2011: A Fashion Retrospective

As 2011 prepares to pack its fashionable bags and make way for its successor, we will remember the year just gone for…

1. The Blogger Bun

Sometimes it was small, and scraped back from the head, like a DIY facelift. And sometimes it was big, and messy, like a whole second head. The blogger bun reigned supreme throughout 2011: what will take over in 2012?

2. Animal print

2011 fashion trendsAnimal print is one of those “trends” that never really dies. It definitely got a new lease of life in 2011, though, and cropped up on everything: you could literally have dressed yourself head-to-toe in animal print, if you really wanted to. We’re glad you didn’t, though.

3. Skater dresses

4. Coloured denim

5. Colourblocking

So much so, in fact, that sometimes our officers start trying to type the word in their sleep, they’ve written it so many times. Colourblocking…colourblocking…colourblocking…colourblocking…

6. Midi skirts

fashion trends 2011Some of you hated the midi, while others were just glad to finally have an option other than the micro-mini. Whatever you thought of them, however, they were hard to escape, and they’re still around now. We’re happy: are you?

7. Macarons

fashion trends 2011OK, so they’re not actually clothing, but fashion bloggers spent so much time “squeeing” over them this year that they may as well have been. They ousted cupcakes from the coveted position of “most photographed item of food”, and we’re secretly hoping that next year’s fashionable food is something like the Big Mac. Just for the variety.

Which fashion items will you remember 2011 for? And which ones did you love and hate the most?
