Sheer



Don't fear sheer. Show off hints of skin with cutouts, artful layering, and detailed draping. Keep the color palette minimal to allow the detailing to shine.

Graphic Black and White



In 2010, you'll want to add at least one black-and-white graphic print to your wardrobe. Pair each patterned piece with solids for a fresh look.

Slouchy Silk Dressing



We love traditionally structured menswear separates done up in soft, slouchy fabrics. Neutral pieces are perfect for daytime, while moodier, inky navy and black are ideal for nighttime.

Techno Fabrics



Fashion goes high-performance with everything from sleek, scuba-like fabrics to nylon track pants. Pair sporty, tech elements with luxurious, feminine fabrics for textured interest and balance.

Optic Prints



Small, lively optical prints brighten up wardrobes for 2010, with eye-catching patterns and incredibly flattering shapes. Search out fitted, knee-length-or-above shapes to prevent the print from becoming overwhelming.

Lingerie Detailing



Last season's light, airy lingerie trend is updated with darker hues and stronger, sexier silhouettes. Corsets, bustiers, and lace trim round out the underwear-as-outerwear options.

Color-Blocking



Color-blocking continues to rule the runway, this time with a focus on interesting, architectural lines on classic silhouettes. Use the trend to highlight your best assets (with bright pops of color) and conceal the rest (black).

The Natural (But Perfect) Face



The natural look is now practically foolproof—as well as flattering and sophisticated—thanks to new, ever-sheerer textures and subtle pigments. Forgo shimmer and keep shades muted: caramel nudes or barely-there pinks for lips, taupes and beiges for eyes, and tawny peach tones for cheeks. Layer a fawn-colored shadow with brown liner and mascara for a dusky smoky eye.

The Instant Face-Lift



More dramatic than any miracle-claiming face cream, a pair of perfectly arched eyebrows is the closest thing there is to an instant face-lift. Natural-looking, thick brows are what you're after. For a defined effect, pluck only obvious strays below the browbone, then trim any errant hairs along the top with scissors. Fill in sparse areas with a neutral shadow (pencil or powder), and finish with a holding gel or wax.

Loose Updos and Braids



Loose updos and braids were all over the runways. These styles are a simple way to add femininity to a structured outfit. Lots of Lucky editors will be running around with the loose braid seen on the models at the Alexander Wang show! To get the look: Apply mousse, tease hair for maximum volume and texture, then softly braid down one side for a loose, unraveled feel.
