With a brand new year upon us, it's the ultimate time to re-work your wardrobe ready for 2010. Whether you're after just a few new must-have favorites to bring your outfits up-to-the-minute or you want a total head-to-toe revamp, here is all you'll need to make your mark and stay top of the trends this new year:
Animal print continues to fly off the shelves! Leopard print, snakeskin and zebra were a huge hit on the A/W runway shows of Dolce & Gabbana and Mulberry, and this is one key trend that will continue to be on everyoneís wish lists well into the spring season ahead. Set to be best-sellers are flattering black and white body-con dresses or long, floaty blouses. Super sexy and tres chic for either work or play!
2) Black and White
An alternative way to work the hottest new monochrome trend is with this smart and stunning sleeveless number from Wallis. Itís a great take on Gucci's classic black and white dress.
With the weather still cold, dull and dark, the easiest way to lift your winter bluesis by wearing bold, bright colors.Color-blocking was a massive story in Spring / Summer 2009 and it's back, brighter and bolder than ever for 2010! Embrace this distinctive Gucci and Pucci-esque color-blocking fashion story with this head-turning, super-slimming blue and black (top or dress) from Wallis.4) Embellishment
Finally, I just love this black knit dress! It's so easy-to-wear, cool, cosy and perfect for any winter occasion. The embellished detail on the shoulders is inspired by the likes of Balmain and Jean Paul Gaultier, who worked studs onto body-con dresses in 2009. Wrap yourself warm in this Wallis studded knit dress (available in black or grey) for only £30. Just add opaque tights or leggings with boots and youíre ready for a day out - come rain, wind or snow.
