It is time again to make your collection of clothes more stylish. This 2009 will be all about rich colors and fabrics. The look will be more refined and formal. The sensuous and flowing romantic silky shirts, as well as all the velvets and brocades, along with the deep, violets and dark blacks are all flavors of the season.
If you have pasty skin, you are in luck because it is the in look to show off this season. The trendy colors of the season tend to remind one of a hot dog with a biting flavor – red, yellow, green, white, and of course brown.
The brocades, velvets and all that heavy stuff are must haves this season. Ignore the fact that they look a lot like your drapes and curtains. They can also be embellished with a glint of metallic. Remember Nelson, Captain Cook and the great Admiral Nimitz? Suddenly the admiralty seems parked in the fashion port. Hold your engines and plonk down the shekels for a really good navy blue jacket with a Neru collar and a just a little embellishments like faux medals with them.
A terrific fashion tip is to go mix and match. Just take the high-end expensive silks, brocades, cashmeres, and mix them up with the durable, cheaper canvas and wool fabrics. Stay away from the outcast polyesters. Though the season is dominated by fur, it is a good idea to go in for faux fur and avoid being picketed by the PETA.
Turn to Hollywood for inspiration from the glamour divas of yore. Pick up the nifty ones among dinner or evening coats in a good store. Be warned you could spark a riot with a terrific outfit. One for the ladies is a pair of those dreamy, flowing men’s wear pants, preferably in black, for a slim and elongated look.
Once in a while go for a Boho glamour look on those days when you feel sick of being a fashion follower. Surprise must have for this season is a pair of house dresses, really as there will be quite a few high end house dresses swirling about in the high society parties and awards nights
