It's a Spring dream!!!
Psychedelic furs made a statement on the runways for Fall 2011. Vibrant tones like pink, red, and teal highlighted the collars and trims of coats and dresses. Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Celine presented these opulent plush furs.
No man haters here! Borrow your boyfriends blazer for the night. Say goodbye to the little black dress, and hello to the little black jacket. Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, and Jason Wu, showed these sleek tux's on the runways for fall.
Spring 2011 was all about the 70's, this Fall it's all about the 60's... does that mean winter will be trending the 50's? Who knows, but white stockings, cocoon-y silhouettes, and T-strap pumps are here to stay.
Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, Stella McCartney, and just about every other designer had these dashing dots strut down the runways. Mix and match different dotted patterns to make a trendy statement this fall.
Bundle up in your Parka because it's the new "Statement Coat". Wear them with pants, skirts, even your evening gowns! It's perfect for the brutal weather in the city- and it's never been so stylish.

Spring Trend Report
Neon colors graced the runways for spring 2011. Colors like electric blue, neon yellow, and citrus pink. Designers Jil Sanders, Haider Ackermann, and Aquilano.Rimondi set the trend for brights and bolds.
Whimsical and sweet lace will always be (in my opinion) a spring essential. Designers like Ralph Lauren had a romantic take on lace this season. Dolce & Gabbana had intricate details in each piece of clothing, caressing the woman's body beautifully. Other designers such as Collette Dinnigan and BCBG Maz Arzia had lace peaking through their collections for 2011.
Blumarine, Alexander McQueen, and Gareth Pugh, really went above and beyond when it comes to prints and patterns. I saw everything from cheetah to floral to just plain crazy mix-and-match! It was very eccentric, but somewhat refreshing to see some extravagant prints hit the runway. Other designers like Banana Republic, and Christian Dior worked in some floral prints to their collections as well.
Marc Jacobs calls it the "Yves Saint Laurent seventies". Peasant blouses, and electric colors really set the trend of the seventies for spring 2011. Some of the designers were Marc Jacobs, Gucci, and Emilio Pucci.
Flowy gowns billowed on the runways this season. Designers like Lanvin, Badgley Mischka, and Elie Saab took feminine to a whole other level. Fabrics like chiffon and crepe are must's for spring!
