2009 in the Pink
Don’t know about you, but after one too many Boxing Day sales I’m actually all winter-shopped out. I shopped smart though – and kept some spring 2009 trends in mind so some of my sale purchases might carry over.
The “it” color for spring will be HOT pink. While cobalt blue was the ‘it’ color of 2008, magenta is shaping up to be the must-have shade of ‘09. Other color trends are dusty rose (which looks bad on this gal), lilac, slate grey (blue/grey), lime and navy.
Other spring trends to keep in mind while shopping the sales…
- Sophisticated Trench
- Color Block Prints
- Carry overs from last season: Oversize necklines, Zipper accents, Big bangles
- Butterflies, frills and ruffles (aka girly)
- Gold jewels and Gold hues
- 80’s are still lingering, but think more late 80’s and shoulder pads, big hair, and huge earrings are optional.
