Spring Forward

So this Sunday was daylight savings time in Paris. No one told me and I got caught off guard, but oh well, there are worse things, at least I wasn’t an hour late for anything.

Not what I meant to post about though.

What daylight savings (and the dawning of April) means is that, theoretically at least, Spring is right around the corner.  Fashion magazines start talking about spring while it’s still cold out, but I can’t think about it until it’s actually warm enough to wear the clothes.  Plus I don’t usually get as excited about spring and summer because 1) there’s a lot more skin 2) it’s soooo hot that I want to wear clothes that are as light as possible, it’s too hard to focus on fashion and 3) the best summer strategy seems to be amazing dresses.  But anyway, here are some things I like for spring (Whenever it intends to start).

I’m a bad blogger, I’ve been saving images on my computer for so long that I don’t necessarily know where they all came from, I’ll mark the ones I do know…

Fun for Fall

Today Style.com put up their list of the must-haves for fall 2009.

Obviously lists like this are pretty subjective, or at least they should be in a world with free-will.  But regardless, I look to the runway for inspiration and their picks aren’t bad.

Their lis with my opinions (photos after the jump):

1. Something faux – I would definitely say that fur faux or real is very of-the-moment – it’s everywhere on the streets.

2. Over-the-knee boots – see here

3. Something sexy – I’m not sure this is a trend – didn’t Justin already bring sexy back?

4. Color – I do like color, but in general I would say I don’t see this one sticking in New York or Paris

5. Something draped – This one isn’t on my must-have list, but ok, draping is flattering.

6. Leather Jacket – I would call this a classic, so it’s always a must-have.  I saw a ton of great jackets this season, and I’m still in search of one for myself.

7. Strong-shouldered jacket – meh, I’m not a fan of the 80s.  If you’re purely following trends, then this a definite must-have, I’m a little more hesitant.

8. Something surreal – um really?

9. Decorated leg – again, not sure on this one.  I’d like to change it, I think trousers would be better for this list.  I’ll post on it later, perhaps.

10. Something studded – ALWAYS.  Studs make almost anything better.
