Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Vests 2.0

Vests 2.0 at Charlotte Ronson, Cynthia Steffe, and Ports 1961.


Style tip?  Vests are a wonderful layering item for Spring (and Fall, for that matter, where they fit neatly under jackets and overcoats).  And we’re loving the blossoming variety of Vest styles that we’re seeing this season.  Charlotte Ronson’s vest is the closest to the standard tailored variety we’ve been seeing for the last few seasons - but this one feels more like a sleeveless jacket.  Cynthia Steffe’s vest feels more utility - like a woman’s version of a fisherman’s vest, paired with pretty florals instead of trouser pants.  And Ports 1961’s vest goes bold with metallic embellishments and a full-length silhouette.  So go on, have some fun with Vests - and don’t be afraid to contrast styles - masculine with feminine, soft with hard, and shine with matte.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Vibrant Yellow

Vibrant Yellow at Cynthia Steffe, Preen, and Monique Lhuillier.


Style tip?  What we love about vibrant yellow is that it’s upbeat, yet somehow relaxed (think "mellow yellow").  It looks great on tanned and darker skin tones.  For Asian women, try a bright shade of yellow (like the sunny shade seen at Preen).  What color shoes to pair with yellow?  You can’t go wrong with grey.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Contrasting Textures

Contrasting Textures at A Detacher, Ports 1961, and Monique Lhuillier.


Style tip?  How do you turn a simple monochromatic outfit into something fabulous?  Mix things up with contrasting textures. Mix smooth with rough, knits with wovens, shiny with matte.  The more contrast, the better when you’re working with a simple color palette.

What do you think?  How would you experiment with contrasting textures?  Share your thoughts in the comments!
