Sheer fabric is back as one of hottest 2009 and 2010 fashion trends, and plenty of celebrities are wearing it. But don't worry, it's not all about tight, see-through tops, and dresses that scream 'look at me' as we saw in the 1990s. Run your eyes over the Spring / Summer 2009 and spring/summer 2010 runway collections and you'll find sheer fabrics used in a multitude of ways: tight sheer pieces, layers, and the much sought after delicate, feminine draping. And elegance really is the key to wearing the sheer fashion trend this year. While it was last at its most popular in the 1990s, it was in 2006 that it last hit our radar.
Knitted fashion are the next big trend for the coming autumn and fall 2009. If you think that hand made woolen sweater are for your grandmother think again, your very wrong. The style is catching up so fast that fashion freaks have incorporated it.The designers are being very creative with the wools and there is almost everything stylish from the scarfs to the sweaters and dresses to the stoles available in them. So, if you too want to get into the vibe and give a look of that very trendy and chic in the coming winters, then get into some of these pieces that are sure to keep you warm and sexy.

Since i always wanted to work out on a gym but i have no time for it.. This new sneakers from reebok would definitely help me... Easy tone is designed to help give definition to your legs and butt with no more effort than it takes to walk (as a matter of fact, a page on their website claims that you get benefits from just standing in place).. The EasyTone makes use of balance pods, which are designed to create natural instability that increases the activation of key muscles, resulting in 11% more activity in your calves and thighs, and 28% more activity for your glutes. Hope this one really works for me.. Lets find out and see..

just be careful not to overdo it. If you're pretty understated, go for quiet checks in grey, brown, navy blue and bottle green, and if you're more of a style extrovert, try livelier colour combos (red and black or red and brown, for example). 1. www. paulsmith.co.uk 2. www.gap.com 3.

This season's trend is for fitted jackets , with either one or two buttons. Go for straight or wide trousers traight, large even, without turn-ups. An alternative is the 3-piece suit which is back in, plus the double-breasted suit has made a comeback in the designer collections. How to wearAvoid black or charcoal, which are often too formal. Suggest lighter greys, or taupe and navy for a change. Experiment with tie colours and textures. There are no set rules here, but don't forget that bright colours add a bit of personality to dark outfits.
Stylish accessories (belts and shoes) will set off a suit. Another way to wear the 3-piece is to swap the waistcoat for a dark sleeved or sleeveless cardigan.

Ideal for everyday, the urban look goes down well with guys who don't have to wear a suit and tie every day. Think denim with classic shirts, merino or cashmere sweaters, narrow fine wool trousers and smart shoes. 1 - WE autumn/winter 2008-09 collection www.wefashion.com

Long live rock! Jeans are rock uniform, but if youre done your homework you'll know that this season they're narrrow (but not skinny), in blue or faded grey. Don't forget matching items are the key to the 'arty but rebellious' look: wear with a coordinated or rock slogan T-shirt (The Stones, Bowie, etc.). The classic black leather jacket is also making an appearance in grey, white, and blue, and a Blues Brothers hat is a must-have accessory!1 - Lee autumn/winter 2008-09 collection www.lee.com

Stop going too oversized. There's a fine art to baggy clothing: just a bit too big can look strange, but far too big can look plain daft! Steer away from loud logos and you'll look far classier.1 - WE autumn/winter 2008-09 collection www.wefashion.com

2009 fashion collection
Tartans are also called plaids, checkered clothes.. Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours. Tartans originated in woven cloth, now used in many other materials. Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland. Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. (Tartan is also known as plaid in North America, but in Scotland, a plaid is a tartan cloth slung over the shoulder or a blanket.)
My must haves are a plaid shirt to wear with leggings or jeans or a plaid skirt paired with a simple black, gray or white top.
No neutral colors. In the ’80s, people were either crazy-bright and colorful or in severe all-black. The ’80s essentially boils down to these two concepts: a glittery bustier/party dress, a bright spandex dress. You can break these two pieces down into separates: just a full tutu-skirt or just a bustier top; a stretchy tube skirt or bright leggings. Once you have your ’80s piece, add some cool layers, like a white button-down knotted at the waist, a slouchy jean jacket, or blazer. Don’t forget some black tights or leggings. For shoes, try simple structured ballet flats or some sort of crushed lace-up boots. Go light on the jewelry, and let the focus be on the clothes. Add simple earrings, like hoops or studs, and leave it at that.

The ruling attendant steams before the infinite disguise.
One of the biggest trends this season is having studs on just about everything—bags, dresses, jeans, jackets, accessories, and shoes. It’s a great add-on to any piece of clothing and is just as versatile as any ornament for fall. You can pull off this studded accent in different ways.
- Incorporate a rocker/biker look with matching leather and chains for a hardcore tough chick style.
- If you’re not up for that head-to-toe style but still want that edgy look, wear them in small doses like on cool gladiator sandals to give your outfit added oomph.
- If your style is feminine and girly but you’d love to try this accent, wear your flowy dresses and pastel ensembles with studded accessories like bags and shoes in very soft and simple designs.
Promo period is from August 14 to September 3, 2009
neutral shades like gray gained sophistication and versatility, its a jack of all shades because you can wear it with anything hue whether dressed down or glam it up.. this drapey dress can also be worn with ankle length colored tights just try the maroon, teal or lipstick pink
