Top Fashion Trends for 2011

1. That '70s Show—From the wide-leg trouser to the sexiest classic halter top, the '70s are back (again!) in a big way.
2. The Return Of Minimalism—Phoebe Philo started it at CĂ©ine this year, but for 2011 it's all the other silky, simple separates, neutral tones, white-washed palettes, and future-friendly utilitarian details like paramilitary straps that have positioned this trend as a Big One for 2011.

3. Going Long—Dowdy or not, fuller, longer, smarter looking skirts, dresses, and their maxi siblings have been giving minis a major run for their money. Call it a grown-up moment; You can bet your bottom dollar that, come spring, those thighs of yours will be staying nicely undercover. 4. Printed Matter—Even if everyone is copying, we still can't get enough of prints. And spring/summer basically turned up the volume: think bigger, louder, more playful and expressive than ever, from the sweet fruit prints at Suno and Prada to bold animal prints that were...well, everywhere.

5. Block Party—The palette for the season was super intense with bright orange, turquoise, honeysuckle pink, and yellow dominating. A lot of designers played with pairing multiple intense colors together, which provided a beyond bold effect.

6. Pajama Game—Loose and lovely loungewear inspired many a runway with drapey weekend trousers, matching printed tops and bottoms, and nightgown-esque slip dresses. While this might be one of the tougher trends to pull off, it offers an interesting nod to the shift in modern sportswear...sexy, casual, and very appealing.
