Los Angeles is known for its casually chic offerings and bold red-carpet statements. And for Spring, the looks on the runway ranged from soft feminine fashions to tough-chic styles tinged with leather and studs. After nearly a month of shows at the many organized events and independent presentations around town, the look for the season included a variety of new trends and statement-making pieces. Garments suitable for the stage but wearable enough for daytime included sequined dresses and underwear as outerwear looks with a dramatic effect. There were touches of the '80s with shoulder treatments,
asymmetric necklines and blazers. And key silhouettes ranged from soft feminine dresses, rompers and harem pants to skinny jeans, leather moto jackets and bondage-inspired gowns.
Here is a look at Spring trends from the L.A. runways.
