I know what you’re thinking, and it is a little hard to believe... or maybe not, but ‘70s style high-waist flare jeans are the latest trend for spring 2011. It’s hard to keep up these days – denim trends seem to change as often as celebrities change their hairstyle. But do you know that this was a blast around year 2007? It isn't actually a new trend at all but it is back with an outbreak! It's just that, now... may it be a high-waist skinny, flare or wide leg jeans or may it be a high-waist culottes, pleated or denim shorts or may it be a high-waist in denim, balloon or pencil cut skirt will give you that "it girl" look! Didn't you just notice the word High-Waist? Oh yes! As long as you're sporting a high-waist piece, regardless of the fabric then you are totally IN this season!

Wild Safari

Animal prints could almost be considered a fashion staple since they have been in vogue for so many years. They may crouch or lie low for a while only to bring back and rock the fashion runways with a blast! And let's admit that after all these years, not everyone can pull off an animal print look. We admire & envy those fearless fashionistas who dare to step out and stalk the streets in their cheetah, jaguar, tiger, leopard, giraffe, tiger and zebra prints.

It’s easy to go overboard with animal print clothing and not knowing when to stop can quickly take you from trendy to tacky in a blink. A piece of an animal print attract attention wherever you go and while attention seeking is not a bad thing altogether, you do not want to overdo it and look like a walking zoo, do you?

Now if you're gonna give animal prints a try, it’s a good idea to start small. While Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga can get away with wearing leopard print bodysuits, you may want to scale down your ambitions a bit. A leopard print scarf or a zebra print clutch to go along with a pair of jeans or a solid colored outfit are a good way to start until you're comfortable with it. If still in doubt and needs a little more push then you may want to start with shoes. Whether flats, pumps, boots or stilettos in cheetah, jaguar and giraffe prints are the perfect way to step out into the wild world of animal print fashion.

Color-Block Craze

COLOR-BLOCK -  creating an outfit by putting areas or blocks of solid color next to each other. It can include monotone, bright colors, muted colors, contrasting and complimentary colors. 

Here are some of the Hollywood celebrities who have been infected by this Color-Block Craze.

Celebrity Color-Block Craze

It combines the use of two or more blocks of color in an ensemble. This could be for a top, trouser, skirt, tunic, dress, shoes and to test your guts, even for hair too! i hope it makes a fun read.

It is not a new trend as such but it is definitely back with a BIG BANG!

Don't you just love Skittles? Then any color combination is fantastic if you can pull it off properly. Red, purple and orange sounds mad but will look stunning! Do not combine more than five colors. It’s not that it doesn’t look nice, but you will look very ‘ramp’ish and the reason for this blog is to give the readers what they can wear casually. Moreover, more colors will keep cutting your body shape here and there, making it a not so beautiful sight. Choose what you want to color block and keep the rest of your look simple. For example, if you opt for a colorblocked bag, go easy on the clothes and shoes. You don’t want to look like a walking rubik's cube, do you?

In my opinion, people nowadays are way too liberated even in fashion, so yeah-ANY color will make a good match! For the beginners of this craze, don't be shy to experiment your colored tops and bottoms until you find your way to Color-Block rocking state! 

Here are my own Color-Blocking experiment, as always, for different occasions and different personalities (Do i still need to say this in my future posts? lol)

Naughty Nautical

Red. Blue. White. These color combination gives us a Saucy Sailor Girl, Maritime and Breton Babe look whether in polka dot, stripe or plain with a fresh combination of a brighter blue as well as traditional darkest navy blue and white, or red. In my Nautical Collection i tried to make the outfits where nautical lovers, can find one and wear one, and not the costume type where you can only wear in a pin-up girl themed party. See how your simple stripes shirt or polka dots top can give you a nautical look with the right attitude!

Floral Fever

Floral never goes out of fashion, from dress, tops, skirts, trousers, bags, shoes to accessories. In my Floral Collection i tried to put a bright and punchy prints, in practically every hue, from tangerine to electric blue to more subtle, but still stand-out, painterly petals. A real girl must have at least one floral piece in her closet. Surely, you can never go wrong with these floral pieces styled for different occasions or if i may say, for different personalities.
