Fall and Winter 2009 Fashion Trends
As we are moving firmly towards winter 2009, let’s take a look at some of the trends for fall and winter this year. Here are a few of my favorites for this season:
Long over-the-knee boots
These are a great addition to keep you warm and dry throughout the rainy and cold season. You can wear these with a whole range of clothes. You don’t just have to stick to keeping them with short skirts. Try them under longer skirts and dresses. They also look great with skinny jeans and other tight trousers.
I’m all for fashion revivals and the 80s has to be one of the best. Derided by many at the time, it’s coming back with some serious force right now. Be prepared to see some big padded shoulders and shiny fabrics coming in this season. Those big padded shoulders can go on a number of clothing items from blazers, jackets and coats to dresses. Anything that sparkles and glitters is also going to be a big hit.
Leave behind those tight fitting coats this season because the cape is here. They range in size from those that will just cover your shoulders to long draping capes that will come down to your ankles. Stay well wrapped in one of these and protect yourself from the elements!
Big chunky knits
Another great item that’s going to help you look stylish while you keep the chills away. Big chunky knits are all the rage this season. Look for sweaters and cardigans, scarves and dresses. Patterns on the big knits should be bold and chunky.
One shoulder look
Now this one has been around for a little while now and is going from strength to strength. Asymmetric lines are key and this look applies to a while range of clothing items. From dresses and tops right through to swimwear you can see that the one shoulder look is everywhere.
Hopefully you love these new (and not so new) styles as much as I do. I’m especially fond of my new cape and I’m almost looking forward to some really cold winter weather knowing that I’m all snugly wrapped away.
