City Pulse

By Deena Campbell

Make lots of room in your closet this season – feathers are taking over and flying with style. Anna Sui was one of the many designers who added touches of feathers to her collection, balancing romantic florals and brightly colored legwear.

Wide Leg
If you’re tired of skinny jeans, fall 09 is the perfect season for a welcomed change. The Oscar de la Renta and Ossie Clark collections added hints of flare with satin wide leg pants and jumpsuits. Pair with fitted belted cropped jackets, and satin ruffled tops for sophisticated bliss.

Shorts – Hot Pants
Hot pants don’t exactly scream the “go anywhere” look, but this fall, Giles Deacon and Phillip Lim have managed to dispel those myths. Hot shorts and pants for fall are paired with colorful tights and leggings, offering a combination of naughty sassiness. If you’re really daring, rock your tiny shorts with thigh high boots.

Michael Kors set our hearts on fire with bold lime colored dresses, while Marc Jacobs opted for wallpaper inspired tights. And who could forget Malandrino’s hot pink skirts?

Sass & Bide designers Sarah Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton have always been a tad unconventional, but this season they rocked the house with rock ‘n’ roll inspired pieces with touches of ruffles for added femininity. Included in the mix of ruffled lovers are Tracy Reese as she showcased ruffled short-sleeve sweaters, and Douglas Hannant’s ruffled Poiret collar blouses.
