2008 Spring Fashions

Prints Galore

When we say prints, we're not talkin' about those granny-style prints of years past. This season's prints are bold, strong and very flashy, with two of the most popular being stars and flowers. Don't be afraid to mix up your patterns, but be careful you don't leave the house in head-to-toe prints. Try checking out vintage shops to score some fabulous cheap finds. If you're not big on prints, then consider a graphic-printed accessory like a scarf. And now that the snow has melted and the showers have started, put away your winter boots and make a splash in a cute and colorful pair of Wellies! Grab one with a star print, like this one from your local Target.

The New Denims

Although you don't have to say goodbye to your skinnies, wide-leg jeans are makin' an appearance (or should we say, reappearance?) on the denim front. This trend has been slow to start, but we guarantee they'll be spring's must-have clothing! And for anyone who is tired of low-rise jeans, say hello to the high-rise, which trendsetters like Kate Moss and Gwen Stefani have already been wearin' about town for awhile now. Tuck a cool tank or tee into 'em and you'll be stylin' for school.

Bold Color Palette

Ditch the pastels. This season, you'll see an explosion of bright, bold colors like orange, purple, canary yellow, cobalt and hot pink. These eye-popping shades are sure to catch the attention of your crush, plus a few others! If ya can't make up your mind about which color combinations to wear, go the way of colorblocking, which tops our list of favorite spring trends. Big blocks of contrasting colors create the look of colorblocking, and it's seen on everything from tops and dresses to bags and shoes.

    Well, 3 days ago we went to a lake to swim at and I saw my "friend" there. I felt very embarrassed. My mom told me to go play with her, and I asked her if she was still my friend. All she said was "meh". Her family was friendly, they kept on saying hi to me. But I can't afford to loose my relationship with her; if i did, I would start 5th grade with no friends. The only real school friend that I have is my friend from my old school that's visiting the philippines. All of the other friends that I have are people who are related to me by blood.  I just don't want 5th grade to be a bad school year.
