Long Cardigans at Lela Rose, Alexander Wang, and Michael Kors.


Style tip?  Stock up on long cardigans.  They’re great for layering under jackets for Fall and Winter, and they’re just as versatile for Spring.  Wear a long cardigan over your minidress or blouse/skirt combo (as at Lela Rose), skinny belt optional.  Or use your cardigan to play with textures, as Alexander Wang does.  Just don’t wear the cardigan sans-bottom, as seen at Michael Kors!  Clearly a runway-only look.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Polka Dots

Polka Dots at Tory Burch, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Reem Acra.


Style tip?  The trend for Spring 2010 is polka dots with a twist.  The new polka dot is seen oversized, textured (instead of printed), and organically shaped.  Wear a single type of dot (like the crocheted dots at Tory Burch), or mix things up with different patterns (as at Marc by Marc Jacobs).  But don’t stop there - you can also mix different textures of dot patterns, as Reem Acra did with a standard-issue polka dotted top paired with a skirt with a more organic dot pattern.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Brightly Colored Shoes

Bright Shoes at Philip Lim, Nanette Lepore, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.


Style tip?  If you want to make a statement with your shoes, go bright and step into a pair of red (or red-orange) shoes.  They provide a colorful foundation for a neutral colored outfit (as at Philip Lim), but they also anchor patterns.  Case in point?  The dresses at Nanette Lepore and Marc by Marc Jacobs.  When you go bold with bright shoes, there’s no need for your handbag to match.  Try a neutral colored handbag (perhaps in a oversized silhouette) to finish off the look.

Spring 2010 Fashion Week Trend: Motorcycle Jackets

Motorcycle Jackets at LAMB, Philip Lim, and Tracy Reese.


Style tip?  Motorcycle jackets are already lending an edgy vibe to Fall fashion, and they’ll continue to keep fashion on its toes for Spring.  You’ll traditionally find motorcycle jackets in black leather (or faux-leather, to be animal-friendly), but for Spring, you’ll have a variety of fabrication and color options.  We love the squeaky cleanliness of a white motorcycle jacket - and the versatility of a khaki colored jacket.  Wear it long (as at Philip Lim) or cropped (as at Tracy Reese) - just add one to your closet.
