For Spring 2010 the trends stray away from the edginess of seasons past and revert back to classics. What makes Spring 2010 so great is that you will be able to find many styles that will last you a lifetime, not just a season.
TRENCH COAT: First piece that will last you from Spring to Fall is a basic trench coat. This is such an easy and versatile piece which is easy to find at a variety of price points. Wear a trench over a floral dress, striped sweater, or oversized boyfriend shirt with jeans and you have a chic put together look. If you already have a trench coat, or prefer a more unique option, you can opt for a sleeveless trench coat, which you can wear as a dress. This style won’t be as easy to find as your basic trench coat but it can be a simple DIY by removing the sleeves.
NAUTICAL STRIPES: Stripes are a huge trend for Spring 2010. You can choose to wear stripes in a nautical way by pairing a striped top with a navy blazer and white pants. If you prefer an edgier look you can pair an oversized striped sweater or t-shirt with leather pants or cut-off denim shorts.
Stripes are easy to find at a variety of price points, you just need to find the appropriate style to fit your shape.
FLORAL: This season florals are a great way to add a fun feminine print to any wardrobe. There are so many different styles to work within this trend. You can opt for a floral dress or a casual floral print cami. My favorite way to wear this trend however is to go for floral denim.
SOFT NUDES: This season, put your black and grey to rest. The new black is nude! Pairing different shades of nude is a great way to pull off this trend without feeling uncomfortable if your whites/nudes don’t match perfectly. If you are daring you can choose a semi-sheer nude or lace to add an extra touch of sexiness and femininity.
GRAPHIC PRINTS: This season, the best accessory to a mini dress is a graphic print. This is the cool new way to add color and a bit of edge into your wardrobe. The best style for a graphic print is a basic cut. Remember, it’s all about the print and an edgy avant-garde cut may look too over the top. Choose a graphic print in a basic shift or an A-line style.
As seen in some of the best runway shows from Spring 2010, a cool print is what is going to transform your Spring wardrobe from ordinary to fashion forward. Whether you fill your closet with florals, stripes, or graphics prints make it your own by pairing them back to edgy leathers or classic boyfriend blazers. But don’t forget to incorporate staple pieces that you will wear all season long such as nudes and the perfect trench coat.
