Fashion Trends For 2010

Before another year starts, fashion experts and designers always present us with what they think will be the new trends for the coming year. Some designs are made for a particular season while some are made to be fashionable throughout the year. Some even stay fashionable within the next couple of years. Here are some of the trends that are presented as the "in" thing this year.

The year 2010 is said to be outrageous in terms of clothing as extreme colors and prints are in fashion. Animal prints such as leopard dots are the main eye catchers. Metallic colors like gold and silver are also in fashion. To neutralize the flashy appearance of the prints, neutral colors such as beige and gray are also definite hit for items such as coats and blazers. See-through top may also be thought out as the season becomes hotter.

Meanwhile, some old designs for shorts and pants are back. Items such as hot pants and jumpsuits are back in fashion. They are best paired with long socks or stockings up to or above the knee. For those who do not prefer to wear the shorts yet still want to show some skin, long skirts and dresses with high splits can keep you look sexy. The split can even be higher than shorts to reveal more skin yet hide more at the same time. Just like with the top, the pants can either have prints and patterns or just come in plain color. Aside from animal prints, abstract, floral and other strong prints brighten up the usually boring color of pants. Ruffles and feathers on skirts and shorts are also in fashion and are paired with neutral-colored tops as complement. Another old-school style that is back is torn and ripped jeans. Patched jeans are also one way to go if desired. The theme of rock-and-roll is something that never gets old.

As for the footwear, neutral tones are mostly worn to complement the catchy prints of the top or the pants. Flats, clogs, wedges and new Oxford shoes are in season.

Women's fashion accessories such as the earrings also sport the animal prints. For those who feel uncomfortable wearing large prints of leopard dots on their clothes, the earrings are perfect for you to stay in fashion. Talk about animalistic fashion for this year. Large hair accessories are also coming back in fashion. Rock-and-roll and urban accessories are also bought after. Bracelets, studs, rings and chain necklaces can be used to accessorize the torn pants and printed top. As also noted, tall socks and torn stockings can be worn with the hot pants and jumpsuit.

This year's fashion trend for women is feminine yet edgy, a mixture of extreme prints and plain, neutral colors. As the year progresses and seasons change, more fashion trends will certainly emerge so stay updated. You should also remember that even if some items in your wardrobe are out of fashion, they should be kept for the future. Who knows when they might be back in fashion again?
