Our New York Fashion Week Spring 2010 Picks

By Erin Donnelly

sept13_fallfashiontrendsPhew! Single Minded Women is still trying to recover from our New York Fashion Week hangover. As usual, the Spring 2010 collections gave us plenty to drool over, and a few things to groan over too. Behold, four collections we think you’ll love.


Rebecca Taylor (shown, above): The always feminine Taylor balanced her sweet florals with edgier boyfriend jackets, metallics, sheer black camisoles layered underneath wispy sundresses, and polka dot prints. We’d wear just about everything that hit the runway. Take-Home Trend: Sheer Accents

Tracy Reese (shown, below): Reese has a great knack for knowing what real women want to wear, and we’re already carving out space in our closets for spring’s easy, colorful dresses and bold prints. From daytime frocks to vibrant weekend wear, these exuberant looks would be perfect for First Lady Michelle Obama. Take-Home Trend: Saturated Brights

Marc by Marc Jacobs: Making a sharp departure from the frilly coats and lingerie-inspired details of his main line, Marc Jacobs opted for a more youthful, energetic attitude with his lower-priced line. The ‘50s meets ‘80s collection featured bunny ear hair bows, summery wrap sandals, in-your-face floral-print sundresses, a sunglasses-required bright color palette, and geometric prints that recall African tribal garb. Older gals should make a beeline for the sandals and sundresses, while younger girls can have fun with those wild prints. Take-Home Trend: Bold Prints


Jill Stuart: The edgiest collection of the bunch, Jill Stuart’s Spring 2010 show was heavy on body-conscious cuts, along with sheer panelling, cutout details, and a black and cobalt color palette. Ideal for sexy young things with fierce attitudes and fiercer bodies. Take-Home Trend: Cutouts
