Back to the 80s

Posted by: Phat Mama, 27-Aug-2009

Exaggerated shoulders, slim-line silhouettes and desirable accessories Ė these are the three main things to bear in mind when you are dressing up in a Dorothy Perkins Autumn Winter 2009 Collection.

This seasonís collection although inspired by the 80s still has a very modern edge to it.

Remember those oversized knits that we just adore in the 80s? Well, Dorothy Perkins has revived the look, this time matching the knits, worn off the shoulder, with patterned leggings that are all the rage this year.

DPís key fabrics for this season include acid wash denim, buttery leather and opulent velvet. If you are a bit of a dare devil, DPís deep purples and glamorous gold selections will keep your mood going all day. Grey and black are essential colours in every designerís list but how about pink and cobalt? Well, DP has them all.

But what would complete an already stunning ensemble? Accessories, of course, and DP goes all out this season with its statement heels, cute ankle boots, chunky biker boots and oversized clutches and slouchy bags.

DP Collection is all about luxurious fabrics, intricate detailing and on-trend designs.

For the next few days I will feature several more selections from Dorothy Perkins and how to mix and match the items from the collection for some fun fashion ideas.
