Here are my top 5 awesome style trends from 2010:
1. Lacy Luxury
While some designers decided to make underware outerware (thank heaven THAT trend didn't stick), we still have added a heavy amount of lace and sheer fabric to our closets. A chic lace skirt paired with a dress shirt, or a sheer top with some jeans for a night out give us some options that are both chic and classy!

With subtle olive and khaki tones, military-inspired pieces have become a necessity in any closet. Cargo pants, jackets and shirts offer both style and versatility, while offering a nice change up to jeans.

3. Like a red rag to a bull...
Remember True Romance? That speaks to the overarching color of 2010: Red. Whether it was on your lips, your nails or your dress, this color was red-hot on the runway, at all the award shows, and on the streets. This trend will continue through the winter and into spring, adding a pop of color to any outfit.

One of my favorites, animal print was BIG for 2010. Dressed down with denim, or up with silk or velvet, many new designers jumped at the opportunity to feature primal prints. A must have for any chic closet!

5. Flower Power
Florals look great on pretty much everyone, and I cannot wait for this trend to hit center stage once again this spring. Look for them not only in blouses and tanks, but also in headbands and jewelry to add the perfect amount of whimsical fantasy to your outfit.
