#4 Color Trends From The Street

When walking the streets of manhattan today, the most common color I saw was hunter green/military colors. Coats were the bulk of the items I saw, but scarves and nail polish colors were prominent as well. A subtle yet fantastic color to transition any fashionista from winter to spring.

#3 Fashion Trend From NY Street

With Fashion Week happening around the corner from my apartment, I was easily able to spot some fantastic trends. We had one day of beautiful 6o degree weather which put everyone in the 'Springy' mood. Dresses of all sorts were paired with booties and unique, lightweight jackets were seen all over the streets. Fashion Week is known to bring the most luxurious people and fashion looks together. Cheers to fabulous style!

#2- Key Item for Spring 2012

In the world of menswear, accessories are making a big plash. Casual youth and 1970's are recurring themes. Key items such as fedoras, scarves, jewelry and sunglasses will be seen on the runways.

The traditional fedora is key for 70's look- is looks is relaxed with a narrower, pushed-back brim and crumpled crown.

Soft accessories play a vital role in this season as well - from striped football scarves to the collegiate ties. Knitted beanies are prominent here too , and for next winter they arrive either shrunken or elongated, in a play on proportion.

A major trend that emerged is chains and trinket pendants with strong commercial viability.

Circular and squared eye wear will be big for 2012. While the season is perhaps tight on new shape directions, two strong material/colour directions emerge - classic tortoiseshell and an emphasis on creamy neutrals.
