We’re a mere 11 days from the first official day of spring. Evenings are growing just a bit longer and the earth is peeping out from its frozen sleep.
That can only mean one thing for the fashion-minded: it’s time to prepare for wardrobe transition!
For weeks I’ve been pouring over the spring ’09 runway fashions piecing together the season’s best looks. Over the next few weeks we’ll take a look at some of the trends I’ve spotted.
Today it’s all about soft hues. The palest pastels are making a huge comeback this spring. Be on the lookout for what I call “toasted banana” (most recently worn by our first lady on inauguration day.) Other palettes to look for are smooth apricots, soft aqua blues, sheer pinks and subtle avocados.
