Shoulder pads

Let's hope you haven't thrown these staples from the 1980s away because they're back with a vengeance.


They've been a hit with the ladies, so men are getting back in on the act.

Super flares

Denim's most-wanted shape for 2009. Siwy is the brand to watch out for.

Thin heels

Obviously high heels weren't enough, so designers had to make this year's styles extra thin for, you know, balance.


Strappy sandals

Flats or sky high, whatever you have, put them away.

The fringe

It may be all over clothes for spring, but as a hairstyle it's decidedly passe.

Harem shorts

How can we love these when we only just accepted harem trousers?

Bra tops

One brand is even insisting that these are what women really want to wear. Hmm.
