The best trends of the past decade
I read in Glamour magazine’s site about this past decade’s biggest fashion trends. Here’s their list and my insight.
Skinny Jeans. Hands down, the best fashion trend of the 00s. With the right top and shoes almost anybody can look good in these jeans.
The boyfriend blazer. Much formal than a jacket, a blazer can dress up an every-day outfit, or dress down and evening look.
Statement necklaces. A college friend of mine told me I “always look so put together.” I looked down; I was wearing a tank top, jeans and flats. I raised an eyebrow, she pointed at my big necklace. Ah, looking put together is that easy.
Really high high heels. Like I mentioned in this previous post, this look is very modern, and also very very hot! Hello legs that go on for ages!
Miniskirt. Again, something else I mentioned in this previous post. If you don’t have one already you need to get one that goes up to your waist and is not too tight.
Mix n’ match prints. I never really followed this trend, so I’m quoting what glamour.com says. “Stripes with polka dots? Plaids with florals? Yes, indeed! As embellished items replaced basics, deliberately clashing patterns became the new cool-girl outfit of choice.”
Ballet flats. I loooooove them! Flats look a lot better than *rolls eyes* sneakers or flip-flops. You need, at the very least, 3 pairs: two neutrals like black and/or brown and a bright color, like red or fuchsia to make any outfit exciting.
Cocktail rings. Pretty pretty for evening; a little too much during the day.
Cargo pants. I can’t seem to pull off this trend, is just too laid-back for me, even the skinnier styles.
Shearling boots. I don’t own any, but I wish I did! Blame it on the Uggs, who started this whole trend. These boots (or booties) are perfect for the colder months, and they look really comfy.
And here’s my addition to the list: Headbands. Oh Blair Waldorf, you brought along this trend which made bad hair days a lot more bearable.
