It’s time to put away those shapeless winter coats
and clunky boots: spring fashion has arrived. Fresh new looks and
soft fabrics dominated 2009’s spring runway, and adapting runway
looks for your wardrobe can be comfortable, attractive, and
affordable. From cityslicker metallics to retro geometric prints, we
think you’ll find something that works for you. Here are some of the
top trends and how to carry them off with panache.
Trend #1: 3D and textured fabrics
Asymmetric origami-like folds, retro ruffles, and
complex pleats are all in this spring. Single color tops or dresses
with unusual stitched-in details make a subtle and elegant
Trend #2: Roomy trousers
The end of uncomfortable, skin-tight jeans just might
be in sight. Although you can continue to wear skinny jeans, spring
brings softer, roomier pants. Harem pants, loose cotton and linen
capris, wide-legged trousers, and soft shorts are all in fashion.
Remember, the wider or looser your trousers, the more fitted your
top should be.
Trend #3: A shot of bright color
Bright yellow is in this spring. But if, like many
people, you’re leery about wearing yellow, you have other options.
One vibrant piece in your wardrobe – a cherry blazer or a cerulean
mini skirt – updates your look without making you look like a box of
crayons. Don’t try pairing brights with blacks, either – you might
just end up looking like an escapee from the 1980s. Stick with
whites or denim instead.
Trend #4: Nudes and blush colors
A great alternative to bright colors, soft peachy
corals and muted pinks are equally in this season. Look for these
colors in soft, flowing fabrics; they’ll complement and warm your
pale winter skin.
Trend #5: Embellishments and
The main thing to keep in mind about wearing sequins,
beadwork, and metallics is moderation. A top with a shimmering
beadwork design, a metallic pewter pencil skirt – either can add
casual sophistication to your outfit, but don’t wear both at the
Trend #6: Geometric and retro
Geometric prints both subtle and bold are in. Don’t
forget the cardinal rule about wearing prints: larger frames can
carry off larger prints, but smaller frames should stick with
Trend #7: Big jewelry
From bib-like necklaces to chandelier earrings, big
jewelry is in this season. Avoid a fashion faux pas by wearing just
one type of statement jewelry at a time: a chunky cocktail ring, a
big ethnic necklace, or shoulder-brushing earrings.
