Ruffles, metallic, statement jewelry, ball gowns, and lace will all be hot for evening wear in 2011. These are my top four picks for fashion trends for 2011.
Ruffles and Metallic for Evening Wear 2011
Ruffles and Metallic styles for 2011 will allow a little bit of the early 90’s to be revisited in these fun and sophisticated styles.
This dress at Barney’s, the Lanvin Metallic Ruffle Dress for $1,990.00 is a perfect example of the hottest evening dress trends for 2011.
The draped bold dress says here is a woman of power and style. The bold dress is sure to highlight the boldest part of your personality.
Statement Jewelry for 2011This necklace at Saks Fifth Avenue, The Oscar de la Renta Rectangular Bead Bib Necklace for $490 captures the statement jewelry trend perfectly. The centerpiece is pink, grey and white acrylic and glass pieces, and it ties around the neck with a black silk ribbon. Add this piece to a classic white or black dress, and let the jewelry do the talking. The brilliant cut of the glass reminds me of a brilliant skyscape. The light colors tone it down to make this bold piece a bit more inviting. A good piece of statement jewelry allows you to flaunt your personality, and have a little bit of fun. Statement jewelry will be hot for 2011. Dark Ball Gowns for 2011 Ball gowns are back for evening wear in 2011. The Peacock Ball Gown, at Nieman Marcus for $550 will make everyone look stunning. The black and dark green make for a modern ball gown that will turn heads. The colors add the right amount of mystery and intrigue. Ball gowns have a natural flattering look to bring out the best assets in any woman. The dark colors give this timeless shape a modern edge.
Lace for 2011 Lace adds maturity, playfulness and mystery to any wardrobe. The Tadashi Shoji Off-Shoulder Lace Gown for $498.00 at Bloomingdale’s, is the right combination of conservative style with trendy lace. The jagged straight neckline highlights the symmetry and beauty of the person wearing this dress. Lace intertwines a historical feel with a slight lingerie feel. You have to have a conservative style with lace to avoid giving off the wrong feel. The conservative neckline, shoulders, and length of the dress add just enough conservative design to counteract the lace. The combination of the conservative design and the naughty lace make for a simply stunning dress.
