Fashion Week..What to Wear Spring Fashion 2010

For those who didn't know, this past week was Fashion Week. All the stars were hitting shows like L.A.M.B., Jason Wu, Isaac Mizrahi and BCBG just to name a few. For someone like me, it's the best time of year!

With that being said, I have decided to pull the 4 hottest trends from Fashion Week and show how someone like you and me can pull these outfits off.

1. Soft - Soft can mean either texture or color to different people. This season, pick any article of clothing in jersey, cashmere or silk. This will ad a layer of drapery that will smooth over curves simply. Comfort doesn't have to be compromised in order to pull off this look.

Pair this silk camisole from J Crew with a pair of straight leg jeans and a Gladiator sandal. The top comes in 7 colors and all are beautiful for Spring.

2. Gray/Silver - This color will quickly separate you from the black pack. Gray is softer on the skin than a black or navy. Shiny silver on the other hand, is more mysterious instead of flashy.

Gray’s best feature is that it highlights line and detail. So choose fabrics that emphasize cut and craftsmanship. Gray pairs beautifully with red. There is no need to go over board with silver because you are already shimmering. So try dramatic makeup instead.

First top is by Cynthia Vincent and can be found at BlueFly. The second top is a Ruched Sleeve Blazer from Topshop.

3. Prints - Designers are given the ability to come up with amazing patterns and designs that were not even a thought 10 years ago. Stamped, woven, handpainted or silk-screened all bring an amazing detail to the table than ever before.

Knowing my friends as I do, too much print will send them running. So everyone needs to ask themselves, how much attention do you want to attract. A printed skirt with pair nicely with a neutral top or a patterned shirt with pair nicely with skinny or boyfriend jeans. No matter what, please remember that these garments and accessories must satisfy a “noncompete” clause!

This dress can be found at Urban Outfitters.

4. Shorts - This is my favorite trend for this Spring! There were so many shorts on the runway during Fashion Week. From pleated, poufed and cuffed. The reality of this trend is you need to be comfortable showing off bare leg if you want to pull this look off smoothly.

This look is easier worn in the company of friends and family, in an informal setting. If you want to dress it up, pick a longer short. Otherwise embrace the trend and go all out!

These shorts can be found at Urban Outfitters.
