Judging from what Karl Lagerfeld created for the 2010 Chanel Haute Couture collection, ear-like bouffants will be spring's must-have hair style. (If you identify with Minnie Mouse, that is.)

Hair aside, with a palette of cool pastels ranging from dove grey to blushing pink, the 2010 Chanel Haute Couture collection definitely made a case for lavish femininity--what with its oversized bows, rosette detail and liquid silk gowns.

Implications - Youth consumers are looking to the past as fodder for their style choices. This stems from a fear of the future and a desire to return to a simpler time filled with nostalgia. Companies should create products that are retro and vintage to capture the mindset of this group. Stats for Pastel Bouffant Fashion Trending: Older & Average
