5 Fashion Essentials of Summer 2009


No doubt by now you will have read several hundred posts on this very topic – every blogger worth their salt out there is trying to point you in the right direction of what to wear this summer. Never been shy of jumping on a bandwagon when it comes rolling past, we thought that we would chip in with what we feel are the clothes to wear this summer.

So, without any further ado, here are our top five fashions of the summer 2009………….men, we’ll do you next!

1 – Printed Leggings – these have been a divisive fashion item for a number of years, but since M.I.A started producing them for her own clothing line, they have suddenly became very cool again. Mix and match with care however.

2 – One-shouldered rules! – Very sexy look if done right, Tops and Dresses with one shoulder are really beginning to come into their own on the high street. Great for summer as they can be used in a variety of scenarios that may arise. Think simple and elegant and you can’t go far wrong, like this from Oasis……

3 – Transparent Layers – Think of Chiffon and you may have flashbacks of old pictures of your mum in the 1970s – however, this is the 21st century and things have moved on (a bit). Transparent layers are a great, subtle way of enhancing your look.

4 – Denim Skirts – This has been a controversial choice here at WCTW – but the majority prevailed and the denim skirt makes it in the list. Choose with care however.

5 – Short Leather Jackets a great compliment to any look. We like this from Promod, think Uma in Kill Bill Volume 2 and you’re on the right lines.
