It's here ..Spring 2011, so what does your wardrobe look like this season?

This spring-summer gear up for a trip back to the nostalgic, glamorous '70's, yet again! There is something about the 70's fashion which is so youthful, with its  free-spirited bohemian air and glamorous look , that so appeals to me. In part, it is nostalgia for our generation as well, having seen our moms and aunts in those flowing maxis, bell-bottoms, over-sized tinted glasses and of course Zeenat Aman swaying sensuously to Dum Daro Dum:-)

From the runways of Guccis to the look-book of top hi-street brands like Topshop and H&M, we have seen the 70's inspired trends...and here's a quick snap-shot of what I found interesting and worth shopping for.

Flowy maxis---This is one trend the boho in me loves...loose, carefree yet stylish. The twist in trend this season is that maxis go sheer...so go play peek-a-boo!...and the fabrics are slinky, glamorous,diaphanous,shimmery..!Love, love,love!!


Flared legs and bell-bottoms----So, finally it is "skinny" no more!! Before you raise a manicured eyebrow, well, skinny silhouette is kind of here to stay but good news for those who are bored of it is that you can spice up your wardrobe with some "Flare":-).(sigh of relief!!) Some of it we saw even in 2007-08...but this season is not about the
baggy ones at all. I love this picture on left...so very 70's spirit!
While we experiment with trouser hems this season, (and give the "skinny" a run for its money), it is natural to see wide-legged pants as well.Sharp, tailored and high to mid-waist is the look. Though a fashionable trend, its not favoured by most of us for various reasons.
I personally prefer its resort-y interpretation, the Palazzo pants, which is also a key trend of the season. Go lounge around in a drapey jersey number or sizzle in a sexy sheer one! Get the edgy look, pair it with platforms and a floppy hat!!

Organic Pallazos

Dior Sp'11

 Jump-suits-- They are in...they are out..is what we have been hearing over past couple of years now....well, this season they are HERE again! In all lengths, from almost hot-pants lengths to full-length, these one-piece wonders will hog the lime-light. From play-suits to jump-suits, printed to solid tones...all variety and hues!

So, girls, check your wardrobe...complement and supplement...and go shine in the spring sun in all that's beautiful and stylish!!!

Watch this space for more....!
