The start of a new year brings a great opportunity to reflect — we can look back on what we accomplished, and make resolutions for the coming 12 months. I always look forward to cleaning out the old closet and making room for fresh new pieces. With less than 48 hours until a brand-new year, I thought it necessary to highlight some of the things I'm planning — and coveting — when the clock strikes midnight. Click through to see my 11 style resolutions for 2011.

Odette Yustman's been on our radar for her chic, no-fuss style sense. Here, she masters two trends in one take — a little leopard and a ladylike, maxi length Blu Moon skirt ($154) that manages to look cool and totally sophisticated all at once. Channel the same style with a pretty, full skirt ($250), then add a dose of the wild print on top ($70) — or vice versa. The bonus is that this pair will still feel fresh and on-trend come Spring. Just click above to shop the look!
Give your regular skinny jeans a rest for a while and invest in a pair of cozy cool corduroys. We've tracked down six pairs that are all on sale, so you can achieve cool, all without bugging your wallet. Fab's favorite is these J Brand Skinny Leg Corduroy Pants ($105, originally $158) — the grayish-white hue is super fresh, and the price tag is equally sweet. But any of the above styles will also keep you looking totally on trend. Click to shop.
We've seen some interesting leather shorts recently, and we're wondering: are they really wearable? OnSugar blog Black by Sara says yes, using an uber-chic, leather-shorted Olivia Palermo and five cool leather short styles as proof.
I adore leather and shorts, so you guessed it, I love this new trend. Olivia Palermo is sporting this style in a right way with black heels and a camel tone bag. Love it!

Portia de Rossi got back to basics while in St. Barts with wife Ellen DeGeneres. Her gauzy white camisole and slouchy capris are a classic resort uniform, but she gives it a subtle dose of glam with layered necklaces. Top it off with a floppy straw hat ($9) and a cute beach bag ($54), and you're ready to go to the beach.

This is the girls-just-wanna-have-fun version of the editorial.

Topping this year's fashion news — and lists of our favorite things — designers for less continued to make headlines and changed our shopping ways forever. With promises of an affordable Karl Lagerfeld line for Macy's, and Alber Elbaz bringing Lanvin to H&M, there were few style stories that could outshine the impact these lower-cost designer goodies had on budgets — and our style!
In case you missed it, we've rounded up our favorite designer collections for less:
- Rachel Pally created an exclusive dress for Target shoppers, and Target keeps the cost-friendly designer goods coming with a limited-edition dress collection launching in the Spring.
- Vena Cava launched a lower-priced t-shirt line.
- Cynthia Vincent's Fab footwear hit Target stores.
- Valentino designed a ruffly chic collection for Gap Italy.
- Zac Posen also gave us a whimsical Target collection.
- Mulberry for Target was one of the most exciting collabs.
- And the latest high-low collection is William Rast for Target.
Demi Moore, with husband Ashton Kutcher, boarded a boat in St. Barts in true vacation style. How can you not love Demi's tribal-print Missoni maxi, especially when paired with black gladiator sandals, oversize sunglasses, and a Jimmy Choo raffia hobo? Some of her exact pieces are not available online, so shop these alternatives to mimic Miss Moore's awesome resort look.
Kourtney Kardashian traveled — baby in tow — through the Miami airport in a cowboy-inspired ensemble. The whole outfit had a Western vibe, but especially her black fedora, buckle belt, and two-toned boots. Shop those pieces with a ribbed tunic and slightly faded skinny jeans and you'll have Kourtney's Tex-Mex look down pat.
