Time for F/W 2009 - 2010 shopping!

As people say, get the things you may need ready in good time, time you checked out the hottest looks for this coming fashion season.

Experts say this coming fall and winter will be all about strong silhouettes and sophisticated glamour. Decadent features are present in many F/W 2009-10 key looks and reflect the current economic situation.

However, 80s disco style and bold looks will anyway find their own place in your wardrobe if you want to follow the fashion tendencies in full. It’s like all about girl power! See what I mean.

Get the shoes. Go fancy
Footwear goes surreal this coming season. The more extravagance and crazy you look the better. Opt for dramatic designs and exaggerated heels. Hardware embellishment is really hot, too.

Puss-in-boots style makes its glorious comeback in fall 2009. Long boots win over stilettos.

Moreover, designers let you go further and try thigh-high black suede skinny leg boots, one of the hottest key looks for the winter. Channel the inner Catwoman, girl!

Fancy shoulders
Padded shoulders made the comeback in Spring/ Summer 2009 and the trend remains strong for fall and winter as well. Get bold exaggerated shoulders to get a genuinely In look for this cold season.

80s style

Thanks to Marc Jacobs and the like, a strong disco-diva vibe is back to our wardrobes. Vibrant colors, sequined skirts, leather jackets, graphic tees and large polka dots - you can find inspiration in old 80s music videos and films!

Chain it!

Let some classic beauty in your life. Chain bags that are influenced by the Chanel 2.55 bag are so in vogue for fall and winter 2009 - 2010. Chain strap bags can be worn as lovely clutches and across-body style. Just like with the heels, metal embellishment is really huge for bags, too.

Bold heavy accessories & jewelry

No need to restrain yourself from getting extra large with accessories. Go oversized with chains and studs and jewelry and dramatic silhouettes. Thinking huge chunky rings and cuffs and leather bracelets.

Bold but demure
Glitter is still really hot. Shimmering fabrics are so in for f/W 09-10. To somehow balance the look designers suggest combing sparkling with demure cuts.

Back to the 40sGo back to the retro look with French chic - cinched waists are present in both casual wear and outerwear. Get ready to see belted coats, skirts and trousers.

Masculine femininity

Female fashion gets mannish. A masculine tailored blazer becomes one of the season’s key pieces. Typical men’s fabrics like tweed enter a woman’s wardrobe in the form of shift dresses and jackets.

Zebra & leopard
Animal prints are still huge. Zebra and leopard prints stand out and dominate the print palette. The characteristic feature of all prints this coming season is that they’re statement - exaggerated and strong.


Forget about carefully tailored coats. Go free with capes. Designers advise to pair them with elegant shift gowns.

They’ll keep you warm and trendy during cold months. Make sure your knitted clothes are bold, big and shoulder-padded.

Leather gloves

Love this trend. Unlike other seasons, this time gloves can be absolutely different. Play with colors and shapes. Just make sure the gloves are leather, as this material is definitely a lead one this fall and winter.

Yeti-lookNo I’m not asking you to stop cutting hair and having a shower. Channel your inner wild with the Yeti-look coats also known as Chubby. Shaggy coats in vibrant colors - that must be hot! You’ll look drop dead gorgeous and trendy if pair them with thigh-high boots and swagger.
