Spring/Summer Trends 2009 Revisited

I reposting my three post on the trends for the spring and summer here because a lot of the spring/summer clothes are in the stores now. Oh and its 70 degrees outside. YAY!

There are too many spring fashion trends to count. How are you suppose to count all the trends that 100s of designers put each spring? Well you start with what colors stood out. For some reason, the only colors that popped were light grays, pinks, creams, and yellows. Jeans could range anywhere from skinny skinny jeans to wide boyfriend jeans. Spring dresses will be light and airy with lots of ruffles. Also look for oversized accessories from huge purses to huge necklaces. As the spring cool turns into the spring heat, jackets will be de rigueur for anyone who wants to layer a look, especially jackets with a slim fit and cuffed sleeves. Last but not least, structured heels are still a must.

Like I said before, there are entirely too many trends to count for this coming spring, but as usual, the overachiever in me wants to bring you another Polyvore chock full of trends. Let’s recap shall we? There are going to be ruffles, plenty of pastels to go around, tailored jackets, structured shoes, and jeans, jeans, and more jeans. Now I want to tell you about the other trends that are going to be out there in the streets because I know some of you do not like the airy, floaty side of spring. This one is for my rocker, glamour, glitzy chicks. Black and white were also big colors for spring. You are going to want to buy caged heels and sandals. I saw a pair at Bebe that were so cute. A lot of their shoes look strangely similar to some that I know I saw on a few big named designers’ runways. *wink wink* Anyway moving on. You also might want to be on the look out for big mini skirts (oxymoron huh), rhinestones, platform shoes, sheer fabrics, satin and silky fabrics, jumpsuits, and unfortnately for the people who will try these and fail miserably, HAREM PANTS!

I’ve got more Spring 2009 fashion tips out there for you. Remember when I said nudes, pastels, blacks, whites, and light, floaty colors were in? Well they still are, but this spring is going to be the spring of contradiction. Bright, bold colors are also in. One-shouldered, body conscious, wrapped (not banded) dresses are in for the spring. If you need a hint, just look at Alexander Wang or Balmain for Spring 2009 to get a hint. You also need to be on the lookout for ripped jeans in all kinds of colors, tints, and dyes. Something that is going to be big is the trend of shopping your own closet or swapping with a friend. That is something smart fashionistas do.

Couture Spring 2009

Tonight I bring you a sample of my favorite spring 2009 couture collections.

I fell in love with neutral colors featured by Elie Saab. The dresses were ruffled and beaded. It was a really feminine, yet strong collection. It was amazing as usual.

John Paul Gaultier’s collection was very 80’s looking. It also looked like it was inspired by architecture. It reminded me of Madonna’s “Express Yourself” video. Maybe he was using his previous work for his inspiration. Either way it was hot, and his show featured two black models, Sessilee Lopez and Jourdan Dunn. Awesome!!

John Galliano really did himself up this time. The Dior spring 2009 collection was amazing. Galliano was inspired by the old Flemish masters. You could see that right away with the detailing in the big bold sleeves and luxurious hats. He also had some New Look dresses in the mix as well. The colors were vibrant and the beading and ruffles were terrific. Even though some of the dresses looked like Lil Bo Peep, I could dig it.
