Don’t Burn a Hole in Your Pockets !

Fashion trends are not so hard to forecast. Anyone can predict what’s going to be “in” one season & what is going to be “out” the next. When I look at it, it isn’t really a big secret at all. For those of you who don’t keep up to date on the fashion tip, you may not know that designers debut their collections for each season the season BEFORE. In the fashion world there are only two seasons, Fall and Spring. September (fall) is like the beginning of the fashion fiscal year.

This past week in Milan’s fashion week the world’s top designers premiered their designs for the upcoming Spring/Summer season of 2010, & the week before New York City’s Mercedes Benz fashion week show cased even more collections for Spring/Summer 2010. So when you think about it we can look at these fashion shows & designer collections to see what trends are set in play for 2010 before the year even ends.

My point is… we can look back to last season when the Fall 2009 collections were revealed & determine what’s “IN” this season. Having a high-fashion off the runway look doesn’t have to burn a hole in your pocket though. You can have that Louis Vuitton look without paying the Louis Vuitton Ready-to-Wear prices (you’d be better off buying a house & saving a few thousand dollars).

HERE ARE SOME 2009 READY-TO-WEAR DESIGNER COLLECTIONS THAT HAVE LOOKS YOU CAN FIND AT AFFORDABLE PLACES :-)…..



The tough-chic trend was very popular in Fall 09 runway shows. Balmain’s Christophe Decarnin, Haider Ackermann, Alexander Wang, and Roland Mouret all contributed in making this look a have-to-have.

This laid-back, warm chic look that Missoni debuted for fall 09 Ready-to-Wear is essential based on the sweaters and multiple scarves. The most outstanding pieces in this collection has to be the hood styled scarves known as snood’s.

With the meager work-study income I make, it’s extremely difficult to stay on top of fashion because what’s “in” is obviously more expensive and once the season (and style) is out it’s on sale. I’ve learned to invest in one or two things of the season and just working it to my own accord. And since styles repeat themselves, it’s always great keeping pieces from a couple of years ago that eventually are considered stylish again. It’d be awesome if you write an entry on thrift finds and the best places to find them around Boston.
