2010 TREND WRAP-UP: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES


Ladies and gents, sadly, 2010 is coming to a close. It was a helluva year, so you know what that means: it’s time to celebrate! Get out those glittery dresses and party bullhorns and plow through the sludge-laden streets of insert-your-city-here ’cause dagnabbit, this day comes but only once a year and as we can all vouch, when pretty much anything goes.

In many ways, the past year has been a bit rough; Haiti certainly didn’t get dealt a good hand, to put it lightly, and there have been so many natural disasters to occur that all the Al Gore haters out there are definitely thinking twice. So, in light of the fast approaching New Year and starting afresh, we’d like to point out a few of 2010‘s most notable fashion highlights, because the rapid-paced fashion world stops for no one, and it’s only a matter of time before they too are forgotten:


Doc Martens
The news of the Doc Marten revival was happy news for us all. Available in an endless array of hues and prints, we love that we can rely on our trusty Doc Marten lace-ups for all-day comfort and style. (Have you seen the just released Victorian Flowers boot from their A/W 2010 collection?)


Jeggings
The fact that they exist, that moms everywhere know what they are and are dying to know where to score a pair, is pretty remarkable in and of itself.


Oxford Shoes
The manic menswear trend of 2009 bled well into 2010 and women’s footwear much to the delight of shoe enthusiasts far and wide. We appreciate trends that can be pulled off by most anyone and this is certainly one of those trends.


Shearling
Warm and cozy, not to mention comfortable, we welcomed shearling back with outstretched arms. We remember you when you were hot in the 90’s and we’re glad your glory day has once again arisen. Shearling, you can line our coats, booties, and mittens any day.


Turbans
They may have received a mixed reception at first, but the ‘high-drama’ accessory (introduced by Prada in 2007) has finally found a place in the hearts (and domes) of celebrities and non-celebrities alike.


Embellished Press-on Nails
Remember that time you didn’t have a half hour to spend on yourself at the salon so you took a little ‘shortcut’ instead? We do too. Press-on nails have officially become socially acceptable, and why shouldn’t they be? Check out this handmade set by Tana Nail, ‘Starry Sky.’
