Name: Rob Fetner, manager of South Moon Under
Prediction for spring fashion trends: "I think that spring fashion this year has a lot of overlapping themes and trends. One of the major trends that I have noticed is a resurgence of all things '90s. Crop tops, slip dresses, graphic tees and tanks, and denim -- whether it be jackets, button-down shirts, baggy jeans or cut-off shorts - -all are heavily rooted in this era. Fluorescent colors, bold prints and lightweight, sheer fabrics are all going to be seen frequently this spring."
Dos or don'ts: "Don't go overboard. Find what trends you gravitate towards most and incorporate different aspects into your own wardrobe and lifestyle. This way, you don't break the bank and are still up-to-date with the latest fashions. There is no reason that you should have to re-buy your entire wardrobe season after season. Get a few key pieces you love that can be used for different occasions and worn in different ways -- accessories are always the easiest way to incorporate trends without looking like you've tried too hard. Besides, not everyone is going to love all of the trends; that's why trends come and go!"
Go-to item for spring: "I think having a pair of distressed [jeans] ... The fit of the jeans is totally up to you -- whether they're skinny or baggy, the amount of different ways to wear them is infinite. And who doesn't love a great pair of worn-in jeans?"
Spring pieces available right now: "We have a great pair of lightly distressed jeans by Joe's Jeans ($165). We also have a great tie-dyed denim button-down by Blank NYC ($88)."
