Spring 2010

In contrast to Fall's hard core rocker style, Spring brings a softer sentiment, like a gentle rain. With muted pastels, the lines break the mold of this season for something distinctively sunnier. Plaids take the form of prairie dresses. Grandpa Cardigan sweaters reappear for men, some of which are seen sporting pompadour hairdos. Florals are on the loose, spread on a flower bed of bright colors -- like eye-popping purples. A personal fav: BCBGs yellow mod dress, taking something old, adding a new flavor and making it ultra-modern.

No matter the change of season/ style, hold onto the basics because they never seem to go out of fashion. More fashion news to come!
