Jailhouse Rock

No, Lagerfeld didn't order a giant jail for models to walk through during his Spring show. However, in a way we're taking a cue from old-fashioned jail uniforms with one of this season's newest trends: Stripes! From Prada to Marc by Marc Jacobs, stripes have hit the runways. If you don't want a head-to-toe all striped look, start off with a striped top. More daring fashionistas might try a striped dress. From left, a look at Prada, then, Marc by Marc Jacobs. Below, a picture of old-fashioned jail uniform.

So what else is "in" for Spring? Store away those tight-fitting mini skirts! Looser fitting garmets are more stylish this season, and get excited! Loose means more comfy! Also, lengthen the hem of your dresses & skirts, above-the-knee garmets are in for Spring as oppose to mini dresses & skirts. And, if you haven't noticed by the above pictures, brights are coming out! Get rid of the drab fall color pallette, and brighten it up with bags or accessories. What else is in? White! Try to encorparate this "color" into any of your ensembles this season! It screams Spring!

The loose-fitting designs hit runways this Spring season and can be seen at various shows including these, seen on your left. From left, a look from Christian Dior (pictured with another hot trend: big jewelry! Read more about this trend in my blog post, "The "Neck-lis"t), & Christopher Kane. Below left, pictured is a loose fitting dress from the boys at Proenza Schouler.

In addition to being loose-fitting, each of these looks displays another trend: Brights! The season's runways are covered with bright pieces like these!

Check out these other images from this Spring's shows, sporting the season's newest, of-the-moment trends. Top pictures, from right, bright colors and looser garmets at Prada, longer hems and white at Christopher Kane. Below pictures from left, beauty has trends too! Bright eyeshadow paired with coral/red lipstick at the Christian Dior show, and bright orange/coral nail polish paired with other trends of the season (Big Jewelry!) can also be seen at Christian Dior.

A similar effect on your nails can be created by using a
bright polish! For a fun, Spring/Summer orange, try O.P.I.'s "A Good Man-darin Is Hard to Find" from the Hong Kong Collection, these can be purchased at salons, various websites, and most ULTA locations
