Spring Into Spring. Lesson in Geometry

January 19, 2009 • Fashion

More on our series 'the spring trends you should buy and wear now while
the sales are hot!' Or buy now and wear later, but why would you when you can wear it now?

We are living in 3-D, so why shouldn't our clothes reflect it? For spring '09 there was a profusion of big and bold fabric. Designers felt the need to twist, bend and fold and the results where impressive, if not hard to miss.

How to wear it now:

A little goes a long way…especially if you are going for puffy sleeves. Folds are a little more forgiving. You might not find much of this trend on sale as only folds were big for fall. The rest of the look was purely spring and is just starting to hit stores now. So if you find any on sale…snap it up and were it immediately.
