Spring 2008 Fashion Trends: Omiru Picks the Top 5 Most Wearable Trends

Knee Length Skirts
Knee length or a little above or below the knee creates the most flattering leg line.

Dresses with Pockets
Form meets function.   Plus, you can go out without a purse.

The Oversized Collar
Provides a dramatic frame for your most important feature: your face.

The Belt
If you have a defined waistline, belts draw attention to
your thinnest point.  And if you don’t, belts help create the illusion
of a waist.

The Color Purple
Quietly bold, there’s a shade of purple to fit every complexion.

Spring 2008 Fashion Trends: Omiru Picks the Top 5 Least Wearable Trends

Maxi Dresses
Unless you’re six feet tall, maxi dresses look as if they swallowed you alive.

Mini Dresses
Great to wear…if you’re blessed with flawless (and long) legs.

The Bubble Skirt
A visually interesting but awkward-to-wear silhouette.  Fun for stylists, less fun for you.

Sheer Fabric
Done tastefully, sheer fabric can be gorgeous.  But it’s
tough to pull off during the day–and the transparent nature of the
fabric often shows a little more than you’re intending.

Feathers
Absolutely fabulous on accessories, tough to wear on clothes.
