Inspirations for Spring 2011: Chanel Runway

Spring 2011 will be all about light, frothy colors on sheer fabrics like Chanel’s Spring 2011 runway collection (seen here from Paris). If you’ve already got sheer fabrics, shimmery details, and stark black contrasts (like high waisted pants or buttons on a narrow-waisted blazer) consider yourself ahead of the curve. Chanel’s Spring 2011 looks are very different from the other prevailing runway trends- boho, wild geometric prints, and bolder shapes, but can easily be styled together. Consider modern, futuristic metallic shorts with elegant, sheer pink blouses and wood heels.
