Finally the clouds have parted and Mother Nature is giving us a big sunshine filled kiss called spring. So what’s a girl to wear? We wondered the same thing as we attempted to get dressed for brunch this past weekend. We’ve stashed our winter coats and snow boots, but what shall we replace them with? Breaking down some of the big trends on the Spring 2010 runways:
Forward March- Looks like the military jacket will stick around another season. Swap one into your spring rotation for your updated warm weather outerwear.
Juicy Couture Military Shirt Jacket, $198
Mixed Bag- A fun trend on this season is the bold mixing and matching of prints. Done head to toe in one pattern or mixing complimentary patterns will give you a head turning look.
Nanette Lepore Primrose Ankle Length Pants, $268
Everything’s Coming Up Roses- Floral patterns were running rampant on the runways. Whether Laura Ashley’esque or Painterly prints, it’s time to water your girly seed and sport some florals for spring.
Nightcap Clothing Corset Slip Dress, $189
Tit for Tat- Finally, something I’ve been doing for years is being validated on the runway. Sheer and sexy, models showed their underpinnings as much as their outerwear.
ASOS Sheer Lace Blouse, $30.77
In the Nude- Neutrals were big on the runway. One in particular was nude. Get naked.
camilla and marc Constantine Ponte Knit Mini Dress, $495
Peekaboo!- Another one of my favorite trends from the runways was the amount of cut out dresses being shown. They are very, very sexy in an unconventional way.
illionaire Cross Strapped Dress, $252
Ruffle Your Feathers- A fun and flirty alternative to fur? Feathers. Just don’t go overkill and end up looking like Big Bird. One feathered piece at a time.
Haute Hippie Ombre Feather Skirt, $595
A Shine of the Times- Recession? What recession? Shine and shimmer were all over the runways giving the luxe look. Shine isn’t just for evening. Dress up your everyday look with something shiny.
Alice and Olivia Adina Oversized Sequin T-shirt, $484
Speaking of shiny, get out your AmEx cards, girls. Adding a few key pieces can re-vamp what’s already going on in your closet.
