Fashion Trends Fall/Winter 2009 - Haute Highlands
If you've been missing plaid and wool, wait no longer, its back. Highland haute blends the masculine, structured look of heavy wool plaids, with the more feminine lines of pencil skirts and soft touches like feathers and floral brooches. Boxy jackets, high boots and bold belts and bags will make their mark on this style. Find a great velvet hat and add feathers and beads to bring the dash back to haberdashery.
When it comes to jewelry, vintage is key. Gunmetal and brass will be the hot metals, crystal pearls will be the beads of choice. Delicate is out. If it's under 12mm, don't even consider it for these designs. We want to see multi-strand chain and crystal layered in with pearls and pendants. Bring back bold crosses and anything with an allusion to feathers. Butterflies and birds will have a winter home this year!
