Soft and oh so adorable is the latest Orla Kiely collection for spring/summer 2011. It's time to pretty up your wardrobe for the upcoming season with gorgeous, elegant trench coats, delicate dresses and cute, flirty blouses. Take a peek at the Orla Kiely line and get ready to make a statement!
It is a fact already that soft nude shades are so hot for
spring/summer 2011. Inject
some style and femininity into your wardrobe choosing flowing
fabrics in second-skin shades that seem to be the perfect
alternative to all those bold, vibrant colors that exploded across
the collections. And the new Orla Kiely line comes with amazing
light flesh tones that can add a romantic yet nonchalant flair to
your appearance. Get a fresh and natural look wearing an adorable
mini dress. Still, keep in mind that for this trend it is not
mandatory to be tanned, as pale is 'in' and can be sexy too.
Besides nude shades, brown and beige are also on-trend. You can use these practical colors in order to create elegant, versatile outfits in no time. Team them with bold accessories that look great in the summer.
Black is the new black. One must admit that there is nothing
more elegant and versatile than the old faithful black. This color
has the optical power to slim the silhouette and therefore boost
self-confidence. Moreover, a mini black dress can save you from
every fashion crisis, while a black pair
of pants or a blouse can easily be matched to any item into your
wardrobe. The Orla Kiely spring/summer 2011 collection contains
some chic pieces in solid colors that are perfect for those who
want to go slow and stick to the classics.
What better way to celebrate the warm season than by choosing the already famous and summer-appropriate navy blue? It makes us think about a beautiful vacation on the French Riviera and a delicious, fruity cocktail.
Prints, prints, prints! They are everywhere for summer 2011 and we don't mind as they are playful and utterly sweet. Embrace this trend and keep your shoes and accessories simple in order to let the print stand out. Orla Kiely has a rather unique way to use prints taking us into a magic world with a special vintage vibe. If you want to add a dainty touch, team a printed dress or skirt with a belt. From polka dots and stripes to graphic and fruits, make a fashion statement through one-of-a-kind, eye-catching items.
Brights are without any doubt our biggest crush for the forthcoming season. Even though they might seem as a rather complicated trend, in fact, it is not that hard to shine in a vibrant hue. Now is the best moment to mix and match at ease, feeling free to combine all the summery color offerings. With the catwalks providing numerous options, your task will be more than easy. Ever wished to pair red and pink? Well, now you have the chance to do it. Still, if you want something lighter, just pick one bright-colored dress and some simple accessories and you're ready to go.
