Fashion Runway Hits are Fabulous

I was flipping through this months Elle. There’s some terrific style information in it! Looks like we’ve made it full circle to the 1970s. For some of us we’ll get to relive some of our favourite fashions but there may be some ‘yuck’ in the group too.

Flirty cuts in pretty colors with ruffles and frills are in. Remember the vibrant balloon tops – they are back. As are the wool wrap tops and wool jackets. Super high heels have also made their way back into the picture. Your jewelry selections are wide open for mixing and matching. Big and bold will certainly fit the current trends.

Elle says that these items are runway hits: croppped sweaters in acrylic, cotton, or wool. Satin wrap tops ranging from long sleeves to no sleeves, and asymmetrical skirts.

The skirts are definitely fun and sexy – black is the hotest color, sequens are very popular, and beaded silk is definitely in. Add some sexy earrings or a sparkly necklace and your ready for a night on the town.

Straight leg wool pants are also in, as well as wool jackets with faux fur collars. Chiffon and satin are big and sleeveless cotton knit turtlenecks are ever so in style.

Accessories are bright and bold – hot pink clutches, chintz hand bags, satin and metallic pumps, ballerina flats. Your jewelry can be a mix of bright and bold, and more muted tones. With this years fashions almost anything goes.

Striped Dresses

Fashion trends come and go but a major trend that has not lost its charm is striped dresses. Women just love striped dresses. Reason behind this all time favorite women’s fashion trend, once again becoming one of popular Spring 2010 fashion trend, is that it is apt for women of every age and size.

Talking about variety in striped dresses, it’s numerous. Just name it and you’ll find it. One can go for striped tee, striped sweater dress, striped shirt dress or even striped evening wear. Striped tees are best for casual wear. For a formal occasion or party, one can opt stylish striped gown or mini dress.

Three types of stripes are very much in fashion today. These are vertical stripes, horizontal stripes and diagonal stripes. Vertically striped dresses are best for ladies who want to elongate their body. It is apt for plus size women as vertical stripes pose a slimmer look. Ladies who are too slim and would like to go for stripe tee or sweater dress should opt for horizontal stripe, as it will add volume and give a ravishing look as well. Diagonal stripes work well for plus size as well as tall women because diagonal and askew stripes add curves wherever needed, hiding the rest.

Many fashion shows like Bottega Veneta and Givenchy Spring 2010, presented stylish striped dresses. Dresses with stripes can even correct some of the things one is not so proud of. Lot of variety as well as colors are available in striped dresses. One can also go for colorful or nautical striped dress. A black and white striped tee is best for every occasion.
