As much as many of us might like to flit through town wearing formalwear, 10-inch heels, or sheer pants that have side slits up to the bum, we all know that the most of the fashions that get sent down the runway will never, ever see the light of day in real life. But a few key pieces, and looks, from the Spring 2010 collections that walked in NY and Paris are cropping up around city streets in LA. Expect to see the return of lingerie as outerwear, as inspired by the likes of Marc Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana—as is well evidenced by the Rodarte for Target line. And maybe those Jerell Scott looks we showed you last week weren’t too off the mark, as print-on-print-on-print is also supposed to be a go. Finally, one last notable, but worrisome, trend is visible Spanx under shorts, as seen in the photo at right. Apparently the look has already been spotted around New York; since we’re enjoying an unusually warm fall here in LA, it’s probably only a matter of days till we see it here.
