TREND ALERT: SOCKS & HEELS

Have you tried socks with heels yet?  I’m starting to admire this look as I see more & more from fashion spreads and runway shows.  Apparently wearing shoes preferably heels with sock is the new trend . We first saw this trend on the runways last year when designers sent down their models decked out in fabulous shoes paired up with socks. It seems like  just a matter of time before  fashionistas start warming up to this trend. Will I be trying it?  you bet I will ( I am good at trying new trends).  Would you try it? Well If you gonna do it here a few  things to keep in mind; Go for neutral tone similar to your shoes (pictured right). Thin fabrics work better, try sheer or opaque (pictured left). Avoid..anything too girlie (ruffles). They look great when teamed up with sandal heels.

TRIBAL CHIC

Along with the feminine ruffles, pretty pastels and Peek-A-Boo dresses the concept of Tribal Chic is everywhere for spring/summer 2010. Tribal prints are designs that are earthy, and feature geometric shapes that really make an outfit. They can be worn in the form of skirts, to shoes or even jewelry for an instant tribal appeal. You can also wear them in the form of dresses and tops for a classic tribal essence. Designers such as Gucci, Diane Von Furstenberg and Dries Van Noten have featured exotic African inspired pieces as part of their runway collections. This print is undoubtedly among one of the top must haves for this season.

MAN UP & PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD

Still think your ballet slippers are the perfect pair of flats? Think again. For spring 2010 we’re putting away our dancing shoes for the super trendy Brogues also known as oxford shoes. Brogues are a quintessential piece in mens’ shoe closets but they aren’t just for men. Women are embracing this menswear classic, pairing them with anything from cuffed jeans, to skirts  and dresses. They are comfortable and will add a touch of masculinity to your style giving you a vintage look thats adds character. Celebrity fashionistas Sienna Miller (pictured top left) and RiRi (pictured top right) have been photographed sporting this look. I personally adore these classics.

PEEK-A-BOO

Femininity is one of the main assets of the cutout fashion trend for this season. The skin flashing sections of the attires are placed on delicate spots of the body in order to offer an outstanding and at the same time flattering look. This trend can be seen on all fashionable items, from dresses to shirts to pants to leggings and even shoes. More for the edgy fashionista, this trend has been sported on runways across the globe and most recently for spring/summer 2010.  Pictured below is fashion icon RiRi in her Peek-A-Boo dress.

Leather For Warmer Weather

Leather jackets have always been a wardrobe staple and are a timeless trend but this season the leather look has extended itself far beyond the jacket. Leather accents, from shorts to dresses, were scattered throughout the runway shows. For this spring season, the leather trend isn’t strict and is all about accents, meaning you can incorporate the look into your closet via virtually any form of clothing.  Whether you prefer to take your style cues from the runway, the stars or the streets, look around for leather accents this season as they are set to be big. Pictured below is Angie a true stylista!

SPRING/SUMMER STATEMENT SHOES

Handbags are no longer the focal point of a look – This season is all about the SHOES! Statement shoes for spring/summer are sky high & include cut-outs, bright colors, feathers, fringes & ruffles. Embellishments are bolder, heels are higher & platforms are chunkier. This season, die-hard fashionistas are in danger of doing serious damage to their ankles, all in the name of fashion. Below are a few of my picks from my favorite online shop ASOS.
