While it will be months before April showers bring May flowers, the Spring/Summer 2011 fashion shows offered a tempting respite from the cold and darkness of the fall and winter seasons. Moreover, if you live in the southern half of the globe, spring is just starting and you’re ready to shed some layers. So how can you take your warm weather inspiration and make it work right now? Here are 5 trends you can rock right now and next year:

Asymmetry: One shouldered or one sleeved dresses, sometimes with intricate draping like this dark purple silk-satin and crepe Helmut Lang number look hot with black opaques and booties now, and equally chic with bare legs and sandals later.

Slouchy Sweaters: They make an ideal layering piece now and will be a casual chic way to top off an ensemble once it's warmer out. Invest in a drapey, slouchy cardigan like this charcoal cable knit style by Vince in a neutral color and you’re bound to wear it long after 2010 is over. Swap the belt for a thick leather one of your own for a different look.
