When it comes to fashion, trends seem to come around again and again, but tweaked to make them modern. Let’s look at four fashion trends for the summer of 2011.
The ’70s Are Back
One of the trends you’ll see coming round the bend are flashbacks of the 1970s. It’s all about the sophisticated looks found 40 years ago. For this trend, you’ll see earthy colors such as browns, tans, greens, etc. and long flowy dresses. You’re also sure to see high-waisted pants with the iconic bell bottoms. For a night out on the town, you’re sure to see long gowns of shimmering material with deep necklines.
Along with the sophistication of the ’70s comes the prim and proper fashion of the 1960s. This does not include the miniskirts of the era, but just the full skirts and dresses that create that housewife look.
Also making a comeback this summer are jumpsuits, whether with pants that go all the way to your ankle or ones with shorts. This includes sophisticated jumpsuits that are tailored and made to be worn to the office. Jumpsuits will be seen by day in corporations, in the afternoon with casual versions being worn for casual activities, and at night where they will be dressed up and ready to hit the town.
Pleats are being seen on the runways of fashion week this year. Many are in the form of dresses, including sheer materials. For summer, you’ll see lightweight materials being used for these pleated outfits.
These are just some of the fashion trends you’ll see this summer.
