Fair isle, the knit pattern that instantly transports us to an Aspen ski lodge where we're sipping hot cocoa, is one of winter's most iconic prints. And now, it's become one of this season's hottest trends. The cozy topper has been spotted on celebs such as Victoria Beckham, Hilary Duff, and Rihanna, proving that this traditional look is appropriate both on and off the slopes. But with such a seasonal item, we decided to hit up the style blogs for ideas on how to get the most wear out of this look. Jennifer Engren of Fashionista To Garmento, Laura Gommans of The World Looks Red, and Erica Matos of Pretty All The Time demonstrate how to put a modern spin on the classic piece.

Jennifer is a fashion merchandising student living in New York City whose chunky gray sweater is one of the most affordable Nordic-themed knits we've seen. At just $10 from H&M, she could have nabbed two...or three. We also love how Jennifer wore it with knee-high rubber boots, another wintertime staple.

Amsterdam-based blogger Laura's beige, reindeer-print cardigan from Zara has a whimsical (but non-cheesy) feel. That's probably because the neutral shade of her topper keeps the allover print subdued instead of overtly loud (don't confuse fair isle with ugly Christmas sweaters!). Paired with winterized shorts and chic accessories, Laura shows us how this casual look can get the dressed-up treatment.

The cinched waist on blogger Erica's wrap sweater from Old Navy is a flattering fit and works well layered over her gray Charlotte Russe leggings for a casual, comfortable outfit. The combination of colors in the sweater also make it more versatile and a less traditional option than other fair isle prints (which might feel a bit too yuletide-heavy for some).

We love cold-weather accessories for their added warmth and extra outfit oomph, but hate the bulk of too much bundling. Which is why we're loving winter's latest look—head wraps. Since they cover your ears but show off your hair, and shield your head but highlight your face, this is a trend that showcases your style instead of hiding it. We hit up some of our favorite style blogs for tips on choosing and wearing the perfect head wrap. Lisa Ostermann of Lisa Rosalie, Seaghna Wilson of Lights Drive My Soul, and Nathalie H. of Accessory Pirate all kicked off this new year with a new wintery look. Read More...

Unless you're lucky enough to live in a warmer climate (and for that we are incredibly jealous), bundling up is a must. But there's no need to bulk up in uncomfortable layers when cute coats are readily available. The peacoat, a tried-and-true winter staple, is currently experiencing a modern upgrade with unique fabrics, cuts, and colors to fit anyone's personal style. Just check out how cool style bloggers Rachel Combs of Mouse Vox Vintage, Arushi Khosla of Fab Blab, and Justyna Baraniecki of Chichichic all look in their not-your-run-of-the-mill peacoats.

Celebs weren't the only ones who dressed to impress in 2010. Throughout the year, we hit the streets to get you to Show Us Your Style and, BOY, were we floored (in a very good way) by what we found. There was Tabia in NYC who we spotted rocking Tron-style sunglasses that, to this day, rival the cool quotient of 30 Seconds to Mars' frontman Jared Leto's animal print shield shades. And we loved seeing all of the marvelous odes to Lady Gaga style outside her New York City concert; our fave Little Monster was Chris who got creative with caution tape (à la Gaga's "Telephone" video). Read on for quotes and clips from other top street stylers.

TRENDY SUNGLASSES

We found Tabia, a 23-year-old who works in public relations, across the street from a Duane Reade in New York City. We were drawn to her entire ensemble—her torn jean vest/shirt, her metallic shell necklace, her braided 'do—but we were FIXATED on her outer space-inspired shades. "When I buy sunglasses, I look for something that other people don't have," said Tabia. Mission accomplished.

LADY GAGA'S LITTLE MONSTERS

New Yorker Chris was one of our favorite Little Monsters waiting outside a NYC Lady Gaga concert over the summer. Inspired by Gaga's "Telephone" video, Chris wore what he called "construction gear," which included caution tape, green shorts and flip-flops.

SNEAKER CON

What makes a sneaker hot? "It's gotta be clean, more than anything. No ripped-up bottoms, can't be squeezed up," said Seth from the Bronx. We spotted this sneakerhead at Sneaker Con in October wearing orange/black/purple Adidas with a pair of Kill City jeans, a shirt from Goliath, a tan cargo jacket, oversize glasses, and a gray bucket hat.

FAST FASHION

For Isabella, a 21-year-old from Cambridge, England, clothes are more than just cover-ups. "When I go shopping I look for stuff which is quite hard-core and rock 'n' roll because I'm in an '80s metal band back home. So I really really want to express my music through my style." When we saw the Cambridge, England native she was wearing a graphic tank top, denim short shorts, combat boots, and a shaved head, like singer Cassie.

SUMMER SHOES

We found Mikey, a fashion publicity student, over the summer wearing a funky pair of black Creative Recreation shoes, which he tucked his skinny jeans into. "I'm willing to spend like $200...I also have a red pair," Mikey added. We're not surprised! The kicks looked like a good investment—perfect for any season.

Tis the season...to break out sparkly sequins! And since this trend has a limited shelf life, we turned to the style blogs for inspiration on how to make the most out of the festive (usually reserved for sundown) look by wearing it in the daytime, too. Jacqueline Le Brun of Around The Hourglass, Eboni Ife of Fashionista Next Door and Anna "Robbie" Robinson of The Other Side Of The Pond My Dear show us how you can dazzle without looking like a disco ball.

During winter's chilly months, it's outerwear that speaks volumes about one's style. Which is why we're coveting one of this seasons must-have staples—capes! Not the superhero-style (though those are cool, too); these cozy coats offer a fun departure from ho-hum peacoats and trenches. We decided to hit up some of our favorite style blogs for tips on looking great in a cape (as you can imagine, it's easy to get the proportions wrong). Shareen Sarwar of Vintage Mavens, Emily Yakashiro of Glittering Bones and Lauren Ashley of Everyday To Runway all rock very different capes, but they look oh-so-adorable doing it! Read More...

Fur might be fabulous, but when it comes to the real deal, we stand with PETA. That doesn't mean passing on the trend entirely. Fake is no longer a faux pas. In fact, we've spotted celebs like Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, and Fergie wrapped in the imitation stuff, proving you can stay toasty and stylish without hurting any furry friends. Check out how style bloggers Kelli Kangas of The Fashion Worshiper, Vickie Laliotis of Adventures in Fashion and Kate McLean of O My Heart all keep warm while staying politically—and fashionably—correct!

When it comes to the LBD, we're beginning to think the acronym is short an 'L' for "Lace." Celebs like Kelly Osbourne and Heidi Klum both rocked feminine black lace frocks at the 2010 American Music Awards, and Jessica Biel and Kristin Cavallari have also recently been spotted in the ladylike look. But how do you keep the Victorian vibe of lace from looking to grandma? We turned to the style bloggers Anna Katrina of Passport Glamour, Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Vintage and Chandamheer Stacker of Pancake Stacker for tips on wearing this hot fall trend the right way. Read more below. Read More...

Skinny jeans are hardly new, but celebs like Jessica Alba, Leighton Meester, and The City's Whitney Port have all recently been spotted wearing an updated version featuring cargo pockets. To find out how these rugged skinnies can be just as versatile as our sleek, flat-pocketed varieties, we turned to the style blogs. Our top style bloggers of the week, Kathleen Murillo of InspiraFashion, Toni of Fashion Butter and Caitlin Moran of Style Within Reach all showed off clever ways of wearing skinnies with surplus pockets. See how below. Read More...

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
