In this economy, no one can afford to drop thousands on a fresh wardrobe -- and why should you? We spoke with Ken Downing, the fashion director for Neiman Marcus, to narrow down spring 2010’s 7 must-have trends.
The "safari" look often comes up in resort collections, and this spring, it's a big trend, too. "Fashion loves to sojourn, but this season they really landed on the Ivory Coast," Downing says. "So we're seeing a lot of really gorgeous saturated prints and patterns, a lot of geometrics that take on a lot of African spirit, not only just in ready to wear, but also in shoes and handbags and the way that so many things were accessorized on the runway."
