Trends for Fall ’09: Graphic
Darlings, are you bored with the same old one-color or starkly color-blocked looks? Not to worry; bold prints, patterns and overlays are back in a big, big way.
We’re being a little snippy, of course. Like most trends, they never really went away. It’s just that lately, everyone’s been doing the graphic look and once everyone starts doing it, the stakes get higher and the prints get bolder. Let’s fail to do them justice by offering short, snappy, bloggy assessments, shall we?
