If what you want is to step out of the box and try eye-popping outfits, the Uterqüe spring/summer 2011 collection offers you a multitude of trends that look as though they have stepped straight off the catwalk. It’s all about taking chances and daring combinations, but also about a more dreamy, romantic and rather soft approach for the less brave of you. Go bold this season and try bubblegum pastels or vibrant colors, injecting a youthful touch to your wardrobe!

The most important elements in the Uterqüe collection for the upcoming season are the cool accessories. Shoes, handbags, hats, sunglasses, head scarves and jewelry represent crucial pieces that can style up your look in an instant.

We are definitely head-over-heels for the oh-so-gorgeous minimalist style that doesn’t use any type of excess in order to stand out. Simple silhouettes, without any special details or adornments, delicate, almost perfect lines, and an intelligent sophistication are the main ingredients of a minimalist trend.

So simple but so chic! Yes, this is what white represents. Despite its apparent simplicity, white hides a certain extravagance that exudes femininity and maximum elegance. And that crisp white mini dress in the Uterqüe collection for the forthcoming season is so gorgeous as it can undoubtedly become a style staple. Alongside the eternal white, nude hues are also extremely chic and modern. Whether you opt for a head-to-toe white or second-skin outfit or you choose just one white item, you’ll certainly not fail the styling exam.

If there is one trend we cannot avoid this season, that is the one breaking all fashion rules and allowing free mixing and matching. Everything from cute pastels to bold brights is utterly modern and so easy to wear. Besides, the red and pink combination can really assure you a wow-factor appearance. The Uterqüe spring/summer 2011 collection comes with eye-catching, adorable pastels and sunshine-inspired yellows that might prove very effective for a chic, casual outfit.

No summer-appropriate wardrobe is complete without stripes and prints. Have fun with your styling and add a touch of audaciousness to your everyday outfits, rocking unique combinations that seem rather impossible to wear such as the ones spotted in the Uterqüe collection. Indeed, it’s time to ditch those dull grays and choose amazing ethnic prints or nautical-inspired stripes. Embrace an edgy, eclectic style and you’ll certainly make a statement. Don’t be afraid to mix and match and bring a playful spring update to your wardrobe.

With the ’70s trends ruling the spring/summer 2011 runways, there’s no wonder everyone is hardly waiting to show off their psychedelic outfits. You’ll find it hard to resist to all those stunning items characterized by a glamorous, rock’n’roll-inspired and optimistic vibe. The Uterqüe collection features a riot of ’70s must-have pieces such as flared jeans, wide-brimmed hats, belts, dizzy platform sandals, and specific prints.

Flowing, ground-skimming skirts and dresses are without any doubt some of this season’s key items. In fact, maxis are constantly reinterpreted, they are versatile and imply no trick whatsoever when it comes to styling. Be creative and wear your maxi skirt with simple tees, leather jackets and impressive accessories. If you’re not so much into the maxi, Uterqüe also has flattering mini and midi skirts in go-with-everything colors.
