Trend Report: Spring Summer 2009

Lately, recession has affected every walk of our lives. The recession has left its mark on anything and everything; IT Industry, Telecom Industry, Media Industry, and even the Fashion Industry. Recession has definitely altered the flow of fashion. For SS09, fashion has turned recession friendly.  Few designers even brought back the 80s fashion. Summer means colour. Update your wardrobe with all bright colours. Flaunt all the flashy colours to grab attention. Getting the boy look is another craze of the season. Geometric prints, tribal prints and other funky prints are much into vogue.  Apart from these, sexy silhouettes, acid wash jeans, sun-drenched wash have ruled the ramps all around the world.

Throw some Colour
Colours are seen everywhere this summer. Go bright and grab attention. Yellow and blue emerged as the hot favourites of this season. Blue was a common story almost in every ramp show.

Go Geometric
Designers like Oscar de la Renta, CK, D&G have experimented with geometric shapes and cuts in their collection. Wear shirts with sexy geometric prints to make alternative fashion statement.

Perfect Asymmetry
Asymmetry is everywhere. Asymmetric shoulders, asymmetric collars, asymmetric sleeves, asymmetric bodice. Asymmetric clothes are best worn in short length especially when the garment is voluminous.

Harem pant

Denim Craze
