Girlie Spring 09

Black is still in until the warmer months make an entrance, so don't feel like you have to suddenly look like a bright marsmallow to kick off the new season. Bring colour in by combining bright chiffon or silk scarves with grey sweaters or a black shirt with a simple black cardigan.

Prints - Leopard is still here, and so are flower patterns. However there will be more abstract patterns (see above, from Topshop) and geometric colourful prints.

Shoes - ballet pumps are being renovated with different textures such as velvety fabrics, in soft blues and pinks.

Make Up - colours are bright and luminous. Try yellows, bright blues in eyes, and keep lips natural or slighlty pink and glossy.
