2010 Spring/Summer Fashion Trends

 Here are all the trends you need to know about for spring/summer 2010:

 

 BOY SHORTS

If ever there was a time to hit the gym, it’s this Spring. Hemlines have crept up to shorter than short. Hot pants, boy shorts, and tap pants are all variations on this shorter-than-short style.

KNEE HIGH AND OVER- THE- KNEE SOCKS

Knee high socks – as well as over-the-knee and thigh high socks – are back as a trend, and the options on how to wear them are many. From the sporty to the sparkly, to layerings of socks over tights, a great pair of socks can add volumes to an outfit.

FUTURE WARRIOR

The military and tribal trends are becoming a fierce fashion trend. Ancient civilisations come to life in leather tunics, metal plating, and war paint. Unequivocally fearless and with room for endless creativity, the main criteria for the modern warrior is confidence.

HIGH DRESS SPLITS

How to pull off the ultimate in sexy without reaching for the micro-mini? Add a long dress with a high split to your Spring wardrobe. From Versace’s knock-out gowns to Lanvin’s elegantly draping numbers, we look at numerous ways to rock a high dress split.

JUMPSUITS

Every so often, one-piece styles of clothing have a revival. What started with bodysuits and leotards is now becoming a fully-fledged trend towards jumpsuits, playsuits, and rompers. As a unique style for Spring 2010, they won’t be for everyone, but they will offer more options than you’d think.

PATTERNED AND PRINTED PANTS

No longer must we stick to boring block colours on our lower half, for all varieties of printed pants have made their way onto the Spring runways. Whether floral, striped, abstract, bold or subdued… patterns on pants are giving us new bold wardrobe options for the warmer months.

SHEER AND SEE-THROUGH FABRICS

In Spring and Summer fashion tends to get a little more revealing.  2009/2010’s sheer pieces are a mixture of the soft and feminine, to the opposite extremes of the hardcore sex-kitten.

BOYFRIEND BLAZERS

Continuing to be a wardrobe staple for Spring/Summer 2010, the “boyfriend” blazer is a simple way to look chic whether on a fresh Spring day or mild a Summer’s night. A slightly oversized jacket or blazer, sleeves rolled up, is the pinnacle of relaxed cool.

But wait! Before hitting the stores, remember: trends come and go, but style remains. When tempted to embrace a trend, first ask yourself if it’s consistent with your body type, personal style, age and of course, the rest of your wardrobe.
