Season after season, we let ourselves become seduced by different trends, changing our wardrobe to adapt to the fads that designers and fashion forecasters propose. Some of these trends stay in the marketplace, while others become obsolete. Nonetheless, there are a few classic items that regardless of any fashion trend remain appreciated. And one of these trends for spring/summer 2011 is not a specific trend at all – it’s a color.
White. Despite it’s simplicity and pale chromatic value, this color continues to be bold and exceptionally versatile. And while this trend is not subjective to any certain shape or version, this soft palette is open for interpretation. White is the bona fide hue of the season, and it’s popping up on runways everywhere – especially for spring, demonstrating that this week’s Fashionista is ahead of the pack. Wearing a black and white houndstooth coat, adjustable buttoned-knee boots, and a fringed white crochet top,she is the perfect example of romantic white meets charismatic black. Designer Alexander Wang offers this tint in several style combinations for spring 2011- such as all-white slip dresses, ivory kimono jackets, and even parachute pants. Another designer, Thakoon Panichgul, also has a white ready-to-wear collection that is flouncy, whimsical, and just downright playful.
