Spring Fashion Lookbook: How To Style Yourself For Spring 2011

9 May

Ballet-Inspired Dresses

Pretend you’re a Black Swan—or a white or even ecru one—in a flowing arabesque-ready gown like those shown on the Chloe runway. Need a slightly less ethereal (read: see-through) design? This one should do the double pique trick.Chiffon dress, See by Chloé, $520; visit net-a-porter.com for stores.

’70s Single-Sleeve Tops

Bring a little Studio 54 into your wardrobe (sans the Bianca Jagger white horse) with a flowy shoulder-baring blouse from Marc Jacobs. Pair one with an equally slouchy skirt for a disco goddess effect or add to slim-fitting jeans for a more millennial take.Polyester top, Halston Heritage, $245; net-a-porter.com.

Lace Skirts

Go seductive in lingerie-inspired black and white pieces like those seen at Nina Ricci. A full skirt with a lace overlay can sweetly sashay from office to cocktail hour—even without an accessory swap.Polyester skirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs, $445.58; mytheresa.com.

Colorblock Dresses

Come on, get happy in a cheerful colorful dress like those from Prabal Gurung’s spring collection. Add patent sandals to a smile-inducing sheath for a full nod to the mod.Wool dress, H&M, $40; visit hm.com for store locations.

Denim Shirts

Y’all listen up: the jean shirt is no longer tied to the hokey western yoke. Try a loose denim tunic like Stella McCartney’s subtle design for spring. Or this simple shell silhouette looks equally chic with slim trousers or shorts in a bright print.Cotton top, Topshop, $60; topshop.com.

Striped Tunics

Sporty rugby stripes have never looked as girly as they did on the Isabel Marant runway for spring. A more muted version conjures a romantic boho vibe when layered over a floral skirt.Cotton tunic, United Bamboo, $138; lagarconne.com.

Boldly Printed Pieces

The secret to mixing eye-popping patterns? Choose graphic designs in the same color family a la Diane von Furstenberg. For a more conservative take on the trend, opt for a sleeveless sheath in a single oversize print.Silk dress, Ann Taylor, $158; anntaylor.com.

Embellished Leather Jackets

You don’t need a motorcycle to rock these leathers. Sparkling embellishment (like the studs on Burberry’s cropped runway version) add a feminine touch to tough biker cuts.Leather jacket, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, $560; net-a-porter.com.
