Spring/Summer fashion trends 2009

Soon the snow will melt and so-much awaited spring will come. Great anticipation of new things to come, take your time and browse for shopping  spring or summer garments to diversify your wardrobe and lifestyle  as well.
No more dull winter sweaters, warm boots or heavy coats – only nice spring-inspired colored clothes!

These spring and summer 2009  fashion trends are bright and chic.

Some new designs are created, silhouettes that seemed to have gone away forever return back to fashion and lots of details which have been popular.
So, what exactly is going to be in vogue this season?
The trendiest colors of the forthcoming spring and summer are all about brightness and vividness:
emerald green, purple, orange, brown, red and gold.

However, some designers seem to stick to softer hues, such as grey, metallic, beige or light tones of blue as they are typical spring colors, colors of natural landscapes, flowers and sky. They symbolize the awakening of the nature after the long cold winter season.

Nevertheless, the majority of couturiers prefer using bright tints in their collections probably because they are already tired of dull winter scenery and want to make the life brighter and more exciting! Teeming with life new energy.  The most fashionable colors for this spring and the summer are the following:


Red

Passionate Red has penetrated almost every fashion sphere: clothes, accessories, shoes. It is seen everywhere and in various tones. It will probably influence every look, accessory and style of the other seasons, soon taking over as a cult color. Red is the ultimate symbol fiery of love and passion, that is why I put it as number one trendy color! Clothes and accessories in passion red will emphasize the natural sensuality and charm of the woman, expressing her femininity and elegance.

At the same time the color is strong and decided. When wearing garments in this hue you will appear more dynamic, original and determined, that will show your confidence and preparedness to achieve the goals, surely eye catching.




Green

Green is extremely popular with designers this season.Each has used at least one or two items in this color. It looks chic and classy and very timely as the green grass starts growing and new leaves appear on the trees.The hue is strong but, at the same time, attractive and extremely chic


Gold

Rich Gold is also very much used by the designers, but mostly for accessories, such as shoes, belts or handbags (purses and pochettes). Golden accessories look exceptionally luxurious and can be worn with elegant beige or black dresses. Gold color is highly fashionable and reflects and complements a woman’s natural sparkle.Gold accessories are often embellished with pearls, shining crystals, or even more precious jewels and thus are perfect for chic parties.


Yellow and orange

Bright yellow and orange are more appropriate for summer and expresses the positivity and joy of the strong, determined and confident woman who is sure of herself, happy and very beautiful. She is aware of the fact all the eyes are drawn to her. She looks stunning and sophisticated.




Purple

Purple was a choice for winter and it is still with us, available in many different shades and tones. It can be combined with fuchsia or bright pink to create a really amazing effect which will never go unnoticed. Purple is for a decided woman who respects herself and pays attention to details. Purple is a perfect color to be worn if you want to look seductive but mysterious and original.


Brown

Elegant Brown is a color good for every season. It is used in clothes and accessories as well and looks very elegant but not so much severe as black. Brown is a neutral color which can go with every look, from the most casual to the most innovative.


Black and white
Classic black and white are always in fashion and especially good for evening attires where elegance and charm are a must.

White is the color of purity and harmony while black means elegance and sophistication. When these two shades are combined together the result is stunning – stylish, modern, classy and just fabulous!




Grey

Light grey is gaining popularity season after season. Now it is hard to find a shop that doesn’t offer grey clothes or accessories. They are everywhere because grey is considered one of the most elegant and stylish colors, along with black and white. It will still be in fashion again next year due to its irresistible charm and refinement.


Beige
Beige as well as other pastels are very widely used in designers’ creations. They’re soft and elegant and looks good on every woman if chosen correctly. It is good for formal and casual wear though we often see garments in this color even on the red carpet worn by celebrities. Besides, it is easy to be combined with other items. So, if you want to look beguiling and elegant at the same time beige is the best choice.

As you can see colors for the spring and summer are almost all very bright and very expressive! They are for confident women, but I hope that even those who are not very much confident will become more self-assured thanks to the vividness of their garments.
