One of the easiest ways to look fabulous while applying little to no effort is by wearing a trendy and chic dress that is feminine, comfortable, and flattering. One-piece outfits are simple, hassle-free, and luckily, one of the biggest trends this season. If you want to know what the fashion forecast will be for next year, pay close attention and take notes as we count down the top 10 trends in hot casual dresses for 2011.
#10: Nautical Stripes
Navy-and-white stripes are an absolute must-have trend that posses a surprisingly high level of versatility. Nautical stripes look amazing when paired with gold jewelry, red lipstick, and camel-colored heels. For a reverse nautical effect, try red-and-white stripes with navy accessories.
#9: The Fringe
One of the hottest elements of 2010, the flapper-inspired fringe style has been used in handbags, boots, and of course, dresses. The fringe will remain one of the top trends for 2011 and we will be seeing this kind of detailing more frequently in casual dresses.
#8: Belted Dresses
Solid or printed above-the-knee garments with a built-in belt is another top item for next year. Pair this with some funky jewelry and you are ready to go.
#7 Long-sleeve Short Dresses
These look best when designed on a solid color with either a v-neck or a rounded neckline. For an extra sexy look, opt for one that has a scoop back. Long-sleeve short dresses should be fitted, a few inches above the knee, and made from a thick, slightly stretchy fabric.
#6 Backless Dresses
For the sexiest look, show off in a backless halter dress. These make the perfect outfit in hot weather and look great on a feminine figure.
#5 The Sweater Dress
During colder days, throw on a sweater dress over some matte tights. Pair this outfit with some knee-high boots and you're ready for a magazine photo shoot!
#4 The Boyfriend Shirt-Dress
The 'boyfriend' style is one of the most dominant overall themes of fashion lately. The boyfriend shirt-dress consists of a slim-fit, men's collar shirt inspired dress. These look amazing worn with a high-waisted belted and sky-high heels.
#3 Tribal Prints
Cultural and tribal prints look best on simple, loose-fitting dresses. Cinch these at the waist with a solid colored belt and pair with statement jewelry pieces.
#2 The Little Black Casual Dress
Every woman should have not one, but two little black dresses: one formal garment and the other an everyday, casual, yet sexy and cute dress. Choose the style and fit that flatters you best and opt for a classic style.
#1 The A-Symmetrical Style
Though symmetry and proportion are often some of the most sought after attributes, this year is all about creating a balance through other elements like color, shape, and key visual points. The a-symmetrical trend is currently all over the red carpet, often seen in dresses like the popular one-sleeve garment and other designs that exhibit an uneven scope of symmetry, such as a slanted hem. There are endless possibilities to choose from, but always remember to choose a style that fits and flatters you the best.
