2009 has been the year of “everything works, anything goes”. There really were no original fashion trends, rather a mash-up of seasons past. 70’s disco, 80’s punk and 90’s grunge were in full-effect. We saw glitter, sequins, lace, florals, velvet, ruffles, shredding, cutouts, zippers and chains, and embellishments galore.
Whether your style is Rocker Girl, Boho Chic or Classic, you probably rocked some of these trends of 2009:
Oversized Tees, Embellished Tees, Motorcycle jackets, Military jackets, Mini Dresses, Maxi Dresses, Harem Pants, Short-Shorts, Rompers, Jumpsuits, Shoulder Pads, Leggings, Boyfriend Blazers, Fur Vests
Low-Rise, High-Rise, Skinny, Wide-Legged, Boyfriend, Acid Wash
Ankle Booties, Over-the-Knee, thigh-highs, gladiators, Platforms, Cage Heels
