From Punky to Pretty.


Well Marc Jacobs, you brought back the crass girl with punky 80's trends, but I'm predicting with the popularity and trickle-down effect of the trend a new girl is on the rise. The New York Times talks about the sexiness and cool of the model who is just too hot to handle and is clearly not the soft, feminine creature that women are known to be.

Well here's a challenge for you. Try something pretty (gasp). Why you ask? Well feminine doesn't necessarily mean powder pink, grandma florals and  and long hem-lines. Oh no sugar! Feminine whites, laces and bows (as seen in Chanel's show above) may be a little excessive for the not-so girly girl. But how about cool pastels with  interesting, gauzy and feminine silhouettes like Alternative Apparel's cowl neck shirt?

Be on the lookout for prints this season in fun shapes, like the flirty printed-mini dress from Karen Walker's runway show. With spring around the corner, get ready to get pretty again! I can sleep peacefully again knowing that I don't always have to dress like a biker chick...ahh :D
