Spring 2012 Trends: From the Runway to Your Way post image

Ah, the ever so fabulous fashion show.  The theatrics of them are enough to draw you in, but then add the clothes and accessories and what’s not to love?!  Twice a year they come around in the form of Fashion Week and women fawn over them like men do March Madness games.  But each Fashion Week brings the same conundrum for many of us – we covet the designs, love the trends, but have no idea how in the world to translate these looks to our everyday lives (and not have others look at us like we walked off the set of Alice & Wonderland).

Spring is officially here, so it’s time to give some of those trends you’ve been coveting a try!  Here are my versions of a few of Spring’s hottest runway trends that you can wear everyday. [Click here to keep reading…]

Crop Tops: Love Or Loathe?


The crop-top seemed destined to be filed under the “what was I thinking” category along with many other other impossible to understand or explain styles of the 90’s. However, much to the chagrin or many, crop tops made a valiant return for Spring 2010 as seen on the influential runways of labels such as Twenty8Twelve, Alexander Wang, Erin Wasson x RVCA, Thakoon, and more.

And this trend got even stronger for Fall 2010, appearing on the runways of fashion heavyweights such as Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, and Missoni. So has the crop-top been given an unjustly harsh rep? Is there something fabulous about it that we’ve all been missing? On the one hand, this trend will definitely motivate you to stay in shape. On the other, would anyone, save for the cast of the Jersey Shore, really go out in public with your midriff showing?
