The year in fashion

Women’s fashion

-Bunny ears: Headbands turn quirky with this mini trend. Bunny ears and oversized bows. Vintage meets sugary girl next door.

-Boyfriend’s blazer: Continuing to be a trend for the spring/summer of 2010, the “boyfriend” blazer is a simple way to look chic, whether on a date or  that night out with the girls. Slightly oversized jackets or blazers, rolled up sleeves, the pinnacle of relaxed coolness.

-Statement jewelry: Jewelry was all about making that statement, whether it’s a necklace, a bangle or a cocktail ring. Ethnic, exotic stones, avant garde. One constant: It must be big and bold.

-Ripped jeans and torn denim: Just when you thought it was over… it’s back. This trend started back in 2008, and continued to grow, with a horde of sexed-up editorial shoots and celebrity sightings. The torn denim shorts and shredded jeans hit the street once again.

-Leather clothes: Perhaps you’re wondering what’s so new about leather, given the leather jacket has been such a wardrobe staple for the past few years? Well, the leather trend is extending far beyond just jackets and into pretty much every other type of clothing. You name it, we’ll be wearing it in leather in this colder months. Leather shorts, leather dresses, leather leggings… and more.

-Military fashion: A close cousin of the bohemian luxe trend, the military jacket strikes back in 2009 as a winter wardrobe staple. Whether feminised, rocked up or worn with sexy androgyny, it’s a winner.

Men’s fashion

-Men’s suits: cuts, styles…Picking a new suit is never an easy task; there’s the cut, the fabric and the quality all to worry about. Though men’s fashion trends change at a slow pace, and suits slowest of all, 2009 will see a major move away from the monochromatic skinny-boy suit to something a lot more masculine and adventurous. But don’t worry, the slim cuts aren’t going anywhere.

-Military menswear: A military-inspired jacket is a must-have for every fashionable male in 2009. From the more daring swashbuckling outfits from Galliano to the futuristic gothic combat gear of Gareth Pugh, there were many examples of military styling on the Autumn (Fall)/Winter 2009-2010 runways.
