Fall 2009 Fashion Trend : 40's and 80's

This fall we are seeing 40's fashion being revisited. The style of the 40's was mainly reflecting that of military uniform. Women wore shorter and boxy style jackets, swing skirts and hats. Later on in the era broad shoulders, tight waists, high waist pants, pencil skirts, draping were popular. Generally speaking from hard edge to curves.

For Fall 2009 we saw a few designer revisit the 40's, such as Ellie Saab, Dolce & Gabbana, Karl Lagerfield and even Victoria Beckham.

Lanvin Fall 2009

Victoria Beckham Fall 2009

Another big fashion trend this fall is inspired by the 80's. Designers like Marc Jacob, Balmain, Preen, and Versaci to name a few that had sequins, sparkles, leather, one shoulder and big padded shoulders running through their collection.

Balmain Fall 2009

I love this look and Blake Lively looks stunning in this little Balmain number. She wore this dress at the HBO Emmy Awards after-party last month

Gucci Fall 2009

I love the power shoulder with sexy short skirt combination. I think that the two extremes are complimenting and gives an edgy look. The silhouette of the 40's and 80's can be quite flattering when certain elements of it are used and adapted to create a more modern, 'today' look.

Here are some high street and more affordable versions of these trends.

So many lovely trends this fall and I am sure we can all find something we like out there.
