2010 Fashion Outlook: What's Hot and What's Not

January 11, 2010 10:13:12 AM PST
It's the New Year - time for "out with the old, in with the new."Fashion is no exception, says Lisa Stricker of Woodfield in Schaumburg. Every year we see some old favorites (along with a few looks we couldn't wait to get rid of) replaced by new trends, Lisa says. This doesn't mean you have to give up favorite wardrobe pieces, but a few carefully selected substitutions can go a long way toward updating your style for the New Year. Here's a look at what "in" and what's "out" for men and women. All fashions available stores at Woodfield. For more information, visit www.shopwoodfield.com.
