spring 2010 trend predictions, pt. 1

well life just keeps coming, keeping me mucho busy... but fear not, i haven't forgotten about you, dear readers! as promised, i am here to regale you with my trend predictions for spring 2010. in just two words here they are: color & sparkle.

let's focus on color today. traditionally spring sees a tide of baby soft shades and easter egg pastels, but not this year! and can i just tell you how happy i am for that??! happy like, whoa! never having been a fan of pastels, i predict that this year we'll see oodles of saturated berry pinks & reds, near neon blues & greens and sunny yellows. but it doesn't stop there, i've seen many a jewel tone as well! usually reserved for fall, i gladly welcome a little drama from concurrently bright and rich jewel tones. and dare i say, i want to mix them with the aforementioned near-neons!

color ho!

lots of color and a pop of print to be found at offers a gorgeous grassy green dress that would look great with either cardigan pictured below

sunny yellow flats are at the top of my must-have list right now - is big on the jewel tone berry, seen here and below has got a lot of jewel tone offerings, including this lovely rich citrine coat

these navy jewel tights will bring some gravity to an outfit of near-neons!
