Long time ago women wore long gloves in the summer, hats whenever they went out and patent leather only in the warm months of the year. That was yesterday. Today, all of the old rules are going or gone. Every year we see a new one broken. It was only a couple of mounths ago that satin appeared as a daytime item of dress paired with atlas handbags and accessories or other tailored fabrics.

Atlas for daytime is the newest fashion rule. This season, the high-gloss trend on everyone's hips was shining satin. Women look simply glamorous in long cream silk satin dresses, nothing can be more womanly and beautiful then atlas attire, so we should be glad that the fashion brings us such nice surprises again and again!

The easiest way to nail smoldering, somewhat sinister Western trend this season? Invest in a few iconic statement accessories - like D&G's pony-hair clutch or Delfina Delettrez's fringe and skull necklace - and match them with equally powerful pieces, like a Deadwood-sexy tuxedo skirtsuit or an earthy dress with a Navajo twist.

Laces in Gothic style, the coat-cocoon, sheepskin jackets this is not a full list of fashionable things of this season Autumn-Winter 2008/2009. Checkered fabric has to become an integral part of your clothes this season!

Podiums and fashionable magazines are full of models of checkered clothes. The checkered drawing brings up an association with a woollen plaid, the Scottish skirt or far 70-s', Now it is presented in the extremely elegant models. Besides, checkered clothes stand out against a background of dark fall and winter colours.

The combinations of black and red, and checkered with monophonic are very fashionable. However, you can combine different types of checks. But one should be brighter in colour than the other one.

In spite of the fact that this trend is on popularity peak now, you shouldn't forget about some important rules, applicable to this colouring. Do not go too far in brightness. Otherwise you risk to look like a clown, instead of the fashion admirer. It is better to choose muffled and not so bright colours, for example a classical black-and-white or brown check, grey or plam colouring as we we see in the autumn collection from House of Holland.

Style Lessons. Oliver Twist.

Short shorts, sleeveless jacket and rough leather shoes. Don't be afraid to alternate feminity with hooliganism, sometimes it is very useful.

Certainly, everybody remembers the story about a little boy who remains in cold and gloomy streets of London of the XIX-th century. We know this story from our childhood. We remember, how we got to the past just closing our eyes for a moment, we got back to a hundred years ago where people were wearing short trousers, a checkered shirt and a woolen cap, went with Oliver Twist and his friends on searches of new adventures. We have to urgently re-read Dickens this season, the history repeats again.
