Spring Trends 2007

Happy New Year! It's time to look ahead and plan your Spring/Summer 2007 wardrobe. Fashion no longer dictates to just one style. Fashion is full of choices for all ages, body types and lifestyles so select the ones that apply to you. Here is an overview of the new season's trends.

1. Overall Trends: Minimalist or Futuristic-structured, A-line shapes in black and white or geometric prints
Feminine-very billowy, sheer shapes in floral prints
Sporty-layered T-shirts and anorak jackets all made in athletic fabrics like
mesh, nylon and jerseys

2. Color: Black/white, navy/white-always a springtime favorite
Neutrals-sands, creams, taupes, and grays
Brights-yellow, orange, electric blue, green, violet
Metallics- silver and gold for day and night
Prints- florals, stripes and dots

3. Fabrics: Soft knits, lace, eyelets, organza, chiffon, beaded, linens and fabrics with lycra

4. Dresses: The #1 trend of the season-Bubble, baby doll, shifts, wrap, empire and drop waist
Hemlines are at or above the knee

5. Blouses: Poet and bell sleeves, ruffles, light weigh fabrics (you'll need camisoles)

6. Skirts: Layered ruffles, A-line, pencil

7. Pants/Shorts: Wide leg, slouchy pants
Shorts worn to the knee like last summer
Leggings and slim pants are hanging around but are on the back burner

8. Accessories: Wear lots of chunky bangles
Jewelery made of clear lucite

9. Handbags: Large, over sized in silver metallic or white
Clutch bags for evening

10. Shoes: Chunky wedges
Ballet flats

Which trends will you choose?

Thanks for all of the trend setters for 2007. It's always good for someone to confirm your fashion choices. I guess this means that I should go shopping! Enjoy and be blessed!

Greetings Roz and Blessed New Year!

I have a question - rather I have a battle and need your help. I now work virtual from home and have no need to get dressed-up anymore. The voices in my head tell me different - any suggestions on a type of "style" that still is comfortable, professional, and a little Fru-Fru. What about types of fabric? Since I have been working from home - I have gained wieght (because - elestic waistbands give) I feel I still need to have some-sort of pride -even when in the house.
Thanks for the suggestions

Ceeflosew, I would suggest using garmets made from comfortable fabrics. Fabrics like knits (made from good quality cotton, viscose or cashmere) or fabrics with lycra.
Knits will give you a closer fit and not look so crumpled and fabrics with lycra will have some give. Fitted T-shirts, wrap tops, A-line skirts and pants with a mid-rise (pants that stop at the navel or just right below) with a straight leg. I hope this helps!
