Fashion Forecast: 2011 Trends

Dec 20, 2010

The fashion forecast for 2011 looks colorful, lacy, neon and slightly punk and biker style with a touch of 1970s thrown in (not all at the same time of course!). Now that 2010 is coming to a close, it’s time to look ahead for what’s going to be trendy for next year! Fashion always comes in cycles so don’t worry - you don’t have to throw away your plaid clothing, military jackets, faux fur or velvet dresses! Before you know it, the snow will be melting, the temperatures rising and it will be time for some spring and summer shopping again! Be one step ahead and check out Kidzworld’s guide to the upcoming trends to look for in 2011!


1970s Style

It’s hard not to love everything retro! The 1970s were such a stylish and cool era for fashion! Think disco style, flare jeans, platform shoes, high-waisted and wide-legged pants, fitted turtleneck sweaters and vests layered with beaded necklaces. Watch movies set in the 1970s or ask your mom or aunt what they used to wear back then - if you’re lucky you can get some real-life fashion inspiration from looking at any old pictures they have!

Vibrant Colors and Neon

Even though spring is a few months away, it’s nice to know that vibrant colors and even neon are set to be in next year! One of the most popular colors that all the fashion editors predict will be 2011’s hottest hue is posey pink! Not quite hot pink but not baby pink - this bright shade of pink flatters every skin tone and is just the mood lift our winter wardrobes will be needing soon! Neon colors are not for the faint of heart - you won’t be blending into the crowd if you sport neon green, orange and yellow! If you’re not quite into the idea of a neon clothing - try neon accessories like some fun bangle bracelets!

Biker and Punk

Say goodbye to military for the time being and say hello to the new biker and punk styles for 2011! When we use the word “biker”, we’re not suggesting you have to look like you ride a motorcycle and wear head to toe leather! Channel the biker look with faux leather, stud detailing, motorcycle style boots and cool graphic t-shirts. Try a studded black bangle bracelet and earrings! Punk style is all about skinny black jeans, funky style t-shirts, Doc Marten style boots and messy, undone hair!

Dear Dish-It in the forums

LostintheAbyss
Dear Dish-it, This is really strange for me to write to you because I have never done anything like this before but I need an outside POV from my situation and I need help. These days, I don't know what I'm doing or what tomorrow is going to bring. But before I get into how I feel, I am going to explain my situation a bit first. So let's get started. My family is a family of 6 though my oldest sibling has left the house to live else where because he's 26 years old. Anyway, I argue a lot in my family in fact there's fights everyday either with me or just between other family members. I don't remember a time that we didn't fight... Sad ain't it? But I try and not let it bother me. My mom and me have the best and worst relationship out there. At one time, we understand ourselves completely but then something happens and the arguments stop... It always ends with her angry and me frustrated, crying and angry... I have cried more in the past year and half (That is when it got worst) Then my entire lifespan so far. Plus since she had a bad childhood, she tries to make everything different from hers but she ALWAYS compares me to her. I am a different person than her and she just doesn't understand that! I always feel really bad after because she wants me to be the perfect child but I can't and I never will be. I am just me. Like today, I punched a wall because I just wanted to feel something else than sadness and worst thing is that I fake smiles and optimism at school so nobody knows. My friends don't understand even though I have told them but now I brush it off. It's not their life so they don't need to understand it. But that's my situation... Now that you have heard something about me, I need help. I'm sending myself in the abyss. I am losing control. I feel as if everything is slipping from my fingers and everything is falling apart. I don't know what's happening to me! I am losing myself and I don't know what to do! It's hard to keep up my grades, to make sure that everything is done, that I go to my activities after school. It feels so hard to do right now... I throw things and slam doors when I am super mad. I don't have anger issues but I keep in so many emotions that I explode when I can't take them anymore. My world seems to be crumbling before my eyes. My family is in debt, my parents might split and my brothers hate me. My dog, running, drawing and books are my only escape.  I don't know what to do... Sincerely LostintheAbyss
