2 Trends for 2 Seasons

If you're like me, you are always looking forward to the next season and all of the new, fun trends to try out. And while Fall '11 will definitely spawn some trends (both good and bad), there are a few summer trends that are sure to stay. Two of my favorite are colorblocking and maxis. I particularly love colorblocking with orange and pink, two fresh colors that will lift your mood come winter blues. So I put together a few spreads of looks to work these two trends: night and day, and summer and fall.

Color Blocking: Summer
Daytime:                                                                                                Nighttime:
 

 Color Blocking: Fall
Daytime:                                                                                                Nighttime:

 Maxi: Summer
Daytime:                                                                                                Nighttime:

Maxi: Fall
 Daytime:                                                                                                Nighttime:
