As you can see from reading Pamela, Debbi, and Tara's posts, New York Fashion Week has once again been a whirl-wind of exciting events and fashion shows. The spring '10 runways were full of an optimism that designers expressed through beautiful colors, artistic prints, and wearable items--some new and some that we already love. For us, now the editing process to determine the best of the best to share with you at Nordstrom begins.
Here's a recap of our runway favorites:
Blue: aquatic shades that range from pale sky to teal
Abstract Prints: the newest print direction has an artistic feel
Floral Prints: florals continue, this time in blurred, colorful combinations
Sequins: for jackets, tops, and dresses--an instant update for day or night
One-Shoulder Tops and Dresses: for looks with a subtle '80s vibe
Something Short: shorts were the number-one runway choice, followed by above-the-knee printed skirts and dresses
Dresses: T-shirt dresses and easy shifts
Boy-Cut Blazers: the perfect piece to wear with short skirts, dresses or even shorts
Weightless Cardigans: longer in length to wear edge-to-edge with shorts, dresses or skirts
Harem Pants: the "It" pant for spring in silk, jersey or fleece
Bib Necklaces: adorns basics like white shirts and tees
Caged Sandals: the new version of the high-heeled gladiator
Here are some of the key looks from the week:
