Fashion Spotlight: 2010

By 11:41 AM , , , , ,

Cannot believe 2010 is nearing an end, feels like just a month ago I was in the city NYE nervously counting down as I knew 2010 would not be fun academically but looking back its been a pretty good year; had one of the best summer holidays including a beach getaway, an amazing one month holiday in Sri Lanka and all of that academic work paid off because I got into honours. But enough about me, let's take a look back at some of the biggest fashion trends of 2010.

Denim never really goes out of style and is usually a staple but there was definitely more of a spotlight on it in 2010, and to the shock (and horror to some I'm sure) of many double denim came back.

Another blast from the past was leather. There was the more common leather (or pleather) jackets and for those more adventurous leather pants, shorts, skirts and dresses.

Maxi Skirt
Kind of a follow on from last year's maxi dress (I say last year but it was definitely being rocked in 2010 as well). The best thing about the maxi skirt is that you could transform your maxi dress into one by simply throwing on a tee.

Modern Military
This was quite a popular trend in 2010, probably because it was pretty easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe. You could either play it safe by just playing around with khaki or get a little experimental with embellishments.

No Pants
We can thank Lady Gaga for this trend, luckily it seems to restricted to those of celebrity status- although you never know what 2011 may bring!

Happy New Year lovelies!
