snow may still be falling, but spring is just around the corner.
(Trust us on this one.) Can’t wait to peel off the gloves, hats, and
bulky sweaters? Here’s a peek at what’s in store for spring 2010.
There’s something wonderfully, casually sexy about
the boyfriend trend. From the perennially popular boyfriend jeans to
the oversized button down, we’ve now moved into boyfriend blazers –
un-fussy, broken-in blazers that are just a little too big. Worn
with the sleeves rolled up and a pair of khakis, the look is
confident and comfortable with none of that trying-too-hard vibe.
And here’s the best part: if your significant other isn’t too much
larger (the blazer should be no more than about 2” wider than your
actual shoulders), you don’t even have to buy one.
If you bought into the neutrals trend of 2009, you’ll

not? Soft nude tones, corals, peaches, off-whites, and even grays

at sophistication and subtlety. Look perfectly put together in a
solid neutral dress, or pair a wispy top with your favorite jeans.

they’ll be considerably toned down when they make it to stores.
Whether you’d like to show a lot or just a little, sheers and
cutouts offer an alluring glimpse of unexpected skin – perfect for a
Birds, beware! This spring, feathered skirts, tops,
and dresses were all over the runway. But if you can’t afford or
don’t want the hassles of cleaning a fully feathered piece,
feathered accents are a great way to get in on this trend. From
feathered hems or necklines to feathered purses, hair accessories,
or even lightweight but eye-catching jewelry, the look can be as
understated or over the top as you choose. Peacock feather earrings,
Here’s a good reason to start hitting the gym again:
short hems are in this spring. And by short, we mean short. Models
strutted down the runway in hot pants and micro-minis. Fortunately,
there are alternatives for people not blessed with legs that go on
forever. If you’d really rather not bare all, you can opt for the
always flattering above the knee length, or go for a high-split
dress, which offers an elongated flash of leg without the cellulite.
