Sponsored Post: The Haute Five Trends For Spring/Summer ’09
April 1, 2009
As the weather warms up and we start seeing last month’s runway trends being translated into real life, we’ve spotted five trends that are on-point for spring and summer.
1. Metal embellishments
These range from grommets to studs to exposed zippers, and can be surprisingly pretty and easy to pull off. These Jeffrey Campbell shoes ($148) are intricate and fun, and more arresting than basic black.
Patterned or beaded pieces in earthy color palettes will be all over, including on accessories. This handmade, eco-friendly tote ($100) is on-trend, but not fashion-victim trendy.
We like this hot pink color in ladylike silhouettes, like this Vivienne Tam dress ($144). Resist the urge to take it to an ‘80s extent, lest you end up looking like Jem.
4. Graphic prints
Big, bold prints in geometric shapes can look refined if the silhouette is feminine, like this full skirt ($69).
5. Big jewelry
Accent a sharp outfit with one big statement piece, like this resin pendant necklace ($230).
