One of the overall themes that emerged from the Spring 2009 Runway is that skin is in. For better or worse, über short lengths and skin-exposing cutouts made street wear look more like swimwear. Uncomfortably confronted with TMI we got to work interpreting the trend PDQ to make it more wearable:
· Wear leggings or tights, even with shorts (a trend from the street)
· Look for long blazers that cover your bum, but opt for slim-fitting cuts to keep it sleek
· An oversized vest is a good way to cover up and add layers of personal style; think asymmetrical hems, collars, or embellishments that say “you”
· Still not convinced? Ditch it – not all trends are workable; choose what’s right for you.
