Have you been shopping lately and noticed that stores are selling a lot of shorts, tanks and mini skirts? It all seems completely inappropriate due to the fact that we are in the dead of winter. However, we in fashion, call it "weather optimism" a.k.a "Resort" season. Originally, this season was created to give those who were wealthy and had the ability to get out of the cold and vacation somewhere hot, something new to wear. Nowadays "resort" can be considered more of a "pre-spring" season because we are just coming out of the recession so even the rich might being staying at home this winter . Point is- aren't you bored of buying turtlenecks and long johns anyway? Like it or not, you'll be seeing lots of new spring-like clothing in stores now so gear up and pray for warm weather!
Unfortunately for those who are preggers, some of the hot trends that we are seeing for spring are not the most wearable- ie. high-waisted pants and pantsuits. Fret not though because there are some great trends that you will be able to wear and look fab in. Here are some wearable trends that will look great on your curvy bod:
* 70's revival. For those of you who were not alive at the time of the "hippies" but want to embrace the flower child within, you are in luck! Chanel's resort season showed flowy caftans and crocheted dresses that will make you feel free and breezy. Of course, Chanel might not be within your budget but be on the look out for similar looks to be on trend.
*Bright colors in sorbet tones! Feeling hungry? Wear something deliciously bright this upcoming season. Runway collections were showcasing sorbet pinks and vibrant reds as the "pop colors" for their color palettes and we think that they look yummy! These bold colors will look great on the pregnant body so don't be afraid to wear a bright hue.
* Romantic florals. Feminine and sweet, many of the high-end designers incorporated botanical elements into their collections. Whether printed or embroidered, donned with lace or paired with something sheer, adding florals to your wardrobe will help you look effortlessly chic this upcoming spring season.
* Want to laugh? The "belt purse" otherwise known as the "fanny pack" is making a comeback in the accessory world. Made from luxurious materials and looking more like a "belt with a small purse" than what you would think of when you think of fanny pack, this trend will leave your hands free to hold your baby or give your shoulder a break. Yea...we're not so sure about this trend but don't be surprised if we cave- our shoulders do at times feel like they are falling off!
Have a fabulously stylish day!
