive without being slutty when wearing satin, sheer, or airy blouses with the right pieces. Take cues from Rumi of Fashion Toast when you need some jump-start ideas for this trend. She does it the best.
