It's been a cold and rainy winter for many of us, but it's time to move on. Shed that vest and kick off those boots--it's springtime, people, so let's talk spring fashion. Whether it's clothing, accessories, or footwear, spring trends in fashion design will bring both audacious and classic additions to your closet.
Spring fashions mean apparel design in bloom. Check out 2007's hot floral patterns.
- Make your evenings irresistible with an empire chiffon dress trimmed in embroidered flowers or flower-lace accents.
- Go sweet 'n' rosy with soft floral print blouses and skirts in shades of ruby, carnation, and blush.
Stepping Out in Style
This spring, watch out for both daring and traditional fashion designs in footwear.
- Compliment your short shorts or micro-minis in sling-backs, peep-toes, or hot ballet flats.
- Put a little bounce in your step--cork and Lucite are the materials of the moment for the heels of your sandals and pumps.
Accessories Bring Back Flirty
Fashion design doesn't stop at clothes. Check out the newest trends in accessories.
- Whether it's black, metallic, or clear, arm bangles and cuffs are in for spring.
- Drop earrings, lariats, and link bracelets prove that seductive jewelry is back.
Hair and Makeup Tips
Hair and makeup are two oft-overlooked features of fashion. Not this spring!
- Short is in! Consider the razor-blunt bob, adorable pixie cut, or the layered, feathery 'do.
- A light bronzer and lipsticks in juicy, fruit-inspired shades are a must for warmer weather.
With a new season come hot new fashion and apparel designs. So check 'em out--you've got a whole spring wardrobe to assemble!
