Dorothy Perkins AW09

There’s a lot to celebrate this month because our national Independence Day is coming dudettes, and it so happens that Dorothy Perkins’ latest AW 09 collection is the perfect place to look for Merdeka worthy outfit. JUICE says we all should rock our national colours this month of August!

As JUICE has forecasted before, the 80s are really hitting us hard with its presence the next few months and Dorothy Perkins have proved so with their power dresses which are inspired by *ahem* the 80s (see we told you). It’s time to make a statement on the 31st, with exaggerated shoulders and lots of embellishments. Here are some of JUICE picks that screams out national pride.

Like we’ve stressed before, colour isn’t for everyone (me included), Dorothy Perkins AW09 has a range of other beautiful cocktail dresses for you to celebrate in. Pile on the greys, glitter and gathers!

Dorothy Perkins AW09 also sees inspiration in power suits and jackets made from leather and punk inspired studs and for the ‘Material Girl’ look (hello, Madonna), oversized jackets with padded shoulders can be worn with leggings.

Key pieces for Autumn/Winter are acid wash denim, supple leather, opulent velvet and lashings of embellishment. Remember, the bigger the shoulders the better! As Dorothy Perkins explains, “Decadent embellishment, angular padding and studding on the shoulders re-create the glamorous, exuberant feel of the 80s. Trophy jackets are a wardrobe essential – the black on black embellished shoulder jacket creates a ‘Courtesan’ look when teamed with a de-constructed corset, full skirt and flat understated boots.” Here we leave you with some of the best looks to inspire you from Dorothy Perkins Autumn/Winter 09 Collection. Ferosh!

Dorothy Perkins can be found at One Utama, Sunway Pyramid, and Midvalley Megamall.
