The groovy, organic mix of colors were seen almost every foot walked in the streets back in the ‘60s; push forward to spring of 2010 and this trend will continue to live on exhibiting peace, love and happiness but in a more private sense. Intimates have been ignored for far too long as being a simple outfit to throw on while dreaming off, who knows, possibly of a cuter outfit; however, this spring will exemplify tunics, bras, robes, nightgowns and more in this more playfully innocent light. Lines like Cosabella, Donna Karan, Flora Nikrooz and Natori have begun to involve the unrefined flow of colors to their lines.
Time to Think Out of the Box!
There is no need for anyone to spend boat-loads of money on trends, when in reality we can make them ourselves. Who doesn’t love the feeling of wearing one of your own genius creations? It is like transforming into a fashion designer with each and every project you take on, so start to challenge your concealed talent!
Tie-dye apparel, accessories and intimates will still be praised this upcoming spring so now is the time to start making pieces to complete the harmonious outfits. Take a visit to any low-priced store, like Wal-Mart or Target, and purchase anything that’s white and you think will come in handy. It could range from a scarf, purse or headband, to an over-sized t-shirt, sundress, or elastic bra. While you are there get a tie-dye kit and combine any colors your heart desires, remember this is your creation! If you would like to go a step further, you can buy a pack of iron-on transparencies—found at stores like Target or Office Max—and print out a black peace sign from your computer, iron it onto your shirt and then tie-dye. Another addition before you put this creation down, is to cut the bottom of the article of clothing into fringes and knot the ends of each. If not that, go to any fabric store, purchase a fringe trim and sew it onto the clothing or accessory. These steps can be done on anything you could imagine! Just go out, get your supplies and apply these simple guidelines.
