David Jones’ Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Trends: What You’ll Be Wearing!

| 8 August , 2011 | Reply

As promised, here’s the trends to look out for this Spring/Summer 2011 season courtesy of David Jones. It’s been a week bursting at the fashion seams after the David Jones SS Fashion Show.  We saw safari, sleek suiting, white on white, bold colour blocking and luxe detailing at the glamourous show headlined by Miranda Kerr.

“This season David Jones’s leading designers have created wearable, beautiful pieces with an explosive use of colour that has truly injected fashion with a renewed energy and fun,” says David Bush, David Jones General Manager Womenswear.

This SS season you can make a modern statement by mixing and matching pops of colour with neutral tones, add a hot pink shirt with a classic navy pencil skirt!  Hot colours to look out for are eye-catching shades of fuchsia, red, yellow, blue, orange and emerald green.

White on white is another big trend for summer, it’s fresh and modern, and the perfect way to get on trend and suits women of all ages. A pair of safari chic white linen pants or a white pleated dress will see you through the whole season.

Safari Luxe is key this SS, look out for animal spots and stripes, cuffed shorts, easy-to-wear utility shirts and various reincarnations of gaming jackets.

In terms of accessories, it‘s all about snakeskin prints, even Megan Gale has snakeskin trending in her SS swimwear collection.

But if you just need a quick hit list of Spring/Summer essentials, check this out and choose your favourites to channel, there’s something for everyone:

Crochet knits: embrace your inner hippie with boho luxe crochet knits with a tribal vibe.

Loose tailoring: the deconstructed summer suit makes a comeback. Relaxed and modern, wear it in white for a lasting summer statement

Slim leg Capri pants: There couldn‘t be a chicer pant style for summer

Bold, Bright Colours: Don‘t be shy— the brighter, the better, it’s all about colour blocking with bold colour choices

The statement dress: The embellished shift is ultra-glamorous

Full skirts: Voluminous, 50s-style skirts make a comeback, giving us some light relief from the leg-barring mini skirt

Dressed up denim: Modern denim looks that will take you from day to night, blue notes are big news for summer
70s-styling influences: From silk head-scarves to layering bangles on your wrists, styling is key to making the 70s look work

Silk and satin separates: Think of these as the building blocks of your wardrobe that‘ll pull everything together

The Feminine Blouse: Reinvented with new detailing. Case in point: Lisa Ho‘s sky blue and gold blouse

The Long Blazer: Great with denim jeans or that special cocktail dress, the longer length is super flattering

Check out the highlights from the show:

And I can’t tell you how much I’m loving DJ’s TVC right now that features Miranda, Samantha Harris and Megan Gale … I love how they have incorporated their past campaigns into this season and evolved and upped their brand ante:

Have fun shopping and dressing this Spring/Summer!
