It was quite the year for the accessory-obsessed: there were definitely loads of baubles, bags, and footwear to drool over! Any fashionista worth her weight in gold tried at least one of these cool crazes, if not all of them. In 2010, we got schooled by chic backpacks, wrapped up in stylish turbans, and swallowed alive by giant knuckle rings.
