Norwalk, Conn. (PRWEB) January 16, 2007
As the new season approaches and temperatures stay above normal during winter, it's easier for consumers to start thinking about spring fashion, reports AP9 Essentials, a leading discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC.
There's good news for those who want to look in style but also save money. The adaptable jersey and thin knits that have been in vogue during the fall and winter can be used again during spring of 2007. And to add to those savings, members of AP9 Essentials can purchase new items, fresh off the runways, by using their money-saving benefits at major retailers all over the country.
Two main trends govern the world of fashion for the upcoming season: one has a futuristic edge, with lots of metallic elements and sleek forms. The second one has a sweet touch, more feminine and soft. AP9 Essentials gives you some fashion highlights for spring '07:
--Layering separates. The layered look allows you to combine both big trends easily. You can wear sleek, male-shaped pants with a floral silk shirt and a cropped jacket (yes, this style still rocks, no matter the season).
--Rainbow-like hues. Color and more color is what designers added to their '07 collections. The idea is to make a statement with accessories full of color, or to stand out with one piece in a vibrant hue while the rest of the outfit is subtler.
--All about the details. Dig up your trench coats or make sure to get a nice one, with delicate touches or a splash of color. Trenches are back this year, and they can be the magic touch to make a simple jean and t-shirt ensemble a look that catches everyone's attention.
--Nothing more feminine. The dress is a key piece for '07. It's back for winter with tights and long coats, and it's a major element of next spring's look. Pick your favorites among floral styles, long and simple, short and cute, multicolor or solid. Dresses are appropriate for day and night, as well as for the office or a more casual place. It all depends on the fabric and the style.
--Hemlines hiking up. Teenagers and twenty-something women will be happy to hear that mini- and micro-skirts are no longer a total no-no. Short skirts are part of the spring wardrobe, and the rule of thumb to wear them is: the younger the girl, the higher the hem.
--Pants lovers. Pants are not forgotten this spring. The skinny pants are not going anywhere, although the wide-leg jeans and pants are also well received. The suit pants are a must-have, as are jackets and pieces with a slight masculine style.
Take these guidelines, and mix them up according to your personal style. The rule for this year is to break the rules, make your own combinations, and shop around for timeless pieces, reports AP9 Essentials.
