When Shakespeare wrote ‘Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?’ in his famous sonnet, he could have very well been talking about 2011’s Resort fashion trends. This year’s looks evoke a femininity that ranges from charming country girl, Parisian romantic to 50s pin up sexy.
Country Girl Charm
You know how a trip to the country side always made you feel refreshed? That’s what your wardrobe should do for you this summer. One of the emerging resort trends in summer outfits is an homage to the girly innocence we once had (and always will have). Take a cue from Isaac Mizrahi’s Resort 2011 collection which is built on the easy-going charm of Southern Belles, using light fabrics that flow.
Like this knee-length shift dress in gingham print which you can pair with a simple cape cod bracelet, straw cowboy hat and cute cowboy boots to bring out the Southern Belle in you.
France is synonymous to fashion. As one of the world’s fashion hubs, French fashion has had a major influence on every woman’s sense of style. For 2011 Resort trends there’s a resurgence of Parisian inspired looks for summer outfits that plays on simple and chic aesthetic that the French are known for. Pastel is the palette wherein which summer outfits like Christian Dior’s above-the-knee tiered dress with flower prints cinched at the waist with a lavender sash and Louis Vuitton’s pink silk knit dress.
Front and Centerfold
Sexy. That’s the perfect adjective for pin up fashion. A throwback to days when women aren’t afraid to celebrate their curves. Pair cigarette pants with Marc Jacob’s silk twill halter with a keyhole neckline in polka dots print or soak up the sun in a white bikini with black polka dots. Betty Page hair and bright red lipstick will complete this fearlessly 50s look for your summer outfits.
