2008 Spring Fashion Preview
By Helen Lee
Whether you're going away for spring break or staying in town, find out what's in style for spring 2008!
Prints GaloreWhen 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 DenimsAlthough 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 PaletteDitch 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.
