The spring 2011 Free People collection seems to have been only a small sample that revealed part of the surprises the brand has in store for us. The latest collection from the brand, called suggestively ‘Primal Scream’, is certainly a surprising one as it appears to be a stretch from what the brand has accustomed us to. Nonetheless, the boho-chic attitude can still be easily noticed in terms of designs. Featuring Martha Hunt, the collection presents a series of loose fitting outfits that are perfectly accessorized to support the theme.
Designed to appeal to the women who like to take a few steps out of their comfort zones, the outfits from the collection push the boundaries when it comes to the combinations that are considered acceptable or recommendable. Mixing knitwear with summer mid length skirts, mixing prints and sheer tops or juggling with proportions are just a few concepts that the brand uses for creating ethnic-inspired looks. Bangles, opulent rings, heavy necklaces and beads perfectly emphasize the oversized accessories trend which is extremely popular this season, being a perfect match for the tribal inspired outfits as they instantly attract attention.
Let go of style modesty and tackle new style challenges without sacrificing comfort as demonstrated by the looks presented by the well known brand. If you are the girly-girl type, the infusion of different pink tones in one outfit can be the perfect solution for you. Even if you don’t find a particular color flattering, embracing some of the concepts the collection is based on can still be useful if you are thinking about making a few upgrades style-wise.
Even though colorful, complex outfits might steal the spotlight, outfits in neutral tones can be just as interesting and edgy. A light gray dress with white tribal motifs is sexy and stylish in its simplicity, being a fabulous choice for a multitude of circumstances. A long, loose top can be a similarly versatile style choice you might include in your outfits. Including neutral toned pieces in your outfits will help balance them out while highlighting the main focal point.
As for the shoe styles used, the emphasis on comfort is more than obvious. On trend strappy gladiator style sandals, comfortable wedges or knee length boots are the preferred spring summmer 2011 shoe trends. With or without tribal pints these shoe styles can highlight the beauty of long lean legs while still supporting an active lifestyle.
