The stars are aligning, and at last, Spring is almost here! A few months ago, our cosmopolitan cosmologist, Vasil, scrutinized the looks of New York Fashion Week, consulted his crystal ball, and predicted the trends that would rule Spring 2009. However, if you’re one of the people who plan their outfit the morning of, we’re sure that two months ago, you were on the lookout for a warm coat and cozy scarf (unless you’re one of the lucky people who doesn’t have to worry about winter!). No matter your astrological sign, the outlook is bright for Spring 2009! As always, ModCloth offers hundreds of items that will help you stay unique and on trend this season!

Did you know that the phrase “In Like a Lion, out like a Lamb’ got its imagery from the constellations, Leo the Lion and Aries the Ram or Lamb? It refers to the position of these constellations in the sky at the beginning and end of the month, which make it seem like Leo is ascending in the beginning of March and Aries is retreating at the end of the month. Check out this cute cartoon for a fun take on the saying’s origin.
A Grand Design
For Spring 2009, our buyers, Sari, Susan, and Lindsay, searched far and wide to bring you some of the most unique prints. From exotic florals, to stripes and tartan, to bright geometric prints, you can be playful and stylish in your universe. Some of our favorites include the Art All Night Top, Folk Festival Dress, and Neo-Hippie Dress.
Take your own planet as inspiration in terms of your color choices this season. Earthy and muted tones are in, primarily beiges and nudes, paired with bold color accents, particularly primary colors. Don’t forget to look to the sea, as well, and incorporate a palette of white, icy lavender, and polar blues into your wardrobe rotation, like the Buenos Aires Dress.
It’s all about emphasizing your silhouette this season, which means unique cuts are playing a major role in style. Square cuts, ruffles, tailored blazers, and high-waisted pants, as well as geometric and 3D Shapes, all made a prominent appearance in the lines of many top designers.
Astral Belts and Other Accessories
Even with oversized or loose-fitting dresses or tops, enhancing your silhouette is still key this season, and what better way to do so than with a stylish belt, like the Mixed Berry Belt. Another great accessory for spring is long and large jewelry, like the Interior Design Necklace, which works as a great accent to any outfit. Hair accessories continue to rock this season too, like the ShakeYour Hair Feather Barrette.
And finally, no matter how heavenly our ensembles, we can count on shoes to always keep us grounded. Whether its high heels or sandals, Spring enables you to choose any style and look chic. Glitter, sparkles, and metallic accents, along with straps and laces seem to define the fashion trends for the next couple of months. Check out the El Dorado Sandals and the Boudoir Boots!
