Breaking Down the Runway: Spring 2009

With help from Teen Vogues March edition, I'm going to break down Spring 2009's hottest runways looks into more affordable and comfortable looks. For starters, the short bright party dress was super popular on the runway. There were also some bright floral prints and a symmetrical designs to keep the looks fresh. One shoulder is definitely a huge look for this season. If you want a spunky party dress I would for sure check out Twelve by Twelve (online) If you get a plain dress, try it with some patterned tights, a fun bag or crazy heels to keep the look fresh. Different graphic prints have spotted this season with designer Narciso Rodriguez. I personally love these types of prints because it's fun to mix and match as long as you do it the right way.

Never mix plaid with anything, it always looks horrible. Florals and stripes are pretty easy to mix but you just have to be careful, it goes without saying that no one wants to be a fashion disaster. If your going to play it safe though, try mixing a graphic skirt with an old t-shirt and some converse. It's always fun to throw in comfortable pieces with a more updated look. Metallic mini skirts are another item that you can pair with a tshirt to dress it down or a slinky tank top to dress it up. If skirts aren't your thing, try a pair of bright shorts in pink, or purple. Delia's online actually has some really nice shorts for Spring, and their sizing and such is always great. Well with my advice, and the warm weather to come... I can't wait for springgg !
