Spring into Spring Now. Pining for Anything Sheer

January 7, 2009 • Fashion

Lately it seems we are being repeatedly asked, "what trends for spring I should stock up on now since the sales are so amazing?" Great question and we are more than happy to oblige. As soon as the holidays are over we find ourselves wishing for spring too. And while it is still months away, there is no reason why you can’t start taking advantage of some of the spring trends (and winter sales) now.

One spring trend we are crazy about is anything sheer. Transparent fabrics were all over the Spring ’09 RTW runway as evidenced below.


Sheer from the Spring ’09 Runway:

1. Pringle of Scotland RTW Spring ’09
2. Alberta Ferretti RTW Spring ’09
3. Fendi RTW Spring ’09
4. CNC Costume National RTW Spring ’09
5. Moschino RTW Spring ’09
6. Alexander Wang RTW Spring ’09

How to wear sheer:

Why did we showcase all black? Even though the spring runway color selection ran the gamut from brights to whites…if
you want to wear the trend today, stick with black or dark colors (see below). Buy that short sleeved
top now and wear it with a jacket or sweater. Come spring/summer wear
it with another hot trend, the mini (more on that coming soon) and you are good to go. For evening…go for a sheer black dress now or later.
