Stilorama Magazine’s fashion editor Stephanie Holding casts an eye on winter’s 2010 catwalk trends. “Sale fever is over; it’s time to bring in the new! And it hasn’t escaped our notice that our fave stores are wooing us with rails packed with deep wintery hues, sumptuous fabrics and fresh styles to kick our maxi dresses in to the recesses of our wardrobes. So what do you stock up on for the forthcoming season? Here are three sure-fire ways to rock autumn/winter 2009.
For those young enough to remember the 1980’s, you’ll be struck by déjà-vu. Those not so fortunate to have experienced the fashion faux pas of the 80’s, you are about to see the best of the decade revamped and updated for the Naughties. Think sculpted shoulders, lamé and glitter, shoulder pads, one-shoulder styles and MC Hammer pants. Marc Jacobs lead the revival with ruffled metallic mini dresses, monster shoulders and crimped bouffant hair. Similarly, at Louis Vuitton, he explored the decade with exaggerated shoulders, bubble skirts and plenty of ruching. The 1980’s theme continued with one-shoulder styles from the likes of Versace, Michael Kors and Emilio Pucci. Power dressing by way of giant shoulders was most notable at Balmain, Zac Posen and Balenciaga. Pick any of these symbols of 1980’s chic and you’ll sail through next season!
Another trend getting us excited is this season’s penchant for leather. Taking on a feminine feel this season, sophistication and elegance are key. Investing in a sleek leather coat is the perfect way to get in on the act. Whether a trench, as seen at Viktor and Rolf, or a blazer, as at Loewe, there’s something for everyone – and for those biker chicks who can’t resist a harder edge, Alexander Wang’s biker jackets are ideal!
Bringing out the woman in you, some designers turned to boudoir style dressing for pure sex appeal. Whether it be with lace details, as at Vuitton, or corsets, as at Fendi, accentuating the bust, be sure to draw attention to your best assets. Play up on your feminine wiles with sheer fabrics exposing the most feminine of attributes: the décolletage.
Fun is crucial to the new season. The doom and gloom of the economic crisis has taken its toll but get your own back with these top trends. And seeing as the sun is insisting on hiding this summer, we suggest you get your autumn/winter wardrobe in shape now!”
