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.
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.
