Fall/Winter 09-10 brought a lot of attention to the fashion world; primarily, the legs. Hemlines were shortened so much that it was appropriate to enter the public eye being seen in something no longer than the length of a shirt. Styled with over the knee (OTK) boots, a statement bib necklace, and an eighties-inspired jacket, this style seemed to be popping up everywhere. This style, just like the Roman Empire, would eventually fall, and with the help of Anna Wintour, hemlines fell just in time for Fall 2010. This upcoming season's style is only optimizing the opposite of what last season branded as a fashion "standard." Hemlines are as close to the knee as possible (if not past the knee itself), and the fit matches its hemline counterpart; very flattering without being too tight or too baggy. One of my favorites for this upcoming season was this grey lace pleated Valentino dress; the lace and abdominal pleating really makes this dress a sexy option while trying for the longer length. Another favorite of mine was this black cap-sleeved Alexander McQueen dress, because its ruched hip adds some spice to the beholder's figure, and the cap sleeves only adds to the dress's drama. Remember to always incorporate and mind your age while trying out this trend: in order to retain a youthful look, opt for a hemline slightly above the knee. Also, add accessories such as belts, statement necklaces, and cuffs.
