   Have you ever been in one of those situations where you can't decide if that guy at the bar has the good looks of a girl or that girl  at the bar has the sharp masculine features of a man, but either way he/she is really hot.  Well that confused feeling is nothing to worry about now, because it seems to be a trend. Bowie really holds I told you soo rights on this one. After all, women and men have been confused by him for quiet some time now. He pulls off the makeup so well. Agyness Dean even seems to be taking some cues from him. She totally resembles 1980's David Bowie. However if your not brave enough to chop off all your hair and start getting mistaken as a guy for fashion's sake maybe it's easier to go route of dressing the part. Rag & Bone's Spring 2009 collection has great suits that will make you resemble some very fashionable men. Coco Rocha's blue suit practically makes her Mark Ronson's twin while still maintaining her supermodel femininity. This means more clothing options for everyone .... maybe even some more men in skirts.

So according to Style.com Harlequin Patterns are in. I can't say that I have anything remotely close to harlequin patterns in my closet. Lots of flower patterns, some paisley an animal print here or there, but nothing that would make me resemble a mime or one of the characters from Alice in Wonderland. However there is one small little bit of this trend that I am totally excited about 2 tone tights. I saw a girl wearing them last winter (she made them herself by cutting off the one leg of two different colour tights, cool idea but I feel like bathroom visits might get a little tricky.) This girl definitely has I told you soo rights because these two toned tights are everywhere.  Chanel has an amazing pair but, if you can spend hundreds of dollars on your tights because you will probably rip them you can get a similar look from AA for way less. There are also some pretty cool harlequin inspired accessories out there. The key though is not going over the top or you will look like a drama camp kid but, older and sadder.

First it was black then navy and trust me the new nail colour this fall will be grey. It's seriously hard to find, even finding images of people wearing this colour was difficult, but just trust me it's in. NYT just published an article on the importance of nails apparently the feet and hands are now just as important as the face.  I definitely saw some grey nails in the slide show that goes along with this article. So if you can't find any grey nail polish but are dying to wear it before everyone else so you can tell them "I told you so". There are a couple options. 

1. Frantically search it out on E-bay you can seriously buy anything on E-Bay.

2. Why not put your old black nail polish to good use mix it with some white and voila instant grey.

3. Use a grey paint marker. Sounds weird yes but it will totally work and it's way easier to apply than normal nail polish.

I've never got those people who go sock-less in the middle of winter in order to wear their favourite pair of pumps. I'm a huge advocate of socks with pumps. It's so hot, figuratively and literally (No more frost bite!). And it gives you a chance to put those weird socks you've got for years from your great aunt to use. If I can't tell you so, let Scott Schuman do it. He spotted all these ladies looking great in their socks at NY Fashion Week.

Disney has really always been on the ball when it comes to trends. Look at Lindsay they knew she would be big ever since the parent trap days. Since most of my child hood was spent watching the great Disney movies not any of the weird ones that come out now-a-days (who and what are Lilo & Stitch), I feel like the movies have influenced my look. That mickey mouse ear look was definitely a mistake however. I'm so happy that Marc finally caught on to this hidden style maven and is telling everyone soo in his Spring 2009 collection. It's soo Mary Poppins. So get ready to wear lots of crazy floor length dresses, great crazy and hats and sweep the odd chimney or two.
