Is anyone else kind of bored with the forcasted Spring 2008 trends in fashion? I’ve browsed through the usual style mags and it just seems like nothing new this year. Safari, floral, goddess, global, trenchcoats, blazers, blah. There’s nothing that really grabs my attention or strikes me as unique or fresh. Not that I hate all those trends or anything, I was just looking for something that hadn’t been done a million times or something so awful that it would stir up a little controversy. My favorite trend has to be the continuation of bright colors. I love brights, especially in accessories and tops, and I’m happy to see the punchy corals, electric blues and saturated yellows are still a go for this upcoming season. This Ralph Lauren Black Label dress is gorgeous, but extremely expensive and my life isn’t so fabulous that I’d have a ton of places to wear it! However, re-interpreting the things I love about the dress into an affordable beachy top is totally doable. This floaty, bright yellow babydoll bra top from Victoria’s Secret can be worn as a halter (like the dress) or as a tube top as well. It’s only $38 and makes me want to leave for the beaches of San Diego right now! I just have to be patient until May! Do you have any spring trends you’re looking forward to or ready to retire?
