Is Everything In?

I still run the heater at night, and I wear my knee high frye boots nearly every day. Now that december is in the past I feel over joyed knowing I am a step closer to silk, chiffon, linen in all the beautiful shades and silhouettes that spring has to offer.

Now that we are embarking on a new season, there are plenty of trends to acclimate to. Trends are ever changing - they have to really. If they stayed the same, there wouldn't be anything for us to buy when new seasons rolled in. Designers hold on to some trends because they are just too fabulous to let go of, but also don't hesitate to kick out other trends just as we are getting used to them. In some cases, the quick turnover methodology works -- I just couldn't get behind the "cage boot". As I search for looks I love and want to incorporate into my wardrobe, I find myself confused. Is everything in?

The more I read and research it seems like everything is in for Spring? Let's see: floral is in, blush tones are in, sherbert tones are in, mix prints are in, denim is in (was it ever out) and so are lace, ruffles, pleating and even military motifs. The most "in" thing is mixing all these styles. For example, don't be afraid to pair your army jacket with a ruffled blouse. Or try a chambray shirt with a glittery gold skirt. Mixing prints, fabrics and price points are right on with the season's trends. Everyone from Rachel Roy to BCBG is doing a "mixed media" dresses that combines different prints and fabrics. Sounds like a fashion nightmare but really it's divine.

There are a lot of choices this spring -- something for everyone!
