“In fashion, one day you are in and the next you’re out!” Now, I know I’m not Heidi Klum, nor would I like to be, but there is a lot of truth to her signature Project Runway phrase. Never did any other words sound more truthful than these.
Spring is upon us and yesterdays’ are the trends we rocked last year, even though some of those trends are still going strong. Let’s take a look at the little twists we have added to this season’s fads.
Colored Jeans. Yes, color is still going strong, and why not? We do not live in a black and white world and your wardrobe shouldn’t either. Color adds a pop to your every outfit, and if you got on the color train last year then it’s time to update your palette. Neons were all the rage last year. This year we’re taming the fashion beast a little and we’re going for the pastels instead. Yes, we have already established we like color and we’re not afraid to wear “brights”. But let’s face it. We all like a little change once in awhile. That’s where pastels come into play. They are cool, calm, and well, different.
Short Shorts. Lets not be afraid of showing your gams. We’ve had a long fall and winter and now is the time to show your money makers. Short shorts are back in action and they are shorter than ever.
They come in all sorts of colors (pastels) and sizes, so there is no excuse not to get a pair, or five. My forecast prediction is “sunny with a chance of hotness”.
Loud Prints. Whereas busy prints were all that last year, this year large bold prints take the stage. Jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts, you name it, anything with large, loud, bold prints are all IN this season.
Take advantage of this fad and take a risk. Right now is the time to wear something out of the ordinary and make a statement. Be careful of going overboard with it though.
Graphic Tees. They are still all the rage.Graphic tees are comfortable and cool. You can wear them everyday and dress them up or down, however you like.
Pencil Skirts. They are back!!! Actually, they never left. Pencil skirts are gorgeous and flattering, but this season they come with a little twist; more color! You can get them in pastels and bold prints to complement your every outfit. There you have it, some of this season’s hottest trends. Get them, wear them, and simply enjoy them, because you never know when they’ll come back in style.
