My Favorite Fashion Trends from 2010

Before I finally close my chapter 2010, let me recall 15 of my favorite fashion trends which have become part of my exciting journey throughout the year. I'm not really the trendy type but somehow, my style also gets influenced by some trends. How I dress-up defines my design aesthetic for Binkydoodles as well. My line is actually just an extension of my own closet. And designing gives me fulfillment because it makes me the feel like I have a lot of clothes without actually owning them. I love clothes that can go from day to night, or the ones which can be worn in several occasions and can be mixed and matched with other wardrobe staples. Most of my clothes are my own designs and I love wearing them with my favorite brands or with my fabulous cheap finds.

Time flies so fast and fashion evolves with it. Trends do come and go and if last year was a year of particular trends, this year will be a set of another one. New trends may come-up or old trends may just resurface. We don't always have to go with what's current or what's now. What really matters is that we make good memories by living with the best of what we have. So if you could live in style, why not live and love it?
