Top 5 Fashion Must Haves For Spring 2011
Spring is officially here! With all of the hottest trends in fashion, it’s difficult to decide which items to invest in. Well, not to fear style savvy ladies, here’s a rundown of the most versatile and stylish fashion items for the warmer months ahead.
1. Wide Leg Jeans
Thanks to the 70s influence in fashion this spring, wide, flare and fuller leg jeans are making a comeback. Thank goodness for the fact that fashion always comes full circle, because many of us probably have a few pairs of wide leg jeans already in our closets. While skinny jeans will continue to be a strong trend, it’s all about creating womanly curves with fuller leg jeans for spring! Dress up your wide leg jeans like Kim Kardashian, with a feminine blouse and a sophisticated belt. Or, go for a more relaxed look like Jessica Alba, with a tank and a colorful scarf!
2. Peasant Top
If you can only buy one fashion item this spring, I’d recommend the peasant top. The easy shape and versatility makes this piece great with shorts, skirts, or pants. And the boho chic flair will make you feel carefree on the hottest spring days. Coming in an array of colors, from simple white and bright chartreuse, to bold prints, a festive peasant top is the ideal addition to every fashionistas spring wardrobe. Take a cue from stylish stars like Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens, who pair soft peasant blouses with skinnies for a cool and casual look.
Nothing says spring than a fantastic pair of wedges! Laidback, hippie chic styles are in for spring, from wedges with wood and cork soles to sandals with woven straps. Add a wedge to your shoe closet and you’ll be good through summer. Easily worn with both casual and dressy outfits alike, you can walk around all day in a wedge as they’re more comfortable than traditional high heels. Jennifer Aniston likes to show off her toned legs with shorts and neutral wedges, while Kate Hudson proves you can still be stylish when running errands with the kids!
4. Envelope Clutch
The must have handbag for spring is the envelope clutch! Slim, sleek and sophisticated, the envelope bag is a classic wardrobe staple that goes with everything. Available in an array of colors for spring, and featuring embellishments from feminine rosettes to rocker inspired studs, there’s definitely a style for everyone. The envelope clutch is also the perfect bag to take you from day to night. For day, wear your bag slung across your body like Miley Cyrus, and at night, tuck in the strap for a sexy clutch like Victoria Beckham!
5. Breastplate Necklace
Statement jewelry is taken to new heights this spring with super sexy, breastplate necklaces! While long, layered chains and necklaces will still be on trend, the pure simplicity of the breastplate necklace will be enough for every fashionista to add one to her jewelry box. A bold combination of mixed metals and medallions, this worldly inspired look is just the right amount of bling to transform any outfit! Jennifer Lopez knew how to rock her brass and crystal Lanvin breastplate necklace, by keeping the rest of her accessories simple!
