Fashion Forward: Spring Preview
Spring brings a fresh start, especially in the world of fashion. As Seven's Diana Diaz shows us in tonight's Fashion Forward -- from preppy to poppies -- spring is definitely in bloom on the New York runways.
WSVN -- Spring is in!
On the fashion runways the look is flirty, flowy and totally feminine.
The season's silhouette played out at Nicole Miller -- big and blousy on top, tight on the bottom.
Nicole Miller: "It's flattering for a lot of different types. It looks very good belted."
But the dress seems to be the season's staple. Oscar de la Renta showed sun dresses in big, bold poppy prints -- wallflowers need not apply.
At Michael Kors, stretch is best. Stick to jersey and knitwear for easy care and style.
Michael Kors: "You could be going to the Academy Awards and have your dress rolled up in a duffel bag in the back of the car and just kind of slide it on and go."
For the long and the short of it, shorts are back in fashion -- paired with blouses and jackets to give them a more serious stature.
If covering up is more your style, roomy trenches and portrait jackets add instant polish.
DKNY is showing off a punchy palette of pinks, plums and shades of yellow.
Donna Karen: "DKNY really is the profile of the street and people of New York."
Metallics still shine in everything from tanks to tees to evening dresses.
Anchors away -- buttons and braiding give way to the nautical look.
The prince of prep -- Ralph Lauren -- featured a combo of the polo match, worthy casual wear and elegant evening dresses.
It was more dresses at April May -- Short, sashed waists, and even pockets for your blackberry.
And the skinny on pants? Still slim, grabbing the ankle or knee.
Diana Diaz: "And a final fashion footnote: Embroidery or eyelit on anything is in."
Next week, we'll take a closer look at the hottest spring dresses and where you can find them right here in South Florida.
