Spring 2010 Trend Predictions

So it's been a really fun week looking at all the new designer collections! In an attempt to understand fashion retail better, I've made my first trend predictions. Throughout the next few weeks I'll post my personal faves from a lot of the collections.

My top ten trends

1. Asymmetrical tops: Be it 80s inspired off-the-shoulder baggy tops or sleek, cut out necklines, asymmetry is in both for casual and evening wear.

2. Bright blue, green, and orange: Either in soft pastel or heavily saturated, these three colors are all over the runways on garments and accessories.

3. Low necklines: Daringly plunging scoopnecks and v-necks are going to be ubiquitous next spring. Layer multiple scoopnecks for a casual feel, or go with a risque v-neck party dress for a night on the town.

4. Cinched waists: Womanly curves are back in style. Medium-width belts cinched high on the natural waist on either skirts or short shorts will be hugely popular in all forms of dress. Peplums on a shirt also emphasize this look.

5. Roman/Grecian inspiration: Designers and consumers alike still will not let this trend go. Tunics worn loose or tied on the natural waist will be very trendy.

6. Cropped pants: Whether worn with a slim leg or a wide tapered leg, the length should be cropped at least a few inches above the ankle.

7. Liquid silk, ruffles, lace: Along with our curves, we are finally getting a chance to indulge in oh-so-feminine fabrics and trims like lace, ruffles, and luxurious silks with liquid-like shines.

8. Cropped jackets and blazers: Body conscious or voluminous, jackets for spring will either be heavily cropped on the arms and on the torso or be a smart blazer style. Sleeves the same length as the torso are also particularly eye-catching and cute.

9. Sheer fabrics: While the average girl may not be as daring as celebrities willing to wear entirely sheer shirts, you can easily wear them as layering pieces to add more detail and texture to any outfit.

10. Peep toe and ankle details: The hottest shoes this season will feature open toes and possibly reach up to ankle length like a mini booty or form a cuff around it for an edgy and urban feel. Combining these with an overtly feminine outfit can make it look more womanly and less little-girly.
