Every season has different trends. Here are the best wearable fashion trends for spring and summer 2009.
Be Bold. For ladies, choose bright tones, pinks, greens, oranges and yellows to add a pop of color to any outfit. Guys, go for blue. Blue hues are big this season. Use blue as a focal point in your outfit. Do not go overboard though, you do not want to look like a smurf.
Ladies, gladiator sandals are huge for spring and summer. Embellishment and details on the sandal complete the look. Pair a casual Grecian dress with gladiator sandals and you have two hot trends. Add statement jewelry to dress it up for nighttime.
One-shoulder tops and dresses are a must-have item this season. This trend reveals just enough while still being sexy. Try a bold monotone dress with one shoulder.
Bejeweled pieces add sparkle to any outfit. A top with an embellished neckline is a great piece to own. No need for jewelry, make your embellished pieces stand out.
Relaxed-fit jeans and crops are all the rage. Because it is a loose fit on bottom, try a fitted top to balance the outfit out. If you are short, pair with high heels for a sexy look.
Go Global. This season tribal, Grecian, Egyptian and Bohemian styles are apparent. Semi transparent fabrics, animal prints, neutral tones and jumpsuits are all included. Pick one theme and stick to it. Keep accessories to a minimum and choose appropriate footwear
Oversized earrings are fashionable this right now. Try adding them to a little black dress. Do not over accessorize. Big earrings plus big necklace equals big disaster.
Men cannot go wrong with a polo. Get one that has some flavor for example, a graphic on the front or dip dyed. You could even grab a shade of blue and have two trends in one outfit.
Add neutral tones like white, grey, tan or khaki to your wardrobe. Try pairing different neutrals together for a fresh look.
Men, try cuffing your pants. The look is back and there are different ways to wear it. Check out plaid and checkered pants too. Add a fedora and cardigan for a stylish look.
Mix and match patterns. Update your suit and tie look by adding bow ties, skinny ties or pair two different patterns together.
Men’s shoes are all about slipping them on. Avoid heavy boots or shoes. Go for boat shoes, flip flops or low tops.
Ombre or “shaded” in French is everywhere. This technique is popular for both men and women. It is the transitioning from light to dark. You can find this trend on polos, shirts, scarves and pants. Ombre is good in small doses.
Just remember fashion is fun. It is uniquely you.
