Goodbye 2008 - Legs, Fashion Blogs, Individual Style and Costume Jewellery

As we say farewell to 2008 and welcome to 2009, here is a look back over the fashion and style of 2008.

The year of the leg- 2008 saw just about every type of leg wear to draw attention to the legs from tights in bright colours and patterns, to leather and wetlook leggings and thigh high boots.

The year of the fashion blog - 2008 was the year in which fashion blogging went crazy. So many new fashion blogs started in 2008 including the Munique Fashions blog. Fashion blogs are a great way to find out about the latest styles and trends and get some great fashion and style inspiration.

The year of individual style - 2008 was the year that individual style became uber fashionable. Ladies no longer want to follow the latest trend but wear their own unique style by picking and choosing from the latest trends, mixing designer and high street clothing with vintage and showing their personality by accessorising with individual accessories and handmade jewellery.

This handcrafted leather handbag is an original and unique design. A great way to accessorise a casual outfit such as jeans and a jumper.

The year of the costume jewellery - Costume jewellery is now a key element of many designer collections. In 2008 there has also been the emergence of many new jewellery designers. Jewellery is no longer something just chosen to compliment an outfit, new innovative pieces are a key style statement in their own right.
