Style. It's Time to Think Spring


Lauren Dimet Waters for Second City Style Magazine

1. Bold Colors
It doesn’t matter if it’s pastel or neon bright, shinny or matte…color is the way to go this spring. The spectrum of the rainbow is yours to capture in every fabric imaginable. Designers who embraced color on the Spring ’08 RTW runway include: Yves Saint Laurent, Giambattista Valli, Lanvin, Vera Wang, Marni, Burberry Prorsum, Gucci and Narciso Rodriguez.

2. Florals
It’s time to think girly-girl and what better way than with fresh flowers? Prints from peonies to roses to lilies to hydrangeas infested the spring runway. There was virtually no designer that didn’t embrace florals, so you have no excuse not to come up roses this spring. Designers who embraced floral prints on the Spring ’08 RTW runway include: Carolina Herrara, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Prada and Dolce and Gabbana.

3. Transparency
Do you ever dream you are floating on air? It’s time to make your dreams a reality because urethral sheer sexiness is no longer for the boudoir. Daywear and eveningwear have gone sexy in sheer fabrics like chiffon, gauze, organza, tulle and silks. Designers who embraced transparency fabrics on the Spring ’08 RTW runway include: Louis Vuitton, Jil Sander, MaxMara, Dior, Miu Miu, Marchesa and Monique Lhuillier.
