Memorial day is just around the corner which means summer is knocking on the door; and we all know fashion changes in the blink of an eye, making hard to keep up sometimes. However, this summer offers some simple trends that are both easy to keep up with and basic enough to keep around even after the trend and season are gone.
1. Color Blocking: Color blocking means blocks of solid colors worn together. You can find great pieces already color blocked for you, such as a maxi dress, making it super easy. For a more challenging style, mix two bright colors for your top half and wear a neutral color on the bottom. Try mixing solid pieces of bright pastel colors – pastels go together fairly easily and always have that fresh look to them.
2. Vivid Brights: Bright eyes, lips, cheeks, nails; you name it and make it bright. Try different shades of the same color on your eyelids, like two tones of turquoise (a hot color right now) to give your eyes a super fun edge.
3. The Maxi: Maxi dresses have remained popular over the years. However, this year they are huge. Since this 70′s style is very hot for 2011, we’ll also be seeing the return of the maxi skirt as well.
