Fall trends: Love and Hate

Image from

After reading this article about fall 2009 trends at WhoWhatWear, I realized its trend is a mixture of what I love and hate.

I love...
  • Platform pumps: Uncomfortable it may be to walk around, you can't deny the fact it makes your legs long and sexy.
  • Razzle Dazzle legs: I love wearing tights in winter. If it is embellished or textured, it's even better. Most of all, it is practical to wear tights in cold winter, they keep you warm!
  • Long sleeve mini dresses: I'm already planning on making many mini dresses for my shop this fall/winter. American Apparel always has the most basic yet perfect basic dresses like this long sleeve one. I love the versatility of this item - you can simply wear it by itself, or can pair with a skirt to make it look like a top!
  • Slouchy overcoat: I like having fun with coats - that's the first thing people see in the winter. It does look complicated to draft the pattern of those though.
  • Winter shorts, paired with opaque tights.
  • Lingerie display: If this is done correctly, I think it would look very chic. If it's done badly, you risk being look like a hooker though.

I hate...
  • Sculpted shoulders: Don't they look like a crown? It is just unnatural to make your shoulder protruded like that.
  • Knee-high boots: I have never seen a person who can pull this off correctly. You necessarily look like a prostitute... I might change my mind once I see someone wearing them in a classy, and good-girl way. I hate to look cheap and easy.
