Fall 09 Trend Report

OK soon - to - be- mommies - we have your Fall 09 Trend Report ready to go. Check out the latest trends and tips for wearing them!

Keep that baby bump looking fabulous and perfectly in style by keeping an eye out for the following trends - all available at The Swanky Stork.

Bright, fun colors were hot for spring and are still hot for fall. Forget dull colors - fall is all about bright (almost neon) colors that make a statement! The best way to follow this trend is to not put yourself in bright color from head to toe. Rather find a great color jacket that you might put on over a camel dress or black top with jeans. Or find a bright colored shirt and pair it with dark denim. And as always, you can never go wrong by adding a pop of color with a handbag or scarf or other accessory.

Printed pieces are another carry over trend into fall. Look for great printed dresses or tops and wear them proud. Look for a little less over the top prints to be hot this season - still with great color. One word of caution with this trend: Not all prints are flattering on all body types, so be sure to try on printed styles and be sure it compliments your body type. If you aren't sure, ask the sales people in the store - they are trained on the latest trends and know how to help you pick clothing that flatters your body type perfectly.

Also, as always, plaids, houndstooth, tweeds, etc. are still very hot for fall in coats, tops, skirts, scarves etc. This season look for these prints in fun colors!

The layered look was all over the runways for fall fashion week and is a GREAT trend for moms-to-be! There are so many ways to make this trend work. From a sleeveless dress over a long sleeve t-shirt with a scarf to a cozy shirt with a wrap over denim or leggings, the layered look is easy to pull off and great for transition from hot summer days to cold winter days. Look for some staple pieces for your wardrobe such as a fabulous scarf, great wrap, leggings, etc. to pull this trend off again and again!

Strong Shoulders
The newest trend to hit the runways this season is the strong shoulder trend. Think big boxy shoulders (remember shoulder pads in the 80s???). This one is probably hard for some of us to wrap our minds around, but it is EVERYWHERE! And it doesn't have to be the shoulder pad look. This trend is more about calling attention to a very delicate and sexy part of a woman's body that is often overlooked or covered up and not highlighted. This trend can be pulled off in a number of ways. It can be through a beautiful one shoulder Grecian look that really highlights the bare shoulders or through a top or dress that has more defined shoulders in the cut and style. Look for this trend to be one of the biggest of Fall 09.

Accessorizing never goes out of style. Constantly be on the lookout for a great jewelry, handbags, scarves, etc. that can add a punch of style to any outfit! The great news is you do not have to spend a fortune to follow this trend!

Fall 09 promises to be a great season! Check out The Swanky Stork today for all of these latest trends and more!
