Spring and Summer Trend Review

So, we are well into Spring and inching closer to Summer each day. It is time for a recap, a little reminder of what to wear for the glorious sun filled season ahead. I picked three from the plethora of trends from Spring 09. Get excited!

Color - Bold
If ever there was a time to ransack those old boxes of 80's pop color, now would be it. Make it fast though, you have Rocker Chic to get ready for in the fall. Bold against black is the best and most easily worn combo. It can be pulled off with a bright cardigan over a simple black dress, add pops of color through accessories or be super brave and wear it as a statement.

Safari - Neutrals
A few weeks back I featured this trend with a few of my favorite pieces. Well, as we moved closer to Summer the options have increased and so has my favorites list! This has great versatility and we will see the neutrals continue through the fall (but will have a little shine added to them).

Geometric - Black and White
Easy to wear and easier to find. This trend has really taken off from high end to budget retailers. Make sure that the pattern fits your body type, the pattern should accent your favorite parts not make them enemy #1. As for fall, we will see the geometry more in the structure rather than in the pattern.
