It’s a season of possibilities with hair-raising colors, see-through tops and more. By KIRSTEN FLEMING
As the spring blossoms emerge, so does a new crop of style trends. Taking cues from the off-the-runway looks at New York and Paris fashion weeks, it’s obvious this season’s looks aren’t for wallflowers. Silhouettes are even bolder; prints are mixed, shaken and stirred together — and beauty is bursting with intrepid hues. We tried some of our favorites around town.
After appearing on the runways of Jason Wu and DVF, the mullet skirt was ubiquitous at New York Fashion Week. Short in the front and long in the back, the cascading hemline is high on this season’s list of must-haves. I’m only 5 feet tall, so I chose a black one with a gradual dip, and paired it with platforms for a boost. It's a long way from that wedding dress in Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain” video.
