It’s day four of New York Fashion Week and the trends for Spring 2011 seem to be getting better every day!  We’re seeing twill trouser pants, long silk skirts, chiffon blouses, all in neutral tones.  And for the expected pop of color, we’re seeing poppy-colored sheath dresses, printed thigh-grazing shorts, and color blocked halter dresses.
