5 S/S 2011 Trends I'm Loving!

After Xmas comes the massive January sales. I look forward to these every year as soo many bargains are to be had. I already know what items i'll be looking out for and they are all s/s 2011 trends. This post also ties in nicely with Day 2 of Problogger's 31 Days to a better blog which i've just started to work my way through. It really is essential reading for all bloggers. Day 2 is making a list post so here I'll be listing my 5 top s/s 2011 trends which is also my shopping list for the sales. What a multitask-er I am!

1. Lace

Lace just reminds me soo much of romance. I love the classic look of it and I'd love to find lace dresses like the ones above. I'd like one in black AND white. Black seems a little more edgy to me while white is ultra feminine.

2. Biker

I love biker jackets. I already own a grey cropped one and now I'm craving a studded black one. These jackets go with pretty much everything - with a pretty dress for an edgier look, with a pair of skinny jeans, with shorts and tight and paired with a flowing skirt. Soo many choices that's why I have to have one. Ideally I'd like the one above (its from Topshop).

3. Clogs.

They're not a new trend per se as clogs were big news in 2010. But they will still e on trend for 2011. If I can find a pair that aren't sky scraper high I will be buying them. That's the problem when your so tall most of the lovely shoes are very high and I don't need the extra height.

4. Kitten Heels

I can't tell you how happy I am that these are back in fashion. As I said before I've been craving some lower heeled stylish shoes and now that they're back in fashion I'll have a chance of finding some. Yay! Schuh do some really nice ones so I'll be visiting there with my spending money. Kitten heels are very mad men - esque which is definitely a good thing in my book.

5. Tassels

Tassells are going to be everywhere in 2011. From belts to tops, jewellery and of course shoes. I already own a tasseled belt which I love by the way and now i want some tasseled shoes or boots. Can you tell I have a thing for shoes? What woman doesn't?

So what trends are you coveting for next spring? Will you be doing a whole load of shopping in the January sales? Have any of you bloggers completed probloggers 31 DBB challenge?



  1. Lace is one of my favourite all time trends. I have a white lace dress which I can't wait to wear next season.

  2. These are great trends...love the dresses! I have a little black lace dress that I just love. I especially like the white dress with black tights...makes it a little less sweet.
