Teen Fashion Trends for Spring

Teen Fashion Trends for Spring

The New Year is here and with it, the "new look" in teen fashion. This Spring and Summers fashion trends are big, bold, loud and proud. The styles are a bit of a throwback to the 1980s, leaving behind everything bad and bringing back only the good. From bold, beautiful plaids in purples and browns, to spangly danglies jewelry, to chunky footwear, teen fashions for Spring 2009 have a lot to say.

Colors - The colors for Spring 2009 teen fashions are vibrant on the one hand, and classic on the other. Turquoise is the latest shade of blue to hit the runways, showing up in everything from prom gowns to tankinis, hats to scarves. Bright fuschia is the years hottest pink. Combine turquoise and fuschia and youve got an eye-popping, traffic stopping outfit that could come straight off the runway. On the more laid back fashion scene, navy is turquoises hot blue cousin. Whether a jacket or a swim cover, if its navy blue its going to be in demand. Brown is another of the Springs main colors. From handbags to formals, brown continues to be the "new" black for fashion. Coming in the middle of the two color extremes is purple. From deep, royal purples fit for princesses the world over, to more subtle shades of violet, purple stands in the gap, offering you choices that could be either vibrant and bright or laid back and classic.

Prints - From bold and big, prints are a big item in this Springs fashions. Youll be seeing paisleys on everything - tops, skirts, dresses, bed linens, purses, even sunglasses with paisley swoops on the ear pieces. And the bigger the paisley the better, it would seem. Stripes are on the move again, as well. And not just any stripe - big, bold, wide stripes in big, bold colors. Brown and turquoise dtripes can be seen racing on t-shirts. Big stripes of bold purples and fuschias are marching their way across skirts, skorts and shorts for Spring and Summer. Not so big, but no less bold, polka dots of every hue can be found on items as varied as dresses fit for Sunday dinner at Grandmas to socks so cool your feet will never be the same. Oh, and for those of you who prefer your dots big, a few designers have taken the plunge to create dresses and longer skirts youll be pleased to call your own. Plaids are making a noise, too. Everything from this Summers tube tops to next Winters wool coat can be had in plaid. Like their other cousins in the print scene, the bigger the better, with larger checks winning over smaller ones.

Styles - This Spring and Summers fashions are like watching Miami Vice reruns or Madonnas breakthrough videos. It would appear that everything old has come new again. The skinnier the jeans, the better, at least for this years fashion. (Pegged jeans are even making a come-back, for those who dont care for the stick-legged look.) Dresses and skirts are sporting "bubble hems" - wide bands of elastic that hug the thighs allowing for the rest of the skirt to drape above. Ruffles and criss-cross draping on blouses and dress bodices would make any Material Girl feel right at home. (Check your moms closet - chances are shes still got one or two of her ruffled blouses hanging around.) Paired with todays colors of turquoise and fuschia, the newest in teen fashion may have your mom wondering if you time-traveled back to her days in high school, minus the big hair and shoulder pads, of course.

Jewelry - No outfit is complete without that "perfect touch" and bling is definitely the thing among teen fashion. As with the bolder colors and prints, teen jewelry has gone big, bold and beautiful, too. Cuff bracelets are in, in a big way. Big, plain cuffs are fine, but sparkly, studded cuffs are better. Necklaces have also gone bold, with large pendants and beads. If you dont like the big look, go for layers - many of the new styles are made of several pieces put together. Designers create the same effect with smaller chains and strands, layered over top each other. Eco-friendliness and eco-awareness have their place in teen fashion, too. This years jewelry features bone, wood and fresh water pearl, along with natural stone pieces, such as jade, turquoise and onyx. Earrings and rings are all about charming - charming charms, that is. And they need to make a statement, as in having something to say. The most popular styles of charms are "emo" or expression charms, touting the wearer as "moody" or "peacfeful." The spangle has to dangle, ya know?

Footwear - Clunky is funky. While youll still find an occasional pair of flip-flops in a designers line, clunky and chunky heels are stomping their way to forefront of teen fashion this Spring. Boots with 2 inch heels, wedge sandals, even clogs are getting the "thick" treatment. Strappy seems to be snappy for dress shoes. From Mary Janes in sparkling silver to gladiator sandals in bronze, straps are showing up everywhere, too.

With its bold, bright colors and its "bigger is better" attitude about everything, teen fashion seems to be all about making a statement this year. Not only will your fashion choices have something to say about who you are and what youre like, your clothing and accessories will have things to say about themselves, too.
