And sometimes I get all wrapped up in the excitement when I find something that I've loved all season that's finally been marked down. But the key here is will I still want this next year? Or even next season!?!
So I keep checking on the latest fall 2009 and spring 2010 trends to see if any new things I find on sale may actually have a life into the next season!
Fall 2009 keeps a muted color palette, mixing neutrals and washed out colors with a few pops of bright neons. Denim is skinny skinny (so skinny that Top Shop had invented a new word: Jeggings (Jeans +Leggings)!! Leggings are in too. Cardigans are long and loose, worn with both dressy and casual. Belts are huge.
Spring 2010 -- it's all about over the top --- it's designers way of saying enough already with this recession. Fabrics are unique and textured, tons of embellishments - beading, sequins etc. Colors are brighter, but neutrals still work as a nice base. More patterns and black. Lots of drapy fabric. Jump suits are still in.
Good luck with any sale shopping!!
