fashion week: spring ’09

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.

 

full skirts

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

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.

 

loose pants

this is my favorite trend for spring. finally! some comfort for my poor gams! i loved phillip lim, chloe, diesel, cavalli and stella mccartney.

 

circus

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.

Zooey Deschanel Is It for Nylon and For Us

zooey deschanel, nylon‘s october covergirl, is my current obsession. from her bulging and beautiful eyes to her quirky and fun style, this girl screams “IT!”. here are my favorites from her nylon spread:

3 reasons to lust after Chloe:

1. look at these GORGEOUS paper bag pants in all colors with metallic accents!

2. i love the patent booties and gentle ocean-inspired color palette.

3. i am completely digging the patent finishes and autumnal colors. this is so not halloween.

 

have a lovely day!!!
