Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 09

Author: Andrew Regan

This summer, several key trends will be appearing on the beach, by the pool and after hours. While the seasonal forecasts have been around since 2008, you can now begin to get your hands on the trickle-down of styles and suggestions that were first seen on catwalks months ago.

As with every season, you’ll find a range of stand-out trends from which high street fashion stores have either drawn directly or taken a subtle nod. This means you can either emulate the key trends effortlessly, or mix it up to get a flavour of what’s hot in amongst your own summer style.

This summer’s style pack will undoubtedly be rocking the risqué sheer and see-through trend, which will keep you cool when it heats up. You can mix up the sheer trend with heavier fabrics too, for example, a sheer, floaty underskirt or dress, teamed with a chunky knit will not only keep you warm as the sun sets, but the combination of styles, fabrics and textures will look effortlessly chic.

You’ll also want to pay attention to trousers, because they’re going to be big this summer. Making a fashion statement is easy in the trouser of the season and this spring/summer, the eastern influenced harem trouser is positively de rigueur. You can dress harem pants up or down as they’re perfect either for a lazy morning walk with flip flops, or with killer heels, chunky belt and loose fitting shirt for a night on the town with the girls or boys.

Fringing is also going to be big this summer, which suits every cowgirl down to the ground. From suggestive leather thonging on oversized handbags, to fringed hems on trousers, skirts and even full-length fringing on dresses, ala Raf Simons at Jil Sander; Nicolas Ghesquière at Balenciaga and even Chanel are getting in on the action with the fringe benefits of this look.

In terms of cutting, biased, asymmetry and one-shoulder dresses, tops and swimwear are everywhere. Channelling a Grecian vibe, single-shoulders are alluring and practical and are great for keeping cool when the weather is warm.

Finally, to be en point with the key spring/summer women’s fashion trends this year, hit the shops hunting prints – the more vibrant and colourful, the better. Think clashing, outrageous eye-catching pops of colours and textures and you’ll be well on your way. John Galliano for Dior, Roberto Cavalli and Christopher Kane were all over this trend this season and so should you.
