These are some of the trends for fall winter 2009 2010 according to Style.com
Byker brigade – Designers went, ahem, hog wild for zipped and shrunken toppers this season.
Boudoir crossing – From lacy bralettes at Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton to molded corsets at Fendi and Hussein Chalayan, all eyes were on the bust for Fall.
Forties & fabulous – The costume designer who made an icon of Joan Crawford and a virtue of out-to-there shoulder pads would have approved of the Fall 2009 productions.
Party like it’s 1980 – The eighties—the decade that fashion won’t forget.
Ruche hour – Designers went completely drape for Fall.
Smart investments – The classics were back in full force on the runways— double-breasted jackets, tweeds. In risky times, nothing spells sartorial security like a Burberry trench, a Chanel suit, or, just possibly, a swaggering fur-lapel great coat from Hermès.
