The global fashion industry declares what
is in vogue seasons before garments are even produced. Calling to closets
everywhere, trendsetters brush up on bright ideas and big ‘no-no's' through
the media before they even hit the shopping streets.
At Spring 2004 Fashion Week, held this past September in New York City
, clothing concepts premiered on the runways as fashionistas took note
for what's next. Incorporate these basics into your spring 2004 wardrobe
and bloom like the tulips this year.
preppy polo tops are a springtime staple, as well as Eighties-esque
neon hues as seen at legendary club kid Richie Rich's Heatherette collection.
Colors are definitely the new black!
How to wear
- Don an offbeat pastel polo, like
lime green, with basic blue jeans
- Pick up a neon-hued tee and layer over
a long-sleeved black shirt for contrast
- Hot pink tights spice up a black
mini-dress for a neo-mod look
||Bright idea: With colors, hold
the garment up to your face to see if your skin compliments the tone.
Fair-skinned people are often complimented by pale pink to bring
out rose tones, while baby blue brightens dark or olive skin. Medium-tones
are versatile in greens and oranges.
