Fall 2009 Fashion Trends

Sky-High Boots
Boots have always been a staple for fall, but this season, designers are taking it to a whole new level with over-the-knee and thigh-high boots going mainstream. From stylish suede to luscious leather, this sexy trend is available in a variety of heel sizes and colors. Tip: Avoid chunky heels and patent finishes, which can look too over the top.

Cold Shoulder
A carry-over from spring, the one-shoulder trend is back with an edgy new twist for fall. In addition to the elegant, asymmetrical tops and gowns that graced the fall runways, this season brings slits, slashes and carefully constructed cutouts. Designed for a subtle allure, this fashion-forward style allows women to show some skin and still leave plenty to the imagination.

Military Style
We love a woman in uniform. This fall’s military fashion takes the cake as one of the season’s hippest, most innovative trends.  An offshoot of the bohenmian luxe trend, the look takes the form of vests, peacoats and cropped jacks with gold detailing and ornate trims for a rock n’ roll style with a feminine flair. Wear it with skinny pants or leggings over-the-knee boots or stilettos for a killer ensemble.

Sequins & Metallics
Think sequins are just for evening? Think again. This season, sequins and shimmering metallics are shining bright on both evening and daywear. Spotted adorning stylish tees as well as blazers, vests and sleek menswear-style suits, the look can be dressed up or dressed down to bring a bit of glam to the everyday.
