The 70's inspired fashion is coming back in style, and one of the biggest trends that was fashionable back in the 70's and will make a comeback in 2011 is the Knitwear and Crochets. Since it is a bit cold outside you can sport the trend earlier.
Here are some quirky Knitwear I liked from Markus Lupfer:
and I like the simple one colored Lacoste sweaters:
I love sweaters & it is considered trendy if you wear them ! You can wear quirky sweaters with leather skinny jeans and accessorize it with an oversized bag and some mismatched bags and for shoes you can wear flats or even pumps. If you wanted to wear a simple sweater you can get a neutral color and wear it with skinny jeans and add a scarf over that a bold colored messenger bag and flats with the same color as the bag. If you wanted to go for a bold colored sweater you can wear it with ripped skinny jeans and some TOMS or flats and a messenger bag also add some long necklaces :). You would look good !! The secret is not to look overdressed you are supposed to look casual in knitwear.
Personally, I love knitwear :) and when I knew it is going to make a comeback I was excited I would look trendy wearing sweaters :)
