2011 Top Trends- 70's Glamour

Hey everyone! As the New Year is coming up I decided to talk about the hot trends coming with 2011! This will be in a series of posts up until tomorrow at midnight! I'm going to start by talking about 70's glamour. This is a variation of the famous boho look of the 70's that has been turned into a more sophisticated, elegant, glamorous trend. This includes adding floppy hats, exotic jewels, and high platforms. During the day, the trend is completely different. It includes voluminous silhouettes, earthy color palettes, belted, high-waisted, wide leg pants, silk/satin bow blouses, roll neck sweaters (tucked in, a layered with necklaces or a vest), hot pants and jumpsuits. At night, you might want high sheen fabrics with metallic threads, a ruffled neckline under a brocade blazer or tuxedo jacket, and long, slinky gowns with draping, low necklines or dress slits to get the 70's look. Of course you can't go without accessories! 70's inspired embellishments include leather satchels(day) or small long strapped bag(night), statement belts, thigh-high boots, lots of jewelry! (tons of rings, bold stones, piles of bangles, long pendant necklaces, & strings of beads.) Hairstyles include sleek, longer bobs, lots of bouncy curls, and long flowing hair. I added some pictures, I hope this helps! I'll see you soon with my next 2011 trend!
