Spring Fashion 2009: The Trends for You
Experts explain why you should (or shouldn’t) invest in seven of this season’s styles.
The Trend: FuchsiaBest for: “Women who aren’t afraid of second looks,” says Lloyd Boston, host of Fine Living’s Closet Cases. But, he says, anyone can pull off a fuchsia accent piece, like a bangle bracelet or a pair of shoes.
How to wear it: For a bold dress, break it up with a belt or a jacket so the color isn’t over-whelming. Keep in mind: Avoid this bright on top if you’re busty or on the bottom if you have full hips. Another word of caution: “Blonds in hot pink can look saccharine,” says Jenna Lyons, creative director of J.Crew. “Wear the color away from the face.”
Worth the investment? Definitely. Spend on one great piece: “You won’t wear the item every day, but you’ll keep it for years,” says Stephanie Solomon, vice president and fashion director of women’s ready-to-wear and accessories for Bloomingdale’s.
