Spring 2011: Whats Hot

The New Year is here which means a whole new year full of fresh and hot new fashion. It can be pretty overwhelming with all of these new trends and new takes on older ones. But lucky for you Glik’s buyers and style experts have stalked the streets if LA and New York to bring you the best styles of Spring 2011.

The Bohemian look is making a steady come back this spring with Peasant tops, loose printed dresses and flirty floral.

Anything with a crochet design is also hot for spring. Glik’s had a few fly away sweaters with crochet detail this winter but now it can be found on tops, dresses, vests and more.

Lace is also staying strong for spring, with more of a delicate vintage look instead of the tough black lace of 2010. Flower child is in for spring with these trends.

The dolman top trend that I blogged about previously is continuing on into 2011. We have a ton of brightly colored and striped dolmans in stores right now. These tops will look best with a scarf and leggings for the remainder of the cold months and great with shorts and a necklace for the warm ones.

A little bit of the strong military trend from this past year is finding its way into 2011! At Glik’s we have light canvas and cotton utility jackets for the colder spring mornings and nights. My favorite is by Jack, I can already see myself throwing it over a cute crochet top!

Cozies are kind of like fly away sweaters without sleeves, perfect for the warmer weather of spring. These vests are perfect for the layering look, whether it’s over a dress or jeans and a tank top. Cozies can be that extra layer that takes you from fashionable to fashionista. Sleeveless vests have a similar look to a Cozie and are also a must-have for spring.

The brand Sinful is hot off the city blocks of Los Angeles with tops that are more then your average t-shirt. These edgy shirts display artistic symbols like hearts, crosses, wings ect. and are commonly embelished with stones or metallic detail. Sinful takes your spring jean-and –a-t-shirt to a whole new level.

Mixing knits and woven is also hot for spring. Having a top with knitted detail on top of a classic woven is called “Mixed Media”. This trend takes a classic look and turns it edgy with the blend of two fabrics.

The Cut-Out shoulder trend adds sass to any outfit. Dresses with Cut-Out backs or sides were hot for 2010 but for spring 2011, it’s all about exposed shoulders. Another trend with exposed shoulders are strapless tops. Perfect for the sun in spring and summer. These tops look best over shorts or tucked into a miniskirt. A cute straw fedora would perfect either look.

Speaking of shoulders, one trend that is staying for 2011 is the One-Shoulder. Whether it’s a top or a dress, one shoulder is here to stay. The tops look totally fabulous with skinny jeans and pumps.

Spring means back to basics, with tanks and tees getting pulled out of storage. Update your plain tank top with a Racerback style one. These tanks are perfect for layering under t-shirts and sweaters, or plain with shorts for hotter weather. If your wardrobe is more classic and you need a basic tank or tee Glik’s has a huge selection of Lycra, cotton and lace ones for whatever style you rock.

Stay tuned for more Spring ’11 trends!
