I don’t know what are. I think people make them up, and then they say, ‘Oh yeah, yellow’s really in this season.’ Sometimes there are obvious trends, but there aren’t any at the moment I can think of. Are there? It’s bullshit. Trends are a lie magazines make up so you feel like you have to buy something.

Time to get grounded. It’s totally debatable if it will be a craze, but I saw this coming. In a world where footwear has been revolutionized by shoes like the Vibram Fivefingers and women are paying $400 a week for ready-made green juice cleanses, fashion is catering to a growing market of luxury customers that are craving more holistic, orthotic direction. The typically garish sandal by Teva, has been reinterpreted by several designers as perfectly stylish footwear.

Black Party, Spring 2010

Black Party is this weekend, but who does that anymore? According to fashion designers, a black party is happening on the runways. Doom and gloom within the global economy influenced this trend and it’s very evident in many collections this season. It’s pretty odd because color is strongly associated with spring. But, get used to it because, judging from the state of the current economy, black may be here for a while.

Welcome To The Gun Show!, Spring 2010

‘Bing, bang, boom!’  is the sound coming from the runways for spring 2010, because designers are ready to show off those arms. Throw on a tank top and make sure your layered shirt, sweater or jacket is sleeveless. This trend is unique because designers found creative ways to incorporate full looks into their collections without a need for sleeves.

Throw on a button-down shirt, layered with a sweater vest and jacket and – boom! – you have a full look…without sleeves! I’ve never had a problem with a good set of guns, so men everywhere need to be ready to aim and fire!

Leg Room, Spring 2010

'Show me some leg!” should be the official statement from designers this season. It's all about exposing this lengthy part of a man's body and celebrating all of its goodness. I wrote a post about this trend a few days ago, but I’m still fascinated by the variety of short-shorts available in stores right now. Your legs better look great because it’s all about that southern exposure.
