in celebration of color for FW09
By sophistix on October 12, 2009
Just in time for fall, here are some of the hottest color trends for FW09/10. Channel these winter colors in a sunny style through our tropical inspired collection. For this season, the runway looks were mostly of simpler design and made of more affordable fabrics. Most designers had lessened the number of items in their collections as well, all in the name of the recession that we are currently facing. Colors have turned more to the dark side (a random Star Wars reference there ;) ). Generally, winter fashions are styled in darker shades, so that is really no surprise. There are however some surprises in bright reds and spring-inspired shades like green. So find which hue suits you best and wear it in style this season!
A classic set of shades for this fall are black and its close cousin, gray. Black especially is a classic favorite that is generally always found in winter collections. Pair black and gray separates with brighter shades like red, green or orange. These classic basics provide lovely neutral canvases for you to create your own personal fashion style by accessorizing well. These elegant monochrome basics are wonderful to offset bright shades. These will always be wardrobe staples so add them to your collection now!
Elegance and sophistication are to be had when wearing these pretty pastel pieces. Shades of cream, beige, pink and orange add some quiet style to your wardrobe. Pastel shaded dresses are girly and feminine. Add accessories like hats, necklaces, headbands and earrings to maximize the delicate femininity inherent in this collection.
Red is a bold color that is a key shade for FW09. Layer bright red pieces over basic shades like black, gray or white to create contrast and visual interest in your outfits. Use these red separates as accents for your outfits. Choose from a variety of pieces like jumpsuits, jackets and skirts to see which one fits your style best!
Another classic color for winter is blue in its many varied shades from navy to turquoise to sky blue to aquamarine. Each of these shades is unusual in itself so do take the time to see which one suits you best. Blue speaks of elegant nights and snowy winter days - a wonderful color to wear this season. It is soothing and lovely for any occasion. Accessorize with tights and big earrings for a cheery tropical winter style.
Green, in all its many shades, is an unusual color this season. Green is generally a spring color but this season it speaks of the hopes of the future. Wear these lovely lightly colored green dresses with headbands and stylish straw bags to create an unusual summery look this winter!
So whatever your color style, there is something from this season’s collection for you to add to your winter wardrobe. Think about what kind of look you want to project and try to work these separates into your existing wardrobe. And, of course, do drop us a comment if you have any style questions!
