Hitting the streets in Brisbane and Sydney last week  I saw strong re occurrences in the S/S 2011 Trends. 
What did I wear while out on the prowl ? A hot pink vintage number with a classic peter pan colour, thin black waisted belt and a stark black canvas trench with quilted collar. Collars are big this season, as is mixing bright colours like this fuchsia dress with plain, or textured blacks. A popular combination is a classic black on black outfit with a bright zesty colour over sized envelope clutch, an easy DIY outfit for all those fashion conscious but still on a budget.

Crop Tops! How cute is this little floral number that this Sydney-Side is wear with a un-even hemmed skirt in caramel (Hint: Try mixing Hot pink and Caramel! Looks fantastic and a classic look that would still cut the mustard for work attire) She has topped it off with a classic brown vintage bag embellished with large armoured discs which is a nice jeux  de position to this hippy-chic look. Crop tops have been popular this S/S 2011 with the likes of Rag & Bone. This belly-bearing look is hot and is here to stay after carrying on from S/S 2010.

I love Suzie’s look! (check out her blog here!) because of its versatility. This cute little number consisting of a loose fit high waisted short, sheer textured blouse and fitted cropped blazer with shoulder details could be taken from day to night. Switch the low key, casual converse high tops for a pair of wedged booties and your ready for drinks and dinner. This focus is on glamorous day wear and for all those women who don’t get to walk a red carpet every day she give it a go. We have seen the short and blazer trend on the catwalk for Balmain this season. Another option? Not comfortable with the high waisted shorts? Don’t Suzie’s pins to pull it off ? Why not try the leather shorts and fitted blazer with a loose white top teamed with a pair of patient stiletto’s and maybe so heavy metal jewellery for that “Rocker Chick” Look.
