Rounded Lines Spring Summer 09

Spring summer 09 looks set to be all about rounded lines, from slightly curved shoulder lines to the more exaggerated and dramatic incorporation of circles and semi circles into the shape of the clothes. This is a development on this seasons full and rounded shapes that were seen in the tulip style skirts and rounded shoulders.

Again at Chloe, circles were used to create an interesting line along the shoulders and arms. This time the circles were a lot smaller giving a more delicate look.

You can use this trend as an inspiration to create your own look using rounded lines. Look for prints made of geometric circles and large spots, jewellery in circle or semi circle shapes, accessories with rounded shapes and clothes with rounded shoulder or skirt shapes.

Well spotted (if you will excuse the pun) I like your suggestion for using the designer led trends as inspiration for your own style or outfit

Hmmm, circles. I wonder if the current economic times has anything to do with this choice of geometric pattern - if it does, I have no idea what it could mean, but it's an interesting look!

Thank you for the post and Happy New Year!
