This is just my personal list of major trends I've noticed(and you probaby noticed) too popping up everywhere.
We started 2009 off with:
-Over the knee/Thigh High Boots
[Fabiana OTK boots]
Hit or miss? It's a tie. Personally I would never wear them.I shudder at the thought..but this one of those trends that look good with a Balmain(inspired)dress and a model.
Say it like Stella from Project Runway-LEAAHHTHA! Hahaha.
Hit or miss? Hit. Leather is one of those timeless trends.
I don't own anything leather but I've wanted a leather bomber jacket for about 3 years now. Sigh.
-The Feminine Touch
Hit or Miss? Hit x 12,000. That doesn't matter menswear inspired looks are out. They're just more feminine and fitted to a woman's body and girlish appliques are added.
Just about every designer showcased a look featuring one of these things:ruffles,brooches,bows and tailored waistcoats.
Hit or Miss? Hit,OK! It gets really cold. Chunky knits did not make you look chunky. It all depends how you where it. If you want to wear a chunky knit sweater dress,add a belt to cinch in the waist and give you an automatic hourglass shape.
-Ripped Thights and Stockings
Hit or Miss?Miss
Neo grunge was definitely in effect in 2009. Blame it on Jenny Humprey.I get the whole I'm- a- rockstar- and- I-don't- care- about- my- image look but this just looks...messy,unkempt and trying way too hard all in one.
Hit or Miss? HIT!
Michael Jackson's passing definitely lit the torch that was under this fashion. I have a military inspired pea coat that I've shown you guys(a couple of posts back) that I love.Not all of us are ballsy enough to go all out the full military/marching band jacket with the chains and embroidery but it's an innovative trend. Refreshing!
Stay tuned for Part 2...
