Extra, Extra

Last month, I received an email from a reader, asking me if I would submit a 2010 trend and style forecast, for our local paper, “The Record Review”.  Thrilled and somewhat miffed (as I thought I was writing to an audience of roughly three people), I immediately agreed!  Who was this savvy gumshoe anyway?
I soon learned that the reader was BonniBrodnick, formerly of the editorial staff of Glamour and House & Garden (amongst many other notable achievements).  Ms. Brodnick, writes the weekly newspaper column, “Talk of the Town” for the “Record Review”.

Today, my style forecast, appeared in her column:
Says, The Zhush, our town style obsessionista and observer, “Pantone, the world renowned authority on color, has declared turquoise this year’s color of the year.  Not only will this apply to interiors, but expect to see a lot more turquoise this spring and summer in clothes and accessories.
This is good news, as turquoise jewelry always looks so well suited to the casual-chic style of northern Westchester.  Whether you are dressed Ralph Lauren style – inspired by Native American jewelry – or in a fun new necklace fresh from Tory Burch’s spring accessories line, turquoise jewelry is consistently appealing.”  Peering into her crystal ball, in 2010 we can also expect the legging trend to continue, as Jeggings (jeans plus leggings) are here to stay.
“A chic alternative to the now-ubiquitous ‘Juicy’ suit, leggings and/or jeggings with at-the-knee-boots or over-the-knee-boots are a great way to look put together and still feel comfortable enough to run around Scotts Corners and then dine out at the Bedford Post.”

Thanks Bonni!
