Black has long reigned as queen of the runway, but white is set to topple the dark dynasty, at least for this season. Diaphanous white dresses are set to be the star of the show this year. The trend may be linked to more optimistic attitudes about the economy or a desire for a fresh start. Whatever the psychological reasons behind this season's white-out, you should be ready for it with plenty of stain sticks and bleach. Anyone with young children should double their supply of cleaning products.

70's Glamour

Last year was all about 80's retro, and this spring we're going back an extra decade for inspiration. Most of us cringe when the words "70's Fashions" are uttered. We've all either seen or starred in the awkward prom photos from that psychedelic, bell-bottomed era. But have no fear, spring clothing trends are much more subtle. The evening jumpsuit is back, in a glamorous, updated form. The flowing lines and easy fit will be a breath of fresh air for anyone eagerly awaiting the death of the skinny jean. If a whole 70's outfit is too much for you, go for one small piece. Big chunky sunglasses are a great addition to just about any wardrobe. They make your features appear smaller and more delicate, and they're perfect for hiding the tired puffy eyes you acquired partying late into the warm spring nights.

Crazy Prints

The spring runways came alive with wild combinations of prints and colors. We're talking leopard mixed with geometric with a touch of paisley thrown in for good measure. Few real-life women would be caught dead in a dress or jacket in these prints, but that doesn't mean the whole trend has to be jettisoned. Have fun this season by choosing a piece or two that are slightly more adventurous than your usual picks. A neutral, monochromatic outfit can be brought to life with a beautifully busy bag or freaky-patterned footwear.
