2005 Fashion :: What's Hot, What's Not

It's a brand new year and you know what that means - new fashion trends! You definitely don't want to be caught wearing last year's styles, so read on for the fashion 411 and look hot, hot, hot this year!

What's Hot

  • Tweed Jackets - Tweed is one of the hottest fabrics, and although it comes in everything from skirts to hats, the must-have item is the fitted blazer. It's making a strong showing in all colors, from earthy tones to pastel hues. Try wearing them with jeans to dress up a casual outfit.
  • Cuffed Jeans - Cropped jeans were an essential item last season, but now, cuffs are all the rage! You can't pull off this look with flared or baggy jeans, so throw on a pair of skinny jeans and fold the legs a couple of times to make chunky cuffs.
  • Wellington Boots - Remember those ugly rubber boots that your 'rents made you wear on rainy days? Well now they're totally hot! Wellies have turned bright and colorful, so don't wait for a rainy day - wear 'em now!
  • Pencil Skirts - Pencil skirts, in mini or knee lengths, are fitted and ultra-girly. They're best worn with your round-toe ballet shoes, but try pairing them with Wellies for a funky look.
  • Tote Bags - Sure, every girl likes tiny designer purses, but large totes are practical and roomy enough to carry all your essential items, from your make-up bag to your MP3 player.
  • What's Not

  • Dirty Denim - It's official: the grungy look is out. Following hot on the heels of the urban prep trend are clean-cut denims, which are totally cool for school.
  • Track Suits - It used to be stylish to dress down and look like you were hitting the gym when you were actually hitting the mall with your gal pals. Now it's not, so only wear your track suits when you go exercise.
  • Ugg Boots - Uggs are cool, especially when they're paired with jeans or a mini, but these boots are seeing their last days. Everywhere you look, girls are stepping out in Uggs and wearing them out, which is why they're not as trendy as they used to be.
  • Frilly Minis - Just like Uggs, the frilly miniskirt is another sweet style that's been exhausted. But since these minis are still so cute, put them away in your closet and save them for when the weather gets warmer.
  • Trucker Hats - To all the girls who're still sporting trucker hats: they went out of style months ago! Throw these silly hats away and put on a newsboy cap or a beanie instead.

    Write an anonymous note. And tell him to put it somewhere that only you can get it back to see what he says.

    hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

    Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

    I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
