I Want! I Want! Spring 2010 Fashion
With Spring less than 30 days away I thought I'd do some spring and summer trends to get us ready! This post is for fashion, but one for beauty is on its way! Here are some looks I'm really into this year and will be big this season.
Not all of this is in my price budget, but here are some items I'm keeping my eye out for when I go shopping. I like to cut out pictures and keep a list in my phone of items to add to my closet that will work with clothes I already have (gotta keep my savings resolution in line!) so I know what I need/want and don't just randomly buy stuff I'll only wear once.
Marc by Marc Jacobs "Flash- Leola" Hobo
If you see any knock-offs, please message me! I'm in love with this purse, but can't justify the price tag. Jen from The Look 4 Less has already sent me some cute inspired by bags, thanks again you're such a doll! Spring time is fun for accessories because color is always in. Having a Bright Bag is a great touch to any outfit and can definitely transform your outfit. Nude Purses (well anything neutral really)and Drawstring Bucket Bags will also be a huge hit this summer as well.
Michael Kors Resin Bracelet Watch
White is huge every summer and spring and I love how great White and Bright watches look. They match everything and add a touch of chicness to any outfit.
Tiffany & Co, Elsa Peretti Open Heart Hoop Earrings
Hoop earrings are a must! They look great year-round, but the warm weather always inspires me to wear more eye-catching accessories. Have you ever noticed how men love hoop earrings? I think it's so funny! I saw these on Anne Hathaway in this month's InStyle magazine and just fell in love with them! Honey, if you're reading this, my birthday is coming up soon!
Forever 21 Bangle
GG stylist, Eric Daman, said Chunky Bracelets will be the next statement piece, so load your arm up!
Nine West Getby
This season cork wedges will be everywhere, not that they aren't in every year, but they were all over the catwalks in fall so expect to see them. I find it really hard to find wedges that are 4" or less (making me 6 ft tall!), so I quickly nabbed these ones last week when I saw they were only 31/2 inches. I should be getting them tomorrow, just in time for the weekend! Shoes are always a great way to also add color to your outfit, but I prefer tan/nude because they go great with all skintones and make your legs look extra looooong.
Halston Heritage Cocktail Dress
Orange anyone? I love this feminine dress with Ruffles in a this season's hot color! Wear it with some nude heels and add a bright bag like blue or yellow and you're ready to dance all night. This one is a double whammy with the grecian One Shoulder look which is going to be uberly trendy this season. Plus, toning up your arms is said to be the easiest thing to see results (note to self: start hitting the gym!).
Telegraph Avenue Dress
Boho looks are still going strong too. I don't usually wear a lot of prints, but do like this style (think Vanessa Hudgens) so I'm going to try and break out of my mold this year.
Halston Heritage V-Neck Dress
Awww, the classic white dress. This is the one we've seen SJP wearing in the SATC 2 preview pics. Just remember to wear something under like a slip to keep it from being see-through!
Target's Xhilaration Floral Romper
Florals and onesies/rompers/jumpers whatever you want to call them is also a must have. I searched everywhere for a cute romper last year and couldn't find any cute affordable ones, but I've seen them a lot so far this season. I bought this one last week and can't wait for warm weather so I can bust it out. The only downside is using the restroom, so make sure you find a easy/comfortable one.
Hudson "Carly" Jeans
Anyone can wear white bottoms, you just need to pay attention to the material and cut. See this post for some hints on finding great jeans.
Alternative Apparel Crop Top
90210 is coming back with a vengeance on style. It's so funny to see 80s and 90s shows/movies and see that everything they're wearing is in style (but thankfully, updated). This month's People Style Watch had a feature with the hit 90s show's style and celebrities rocking the looks now. I just bought a crop top from Forever 21 and since I definitely do not have a flat toned stomach, I've worn it with a cute tank underneath and it looked really good- at least I was told so. Maybe with my NY Resolution I'll be able to ditch the tank by summer (probably not with my genes, but I can definitely work for the goal)!
Old Navy Chambray Boyfriend Shirt
Chambray is back! Wouldn't this top look cute with some white shorts, tan belt, bright bag, and some sandals? I can't wait to wear this look!
Other hot trends I didn't include is Blue- laguna, aqua, turquiose, Fringe, Mini- shorts, dresses, and skirts will definitely stay short this season, Clogs- my favorite shoe from the 7th grade is back in style, but luckily a LOT cuter, and Digital Prints- fabrics with loads of color and a mix of patterns that are well blended.
What are you keeping your eye out for? What trends are you excited to wear/see? Did I leave anything out? Will you be wearing any of these trends?
