Asian fashion trends

Asian fashion trends and styles for 2009 focus on an eclectic mix, ranging from the short pleated skirt worn with colour matching button- though cardigan to the knee length chiffon belted dress. Dresses with gathered bodice seams are also part of the look. Chiffon and frills feature strongly as part of a very feminine style, while wide and soft suede belts accompany simply styled check turtle neck dresses. Dark blue and black are popular colours, with delicate pastel shades coming through, such as soft sage, cream and bolder reds and greens.

Cancan dresses accentuate the frilled and layered look, with v-neck and fitted bodice, flaring out to above the knee in a froth of delicately patterned fabric. This is a baby doll look, designed to keep the curves hidden, and looks amazing with heels. For a professional look, a more formal dress in navy is the laced frill front dress, in a classic A-line to the knee, long chiffon buttoned sleeves and frills to the waist with narrow belt and simple buckle to create an efficient and businesslike image.

Skirts range from short and lacy to mid-calf length and serious. The simple and classic A-line skirt is a huge feature in 2009 fashion trends, with variations such as narrow belts, 2 tone zips to the front and pleats to the hips. Dainty pleated mini skirts in creams are available with built in pants, and there are many variations on the tiered gauze skirt to the knee in navy or black. Worn with heeled and studded calf length cowboy boots this looks striking. The calf length H-line skirt is softened with a wide lace sash belt. Skirt or pants suits are striking in metallic fabrics with hugging knee length pencil skirt or straight leg pants. The single buttoned jacket with flap pockets is worn over a white blouse shirt, and strappy black heels finish the look.

Blouses are extremely feminine, often featuring large pussy cat bows to the neck. Hip length wrap over blouses in black, pastel greens or white accompany gathered polyester/rayon skirts with bold prints. Puffed sleeves are both long and elbow length, adding to the dainty style, and pin tucks add shape to the bodice. Pulled in waistlines are important in creating the feminine outline that is popular this season.

Boots are slouched and to the knee, with thin high heels and toes coming to a point. Fur trimmed edging and snake skin style texturing are the trend, with colours ranging from acid yellows and golden orange to denim blue, black, brown and earth tones. Casual high top boots have a flat sole for every day wear and studs, straps and buckles are used as decoration for knee boots. Pumps have a metallic finish with buckles or bows to the front, a low heel and open toe. Dominant colours are red or silver as well as black.

Jeans are extremely skinny and worn with high heels and pointed toes, or the boot cut jean is worn with brightly coloured baseball boots and J Lindeberg shirts for a stunnign casual look
