Spring 2011 Fashion Trends from the World's Best Boutiques

Spring may be playing hard to get, but soon enough we’ll be able to put our winter coats and galoshes away.  And when spring has finally sprung, we’ll need new clothes to work and play in. 

So let's take a look at a few of the season’s hottest designer fashion trends Everything She Wants found on the uber-cool boutique clothing website Farfetch, which culls fashions from top-selling and up-and-coming designers found at the world's best boutiques (with free returns worldwide).


Laurence Decade sandals

Jungle boogie: Animal print has become an evergreen staple in every stylish girl’s wardrobe.  But no matter what any Real Housewives cast member might think, you never want to overdo it and wear leopard print from head-to-toe.  A great way to spice up an outfit is with a bold pair of shoes like these funky leather, leopard print platform sandals. Details include leopard print crossover straps at the toe, yellow trim, buckle fastening, and a sling-back.

Flower power: Nothing says spring fashion like floral prints. Perk up with this patterned cotton tunic  featuring a deep v-neckline (I'd wear a cami under it), sporty drawstring ties fastening at the waist, and three quarter length sleeves with tie-details on the cuffs. And be a flower girl every day with this whimsical, gold-plated rose pendant with a pink resin rose and green jade leaf -- the perfect accessory for the season.

Anchors away: Capture the nautical look in this playful pink and purple striped cotton sailor dress with a sailor’s collar with black edging and a chest pocket with an anchor detail. The darling bow front dress (see first photo) also gives a subtle nod to the sailor girl theme.





4. 

Boogie fever:  The '70s are back.  Revisit the disco era with these blue leather platform sandals.  The high-heeled "Eunice"sandal has a cork sole and double ankle straps.
