Links à la Mode: Fashion Spotlight: 2009

By 10:21 PM , , , , ,

As 2009 comes to an end, lets take a trip back down memory lane and look back on some the fashion trends of '09.


The Maxi Dress
They were everywhere this year, whether it be on the beach or on red carpets and school formals.



Chain bags
Giving us a break from lugging around our oversized bags, these bags could be slung on our shoulders keeping our hands free. As you can note a lot of the bags were also quilted.


Big shoulders and harem pants
Whether you loved it or hated it, both made a comeback in 2009.


Zip, Stud and Fringe Detail
Personally I still can't get enough of studded anything.



Going backless
Not only limited to dresses but shirts and bodysuits also had the back cutout this year.

  11. web design agencychauffeur cars sydneyThere is also a side room where things have been sorted and priced individually but I found it pretty pricey (but was stuff like furs and leather). I think this store is maybe not the best for op shopping newbies but I would recommend it for anyone with sewing abilities, those a little creative with their style and hardcore bargain hunters.
