It’s all new — or is it old, and now new again?
Just when you thought you would never see feathers, tribal prints and fringe again, they’re back! It’s back to the future for summer 2011.
Women, break out your floppy hat and platform shoes, and ride the wave of 1960s and ‘70s retro.
Bright colors are hot, so if you want to update your look, try a standout bright, such as globe lily yellow, daisy orange, African lily blue or goddess green.
Never miss a local story.
Structure and tight is soooo last season, so don a lacy top for a feminine touch or a floaty skirt for a breezy, carefree look.
And what about the guys? This summer, the choices are endless, from warm pastels in blue, to creamy orange and florals.
Perhaps the most flattering trend of the summer is The Dress!
Try a summer dress in a bold, bright print or bare a shoulder in a soft coral. As long as it has color, you are on trend.
Ethnic, bright cover-ups, a bandeau bikini top and color-block dresses are all trendy and worth repeating from the ‘70s.
Embrace a touch of lace for a feminine, whimsical look.
The hottest trend in accessories is feathers. Try feathered earrings, a feathered necklace or feathered extensions in your hair.
