It’s All About the Leggings

Posted by kristin On April - 29 - 2010

Lady Gaga Shredded Leggings In a season that’s turned its fashion focus to the legs a weird thing has happened, it shouldn’t surprise me but for some reason it did. The trend for the last couple years leaned toward leggings so I thought it was logical that with the focus on legs and short skirts and shorts that leggings would be on their way out. But leave it to the legging industry to come up with leggings that show off the legs while covering them. Believe it or not, shredded leggings and shear... more

What’s New in Denim

Posted by kristin On April - 27 - 2010

Ciara Shredded Jeans For every season there’s a denim, so what’s new in denim for Spring/Summer 2010? Well, nothing really NEW has come out in denim for the Spring/Summer 2010 season but a lot of old trends are being recycled. The biggest one is what is called the boyfriend short or what I like to call the Construction Worker from the Village People Shorts. Yep, think out of the closet late 1970’s shorts with a hemline so high the pockets hang out and cleverly placed holes and shredding that... more

Kate Moss Nautical Look Nautical looks have been around for a long time, coming and going on the runways like the tides. So it’s no surprise that they’re back again and with just a little tweak here and there they’re updated for the 2010 season. As usual, the nautical look is defined by the use of red, white and navy blue, sometimes touches of light blue, grey and black and prints that include stars, stripes, and anchors. The cuts are pretty much preppy but there are ruffles and enough unexpected... more

Accessory Trend Prediction for 2010

Posted by kristin On April - 17 - 2010

Heidi Klum Pink Handbag So I’ve seen and reported on the fashion trends they’re pushing at us this season and frankly it’s a little depressing. Head to toe denim looks, tattered clothing, heavy clogs and mules. It’s not that these trends are bad but they’re not the way I envision a spring wardrobe, quite the opposite in fact. I can’t believe I’m alone in this and I expect others will want to be trendy but will still want to feel fresh, and bright and springy. So I think we’ll see... more
