Adriana Lima a Modest Supermodel

It seems that most top models from all over the world correspond to the particular stereotype and life style when their biography is examined. Supermodels are mainly too ambitious women with some delusions of grandeur, though. They aspire to exploit all their beauty and grace gifted by nature, youth when they are fifteen to twenty and the diligence to earn as much money as possible to become the idol for the weaker sex and the object of desire from the stronger sex.

Signet Rings Sign of Reputation and Power

Back to the Future: Concise Style Guide to Spring 2010 Hot Trends

Saturday, 13 February 2010

spring 2010 hot trends When looking at the hottest spring 2010 fashion trends, two main tendencies spring to the eye - clothing is becoming more formal, while shoes and accessories flourish to luxury. However, let's dwell on each spring wardrobe staple separately. Spring 2010 is all about mixing the outrageous with the elegant. There is a nod to trends of the past, but this spring, fashion is taking a big step in a new direction. It's about smart and sexy looks paired with sporty and delicate styles.

Neutral tones create that elegant, barely there look. Champagne, beige and all shades of grey are in. Part of the reason why this neutral color style has emerged is because there is so much print and energy in other trends this season, which suggests that neutrals will also outlive these other trends.

Everything from boyfriend sweaters to fitted pants is coming in bold geometric patterns and animal prints. This trend both complements and contrasts the neutral tone style. Stripes are still in, but not in their usual form. Expect stripes to take on a new almost optical illusion feel. Heavy print leggings are going to be especially hot for spring. Coats, blazers and vests are still in, but now they're worn with shorts and leggings. Big shoulders are coming back as well, meaning that the 80s are now officially vintage (see Isabel Marant, Donna Karan, Versace, and Carlos Miele). When it comes to dresses, wear-everywhere pull on styles in classic colors like white and navy will keep you going throughout the season (see Akris black dress, Bottega Veneta sheath dress and Max Mara wrap dress). Asymmetric styles are also popular so don't hesitate to buy a one-shoulder dress (see Jasmine Di Milo, Phillip Lim, and Versace). Keep outfits plain and simple and go with bold, colorful accessories - large necklaces, look-at-me cuffs and decadent cocktail rings.

Fashion trends for spring 2010 feature some of the hottest skirts in several different styles that combine tight tailoring, fun and airy details and playful prints. Each of these classic skirt styles has a fresh twist that makes them suitable for the office and with a few changes in your outfit, the skirts become an easy to wear casual outfit.

Miniskirts made a big come back for the fall and winter, and they are not going anywhere yet. Instead of loose, tiered or ruffled miniskirts, spring 2010 calls for very structured miniskirts with high waists and everything from front pockets and buttons to thick ties at the waist and structured tailoring. The great thing about structured miniskirts is with the right tailoring the skirts work for so many body styles. If you have a slim frame, the high waisted look with a thick tie gives you more of a flattering waist, petite types benefit from the instant elongation of the mini and curvy types with tucks and gathered tailoring accentuates what you have but keeps everything flattering.

Look for styles that are utilitarian in color and style, khaki and black satin are the hottest for spring 2010. This style pairs well with loose blouses that you can tuck into your skirt and even pair with a jacket or vest. Also, open toed heels or platform wedges in bright colors really keep the long legged look going.

Last year, stiff and full, puffy skirts were all the rage, but this year it is tight bandage skirts that are the latest fashion trend. The fitted look is a hot spring trend that works well with perpetually crisp looks, including black and white styles. For this year, look for bandage skirts that are in tiered bands, ribbon bands or solid color blocks. This style pairs well with fitted tops, thick belts and cutout platform pumps.

Every spring, floral prints are a huge hit and this year is no different. Instead of huge, orderly blooms though, busy floral prints of clustered or random florals are the fashion trend. Spring fashion runways saw skirts of every style in dark, light and bright colored floral skirts which translate easily into everyday wear.

T-Shirts, blouses and tunics just had a makeover. Now they're short in the front and long in the back. This style is called the fishtail shirt. The back can be as short as a few inches longer than the front or as far down as the knees. As with anything extreme style, dress the t-shirt of tunic with something simple, like a pencil skirt, so that this fantastic trend can take the show.

Although the days of torn jeans and patches don't seem too long ago, they're already back! They hint towards a fierce, strong character similar to the military jackets that have been in the spotlight these last few seasons. A great thing about this trend is that fashionistas can manifest this trend with what they already have in their closet.

Another hit for the spring season is colored tights, which sometimes are painfully bright, but funny and make quite a fashion statement (see Alexander McQueen, Marni, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton).

For the last 10 years, skinny pants have dominated legwear. This trend ultimately led to the legging revolution of the last five years. This spring, there are much looser pants, suggesting a possible end to the skinny jean decade (Limi Feu Balenciaga, Ralph Lauren). In spring 2010, lace-up shorts, v-neck sweaters and fashion-conscious sweatpants make an effortlessly sexy and competitive look.

Footwear fashion for spring 2010 advocates maximum height, both wedges and ultrahigh heels of surprisingly bizarre shapes and designs (see Versace spring collection for fancy footwear that look more like accessories, not shoes).

Speaking of accessories: this spring, belts are elegantly simple and understated, bracelets are wide and chunky, preferably gold and decorated with large stones or delicate metalwork. The same goes for rings: they are big and chunky.

Whether its high-end designer or main-street chic, just a few well chosen investments in some of the season's hottest styles will keep your look up-to-the-minute and fashion-ready for spring.

The news is not the corrective lingerie with the effect to make the shapes tighter and slimmer.
