Spring 2006 Trend: Preppy Minimalism

Trend Importance Factor: High.

Wearability Factor: High.

How to Wear It: Embrace your inner East Coast preppy side with cardigans (both shrunken and oversized), layered pullovers, tees, and sport shirts, sweatercoats, and vests. Preppy Minimalism is easy to wear and friendly to all body types.

For a bit of flair, mix up your accessories. Pair a dressy outfit with casual flip flops, or match your polo-and-shorts look with a statement necklace.

Where in Trend Lifecycle: This trend should truly be classified as a classic–think of Ralph Lauren’s timeless style.

Spring 2006 Trend: Bright Yellow

Trend Importance Factor: Medium.

Wearability Factor: Medium.

How to Wear It: Mimic the warmth of the sun with the addition of bright yellow to your wardrobe. The color looks especially fresh paired with orange, white, or a spring green. Fair skin tones should steer clear of pale yellows and go with a more vibrant shade so as not to look washed out. Beware of yellow on Asian skin; choose darker or more vibrant shades. On darker skin tones, however, yellows of all shades are extremely flattering.

Where in Trend Lifecycle: Shades of yellow have been on the fashion scene over the last few seasons, but this season’s emphasis on the color reflects a larger move towards more pastel shades.
