Once the holiday festivities come to an end so will the rocker glam trends of seasons past. Come spring, make room for a whole new wardrobe. Time to trade in your winter blacks and grays for olives and khakis and glitterati sequins for floral prints.
My favorite runway show from Spring 2010 came from Stella McCartney. I felt that her collection was the best at covering a bit of most of the trends for Spring 2010 rather than focusing on just one.
The first big trend for spring is the revival of military inspired looks. The use of olives and khakis can be seen all over the runway. In the first three pictures above you can see this trend demonstrated with a more feminine rather than masculine approach. The first look is a new take on the cargo pant and her wide leg version with pleats comes off as more feminine rather than military. The second is a stylish thermal romper in an ombre print. The third look is a floral/camouflage print dress with a canvas belt that keeps this look feminine and classic.
The next big trend for spring is a feminine look through the use of floral prints and neutral tones in soft silks and lace. The silk pleated floral dress with ruffles is one of my favorite looks from the collection, sure to be an easy and bold way to pull off the feminine floral trend. The next look is a chic, and feminine way to play with different tones and textures in the neutral trend. Here, Stella paired different shades of khaki and a light pink lace top to add a touch of femininity.

In the Lanvin and Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 runway shows the theme was reminiscent of a 1940’s glamour girl. The colors were neutrals such as tans and browns in both wool and satin mixed with black accents to make them feel current. This is a great way to stand out of the sea of black this season. These neutral hues will also last you through the Spring 2010 season.
In the Chloe and Zac Posen runway shows the trend was all about Frontier Spirit. Hannah MacGibbon and Zac Posen embraced prints mixed with bronze accents to create a Bohemian look that one could wear throughout the season and well into Spring. In the Chloe runway show Hannah MacGibbon also played with the use of texture to make this Frontier Spirit theme appropriate for Fall. She used velvets and satins mixed together in metallic tones such as gold and bronze to make this trend, which is usually reserved for Spring, current and relatable for Fall.
