2010 was the year of comfort. The choice jeans were secretly leggings, the outerwear was fuzzy fur and the clog – the Milk Maid shoe of choice – ruled. Behold 10 trends we couldn’t have lived without this year – and the celebrities who loved them most:
1. Faux Fur Vests
Thanks to Rachel Zoe, faux fur vests had the best year ever. Kim Kardashian and Olivia Palermo are also fans.
We love them. Conan loves them. What’s not to love about jeans that are secretly leggings? Cameron Diaz even wore them on the red carpet.
First Alexa Chung, and then the world. The unlikely clog trend swept the nation – one shoe at a time.
4. SPANX Swimwear
Swimwear. With. SPANX. Can I get an “Amen”?
2010 meant a return to your animal instincts. Whitney Port and Rachel Bilson were among the trends biggest supporters. Leopard, cheetah, tigers – oh my!
6. Military Jackets:
We salute this military-inspired trend, which was our favorite jacket of early fall. (As seen on AnnaLynne McCord, Reese Witherspoon, and more) .
7. Lace-Up Booties:
Lace-up booties – from wedges to flats and many more – were the biggest shoe trend of fall 2010.
Whether you can afford the real thing, or the Mulberry for Target diffusion line, this was the “It” bag of 2010. You can thank Alexa Chung for this one, too.
9. Skinny Cargo Pants
A celebrity favorite (beloved by Rihanna, Kim Kardashians and more), these J Brand Houlihan Skinny Cargo Pants were the hottest pant style of the year.
10. Bib Necklaces
Bib necklaces and tribal necklaces ruled this year. Just ask Olivia Palermo.
