Refresh your wardrobe with Plato's Closet this spring
Mar '09
The advent of the spring season also ushers in new fashions. For the fashion conscious, this means a time to scour their closets to determine what's in and what's not. And, for the cost conscious, this might mean scaling back on spending big bucks on clothing.

For both audiences, Plato's Closet is announcing practical warm weather must-haves for fashionistas.

"Spring is a wonderful time of year for teens and young adults to refresh their wardrobes and their style, but we know the economy is taking a toll on many people," said Renae Blonigen , director of Plato's Closet.

Blonigen says the hottest trends are as follows:

• Dresses – Hailed by every fashion magazine and stylist as a must-have for spring 2009, dresses are truly the multi-purpose piece. Key styles for this year include the A-line 60's shift, Grecian drapery, asymmetric one shoulder, loose flowing layered ruffle top dress, and the tried and true maxi.

• Exotic Tribal – Transcontinental tribal references will be seen in pattern, print and fabrics such as Navajo rust-red, turquoise and brown beadwork, and southwest coloration. African tribal influences such as the Ikat print with vibrant colors will be seen on shoes, purses and apparel.

• Watercolor Prints – From ditzy garden florals to bold graphic shapes to Ikebana, the Japanese art of floral design, watercolor prints featuring large brush strokes and soft edges will be hot. Color hues for these patterns can range from soft and muted to bright and bold.

• Geometry – Although teens are used to learning geometry in the classroom, this year's spring fashions incorporate shapes in different ways. Circles, origami folds and pintucking are expected to create drapes and layers that will result in new and exciting lines and silhouettes.

• Statement Jewelry – When cash is at a minimum, bold accessories can really make a statement. Huge necklaces, big costume jewelry, stacked chunky cuff bangles, tribal necklaces and large cocktail rings are all expected to grab attention and give life to any new outfit.
