here are my top 5 trends for spring 2009:
ruffles, pleats and tiers
this girly trend was a hit from anna sui, christopher kane, galliano and lagerfeld. toughen up these frills with a tough motorcycle jacket or pair a stiff blazer with your ruffles for a menswear feel.
as seen at lanvin, leulla and miu miu, the full skirt is best worn on the natural waist. this is a great trend for you if you have large hips that you want to play down.
yellow popped on the runways at abaete, alexander mcqueen, chris benz and pucci. wake yourself up with a whole yellow ensemble for spring! or, add a yellow accent to any outfit with an accessory, like shoes or a clutch.
this is my favorite trend for spring. finally! some comfort for my poor gams! i loved phillip lim, chloe, diesel, cavalli and stella mccartney.
at betsey johnson, marc by marc and topshop unique, some serious fun went down on the runways. you can add this playful trend into your wardrobe by incorporating humor into your outfits. remember, bright colors, stripes and checks rule for this trend.
