When editors cull through the gazillions of Fashion Week photos, sanctioning the official trends of the season, it's such a deadly serious business. Which is why Teen Vogue gets it right: they make their choices and demonstrate how to wear them...with a sense of humor. And even if some of the choices are on the young side - it is aimed at teens, after all - their editorials are a really fresh source of ideas. Check out the Teen Vogue Top Spring 2009 Trends: Perhaps you weren't planning to add a metallic mini to your wardrobe, but why not take whatever metallic you have from last season (probably a bag or shoe) and update it with something preppy? Ditto city shorts: a tad longer and paired with edgy lace sandal/booties, et voila - instant chic! And the jumpsuit is definitely this season's new dress (although you may opt for a darker hue) and outfit no-brainer: a cinch to slip on, and paired with smart accessories, you look equally smart.
