I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, whichever holiday you celebrate. I also hope that everyone in the cities that have had the extreme weather is doing ok as well.
We are closing out another year. 2008 has been an interesting year in so many ways. The fashion trends of this past year have been an interesting mix of things from bold colors to western themed wear. I hope you had an opportunity to incorporate some of the fashion trends of 2008 into your wardrobe. I’d love to see pictures if you have any. It would be fun to do a fashion year in review featuring some of my fellow Clueless Fashionistas. Feel free to send any pictures to info at cluelessfashionista dot com (it’s spelled out to prevent the spammers from getting a hold of it).
Well as we move into 2009, I have compiled a list of fashion trends that we can look forward to for the upcoming year. I will continue the “How do I wear that trend” feature to give you tips on how to wear next season’s trends but this is just a glimpse into what you can look forward to. Enjoy.
