Back in January, Vasil predicted the style trends that would rule 2009. Have you been seeing a shift in style towards looks defined by earthy colors, ruffles, silhouette-defining belts, and mixed patterns in the last couple of months? We certainly have! Here are our favorite trend-based looks for this summer!
- Mixing solid colors with light prints adds interest and fun to your outfits, like in Berry Cobbler. This accessorized two-pieced ensemble makes you appear perky and fun.
- In terms of color, Vasil predicted a domination of earthy and muted tones, primarily light beiges, pinks, and nudes: along with bold color accents. The light pink of Tier-amisu makes the outfit appear fresh and feminine, but the oversized bag is perfect for the girl with a lot on her plate and a lot to carry with her!

Ruffles, pleats, darts, and other cut details play a significant role in Spring/Summer 2009 trends.
- The Boulevard Before Dawn Dress can transform you from a work setting to a great cocktail party to any dressy summer event you want to attend. The combination of ruffles at the top and multiple pleats which follow the shape of the dress will create a balanced look and feature your feminine silhouette. The flowered purse and tights take this outfit that’s perfectly suitable for daytime outings to a more sophisticated “night out” look.
- The Origami Blouse adds the right dose of interest to this simple Mille-Feuille that’s perfect for a Sunday walk.
- It’s easy to lose the focal point of an outfit when there is an all-over pattern or print. The belt in this outfit showcases the waist and creates a focal point. Parfait is a great fit for any time of the day and for various occasions.
- Remember the Mixing Patterns post? Stripes and floral prints are so on-trend this season, why not mix them and create a unique look? Don’t forget when mixing patterns to look for something that makes them work together: such as color, accents, or even accessories.
