If 02 could be defined by one trend, denim would be it. Everyone from Alexander McQueen to Karl Lagerfeld did denim on the catwalk, and every item from blazers to pencil skirts were created in denim.
Twill, olive drab, camouflage, and all things army-inspired were hot. Marc Jacobs-esque Sgt. Pepper jackets were the most stylin with versions made by Gap and AE, to name a few.
Found on everything from preppy sweaters to hipster scarves, bold stripes were unbeatable. The best look by far was beyond-cool striped skinny jeans funky and completely flattering.
After they were spotted on the Balenciaga runway, everyone wanted a pair of the decidedly cazsh pants, which looked just as great paired with heels as with flip flops.
Juicy Couture created them. J.Lo popularized them. Everyone loved them. Perfect for lounging at home, quick trips to the store, and even movie premieres (if youre Jennifer, that is).
Long, chunky, and perfectly cool. This winter, scarves dressed up even the most boring of outfits and added a polished look to casual styles. Favorites included pompom-adorned and fringe-detailed.
This chunky gem was the essential jewel of 02 the only way to go. From sleek rings and chic bracelets to eye-catching, show-stopping pendants, turquoise was just the thing.
Flouncy, embroidered, and lace-trimmed peasant tops were found in every girls wardrobe this year. Paired with everything from lace-up jeans to equally bohemian gypsy skirts, they were a hit.
All forms were fab: super-wide, massive buckles, rustic coloring, and loads of fringe, as long as they had a certain aged appeal. Always flawless when worn low on the hips.
A funky version of the blazer was hotter than hot, perfect for layering. Dont forget the oh-so-chic wide-leg trousers and the fresh punk-inspired necktie (Avril, anyone?).
