Spring/Summer 2011 trends: Flare jeans and maxi

Nothing has more of the 70’s flavor than flare jeans. Emilio Pucci, Céline and Derek Lam knew it, when they designed their spring/summer collections. This type of jeans is perfect if you want to look taller, but don’t forget to wear them always with heels. Pair them with tops whose length only go down to the waist line or with blouses and a belt, like the picture below.

Flare Jeans

Leave it to Jil Sander (first two models at left) to create the perfect maxi skirts and dresses. Along with bold colors (actually, that is another post to write), this was the major trend on his show. There was no such thing as mini skirts on his show. Every single dress and skirt was touching the ground.

Givenchy (third model), on the other side, didn’t abdicated pants, which were sometimes layered with a sheer maxi skirt and Bottega Veneta (fourth model) also preffered light fabrics to add life and movement to his maxi skirts.

Use the last to outfits as an inspiration.

I will never forget that last year, Abbey Lee Kershaw rocked the maxi skirt when people was only about to start noticing them. She is definitely a trend setter.

Hot supporters of the boho chic style, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been wearing long skirts since forever, but you only know something will be a must-have when Olivia Palermo is seen wearing one.
