Spring Fashions Must Have
By: Olve Green
Every season fashion forward individuals seek the newest trends. Unfortunately, many run out and purchase "all" the hottest pieces of the moment. But seasonal must haves change perennially. So rather than reinventing one's personal style and purging an entire wardrobe every few months it is much easier and more sensible to purchase key pieces. This season the best way to achieve a fresh contemporary look is to incorporate some of our Spring 2007 must haves!
Hair: Lovely Long Locks!
This Spring one of the most important must haves is a great hair. Stylists suggest growing out short hair dos, trading in ultra glam Mohawks and blowing out highly styled locks. An outfit can have all the right pieces but an outdated hair cut can destroy the best look. So to reiterate, Spring hair should look natural, effortless and be less fussy or edgy. Long feminine wispy curls are one great way to go. Many designers such as Betsy Johnson and Laura Poretzky for Abaeté incorporated longer hair styles during their Spring runway shows for New York's Olympus Fashion Week.
Accessories: From Bling Bling to Shimmering!
Once your hair has been updated you can add just a little glam with crystal encrusted barrettes, gold hair clips and patent leather headbands. These hair accessories will adorn the locks of fashion gurus everywhere this season!
Additionally, gold tones gained a little steam this Fall and will be everywhere in the Spring. Expect to see the stylish and fabulous sporting modern gold jewelry. Renowned New York jewelry designer Donna Distefano's "Madison & 67th" wrist cuff in 18 karat gold, silver and sapphire is a definite must have! The "Madison & 67th" wrist cuff is bold, striking and can be worn as a stand alone piece.
Also, long layered gold necklaces will be ubiquitous this season. These necklaces work well in the board room or a dimly lit dining room. Juicy Couture's Multilayer "Sparrow" Necklace is a great find! Paired with tailored trousers or a sheath dress this layered gold necklace will jazz up sedated separates. Expect to see Hollywood's starlets wearing layered gold necklaces to red carpet events and the hottest parties.
Spring Shoes: Unfortunately we only have two feet!
It would be so simple if we could choose just one great pair of shoes for the Spring. Let's face it, it's impossible! Platform high heels, ballerina flats and pumps with animal prints are all Spring must haves!
Platforms heels in patent leather will be sexy and edgy, need we say more? Try Cole Haan's "Blanca Air Sandal" this pair is beautiful, versatile and an overall great pick. Platform heels are great for work or evening wear. Ballerina flats are another Spring favorite. They will be available in every shade and texture. Sam Edelman's "Carrie" in snake embossed leather is truly a perfect creation. "Faye" from Payless is also stylish and a steal. Both the "Carrie" or "Faye" ballerina flats can be paired with jeans, cargo pants and will dress up casual outfits.
Lastly, pumps with animal prints are great accent pieces and can be worn with a conservative dress or glam up a pair of jeans. Charles David's "Panini" or "Thrill" are both sophisticated yet naughty and will bring out the saucy minx in us all this Spring.
Ultimately, we don't suggest depleting your checking account in order to incorporate all of the aforementioned Spring 2007 must haves. Instead, we advise selecting the trends that best fit your personality. Consider the pieces you currently own and then determine which style will add that extra spice. Once you've done that, run out, shop till you drop and look fabulous this Spring!
