Third key look for Fall Winter Fashion 2009 & 2010 is Iron Maiden, which is a mix with classy goth, 80's, bold and diva'ish elements.

Think studs, black, chain and leather! Perfect for the rough and tough fashionista ;-)

Let's take a quick look at the essentials for Iron Maiden:

5 star Colors: Black, grey, silver.

5 star Details: Layers of chain, zippers, studs, skinny pants, leather, black hosiery, sparkly vests and tops, bold and fun jewelry.

Black, Black and More Black

There's no limit to how black your outfit can get. Mix black jeans, black t-shirt, black cardigan, black flats in one outfit. More is more!

How to Wear It:

Go black from top to toe but make it more interesting with accessories and different cuts. Like for example instead of ballerina flats, try platform gladiator sandals. Embellish your outfit with jewelry. Also mix various materials in one, like black silk or leather.

Ripped Tights

This super-cool and edgy trend started earlier last summer and is continuing to rock the fashion world throughout the next season.

How to Wear Them:

You can make one yourself by buying a pair of black opaque or sheer tights. I like the sheer look because it's more feminine and sexy. Use scissors to make holes in the garment and then rip and pull it with your hands. Avoid making those holes too big.

Wear the tights beneath a pair of shorts or a short dress. Make sure that the holes peek out from under the clothing! They're awesome for adding an unexpected twist without looking "too much".

Striped Tights

Along with lace patterns, stripes are also a great detail to add if you want to go bold this season. Now I'm not talking about the high contrast, red on white striped clown-looking tights. But the sexy black stripes on black tights.

How to Wear Them:

Wear it with a simple and solid-colored outfit to avoid messing up the look. Avoid horizontal stripes as they can make your legs stubby.

Studded Shoes and Boots

Continuing from last season, studs have been seen all over the catwalk. In fact, I think there will be another stud-mania round-up for fall winter 2009-10.


How to Wear Them:

Studs on shoes look particularly bold and sexy and should be worn in small doses. Wear it in one place and keep it there. Have in mind that studs can add pounds to your legs and ankles, but you can easily turn it around by choosing shoes with vertical details, like zippers and vertical stripes.

If you have short legs or figure, and decide to wear them with pants, make sure the color of the shoes match the color of the hosiery or pants you're wearing.

Chain Jewelry

Multiple layers of chain is one of the hottest items for fall/winter 2009-10. They're so hot that they've landed on boots and shoes as well!

How to Wear It:

Wear it as a long necklace on top of a solid-colored black dress or top. For an unusual yet trendy mix, add the chains with pearls, charms or/and gorgeous beads.

If you decide to wear it as a necklace make sure you choose the right metal colors for your complexion to give your face a healthy glow. Like for example, gold looks best on those with warm skin tone, and silver suits cool-colored women best. Click here to take the gold or silver color test.

Zippers

Oh yeah, you'll be seeing zippers on jeans, pants, skirts, sandals, dresses and tops!

How to Wear Them:

If you have short legs, short figure or short torso, wear vertical zippers to keep the area looking lean and trim.

I personally like offsetting the punk chick look with something feminine and sexy. Like if you're wearing a black mini dress with a zipper on the front, add a pair of snazzy platform gladiator shoes and a big and sparkly cocktail ring.

Animal Cocktail Rings

Animal cocktail rings are one of fall and winter 2009-10's top picks for any full-blown Fashionista. From sexy leopard, slithering snakes to stunning fox, they're definitely going to add a fun and bold vibe to your outfit.

How to Wear Them:

Wear the ring as your outfit's main key piece and leave out other fancy accessories and print clothing. If you decide to wear other jewelry, stick to plain studs and chain bracelets.


Back to Top


Sequin Vest

You're going to fall in love with the stunning sequin vests. They add a sparkly and trendy touch to your outfit.

How to Wear It:

Wear it casually with a tank top and jeans, or go the glamorous way with a black mini dress.
