Winter Trends 2011
The overall look this winter is beautiful, feminine, classic and oh so very grown-up.
If I was forced to choose only 2 items as “must-haves” this season, it would undoubtedly have to be the coat and the dress.
The dress is it. In all it’s fabulous glory. And forget voluminous shifts or tent-dresses, this season celebrates the waist. Gorgeous curvy, dresses with coats belted at the waist. Bold colours or flower prints, all nipped in at the waist to show off lots of hippy loveliness. And pencil skirts. There is no escaping the glamour of it all.
And the coats. One must simply own a statement coat this winter. Belted coats, hooded coats, coats with wide sleeves, coats in black or coats in leopard – this season is all about the coat. Happily Hip Hop has the widest selection of jackets and coats you could ever hope to stumble upon. We will keep you both warm and wonderful this winter. Promise.
If we are talking colour, then you may have noticed that things are looking both bold and beautiful. Black, grey and purple are the signature colours this season, and the supporting hues are rich and vibrant: sapphire blue, claret red and chocolate brown. There is absolutely no time to hibernate this winter – life is for living.
Perhaps my favourite trend of all (or almost trend, we can see the revolution starting to happen); is that jeans are getting higher in the waist. Goodbye muffin top: boot-leg, straight-leg or skinny, the waist is definitely getting higher and I for one am loving it!
