Jacqueline Zenn for Second City Style Magazine
Fashion week just wrapped up last week in New York City and the trends of spring/summer 2009 have taken shape.
While some styles are best left to the professionals (a.k.a. the runway
models and those are who are built like them), there are plenty of
popular colors, silhouettes, and accessories that will be highly
wearable for those of us who don’t prowl the catwalks for a living.
The hues that will be all over the place come March include rich chocolate browns, salmons, oranges, and corals, and vivid chartreuse
(yes, bright yellow green may seem a little scary but it can be
flattering – don’t knock it till you’ve tried it for yourself); black and white prints and ombre will also be sticking around.
Judging by the number of elaborate patterns and ethnic-inspired prints
on the runways of designers typically known for their sleek solid
pieces like Narciso Rodriguez and Peter Som, bold prints will be more stylish than ever.
In regard to silhouette, this spring heralds the return of a more
fitted look, with slim sheaths mixed with fitted jackets of all kinds.
