If it's not see-through, it's not couture--at least that's what you would think, looking at the Fall 2009 runways. Transparent black and white looks were popular, as almost everyone included them in their collections. Although this seems a classic direction to take, the transparency trend may also have been tipped off by Chanel's stellar Spring 2009 couture collection, which included quite a few gauzy transparent looks. Regardless, it's safe to say that black tie events everywhere are in for a seductive treat.

J.Crew is begininng to switch into fall mode--even without the inventory. Having become experts in merchandising, J.Crew is able to launch a fall message with only summery tanks and dresses occupying their New Arrivals section. The explanation: it's all about layering. Take the new Petal tank, available in three colors, add a classic year-round blazer and voilà--fall has arrived. Not only is the outfit chic but we have to commend them for their sense in marketing.
