Best fashion trends of 2009
Fashion in 2009 inspired new trends and sought after the essence featuring geometric designs and floral motifs aiming to capture any taste, feeling and cultural heritage with beige, midnight blue, and caramel colors in a journey to classical innovation.
Fashion has always been fascinating. Looking back through history, fashion has always followed the statements of each season, leading men and women with boldness into a dynamic expression of oneself. Although for some people fashion is playful, it actually reflects society at any particular time. And what makes fashion even more interesting in 2009 is that, in spite of the current financial and credit crisis, people seize the fashion essence.
For 2009, womenís fashion has selected dynamic garments and high quality accessories. One shoulder asymmetric dresses and futuristic enhancements, vibrant color block mixing and geometric lines were some of the most impressive and characteristic fashion trends of 2009. Designers were given the space to enhance the one shoulder with braids, bows, ruffles and fringes in lemon yellow or deep-rose tones giving a fresh momentum to fashion styles and trends.
Some prime designers like Richard Nicoll, Narciso Rodriguez and Ella Moss have introduced a cool blend of fondant tones and vibrant bright colors or bold shades that have perfectly matched with opaque tights and ornate jackets. Hot pinks, tangerine, mango, lime, orange, aqua jade, and Santorini blue were the most popular colors used in color blocking, promoting wonderful garments and adding gusto and a brand savor to existing wardrobes.
Black and white was also a popular color scheme for 2009 featuring monochrome zebra and giraffe stripes and spots. Top-notch designers like Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld have preferred black and white ensembles honoring the all-time classic elegance of monochrome scheme that has translated perfectly to maritime schemes as well. Besides, black and white scheme is quite affordable and can be easily adapted to existing wardrobe.
For men, fashion trends in 2009 were kept quite simpler. Two-button suits, jeans, pinstripes and traditional blazers dominated in the fashion scene flattering larger men and making men with a more tapered silhouette looking even better. In regards to colors choices, soft pastels and vibrant neon colors were featured for menís fashion, mostly for younger men and people who have an active profile.
However, one of the latest trends introduced to the menís market was quilted clothing. High street brands such as Dolce and Gabbana, Junya Watanabe and Gareth Pugh featured quilted jackets for men and have really altered the way men dress. Being way too advanced, quilted jackets came in black, brown and navy colors and have created a fashion edge for young, modern men. Particularly, black jackets look edgier with a casual outfit and are easily matched with nice jeans, a thin cotton v-neck and a pair of fancy workboots.
Overall, fashion in 2009 inspired new trends and sought after the essence featuring geometric designs and floral motifs aiming to capture any taste, feeling and cultural heritage with beige, midnight blue, and caramel colors in a journey to classical innovation.
Christina Pomoni Like most of the people I wear many different hats.
I work as a financial and investment advisor but my passion is writing, music and photography. Writing mostly about finance, business and music, being an amateur photographer and a professional dj, I am inspired from life.
Being a strong advocate of simplicity in life, I love my family, my partner and all the people that have stood by me with or without knowing. And I hope that someday, human nature will cease to be greedy and demanding realizing that the more we have the more we want and the more we satisfy our needs the more needs we create. And this is so needless after all.
