2011 Fashion Trends

Wednesday, September 07, 2011
A new year brings new fashion trends…but only for a few months until something else becomes hot again and then you have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe because the magazines say so, am I right? Well, I’m not a magazine but I have done my research to bring you the best trends of 2011 to keep you stylin’ for the rest of the year.

Biker Chic

This trend has been in and out of the fashion industry…but mostly in. I love this trend in moderation. If you are head-to-toe in biker gear, you probably belong on a motorcycle instead of looking like you just stepped off the runway. You can integrate this trend into your wardrobe with a motorcycle-inspired jacket and pairing it with your frilliest and girliest dresses to offset the tough girl in you.

60s Full Skirt

All the modest ladies can shout for joy because modesty is IN this year! (But it should always be in!) The newest skirt trend has more fabric and a longer hemline! The secret to wearing this trend is to have the skirt at your waist to create the illusion of a longer silhouette and a more exaggerated hour-glass figure. Make sure your skirt is full enough to twirl in. What? You don’t twirl in your skirts??


I am seeing lace everywhere and I love it! This trend turns any item of clothing delicately feminine. When shopping for this trend, make sure the lace isn’t sheer or see-through as that is also a popular trend right now. You could always layer sheer lace pieces over basic pieces in your closet to keep modest. Dress down your lacey pieces with more casual items such as your baggy boyfriend jeans or worn-in boots.

Wide Leg Jeans

They’re back!! This trend is great for all shapes and sizes as long as they fit you correctly! I love this trend because for once it makes my short Asian legs look longer. The secret is to have a longer inseam and wear heels underneath! But I don’t think it’s really a secret anymore since I just told you. Get a darker wash to make it a classic staple that you can wear after 2011 is long gone. Pair these jeans with fitted tops to complement the wider legs.


We see this trend again and again on the runway. You know why? Because it’s a classic!!! ..especially navy and white stripes. Best part about stripes? They’re great for pattern mixing. Stripes and florals are great together. It’s easy and subtle and makes it look like you’ve spent hours picking our clothes beforehand but you didn’t because you read this article in five minutes instead.

  4. Wide leg jeans and stripes r my favorite!

  5. Fall is my favorite clothing season – layering, boots, cozy sweaters... I think summer is my least favorite. I'm glad that stripes are still "in" though I think I'll be wearing stripes long after they are no longer "fashionable!" I feel like wide leg jeans/pants make my short legs look even shorter, so I will be skipping that trend, and while I like the look of full skirts I always find that there is a wind hazard.

  6. i am stoked for all of these trends!!! let the season begin :)


  7. Great article.

  14. I LOVE wide leg jeans. I too am a shorty and I love how they look with chunky heels...to make me look taller. And...for some reason until the last year or so, I would not be caught dead in a stripe but, now I think I own at least 4 shirts with stripes. :)

  15. Wide leg is sooo back! I'm excited cause I actually saved a pair from a long time ago! And yes...lace lace lace, I have one lace dress and I just want to keep buying lace everything!

  16. I didn't know stripes ever went out of trend! They are a classic in my wardrobe. I'm loving lace this year. I don't own much but it's so gorgeous!!

  17. Wide leg jeans are in? Aww, man. I JUST finally bought a pair of skinny jeans. Dag nab it.


  18. As an aspiring fashion designer, I keep up with trends to get inspired on what I want to create. However, I don't really allow the "fashion experts" to dictate my closet. I try to buy classic pieces so I won't have to spend a lot of money on clothing. It's funny because a lot of the newer trends are things that I wear anyway. 

    For example, the whole wide leg jeans thing has always been a staple in my closet. Skinny jeans aren't very modest. They are so tight that you may as well not wear pants at all.

  19. I'm glad about the biker look being in, my leather jacket blends in perfectly heh.

  20. wow! Full skirts, they perfectly match my monthly theme of Sew Skirt September. yay
