Sheer Maxi Dresses
Maxi dresses made a big comeback a couple of years ago butquickly died out. For a fresh, street style take on this, gofor the sheer version. You can incorporate and layer pieces that you already have inyour wardrobe underneath to create a variety of different looks.
Punk is definitely not dead, and it most certainly wont go anywhere, as displayed atBalmains 2011 Spring/Summer show. The key is to add just a touch of punklike asmall rip here, a few studs thereso you dont wind up looking like a Halloweencostume or Sid Vicious on a bad day. Try something pretty and feminine, such as amini floral dress and pair it with a leather vest or combat boots to give it an edge.
Alicia Silverstone made the crop top famous back in the nineties when she portrayedher character Cher in the movie Clueless, but the modern version is much morewearable. For 2011, the crop top is about showing off a toned midriff withoutrevealing too much skin, as shown at the Paul and Joe runway show for their Spring/Summer collection. Rock a cropped top with high-waist pants or skirt to show just asliver of tummy. Its classy and sexy.
Tail hem dresses and tops are hot for 2011. Dresses that are cut shorter in the frontand longer in the back are playful and sexy, like the one shown at the Etro Spring/Summer 2011 show.
Wide Leg Pants
The best thing about 70s inspired wide leg pantslike these shown at MarcJacobsis they are flattering for almost all body types. For 2011, wide leg pants areloose fitting, high-waisted and look great with sky high platforms and a crisp whitetop.
