It’s the new year and with it comes a whole new style. Here are our favourite trends for Spring/Summer 2011.
A colour that suits everyone, this year it’ll be gracing our wardrobes in it’s many forms and shades, from pastels to Amethyst. MaxMara sent their models down the catwalk in head-to-toe purple. Get the look with this gorgeous F&F Velvet puff sleeve dress. It’s on trend for 2011 and even better – it’s in our sale!
It’s time to ditch the aviator and get a Harley! Burberry led the way at the S/S 2011 shows, and since then everyone from Kate Moss to Alexa Chung have revived this 80s classic. Liquorice have designed a fantastic faux leather jacket, which is a snip at just £55!
3. The perfect trouser
Forget harems and pegs…its all about tapered trousers! Taking the hottest trend of last year straight through to this, this lightweight and sophisticated look will see you out of your winter warmers all the way through to summer. Get the look with these F&F Trousers and team with heels or flat pumps for chic tailored style.
4. Leopard print
Be an animal in 2011! Just don the kitty print to bring out you inner vixen! Try this gorgeous F&F Limited Edition Leopard print top and pair with red nails for that purrrrfect look.
Practical, chic and with enough room to fit all the essentials, satchels aren’t just for Back to School. We love this compact Marc Jacobs number – it’s compact, classy and cool as a cucumber. Get the same style for a fraction of the price with our F&F Multi pocket satchel.
Versatile, warm, natural and a great alternative to grey. Keep those neutral hues and add colour as a statement. While we wait for winter to melt away, this soft hue will warm up an outfit without overpowering it. We love this F&F jumper for its quirky shoulders which add dimension to a winter essential.
7. Make like Vicky B….

The tux trend is in full swing with everyone from Kate Moss to Cher Lloyd and Lily Allen donning the fitted black number with everything from skin tight leggings, to wide-legged trousers or over short skirts and dresses. It’s a clear winner whether you’re stepping out to do the weekly shop, or out to the swankiest restaurant in town. Steal their style with our F&F Soft crepe Jacket.
9. 1970′s Stripy knits and maxi skirts
Angelina Jolie, Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton…all fans of the Maxi which is seeing its biggest revival since the ‘70s. Missoni leads the way with their stripy knits, and long, flowing romantic skirts. Get the look with this F&F Maxi skirt which will see you float into summer like a pre-Raphaelite maiden.
10. Willow Smith Whip your hair….Jumpsuits and afros
If you haven’t seen that video clip or seen the blanket coverage of little miss Smith’s surprise hit, then you’re missing out on 5 minutes of the kind of entertainment only made by the offspring of huge Hollywood stars. Little Willow Smith whipping her hair back and forth has become a huge internet hit, and now her ‘hair-style’ is making its mark on the fashion world. We’re going crazy about jumpsuits and afros right now, not just because we want to whip our hair back and forth, but they also look fantastic with a clinch belt and heels. Check out our gorgeous F&F wide leg jumpsuit for inspiration and get whipping!
