Nu Wave

Nu Wave
Friday, April, 09, 2010 When it comes to big fashion trends this season, we can't help but reference the inimitable Debbie Harry. Specifically, we're referring to Blondie's classic cover of John Holt's reggae hit, "The Tide is High." The combination of the two¬--the band's new wave spirit plus that ocean-referencing title¬--seems to encapsulate spring's amazing and edgy take on surf style for us. For visual interpretations of this vibe, all you have to do is check out the spring runways, which are flooded with stunning punk-surfer pieces galore. Offering a tantalizing blend of sporty silhouettes and counterculture spirit, this look is one trend wave we definitely want to ride.
