2011 Fashion Colors- What’s New?

Color is personal.  We each have a color that we go to when we want to feel great. It is a color that we love, and you will see it in your wardrobe every season. But we each love to see what colors are forecast for the coming season. After all, we need change and we want to know how we can add new colors to our current wardrobe without throwing out our current favorites.
Honeysuckle InspirationWe turn to the Pantone Color Institute because they are the most widely recognized global authority on color.  They uncover what the most important seasonal color trends are in fashion by finding out what hues have provided inspiration to the designers of NY Fashion Week. Their report is used as a reference tool for those connected to fashion, retail, and the media. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Institute, and her team make their choices based on current events, psychology, economics, consumer behavior and socioeconomic issues.

“We look around not only at what’s happening in the news and the socioeconomic issues of today. With so much going on and people still very concerned with losing their jobs, we chose a color we felt would be energy-provoking and uplifting.”

Monochromatic DressingAs I pour through fashion magazines and watch all of the beautiful models on television, I longingly admire their tiny waists and long leggy looks. Although most of us don’t live on carrots and lettuce and aren’t six feet tall, there are some fashion tricks that the professionals use to achieve the long leggy look.
At Chico’s they call it “column” dressing. That is, dressing in monochromatic colors from head to toe.  You match your top to your pants or skirt and then match your tights to the rest of the outfit. It creates a continuous column of color, and interest is added through using different textures and great scarves and jewelry. And you don’t stop there.


The PERFECT Gift Certificate

How many times do you get a gift and even though you love the giver, the gift is just not right for you.  You then have to decide whether to return it or just keep it so as not to hurt the giver’s feelings, then never use it, wear it, eat it, or just regift it.

The PERFECT gift is one that you know the receiver will be able to use.

At Foot Traffic we offer a gift certificate that takes the worry out of gift giving because who doesn’t need legwear and socks?!?

We offer something for everyone on your gift list, from natural bamboo socks, to fashion hosiery and comfy legwarmers. We have hundreds of fun and fashion legwear items to choose from so you can be assured that the recipient will get exactly what they want.  It’s so easy.

Holiday Legwear It’s that wonderful time of year when we have the opportunity to enjoy the company of friends, neighbors, and family.  Whether you are having people over or going out on the town, it is a time to get festive and expressive. With fashion options abounding, don’t forget your legs! From gloves to legwear, every item worn by a person adds to the overall appeal and personal expression.

Although pants and jeans have replaced skirts and dresses over the past years, we are seeing a return to the short skirt and black dresses,as a fun, flirty alternative, but worn with accessories and great legwear.  There are several ways to make a personal fashion statement at your holiday party.



When we think of lace we usually associate it with our most intimate apparel such as lingerie or nightwear. No longer do we hide this girly accent! Lace is now a delightful fashion focus that is fully exposed whether on a dress, scarf, skirt, or legwear.

Why are stripes so amazing?

Because they are so clean, simple, yet versatile.

They blend well with all textures and patterns and can be the focal point or an accent. Stripes are just cool. Whether in the home or on the runway, stripes are always is style.

OTK Striped SocksAlthough stripes have been a fashion staple forever, they look new when designed in fun colors and used in fun new ways.
