I LOVE lace, lace anything and everything; there's something so ethereal and romantic about it, and reminds me of days gone by.
This season we've seen lace in various forms: tops, shorts, dresses, clutches, and even in jewellery. It was left to the individual whether the lace detailing on said pieces were emphasized or downplayed (although, why would you want to do that?!?). If your style leaned toward the girlie side, a lace dress with long pearl necklaces would have been a great option for a night on the town; however, if you prefer an edgier look, lace shorts worn with a graphic tee, leather jacket, and motorcycle boots would have been more up your alley. Lace, whatever you decide to do to/with it, is a good thing in my book...always!!!
The "Fanny" top by Joie was an instant bestseller at the store, and my absolute favourite piece all season...I've got mine, did you get yours???
Jessie: Colour & Printed Denim
Denim is a staple in all of our wardrobes, from skinnies to flares we can never get enough. This year the bright coloured, and printed denim seen on numerous celebrities and runways, made denim all the more exciting. I think this is such a fun way to add colour to your wardrobe. Just pair with a white tee or tank and you're ready to go. The difficulty lies in deciding which color, or print to choose (I love them all).
I know some of you ladies have been a little resistant to try this trend (it can be a little shocking seeing yourself in neon pink jeans for the first time), but as 2012 approaches, I think it's time to embrace the neon colors, and leopard prints a like. I don't think this trend is going anywhere, and as the year progresses the trend will only continue to evolve (think houndstooth & Ikat printed jeans, both of which we WILL be receiving come Spring).
Paige: Animal Print
There's no doubt about it, animal print made a lasting impression on this year's fashion world, and became a great trend in 2011.
All the a-list celebrities seemed to incorporate animal print into their daily fashions, from a full on animal printed dress to just a hint of this pattern on their shoes. This trend is incredibly easy to wear; you can wear a variety of colored animal print, as much or as little as you would like (although I do think less is more in this case), you can even mix animal prints! Best of all though is that this look can easily be dressed up or down, making it easy to go from day to night! Because of this easy to wear, and surprisingly edgy, yet elegant look, I have a feeling that this trend will not be saying goodbye at the end of 2011!
Time to show off your wild side!
