Tights Fall

The tights/legging trend is continuing its full-on popularity this fall as the masses have finally lost their fear of having fabulously coloured, decorative stems.

Most people CAN'T get away with all this color

On the runways for Fall 2009 (and in the nearest forever 21 near you), embellished tights are all the rage in tartan, lace, stripes and dots; stylized with legwarmers and chunky socks; and comfortably worn with shoes or boots.

Chilly Summer?

Remember seeing the socks with heels trend in magazines about two years ago? (could've been my Italian Vogues...) And then the look showed up on runways for SS08 (shown here Anna Sui) and continued into SS09 (shown here Burberry).

Well, gals in T.O. are finally picking it up and I kinda like it - not only do decorative ankle socks keep your feet warm during these chilly summer nights, it's cute and super easy to pull off (the fishnets are questionable)!

9 Spring Shoes

One of the greatest things about Spring and longer sunny days is the burst of color indoors and out! And shoe stores this Spring 2009 are no exception.

In a twist of trends, shoes for sale are every color of the rainbow, in patterns and stripes; animal skins and suedes. There are fringes, gaudy beads and baubles and tons of decorative details. Of course the gladiator sandal and strappy heels reign for the masses this year, but now black is boring as sandals are multi-colored. A new look for Toronto is the 'bootie shoe', which was HUGE in Europe last year and likely your best investment this year as it'll work next as well!
