I know that many fashionistas are still wearing their winter attire, but it is time to move forward and add some warmth and playfulness back into your wardrobes! Luckily for all of us, the looks for spring will undoubtedly revitalize our spirits and awaken our senses… There is a look for everyone and I have never seen such mix of colors and patterns take over runways before. I myself admit to being an addict to wearing black, but it is time, even for me, to dare to break free and add some color to my life.
The looks on the Spring runways shared something in common: Globe-Trotting Glamour! A liberated celebration of all that everyday life is about. The designers showcased mixes of ethnic and otherworld, ardor and femininity, the whole trend being based on bold colors and prints.
There are plenty of choices out there and you can decide on the level of eclectic chic you are comfortable with. Designer Jenna Lyons from J. Crew has designed a totally playful and sophisticated collection we’ll be wearing Spring through Summer. For this J.Crew collection, it’s all about fresh femininity in standout colors, looks that speak to the total happiness of Spring.
Tory Burch also displays warm colors and a very ethnic chic look for Spring.
Alice and Olivia also showcased Globe-Trotting Glamour as the name of their Spring campaign. The looks combine prints, neutrals and bold colors as well. Even animal prints abound.
What shoe is a MUST have? Wedges! Yes ladies, make sure you get yourself a pair.
As to accessories, the cuff bracelet is an easy way to add edginess to any look. Wrist cuffs work with almost any look and designers such as Ralph Lauren made use of the wrist cuff for his western themed spring 2011 collection.
Also, drop earring adds sophistication to almost any look. Check out Global Fashionista’s eco-friendly earrings. You can look good and at the same time support the environment!
So ladies, start planning those vacations and have fun with fashion this spring!
