Fashion Week 2009 wouldn’t be Fashion Week if we weren’t able to glean fabulous fashion trends for the upcoming season from the typical creative, bold pieces that debut at Fashion Week! In this current economic market where all the news about doom and gloom keeps us shoppers far more conscientious about our spending, we thought we would touch on a few of the trends that can be implemented in more economic fashions for those of us who can only dream about buying those couture fashions at the moment.
Fashion Trend # 1 – We loved the use of bold colors. We are seeing lots of purple, the smokey shade we have previously mentioned in our blog posts, but also bold shades of purple with blue hues, so it isn’t the same Joker color purple that seems so circa 1980 now.
One of our favorite tops in this blue/purple is the Modal Jersey with Silk Cotton Voile SS Scoop Neck with Buttons by Splendid. We love this Splendid Tee because it is full of feminine details with the gathered and puffed sleeve, the buttons in the center of the scoop neck and of course the bold “Blurple” color. We also saw other colors like yellow, orange, green, brown and those metallic shades that are so popular right now.
Don’t throw out your grey clothing just yet either. Grey and that smokey shade of grey will still be big this fall. We love the different shades of grey ranging from darker charcoal shades such as Splendid’s “Coal” version of the Rayon Slub Boatneck which we also carry in “Russet” a bold shade of Orange.
So the key takeaway for those of us who are looking for budget conscious clothing these days: adding a few key pieces in bold colors is a great way to keep your wardrobe hip and trendy while still watching your check book. As illustrations, both of these tops by Splendid are economical ways to still bring a bold bit of color to give your current wardrobe an upgrade with a fashionable piece that won’t break the bank.
