    Default Hottest Fashion Trends of 2009

    Ok so I had to make the title slightly "E!" related. I looked back several pages and haven't found anything officially called a fashion thread. I know last year we had one right before Thermal, so lets go! What are new looks, coat colors or not? Helmets, pet peeves, preferences etc...

    I have pet peeves! Hairnets that don't partially cover a riders ears with hair covering it. Yes, I like it to a T. Or when riders just tuck the hairnet behind their ear. Sure, it's not required, nor is it necessary but that's how I like it.

    Still not digging the blingy belts, sorry. I have about 12 and I'm waiting to like them again.

    Friends in the retail business tell me the only color hunt coat that they can really sell down at the winter circuits is....tadatadatada.

    BLACK. Juniors just have to have one to feel they belong.

    Not the hard solid black, the kind with the subtle colors worked thru to soften the look and make matching a shirt more fun.

    So those past a certain age-get to the back of that closet and fish that thing out.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    Does anyone know what the new 'polo shirt' for the season is? For example, few years ago it was Joules then Big Pony and now...

    I really dislike the joules polo shirts. I think the huge 3 is hideous. It was cool the first summer, but then it got old.... at least in my mind.

    Some of them are lovely... some not so much.

    I have a couple of these and adore them:

    No 3 in sight!

    I dunno, I hear pink and glittery is big this year.

    black coats are huge but that started last year they are really big like with a pinstripe they are so classic and beautiful

    the hadfields shirts with the pretty inner collars are huge too i love them!

    also allessandro albnese (sp?) custom jackets are the it thing to get!

    ribbion belts are much less than the past few years leather is finally coming back in!

    this is what i have noticed so far this season

    I have a black coat that I use as a back up, now I feel so trendy! I never can follow trends, I really don't even try, I just buy what I can afford/actually like. Around here though, CO Hamptons and GR8's are becoming so popular, it's really weird to see anyone wearing a GPA now.

    I bought my black coat in 2006. Does this mean i'm a trend setter?

    I would probably pass out too, depending on how much I drank!

    I won't buy the ones with the "3" but I have several Joules that look very much like a regular Ralph Lauren polo except instead of the tiny polo player logo on the breast they have a small dog. I like the fabric, it has a tiny bit of stretch in it so they are very comfortable and fit well and the colors are very pretty. In general I try to avoid anything with a large noticeable logo so I really like these.

    I heard that too. I personally will have to also pass on this trend. I wear enough black to work every day, and quite frankly it gets super boring after awhile.

    All I have and ride in are GPA's. I don't care what the fad is, I will always ride in my GPA's.

    CO's just don't fit my head...... at all.

    I'm excited to wear my black coat (with dark purple pinstripes) now! I got it last year on sale because it was the only color they had in the clearance section in my size... but what do you know, looks like I am "in style" now.
