With the fall '12 shows just ending in New York (and heating up across the pond), we know it's sometimes hard to keep your mind planted firmly in the here and now (and by that, we mean winter '12). Well, how about we meet you halfway, and daydream a little bit about what will be stuffing our closets come spring, which is actually just around the corner.
We've tapped majorly fashion-forward shop owner Mira Pickett
, of Mission shop Mira Mira
to help us start thinking ahead. Beloved for introducing little-known labels to San Francisco (Gat Rimon, TBA, My Pet Square, Laugh Cry Repeat, etc.), Mira's something of an expert at spotting the runway's must-have looks well before they hit the masses. So, clearly, who better to dish on the top eight trends to invest in this spring? Get out your organizer, take notes, and plan your budget accordingly.
