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.

    Dear Dish-It In The Forums

    CoolerThanMyself
    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)

    Is there a particular reason or situation causing you to feel this way? I can't provide much advice other than talk to them about it. Communication is important.

    He is a jerk, but then what ?? He is your best friend . Maybe you should tell him to sleep for an extra hour. It may be a lack of sleep.
