Sunday Source: Trend Spotter - Shopper Sunday Source Trend Spotter
New Look for the New Year
HOLLY E. THOMAS and MICHELLE THOMAS  |  DECEMBER 21, 2008
Some events call for retrospection and reminiscing, none so much as the arrival of a new year. From top 10 lists to the wise words of "Auld Lang Syne," ruminating on the past is almost a requirement. But we're taking a cue from fashion visionaries everywhere and bucking tradition. Instead of looking back at some of 2008's do's (ruffles) and don'ts (rompers), our final TrendSpotter column in the Sunday Source takes a peek into the fashion future. Here, the spring trends we've resolved to try in '09.
