September 7th, 2009
Labor Day is over, so it’s time to start saying goodbye to Summer and hello to Fall. And while we’ll miss the carefree days and warm weather, we’re looking forward to the drama and layering of Fall fashion. As we approach Fashion Week Spring 2010, we’re taking a look back to our favorite looks from Fashion Week Fall 2009. Our favorite looks feature bold silhouettes–and great details that make the looks as exciting close-up as they are from far away. Here’s our top 5 trends from Fashion Week Fall 2009 - each for under $100:
The Structured Coat
ASOS Pintuck Mac | $82.76 at ASOS
How to wear it: Let a pretty blouse spill out from under this gorgeous pintucked mac jacket. Finish off the look with a pair of killer heels.
The Dramatic Sweater
Ilana Dolman Sweater | $44.50 at Delias
How to wear it: Go for a dramatic big-over-small look by pairing this roomy dolman sweater with straight leg or skinny jeans.
The Asymmetric Zipper
Rare Asymmetric Zip Dress | $55.17 at ASOS
How to wear it: This asymmetric zip dress makes a statement by itself - so no need to go overboard on accessories. A sleek clutch and a pair of heels will do the trick.
The Color Grey
Drawstring Sweater Top | $24.90 at Heritage 1981
How to wear it: Use this deep grey sweater as a layering piece. Don’t you love the texture of the knit?
The Disco Influence
Sequin One Shoulder Top | $19.80 at Forever 21
How to wear it: Party like it’s 2009 in clothes that would have worked equally well in 1979. Since sequins are so eye-catching, we recommend opting for a partially sequined top (or dress) instead of one that’s completely covered. Keep this dramatic top company with a pair of chic booties.
