Department Stores Launch Spring Fashion Collections

Macy’s has announced the launch of six new fashion collections for spring, some by a few well-known names.

But the one that stands out for me most is Kouture by Kimora.

In stores March 2010, the line, mainly for juniors, smacks of the model-mom-mogul’s fabulosity. In fact, Macy’s says it will feature trendy body-loving looks with eye-catching embellishments, vibrant colors and energetic prints.

If you’re a budget fashionista, you’ll love that prices range from $24 to $40.

Look for retro jackets, off-shoulder blouses, fun rompers and flirty dresses as part of Kouture by Kimora, which will also release a Fall 2010 collection.

In other department store fashion news, last night JCPenney hosted their Discover Spring Style event at Lincoln Center in NYC.

Hello, High Tops!

LADY FOOT LOCKER HIGH TOP SNEAKER

It’s no secret that the eighties are back.

The crazy fashion decade has taken over runways and crept into stores’ window displays.

Now we’re learning that footwear isn’t exempt either.

Today Lady Foot Locker unveiled their newest inventory, which definitely brings back memories of neon colors, printed tights and liquid leggings.

Can’t remember how you pulled it off in the eighties?

Here are a few quick tips on how to put the retro look together this spring.

Pop of Color

This spring, even the die-hard goth girl will find it hard to resist a little pop of color in her wardrobe. Take a cue from your Reebok Top Downs and pull some of those hues up into your look.

Use colorful scarves to highlight your pretty prints, and brighten your blacks with a neon tank. Mixing electric colors with black make for a perfect 80’s retro feel.

Like a Boy

It’s the tomboys’ turn to shine. The runways may have reignited that classic trend, but Converse Chuck Taylors help you bring it home. Pair your Chucks with all your menswear looks for spring, be it straight leg pants, short skirts and even wide leg pants. And be sure to borrow his skinny tie or straw fedora, as a girl does need to accessorize.

Black and White… and All Over

It never goes out of style. But the fun thing about black and white this season — you can mix it up with trendy colors and styles. Accentuate fun patterns with your Nike Blazer Hi’s and a contrasting striped shirt. Then break up the black and white with a neon tank.

And if you haven’t bought a pair of boyfriend jeans yet, it’s definitely time to add this great casual look to your closet.

Spring Trend Alert : The One-Shoulder Top, Harem Pant

one-shoulder-top

The soft, one-shoulder top does double duty with a pencil skirt for day or dark denim for night. The asymmetrical design is also found in dresses this season.

The harem pant emerges as a sophisticated new shape. It’s relaxed through the hip and thigh with tapering to the calf or ankle.

How exactly should you wear the harem pant?

In fluid silk or relaxed cotton, it looks best with a soft top worn close to the body and strong sandals that balance the silhouette.
