Fall/ Winter 2011 Trend Report- Part 4

Trend VIII: Sheer Delight 
Male domination maybe at an all-time fashionable high, but the ladies refused to be sidelined. Lace was chosen to create delicately sumptuous sexiness by Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, Dolce&Gabbana and Rebecca Minkoff. 

While, peek-a-boo tops, see-thru maxis and coquettish dresses featuring netting at the shoulders, gave a novel meaning to the term feminine sensuality.  

Trend IX: New Lengths
There is a famous old question, to what lengths will you got to? Lucky for us, it can be anywhere between the knee and the floor. You can either go the distance and pick team maxi or keep it short and pick team midi. Or better yet, play both sides and enjoy the best of both worlds. This F/W the hemline index is enjoying some serious rise and fall. 

Somewhere between the mini and maxi, rests the lesser known and chosen midi or “tea” length. Originally a 40’s lady-like trend, midi fashion has made an enticing re-appearance. From coats and dresses to pencil, pleated or flared skirts, midis intermingled on almost all the runways.

This huge statement making trend has been sweeping the floors and fashion world alike. A plethora of prints, colours and silhouette to choose from, maxi was seen at Gucci, Antonio Marras, Dolce & Gabbana and Rodarte.

How's a girl to choose between so many oh-so-fab and stunning choices, 'sigh'. So whats gonna be your winter style statement this season? Drop me a line with your thoughts in the comment section.
