Spring 2010 Fashion Predictions

Whats on the radar for Spring 2010? PEEK-A-BOO: Exposed flesh was in no short supply on the runways this Spring. Designers chose to use cut-outs, slits, mesh, lace, and more to give a sexy little peek at the skin beneath their ornate pieces. METALLICS: Recession? What recession? It was disco fever across many of the spring runways, with designers banking on glitz, sparkle, and shimmer to distract consumers' attention away from retail's continuing woes. FEATHERS: Designers took a renewed interest in feathers for spring -- of all colors and textures. The frothy look adds a playful levity to the runways, not unlike taking part in a fantastic carnival.

Trussardi 1911 bag SCHOOL SPIRIT: Back-to-school season may be September, but the spring collections were packed with knee socks, preppy stripes, gym clothes, and academic blazers. Think Gossip Girl meets J Crew. LEISURE SUITS: Fall 2009 brought the "power suit" back to the foreground of fashion, but Spring 2010 heralds the return of leisure dressing -- attire fit for jet-setters and put-together cool kids.
