Men's VIP List
Both Women's & Men's VIP List
December 21st marks the first official day of Winter and if you haven’t already, it’s more than time to invest in classic outerwear! And there’s NOTHING more ethereally classic than a jacket or blazer from renowned brand, SMYTHE. I don’t know about you, but I try very hard to pick pieces for my wardrobe that can easily transition through the seasons; you just can’t go wrong with a SMYTHE! The quality is astounding and you will be sure to have a SMYTHE for years and years to come. These blazers go from the office to cocktails to the grocery store, to class and beyond!
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!
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.
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.
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!
Thanks to Nicole B. for the graphics!
Hot off the press, Kate Middleton & Prince William have released their engagement photo's. Always a fan of Kate Middleton's style, I figured what better time than to do a "Get Her Look" blog, especially since she seems to be stepping up her game lately.
For her engagement photo session, Kate chose to wear an appropriate white dress. I love the three quarter length sleeves dresses, it add a bit of sophistication.
It’s time to pull out all of the stops this fall and pull out that leather jacket that may be resting in the back of your closet. If not, it’s an even better time to invest in one. Leather jackets are all the rave this season and we are seeing celebrities, A to Z, loving them some leather J, Jacket that is.
