Skinny Legs at Vera Wang, Twinkle by Wenlan, and LAMB.


Style tip?  The Skinny Leg silhouette continues for Spring 2010.  Wear it with a voluminous top (as at Twinkle).  Alternatively, keep the look skinny from top to bottom and wear a fitted top with your skinny pants, as at LAMB.  Want another idea?  Up the drama factor with fun pieces - a furry shrug and a bold, textured necklace.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Modern Garden Party Dresses

Style tip?  Elegantly structured dresses in bright colors and abstract patterns are becoming a hallmark of Spring 2010 fashion.  And they’re just the kind of dress you would pull out for a modern garden party.  Wear them with a non-traditional shoe - instead of pairing them with a pair of demure pumps, why not try booties (a la Twinkle) or thick strap sandals (as at Marc by Marc Jacobs)?

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Harem Pants

Style tip?  We first saw harem pants making an (unlikely) comeback for Spring/Summer 2009.  Seems that they’re here to stay for another season, despite their difficult-to-wear silhouette.  To best flatter your figure in harem pants, pair them with a close fitting top (for a small-over-big silhouette) and high, high heels.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Extra Long Blazers

Style tip?  The hip-length blazer is the menswear blazer standard - but Spring 2010 is seeing extra long blazers that extend past the hip.  Wear the extra long blazer open, paired with a close-fitting base layer, as seen at Diane von Furstenberg and Yigal Azrouel.  Or wear it closed, as seen at Erin Fetherston, tied with an elegant, feminine bow.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Microstripes

Microstripes at Cynthia Steffe, Lela Rose, and Tuleh.


Style tip?  Horizontal stripes are nothing new, but this season’s twist takes these linear patterns and shrinks them.  Microstripes are populating the runway, mesmerizing us with their optical qualities.  Try microstripes paired with solids or other patterns - while the metallic jacket and shorts are a fun foil for the microstriped bandeau top, the elegantly patterned jacket at Lela Rose adds a new level of sophistication to the simple stripe.  Or you can do as Tuleh does and contrast the microstripe against smooth, bare skin.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Elegant Bows

Elegant Bows at Erin Fetherston, Carolina Herrera, and Lela Rose.


Style tip?  Bows aren’t just for little girls - they’re all grown up (and quite elegantly crafted) on the Spring 2010 runways.  Use a bow to cinch your waistline, as at Erin Fetherston.  Do as Carolina Herrera does and draw attention towards your face with a bow that recalls the silhouette of a necklace.  Or build a bow into the architecture of a blouse or skirt, as Lela Rose does.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Statement Necklaces

Statement Necklaces at LAMB, Reem Acra, and Ports 1961.


Style tip?  How to wear a statement necklace?  The easiest way is to pair it against a basic background - a top or dress in a simple shape and solid color.  But if you want to try something a little more challenging, the runway provides some fun inspiration.  Try layering a bunch of normal sized necklaces in similar shapes, as seen at LAMB.  Or go bold and try not one but Two statement necklaces as Reem Acra did - note that even though they’re different in silhouette, they still relate to each other with the beading.  Or pair pattern and your statement necklace - but keep the shape of your silhouette simple - like the look at Ports 1961.
