It was love at first sight! When simplicity meets sophistication, the result is a casual-chic vibe, perfect for tough and sexy women. And the latest Ba&Sh spring/summer 2011 lookbook features versatile and basic elements, so cool, yet classic and refined. Make the most of summer fever choosing one of these gorgeous everyday pieces and get ready to play with your styling.

French label Ba&Sh comes with an amazing collection for the warm season. From delicate, soft lace and classic whites and blacks to romantic floral prints and vibrant reds, the Ba&Sh spring/summer 2011 lookbook features all the on-trend pieces you need in order to enjoy this time of the year in style. We see immaculate tailoring and clean lines, lots of neutrals, nudes and perfect cuts, without too many embellishments and accessories.
Besides, the new line also contains some beautiful handbags, shoes and some hot denim items. Denim shorts and boyfriend jeans are practical and have the advantage of complementing more outfits.

Still, one of the hottest choices remains the oh-so-flirty lace dress. And Ba&Sh does this trend just like on the high street. Get an effortlessly girlie look with a cute lacy dress or a maxi, ground-skimming skirt. The ultimate, most lovable combination? A pair of sexy lacy shorts and a chic boyfriend blazer.

Flawless cuts and lines, monochrome, but also the classic black and white combination are the ingredients behind stylish thinking. For those of you who consider colors and brights as being more like a fashion challenge, black and white represent those timeless options which characterize a classy, refined style. You can still stand out with an exquisite boyfriend blazer, a pair of white pants and ultra-feminine heels just as seen in the Ba&Sh spring/summer 2011 lookbook.

Another timeless color that symbolizes subtlety is gray. Even though it is considered rather gloomy and boring, gray is elegant and versatile, while a mini gray dress is utterly flirty and ladylike. You can wear gray with black or team it with more colorful pieces in order to revive and brighten up your look.

One thing is sure: red is one hot color. Whether you choose a dress or pants, red is powerful and has the ability to make you feel wild and self-confident. If you love this color, invest in a blouse or tee and wear it with jeans or shorts for a casual, daytime look or with something smart such as a pair of black, elegant pants and high-heels for a more formal, evening event.
Since summertime is all about comfort, jeans are the ones to dictate our wardrobe year after year. For summer 2011, make a fashion statement by mixing bright-colored jeans with vibrant tops.

Florals are this season's lust prints. And there is no better way to incorporate romanticism and femininity into your wardrobe than by choosing a cute, dainty floral-printed dress. In fact, florals are blooming gorgeously on the runways and are heavily featured as basic patterns on a riot of summery pieces. Ba&Sh brings lovely mini dresses for a great impact, boho skirts that graze the ground, maxi dresses, but also floral-printed shorts for you to show off those toned legs.

Remember to always consider your body shape when purchasing a clothing item with floral prints. For example, smaller prints work for petite figures, while larger florals are more flattering for curvier silhouettes. Also, when wearing a bold floral print skirt, keep the rest of the outfit simple going for a neutral shade. Or, you can try something edgier and pair florals with brights as seen in the Ba&Sh spring/summer 2011 lookbook.
