My top catwalk looks for Spring 2011

When it comes to style I call myself a “passive fashionista.” I don’t live by fashion, I’m not obsessed with it, I don’t spend hours chasing the best deals on designer clothes online (frankly cannot be bothered), I try to only buy things I would actually wear and not just admire in the mirror from time to time, and I don’t feel comfortable spending lots of money on clothes, sticking to economical brands with good quality and cool up-to-date designs.

But I do pay a lot of attention to what I wear and feel a strong need for a fashion infusion every now and then. So having flapped through catwalk photos of spring/summer 2011 collections, I picked out the looks that pleased me most, hence - producing my very first post as occasional FASHION BLOGGER.

1) Balmain: punk rock

Who knows what forced Balmain to swap its usual dressy glamour for "dirty punk" but I'm loving it regardless. It stands closer to my everyday style than all other spring/summer collections I saw.

Another reason for me to love this latest Balmain look is that it would be so easy for me to follow: my studded black leather jacket from Zara still looks good as new, while a t-shirt full of holes and pins will become my next do-it-yourself creative project.

2) D&G: summer romantics

When summer hits the city, the more playful, girly side of my personality often comes out and that's when the style tips from spring/summer D&G collection will come in handy. From stylish vacationer to urban summer chic - there are plenty of sources for inspiration here.

3) Julien MacDonald: lace & macramé

Dresses and tops of macramé and lace is my latest style infatuation. They are just so light and sexy - as if you forgot to change and walked out on the street in your nighty (but no quite).

4) Paul Smith: casual elegance

When I feel a bit more like a lady (it does happen sometimes after all) I opt for casual elegance -the kind that Paul Smith offers for the upcoming spring/summer season.

5) Marc by Marc Jacobs: colourful stripes

Marc Jacobs continues to entertain with the most youthful of his three fashion lines. My season's favourite of his is the sunny multicoloured striped dress. I simply love stripes (can't get enough of them really) and this colourful version of them would be perfect for spring/summer.


6) Elie Tahari: total denim

Naturally I could't bypass this season's big passion for denim - already my favourite fabric for pants (jeans is essentially the only type of pants I wear), shorts and skirts. But to take full advantage of the current all-over denim trend, I'm thinking of getting a loose denim shirt to wear as jacket (at least).
