Diva Magazine's spring 2008 top looks

I brought home from Vienna several fashion magazines including Diva, an Austrian publication. And I'm so glad I bought it as it features amazing pictures. You can see them here and here. The magazine also has a look book highlighting the main trends of the up coming season, which are:

1. Floral: big, colorful, busy prints and even floral fabric appliqué

2. Decades: the20s, the golden 50s and the 70s are in the spot again.

4. Man chic: suits, loose blazers, vests but also short shorts.

7. Spring 2008's shoes, bags and accessories are flashy, loud, and colorful, with eccentric shapes: patchwork handbags, innovative heel shapes and "puzzle" belts and bracelets.
