2010 Most Surprising Fashion Trends

Who woulda “thunk” it? Not only have the 80’s oozed their way back into the average woman’s wardrobe; the 90’s weren’t far behind. We said we wouldn’t be caught dead in neon. But we ran out and grabbed juicy colored hi-top sneakers. We said we’d never wear harem pants. But those too, made an appearance on fashion runways. These trends that at one time made us gag, are back in full effect. And now there are even more semi-icky trends that appear to be gathering steam. Check out any celebrity gossip blog and you’ll find plenty of examples. Models and celebrities are tossing these styles into the mix as if they are the newest things since sliced toast.

The Rapunzel Braid

What?!? That’s what readers of urban celeb site said as they cast their eyes on singer Kelis’ (wife of rapper, Nas) down-to-there Rapunzel braid. As if the mauve latex body suit, cropped jacket, and bubble-shaped platform shoes weren’t enough, Kelis decided to add a long silvery braid that snaked all the way down to her ankles. And if you thought this style was limited to the outrageous and outspoken—think again. Singer Brandy was also recently photographed rocking a thick black Rapunzel braid when she performed at the House of Blues in L.A.

Pirates R Us: Pants in Boots

Just when you started to get used “sagging” in the hip-hop community, another trend has emerged. But instead of tucking their shirts into their pants, they’ve decided to tuck their pants into their boots, creating a “pirate” effect. The style has been trickling into urban communities for a while. But R&B singer Chris Brown donned an extreme version of the style during fashion week in Paris. Others like rapper Shawty Lo and crooner Usher have also caught onto the trend.


If you thought that plaid died along with the 1990’s grunge music scene, you’re not alone. But alas, it appears that grunge has made somewhat of a comeback. The trend appears to be more popular with today’s youth. But the style hasn’t been lost on those who actually remember the grunge scene. All thoughts of Nirvana and Pearl Jam aside, the 2010 rebirth is a lot simpler than it was in previous decades. Plaid shirts are casually paired with today’s skinny jeans, creating a casually chic dichotomy in the process. On a recent episode of the

Plaid is back??

Show, Wendy confirmed this trend by showcasing her own version of the look—complete with hot pink stilettos.

The Fanny Pack

If there ever was a fashionista who could do no wrong, it’s über-socialite Amber Rose. And apparently, she’s decided that the fanny pack (yes that fanny pack) should enjoy newfound fame. But this clever gal can’t take full credit. Louis Vuitton is actually responsible for marketing the furry contraption that Amber Rose was seen sporting. But never fear: other starlets (like Rihanna) have gotten their hands on additional “LV” versions. And they’re coming to a fashion runway near you.
