Trends to Try for the Upcoming Winter Season

Winter BluesThere are many people who are willing to look fashionable but are sometimes at a loss as to how to do this. For instance, most people often have a very difficult time figuring out what kind of clothes to wear during winter. For most, the fact that it’s very cold makes them go for functionality rather than form when shopping for winter clothes. This means that they sacrifice fashion just to be comfortable.

However, the fact of the matter is that you can get the best of both worlds if you are interested in it. There are a few fashion trends that are poised to be very popular during the winter and which still remain fashionable. Some of these include: (more…)

There are, of course, some things you’ll have to drop your hard-earned cash for like a leather jacket, perhaps. However, here are a few items you can get value out of even as the weather changes.  (more…)

Manicure Inspiration: Passion for Plaid

Blouse

Our lovely model, Katrina, was sporting amazing plaid nails for one of our mailers that was for, well, the obvious…plaid. I feel like plaid is one of those prints that will never really go out of style, and there's just something about it that makes me feel all cozy inside. Maybe because it makes me think of cold weather and sitting by a fire? Who knows. Anyway, here are a few of my favorite plaid pieces. (more…)

Top 10 Trends of 2010!

We saw new styles emerge and throw backs make come backs! With the year coming to a close, Singer22 is taking a look back at the 10 hottest trends that we saw 2010…

1. Fur Coats and Vests
Nothing says “Old Hollywood Glam” like a fur coat. We saw stars like Kortney Kardashian dolled up in the Funktional Predator Coat in Animal to stay warm and stylish in the cooler months. Taking a note from the 70’s, fur vests popped up again! Singer22 loves the ELS Raccoon Fur Vest in Brown that we saw ladies wearing year round.

2. Leather Jackets
One of the biggest trends of the year was leather. Stylists gave this rocker fabric a feminine twist in their collections and shoppers ate it up! The Smythe Moto Leather Jacket is an absolute must have. This is a style that will last and last and can be worn from 2010 to 3010!

3. Lace
Lace showed up on almost every red carpet this season. Whether it was slight, chic detail on a dress, lace on shoes or a complete lace ensemble, it was there. Like its leather counterpart, when worn correctly, lace is timeless.

4. Plaid
Plaid was worn big time this year. Both men and women were dressing up in this dressed down fabric and making it look oh, so good! The Rails Kendra Original Plaid Button Down, Stephanie Pratt wears it in Red/White, is a far cry from your father’s plaid shirts but is still incredibly comfortable. I’m sure we’ll see this trend rolling over into 2011.

5. Jeggings

Move over Skinny Jeans, 2010 brought a new jean to town! Jeggings literally took over the legs of stars and everyday shoppers alike. One of our favorite designers of 2010, Michelle Siwy, has her amazing Siwy Hannah Jegging Jean in Coquette that can be paired with boots, booties, flats or heels to provide a perfectly polished look to any outfit.

6. Leather Leggings

Another leather accessory that was huge in 2010 was leather leggings. Not for the faint of heart, these super sexy leggings added a huge dose of glam to outfits traditionally paired with black, cotton leggings. Stars everywhere were seen donning the Current/Elliot Pull Up Leather Legging to show off their sexy side.

7. Distressed Tees

Distressed denim wasn’t seen as much in 2010. Distressed tees on the other hand, made their mark. At first we questioned buying shirts with rips and holes in them but once we found out how comfortable they were, we understood. Stars like Lauren Conrad and Gwyneth Paltrow showed their love for LA in The Chaser LA City of Angels Tee, 2010’s distressed tee of the year!

8. Boots and Booties

Many trends come and go but a hot pair of boots is forever! 2010 saw knee high boots, like the House of Harlow 1960 Lainey Suede Calf Boot, making their sexy mark as well as flat, mid-calf height boots for daily wear. Booties were also huge this year in their own adorable way. Booties like the Rosegold Genie Lace Up mixed tough and chic for an accessory that was worn day and night in 2010.

9. Boho Jewelry

Who doesn’t love a little bling? 2010 introduced us to so many amazing jewelry designers. Even though Nicole Richie launched House of Harlow 1960 in 2008 her boho jewelry line was seen everywhere in 2010. From bangles to rings and necklaces to cuffs, House of Harlow 1960 provides women with hippie chic pieces that transfer well from season to season.

10. Mini Dresses

2010 was the year of the legs! Starlets showed of their mile high gams in itty-bitty dresses all year long. Even when the temps started to drop the legs kept making their cameo.  Tunic dresses like the Parker Stripe Bead Tunic were seen in summer for their beach friendly cut and in winter for all the sparkle and shine a girl needs.

We’ve seen some truly great trends from 2010! Singer22 is already getting in resort wear for 2011 and if it’s any sign of things to come, we’re in for another very fashionable year!
