With the coming of the new year, also comes new trends in fashion and as we say good-bye to all that was in 2010 (a lot of hot pants, knee high socks, lace, leather and cut out clothing) we now say hello to the fashion trends and tips for 2011. Below are our top 10 tips for best fashion advice that can be given to anyone during any time of the year.
1. Choose the clothes that suit your body
No matter what trendsetting or fashion forward clothing you purchase if it will not compliment your body-then you'd better put it back on the store rack!
2. On Jewelry: Less is not always more
(For Men) You must not over accessorize, do not wear more than 3 pieces of jewelry. Silver is becoming popular these days so you might want to invest.
(For Women) Less is not always more especially during the summer, you can accessorize you summer outfits with big and bold accessories. Wooden beads and citrus colored bangles are a good sight during the summer.
3. In the winter: Accessorize!
During the cold weather add a little pop of color to the weather, you can accessorize with sweaters and scarves, ensure it matches your outfit though! Try to mix and match things, if you are wearing tight fitting jeans then a big sweater will be a good contrast and will compliment your slender legs.
4. Keep your shoes and belts looking brand new:
Shoes and belts can catch the eye of other people so make sure that you invest in a good pair of shoes and a nice belt and make sure that they are regularly kept clean and shiny - there's nothing worse than a pair of muddy boots combined with a smart dress!
5. If you look the part then you have to smell the part.
There is no use in looking great if you smell something like the cat dragged in. So if you take time and invest in what you will be wearing and what you will look like then make sure that you throw in some good perfume, cologne or after-shave.
6. Skinny jeans are still in!
Yes! Skinny jeans are still in! Especially with Katy Perry singing "Let you put your hands on me In my skin-tight jeans", so don't throw out your skinny jeans yet! Nothing is as complimentary as a good pair of high-waisted, ankle exposing, skinny jeans.
7. The Ballerina is on center stage!
With movies like 'The Black Swan' earning a buzz, ballet-inspired fashion is sure to make its own buzz in the fashion industry. From ballet flats to ensembles inspired from tutus and leotards, we will be seeing a lot of ballerinas this year.
8. Summer Fashion tips:
In the summer be sure to wear loose fitting clothes that are made of natural fabrics and are in light colors, printed kaftan might just be making a wave this year. For a little style and functionality, a wide-brimmed hat will keep those harsh UV rays away and will also keep you looking elegant.
9. Add color in the winter:
Spring colored sweater should add some color during the pale winter. Make sure you wear bright printed winter clothes-just so you won't blend in with all the snow.
10. Check online!
For the latest in fashion news and trends, always check online, this is the most updated source of fashion information. Also try to look and see what celebrities are wearing these days. For one thing, everyone and I mean everyone will be looking into what the future princess Kate Middleton will be wearing-so try and see what's she's wearing and buy it quick before the stores run out!
