BARE Magazine is Berkeley’s first student-run fashion and style magazine. Our friends here at ShoeTube have asked us to share some insight on Berkeley trends. Style at UC Berkeley has always been about individuals and their stories! In fact, students on the Berkeley campus already seem to be flaunting summer styles.
Summer ’09 is the time to get creative and bring out all the accessories–your statement necklaces, sunglasses, gladiators and of course bags, our arm candies! Some notable trends include:
Lots of Prints, Florals, and Vibrant Colors

Showing up on the runways in NY to Paris are exotic and sweet floral prints as well as tribal patterns and prints. We’ll be seeing a lot more color on campus. For example, have fun with nail polish and experiment with brighter colors like yellows, pinks and blues.
There will also be a lot of nude. And with the switch in season, we’ll be enjoying lighter, sheer and more transparent fabrics, a great choice for the warmer weather.

These are eight pieces from the Lanvin show that I favor and feel are presentational of current trends. I love how all the silhouettes are feminine, how the fabrics freely drape over the body, making the clothes look so comfortable, light and cute! The colors, prints and necklaces are all refreshing.
