Now that we've shared with you some trends we could live without in the next year, here are some we wouldn't mind staying!
1. Colored denim was HUGE this year! The brighter the better! From Miley Cyrus to Kim Kardashian, bright colored denim was all the rage! Paired with a a leather jacket, a tank top, or a blazer- this look was great day or night. Favorite colors were bright red and blue, but shades of green, yellow, and pink were also popular! The look wasnt limited to women either, Justin Bieber was even spotted with red pants at the VMA’s!
2. Mad Men has not only coaxed many viewers with its witty storyline it has revitalized 1960’s fashion for both men and women. The ultra feminine timeless classic look found its way back to stores, even resulting in a whole Mad-Men inspired fashion line at Banana Republic. Sweaters, Pearls, and Pencil Skirts weren’t just for the office anymore!
3.Neutral and Nude shades were the new black this year! From neutral tops to nude heels - these flattering hues were easy to pair with any outfit! Natural and light, the colors looked great on all skin shades. The neutral and nude trend could be found in solid, lace, and sheer patterns from the runway to the red carpet even to casual street wear.
4. Platforms came back!! A personal favorite for my flat-footed self, this trend was a savior for me this year! The look was found everywhere from summer wedges to evening pumps, this chunky look was stylish and fun! The chunky platforms elongated the legs and were a great addition to any outfit.
5. Although the whole Lady Gaga, or should we say Joe Calderone, look may not be for everyone, androgynous clothing was another huge hit this year. Many male-inspired trends were entering the women’s fashion world. Tuxedo jackets, “boyfriend watches”, button down blouses, cigarette pants, and vests all were great trendy additions to the 2011 wardrobe.
