Fool Proof Style Guide
Fall/Winter 2009

Watch out boys, the tough girls are back in town, and they’re coming with attitude! Expect to see a smooth blend of power, sex, femininity and romance this coming season. The sharp 80’s and, sophisticated 40’s have made a statement we cannot ignore… Hello Femme Fatale!

Fall/Winter 2009 Fashion Trends

Fashions this season were seized from the closets of bombshell secretaries, and stunning Greek goddesses. We also spotted a newly refined biker chick strutting her stuff. She kept her dark and shiny color palette but has gone from chaotic and scary to sleek and architectural. Overall the “look” is prim, but not proper… as well as tidy yet out of control!

Keep the above themes in mind when shopping and try to re-create them with the options below. Fashion reports can seem like calculus sometimes so we did the “math” for you and paired-up bodies that work beautifully together. “Happy trails to you until we meet again…”
