Past Issues:

What Women Want

Watch out for the following fashion trends this spring:

  • Lots of yellow
  • Cropped jackets
  • Dresses in all colours plus lots of black and white
  • Dress shorts (just above the knee) worn with or without matching jackets
  • Oversized sunglasses
  • Tribal prints
  • Peep toe shoes

We asked Image Consultant Anne Sowden to update us on this season’s “look”:

Patterns. This season anything goes from graphic prints and patchwork to florals and stripes.  The choice is yours.  If you’re not sure about patterns, start with something simple like a top or scarf—yes, scarves are back again. Or, think about adding a patchwork bag or flowered clutch.  Any of these items will update your look without being a major investment. Although the trend is to mix and match patterns, I think that is really only for fashion shoots.  Real women need to keep it simple and stylish.
