Fashion Rx: Your weekly dose of what to wear!

I bet you are excited to go shopping with all of these new Spring trends on the rise.  Let me caution you slightly, what you see the on runway is so much more carefully conceptualized than what you may find in stores, so while you may be ready to take the plunge into new trends it may be better to just get your feet wet.  Case in point...the athletic trend, I'm pretty sure that neoprene is not office appropriate, so how can you try your hand at this fit fashion wear?

The Cure: Simply Stated Sport

Many fashion editors are advising a "less is more" mantra when it comes to such trends like athletic wear. You do not want to look like you are coming from the gym, you want to embrace the street chic fashionista that you are so choose just one piece to help illustrate this look.  Personally, I would start with a great pair of dark skinny jeans, a failsafe basic and then venture to the world of runway with a mesh top.  Notice this top is not neon (another tip, don't try to wear all new trends at once).  The mesh provides an athletic feel, but the neckline and fitted silhouette provide subtle sophistication.  Simple, but it makes a statement. In keeping with generally neutral shades, do the same with your shoe, but amp up style.  If you want to test the waters a little more, add one bold accessory to complete the look.
