Trend Reporter Liz takes us color by color through Fall 2011.
Are you ready for something really fabulous? Seriously, are you ready? Because the Fall 2011 line is a knockout and I am not just saying that because I work here. (Ok, maybe a little …) Let’s start with a little joy, shall we?
This print offers more than just a palette of turquoise, coral, red and golden yellow on a season-perfect navy ground. It also boasts a whimsical floral pattern we know you love (reminiscent, perhaps, of Purple Punch). We saw an outrageous amount of florals when scouting trends for the season, all in various styles. We chose these colors for our burst of seasonal blooms, and included one element that we think is the bee’s knees (or the snail’s, I suppose, assuming they have knees). We tucked a parade of these cute little shell-bodied friends along the border and lining.
I’m sure you’ve noticed the abundance of animals, birds, insects and other creatures on clothing and interiors in the last several seasons. This trend is a little about connecting with nature and a little about humor, because after all, that cute little snail does make you smile!
Add this pattern to your spring and summer wardrobe by pairing it with a navy or red stripe. Rest assured, those preppy stripes will be moving right into Fall. Feel free to pair it with a neutral-toned blazer or jacket when the weather turns cool, and you’re good to go!
