Spring & Summer Color Trends 2011

Christmas is around the corner, it's reminding me the end of the year 2010. It's time to prepare and present the best of ourselves in the brand new year 2011. And, don't miss the fashion trends for spring and summer in 2011 too. Being browsed through most of the fashion websites, all of them have one thing in common ~ color. Therefore, helping to shape the numerous trends we'll wear throughout the year are a number of colour trends that a lot of designers and labels will use to shape their collection. Hence, let's have a peak of color trends in 2011.

"Soften", "Energize", "Excite" and "Uplifting" are keywords for Spring/Summer 2011. For the Spring / Summer 2011 season they've put forwards five key colour trends.

Spring personified in a palette, the colors that make up this Spring 2011 color trend are mostly named after flowers: iris, viola, daffodil, poppy, and geranium.

This is one color trend for those who are loud and proud.

New Classic
According to Lenzing new and unexpected twists on classic elements, and naturally bright pigments, will develop into new classics. "Fabrics are classic, materials the same but all elements are somewhat twisted: fibers in unusual yarn-spinning and -counts, classical weave patterns in atypical materials clashed with a curious checkered design, an embroidery where you didn't expect it - nothing loud, just enough to make you startle."

An obvious color theme for Spring 2011 because of its nautical tones, such obviousness is also what is likely to see it lazily interpreted and applied - a danger for designers and labels looking to apply seasonal colors to their basics. To avoid such misapplication, it should be used with "floating" pieces where the fabric is the focus; an interpretation of the sheer clothing trend seems a strong contender if you intend to work this color theme through your wardrobe.

Subtle colours, bar for the jet black, this is a color trend all about sheen; in effect, luxurious and radiant colors menat to match with your radiant Summer tan.

Lingerie / Swimwear Spring 2011 Colour Trends

Along with their take on the motifs that we'll be wearing in Spring 2011, Interfiliere have also released their interpretation of the season's colour trends. Their choice for the colours you should be picking for your swimwear and lingerie are an eclectic range of hues, and ones better suited to swimwear than they are to the boudoir.

Spectacular Photos of Animal Migration

Animal migration is the travelling of long distances in search of a new habitat/home. The trigger for the migration is usually a response to lower temperatures resulting in a reduced food supply, and a change in day length. Migration is common in mammals, fish , and some insects but is most marked in birds. To be counted as a true migration, and not just a local dispersal or irruption, the movement of the animals should be an annual or seasonal occurrence. Here are some examples of truly awesome, breathtaking, and spectacular animal migration photos that you should see yourself. Enjoy the photos!
