Huh-oh, seems a new fashion term is presenting itself -- Ladylike. If it keeps getting used (or overused), it may end up being on the list of 'worn-out' phrases that I just blogged about. At least we don't have to worry about that until next year! Whew!

A key look for spring 2011, is the '60s-inspired Ladylike Trend. The silhouettes of the 1950s and 1960s make a strong return, with shapes that accentuate curves and foster femininity. A hip-hugging sheath dress with a below-the-knee hem is the ultimate in hourglass dressing, while the full-circle skirt and dress remain at the core of the trend. (Source: Fashionising)

New Lady-Like Couture is the way Juicy is describing the Well-worn Feminine Utility look online. It features cargo pants, cuffed linen shorts, some denim - all softened with easy lines and fabrics.

WHO WHAT WEAR sent out this trend report today: Ladylike Jackets ...Coco Chanel once said that simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance. That's why today's Trend Report focuses on a classic and elegant piece--the ladylike jacket. Whether it's cropped and boxy or hip-length and snugly buttoned, this wardrobe essential has been a favorite of ladies-who-lunch since Mme. Chanel designed her first signature cardigan jacket in the 1920s. Since then, the typically tweed topper has been reinvented by countless fashion houses--just about every brand has created a version--demonstrating its truly timely appeal.
