Miss Selfridge SS09

For some, the 80s were a nightmare. Who could forget the shoulder pads, parachute pants and fingerless gloves? Miss Selfridge Spring Summer 2009 collection takes its cue from the fashion and music scenes such as Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan of the 80s minus the shoulder pads of course.

The ever-present denim is still here to stay whether its bleached, distressed or marble washed coupled with batwing tops and rolled cap sleeves for a modern take on the 80s. Emphasis is given on shaping, giving way to a sexy silhouette through peplum details on the skirts and dresses.

The edgy look is also brought in with playsuits with stud detailing and biker jackets in bright colours to make a bold statement on any outfit. The 80s edge is seen in the tiered prom dresses with jackets or harem topped by jersey tops and batwing cardigans. Accessorize with a bold clutch and complete the look with bright colour blocked platform hues. Delicate florals and checked shirts adds a relaxed feel to the start of the vacation season.

Whether you’re looking to glam up for a party, make a statement among the crowd or opt for casual in-trend daywear, Miss Selfridge has everything for you to update your wardrobe and maybe score you some attention and turning a few heads!
