Follow fashion into the next decade
The decision ends with you and me because automatically we are the ones who choose to buy the fashion and wear them.

So what fall 2010 fashion trends suit (fit) you best?
One of this season’s hot fabrics is velvet. Find this thick, soft material made into everything from scarves to pants and jackets. Not only will it look and feel luxurious /lʌɡˈʒʊəriəs/, velvet will also keep you warm. Pair your favorite velvet piece with another current fashion trend – wide-leg pants. Go ahead and put away those skinny jeans from years past and make room for this new trend. Known for their comfort, wide-leg pants can be worn in both casual and formal settings.
Patterns will also play a role in fashion this fall, as clothes will be covered in creative graphics. Whether displaying urban graffiti or colorful patchwork, these clothes are sure to be a hit.
Finally, buy clothes in this fall’s most popular color: deep red. This rich, warm color flatters (compliment/ to make somebody seem more attractive) most skin tones and is easily paired with a variety of colors. Prefer a more classic look? Black is always in style.
Consider your taste and style, and enjoy all that fashion has to offer this fall!

[Ashley & Ken]
K: You know, my friend Dennis is getting married.
A: Oh, really. When is the wedding?
K: Uh, it’s this weekend. And I want to go out in style.
A: How about a nice suit?
K: Well, I always wear the same old suit. I’d buy a new one, but lately I have been spending money like…like…um
A: …like it’s going out of style?
K: No, money doesn’t go out of style.
A: But you can spend money like it’s going out of style. That means you have been doing it excessively.
K: Well, in that case I have been spending money like it’s going out of style.
A: You can also do other things like 「they are going out of style」. For instance, you may eat somewhere like it’s going out of style.
K: Hmm. Where does this phrase come from?
A: Well, when something is going out of style. Then it will be gone soon. So the phrase suggests doing something with urgency.
K: Okay. So if I suddenly have an interesting in photography and carry a camera with me everywhere, I might be taking pictures like they are going out of style?
A: Exactly. Now here is another idiom for you. If you get the most expensive camera you can find with all the best equipment, then you might be a person who does things in style.
K: I do. I want to do things the best way.
A: If you do something in style, you do it especially well. You wouldn’t just have a simple dinner for guests. You treat them with all the best drinks and food.
K: I do it in style. And speaking of that, I still need to find a good suit for the wedding.
A: Well, I’m sure you’ll go out in style.
K: As long as I’m not out of style.
in style就是正在流行、時髦的，相反地就是out of style（不再流行、過時的）。英文有句話說spend money like it’s going out of style（花錢花得好像錢將要退流行一樣），意思就是花錢如流水、大手筆的花錢。其實你可以把這句話用在不同的地方，如果你突然喜歡攝影，一天到晚拿著一個像機不停地拍照，你就是take pictures like they’re going out of style。另外do it in style是指採用最好的、最頂級的。
