NYC weather cannot make up its mind, and as a result, neither can we. Winter clothes or spring clothes? That is the question. Spring fashion is starting to appear more and more on the streets of NYC, and one of these trends is making a bold entrance. Literally. As we predicted for the Spring '11 trends, orange (tangerine to get specific) is the next big color coming our way. Nail polish is a great way to incorporate this color into an outfit (as seen on Vanessa Hudgens) and a subtle way to transition the color.
Tangerine lip color is another great way to master this color and is starting to appear more and more. For those of you risk takers, orange dresses are a great new trend and a fantastic way to stay up beat on those gloomy days we've been seeing in NYC.
Going native is a staple trend that resurfaces time and time again; hence, the return of the fringe. Fringe purses make a bold statement that we hear loud and clear this season. This playful accoutrement adds texture to any outfit, and accentuates the teasing nature of a piquant fashionista. Its boho chic appeal speaks to an earthy vibrance that is embraced by celebrities such as Ashley Greene and Fergie.
To achieve an effortless look, rock an oversized fringe purse alongside dark denims with a sheer sleeveless top and flats. Taking day to night is as simple as trading in your oversized purse for a cute fringe clutch and a pair of decadent stilettos. Here are a few of our picks!

From the runway:
The LWD dominated the spring 2011 ready-to-wear runway shows, most notably Dolce & Gabbana's. Jill Stuart’s take on the LWD included structured silhouettes mixed with ruffles and frills. Azzaro’s show-stopping LWD encompassed a crystal bodice and a tired white silk skirt both united by a large black bow. Monique Lhuillier’s LWD designs were just angelic. Some other LWD designers included Derek Lam, Chanel, and Alexander McQueen (which is in the hands of the deserving Sarah Burton who took over for the late McQueen).
2. For the "everyday" girl: Abercrombie, ‘Kylie’ dress ($68 at Abercrombie)
Fashion moves fast; do not get left behind. The LWD is the season's hottest trend, but it may become your fierce new closet staple.
For the fourth year in a row, Scarlett Johansson returns yet again as the face of Barcelona-based brand MANGO. The Modernist Resort photo shoot took place at La Ricarda House in El Prat de Llobregat, Barcelona.
The Spring 2011 line consists of simple silhouettes made to stand out with bright colours and contrasts in the designs. Long skirts in both narrow pencil and full styles are both featured in the high-energy line. The colour palette consists of yellow, mint green, watermelon, and nude and tan shades, but there’s also added flair created by the muted-gold fastenings in many of the pieces, as well as the frequent touches of bright red, orange, yellow, and blue.
Hemline’s rise and hemline’s fall. Over the last few seasons, we have worn skirts anywhere from mid-thigh to on-the-knee. But mid-calf?
With the return of ladylike dressing, three-quarter-length skirts are back in style. Various designers showcased the trend this season, including Calvin Klein, Chanel, Proenza Schouler, and Rodarte.
Chloé showed the new skirt style in both structured and loose-fitting fabrics. A delicate, beige ‘A’ line, for example, was combined with a fitted, slightly iridescent top and tomato red ballet pumps to make the perfect ode to sophistication. Prada went bold, with skirts that were fitted and adorned with stripes in shades of orange, jade, and indigo, and accented by neon nouveau-baroque prints. A completely unique look, but certainly not one for the faint hearted!
Like Natalie Portman in Black Swan, the virginal White Swan, Nina Sayers, breaks from reality as she becomes the Black Swan. That is what Chanel’s spring 2011 show was-a break from reality. Lagerfeld displayed a magnificent dreamlike struggle between principal and style that was clearly intertwined within the fibers of his fashions. Vexing but coy, the collection flirted with boldness in its sequined leggings, spiderweb embroidery, and luxe chiffon's. The models were more than just pretty faces wearing ballet flats, they were walking canvas’s of Lagerfeld’s latest masterpiece.
Whether it's tweed suit separates from the 40s, a cardigan sweater from the 50s, or the short shimmery dresses of the iconic 60s, popular looks from the past have come back to haunt us. These are friendly ghosts however, as one could potentially wear any trend from some of history's most influential style eras and be in line with current trends for 2010. With so many trends to choose from, it will be nearly impossible for any fashionista worth her salt to look anything less than amazing. The great thing about each of these trends is that they are available in a variety of price ranges. From the designer couture to the bargain Forever 21 shopper and everything in between, anybody can afford these highly coveted styles.
