Yup, it’s that time again when the apple drops, another year has passed and a whole new line of fashion moves us forward into the future. When it comes to clothes, think glamorous 1950’s starlet. Fitted, lady like pieces with lots of soft layering. Scarlett Johanssen is a perfect example of a curvy girl who dresses to impress. Make sure to pick something pretty that is heavy on prints – plaid, animal, crests and bad girl skulls are a few of the patterns we have to choose from in the New Year. Also, lady-like lace embellishments. Benhaz’s go international collection at target has some fun and frilly pieces adorned with lace perfect for the new year. Not that we’ve got the top figured out lets address your bottom and everyone wants their bottom to look banging. The new year will ring in a slew of jeans that are much wider at the foot. The pendulum is swinging back toward wide-leg bellish bottoms. Justin Timberlake’s line William Rast has a fab pair of ‘belle’ stretch jeans. Whether its boot cut or skinny, I am a true blue fan of the 7 for all makind line and feel every woman will find something she likes from their collection. Leggings are also sticking around and look sassy when paired with oversized tops and cinch-waist belts. Accessories are your cherries on top and this year is no exception when it comes to pieces that make bold statements. Lots of Black and gold popping up in handbags and jewelry. Oversized gold pieces for your neck, wrists and fingers. Cleopatra has got nothing on you. Keeping with the oversized theme, your bag should be BIG for daytime. Buti’s large handheld bag is one of my faves. Large slouch/hobo bags with rich fabrics like heavy leather, suede and wool. When it comes to night-time make sure you have a fun wristlet that fits all of your necessary accouterments but still looks fun and flirty. Something we are seeing a lot of this year is gloves. Yummy, buttery leather of all lengths worn outside or in for a chic finish to any frock. Yup, Gloves are back big time! And finally we finish it off at the feet. Nothing says hello! Like heels. This year we are seeing the platform sole which with its heftier sole balances out a fitted-top and the season’s wide-leg pant. if you look around you’ll see its boots that are made for walking. From ankle booties to slouch boots to lace up boots, you’re bound to find a style that sexes up your look. Ok for folks, that’s it for me on the fashion trends of 2007. I wish the happiest of happy and the merriest of merry.
