Fashion Trends 2008 - 7 Fresh Spring Styles And How To Wear Them

Mar 20, 2008
Are you looking for ways to add color and style to your spring wardrobe? This season has lots of pretty things to mix and match with your wardrobe, from flowers to crisp clean styles. You love the beautiful flower colors, and the bold fun prints.

Here are 7 spring styles and how to wear them.

1. Abstract prints: Graphic patterns are amongst the hottest trends right now. With graphic prints, keep your accessories simple and classic. Find a bag in a neutral shade, and keep your jewelry simple.

2. Flowers are big this spring, from grown-up floral dresses, blouses and skirts, to accessories such as brooches and hair accessories. Don't go overboard, especially for the office. Choose one new grown-up floral, and pair it with your neutral separates.

3. Stripes are everywhere this spring, from casual to dressy tops, to skirts and pants. With both vertical and horizontal strips to choose from, go for the stripes that suit your body type. Remember that vertical stripes draw the eye up and down, while horizontal stripes draw the eye sideways. So if you want to appear taller and slimmer, go for the vertical stripes.

4. Safari is hot: Safari styles are comfy and chic for work or for play. Basic khaki can be practical and smart for the office. For a new look, buy a khaki coat, and add a belt. Snazz up a safari dress with an ethnic belt, some metallic shoes or a simple tote bag. Slip a few bangles or cuffs on your wrist for the look of the moment.

5. Red, white and navy: These colors are always spring-like and fresh. You can pair red and white, blue and white, or all three colors. Accessorize navy and white with a pop of red in your shoes or handbag. Or go for a red blouse or jacket, but keep the rest of your outfit simple for work, in a navy pallet.

6. Crayon colors: Bright bags and shoes are popping up everywhere, in crayon colors of yellow, pink, green, blue and grape. Bright bags jump off the shelves in bold clutches or large totes. Avoid looking like a kid going to kindergarten by choosing your crayon colors carefully. An inspired green or yellow bag can still look business like if it has a structured shape. If you work in a conservative industry such as financial services, keep your crayon brights for casual days at the office, and stick to classy looks when meeting clients.

7. Black and white: The ever-classic black and white looks serious yet fresh. What's more, everyone can wear this combo, from fair haired women to those with dramatic coloring. Jackets and skirts or pants are simple, easy ways to pair black and white for an instant look that takes you from boardroom to evening.

Buy a black cropped jacket to pop over a crisp white shirt. Add a feminine note with black and white spectator shoes, stilettos, or sandals. You can also add a splash of color to your black and white outfit, with a sleek clutch in lemon yellow, or bright green. Wow - you'll look put-together and up to date, for office or weekend.
