Spring fashion for 2008

Apr '08
Springtime: vibrant-colored flowers are in bloom, birds are singing, the sun is brightly shining, and the mood is bright. When spring makes way, it rubs off a recognizable happiness and spirit of renewal. Keith Fulsher, senior vice president and chief merchandising officer for dressbarn, says that same spirit is evident in women's fashion styles for the spring season this year.

"Spring fashion for 2008 is all about being unrestrained, having fun and just feeling happy," Fulsher said. "There are a myriad of vibrant, go-lucky styles hitting the retail racks, and they are gaining popularity. Women will not only enjoy the shopping experience with fashion diversity blooming this spring, they will also delight in wearing outfits that will add on to their already happy aura."

Fulsher lists the following styles that will break-through this spring season:

1. Print Power – Put a little "umph" in your wardrobe by looking for styles patterned with big flowers, geometrics, pop art, dots and borders.

2. Citrus – Oranges, limes and lemons are tart, but they are also sweet, bright and cheerful – taking center-stage in trendy colors for fashion this season.

3. Trapeze – This wonderfully fluid silhouette accents the shoulders and flatters most figures in a flowing and forgiving way.

4. Baby doll – This style accentuates one of the narrower parts of a woman's body, right below the bust, attractively flattering the figure.

5. Sundresses – Just right paired with flat sandals or espadrilles for a casual day and picture perfect for a fun-filled party when paired with strappy heels.

6. Shine – Charmeuse is slinky, smooth and sensual, especially in blouses and dresses.

7. Citi Shorts – This length, both in casual and career, is very flattering; and, is perfect paired with a heel for a sophisticated work look or a flat sandal for casual.

8. The New Jacket – Take your pick: double-breasted, ¾ sleeves, swings, boleros and trapeze shapes, vibrant colors and bold prints bring added excitement.
