The Limited Holiday Preview 2009

I recently got a preview of The Limited’s holiday collection and found the looks to be modern and versatile for day to night. I absolutely loved the color palette including vibrant red, dark raspberry, dark teal, neon yellow, bright magenta and ballgown blue, easily mixed amongst black and grey, the black and white print dresses and the ruffle and rose details that add a touch of femininity.

A big holiday focus for The Limited is the re-launch of the iconic forenza sweater. These shaker stitch knit sweaters are similar to the 80s original style but updated in a variety of colors and available in the traditional cowl, topper style for a cardigan option and the infinity scarf.

Here are some of the holiday trends that I have added to my must-have list:

- soft-collared pea coat
- cowl-neck sweater – one of my favorite winter silhouettes
- fur
- tweed trouser
- black and white tuxedo separates – especially the white tuxedo jacket
- toggle coat
- asymmetrical or halter style blouses and dresses
- pleated strapless tops and dresses for a sexy evening look
- infinity scarf - adds more volume and warmth in accessorizing your look.
- the obi belt – fits any size waist and can be worn with a dress or longer length top, forenza sweater
- color legwear - livens up that black or grey dress or skirt
- bold jeweled cuffs and multi-layered necklaces
- jeweled belt
- leather clutch with metal studs and ruffled rose design
- clutch with ruffle zipper detail

The Limited carries sizes XS and 0, the perfect fit for petite women, so you bet I’ll be shopping for these must-have items when they pop up in The Limited stores this October.
