Angel Cutsforth for Second City Style Magazine
From a look back at the trends for the 2011 spring/summer season, I saw some truly vintage inspired themes running through the shows. You can easily find a vintage substitute by searching on Ebay, etsy or other vintage shopping websites. Hopefully looking at these new trends and their vintage counterparts you’ll agree.
Bright colors are a huge trend this spring/summer. They were seen on a lot of the catwalks and done in different styles by various designers. Think 1960’s Mod versus Madonna’s Material Girl look. I personally love some of the Mad Men style wiggle dresses in fluorescent pinks.
I’ve written about how on trend lace is before, and I’m about to do it again. All over the catwalks lace took many different shapes and guises; blouses, dresses, skirts, etc. But you can find a lot of the same style online. This trend is perfect for the wannabe flapper among you in the style of BCBG Max Azia.
