  1. SUNSHINE BRIGHTS!Seen everywhere from Jil Sander to Haider Ackermann to Gucci, sunshine brights are a sure-fire hit for the coming summer.
    Style.comsass & bide adds extra levity and texture to this trend with plumes of feathers.

    'notion of purity' TOP
    'a tap on the shoulder' DRESS

  2. FANCY SHORTSThis trend was inspired from a "street level". Take inspiration from some of the chic-est girls in the West Village and go for a comfy quirky short this summer.
    Style.comThese "Watchtower" shorts easily spice up the most casual of tops without being too over the top. Add a pair of chunky wedge ankle boots and you're ready for a night out on the town.

    'the watchtower' SHORTS
    'commercial love' JACKET
    'you know me' TEE

  3. THE NEW PRINTBanana at Prada, leopard at Givenchy, furniture and architecture at Mary Katrantzou -- prints were everywhere for SS '11.
    Style.comNot up for fruit or furniture printed on your clothing? No worries, sass & bide's take on this trend is edgy but totally wearable at the same time.

'dance with me' TRENCH
4. CASUAL SUITINGSuits don't have to be relegated to the workplace; nor do they have to look boring and stuffy. This season, everyone from Stella McCartney to Derek Lam showed casual-cut suits to get your through spring.

'new and improved' JACKET
'new breed' TEE
'around the sun' PANT
