The Top 6 Must-Have Trends for Spring

Right off the runway from Nygard’s 2011 Spring collection, we bring you the season’s biggest trends — from spectacular prints, cargo pants and silver accents, here’s are the top 6 trends en vogue this season:

 

 

 

 

 

1.    Soft utility is the number-one theme of the season. According to Nygard Fashion experts, the trend is “all about a relaxed, utilitarian way of dressing with a military feel.” The earthy palette of olive greens and burnished neutrals, along with lots of smart utility features and clean cuts, is a perfect complement to any autumn standby. The trick to getting this theme right is to choose your military accents wisely, mixing and matching between the ultra femme tops and the ultra laid-back cargo pants.

 

 

 

 

2.    The next trend of the season is called “new romantics,” and just like its name, it screams femininity and is what Nygard calls, “just plain pretty.” Key features of the trend include whimsical cascading and draping and the must-have color of the season: blush. Anything from a very pale, neutral rose to a dark pink flush will be popping up in garments, prints and embellishments this spring.

 

 

 

 

3.    The next trend of the season is anything but the blues. Think navy, indigo, and sky blues that give you an opportunity to have fun and play around. Don’t be afraid to rock those jeans — denim is a key player in this spring trend.

 

 

 

 

4.    This is the season of spectacular prints — from Monet-inspired floral prints to the abstract animal, this no-holds-barred trend is ultra chic. At the Nygard 2011 Spring collection, flirty and playful floral print dresses stole the show.

 

 

 

 

 

5.    The next must-have trend is what Nygard International calls, “Stripes ahoy!” Nautically inspired, the look is all about stripes being done in new and interesting ways. Nygard likes to experiment with stripes of varying length and size combined with floral and paisley prints for contrast that pops!

 

 

 

 

 

6.    When you think about gold or silver, you usually think about eveningwear or the holiday time. Not so this season. The last trend is called “Silver for Summer” and is all about adding a little bit of silver for sparkle and shine as we head into the warmer months. Nygard offers metallic hues in everything from accessories to jackets, adding not only luxe and luster to your ensemble, but also versatility, taking any outfit from day to night.
