Spring and Summer Unwrapped

*McQueen S/S 2011

New year, new season.  I know i've been posting a lot about the new year, but there really is so much to cover.  

The S/S are unravelling in stores all over the country as we speak and thanks to ELLEs supplement: The Runway Edit, I can tell you the main looks you'll be needing this summer.  

The 10 key trends you'll need to know about are;
1. 70s - Bellbottoms, butterfly collars and loud colours.
2. Colour - The bolder the better.
3. Oriental - Kimono's and Cheongsams galore.
4. The longer the better - Midis and maxis were a hit on the runway.
5. Minimalism - For those who can't pull off colour... Everyday.
6. Print - Floral is a given, but try the new 'scene' prints.
7. Sporty Chic - Tracksuits with a twist. 
8. Erogenous Zones - Whack those pins out.
9. Glam Rock - Channel your inner Mark Bolan.
10. Romance - Pastels and lace.

This seasons key pieces for your wardrobe are;
- Wide Trousers
- Sheer Blouses - New Look do some great ones in an array of colours, if you can't quite afford YSL.
- Platform Wedges
- Neon Totes
- White Shirts - Topshop are saints for these.
- Trouser suits - H&M have some great fitted blazers along with matching trousers this season, to save you saving up for a Stella McCartney.
- Lace Dresses
- Longer Skirts
- Slip Dresses
