The Elle UK February 2010 issue is taking on all of this year's hottest trends to show you how to wear them together. Sporty striped thigh-high socks and a metallic tummy-grazing top? Interesting combination.

Model Skye Stracks looks chic in the Japanese-inspired beachwear, and completes each look with vampy dark lipstick and nail color. Check out the 'Romantic vs. Sporty' shoot for Elle UK Magazine above.

Implications - As of late, modern fashion has seen the resurgence of many popular 80s styles from crop tops to leggings and metallics. Retro-inspired styles are part of a cycle where popular trends from decades past are recycled and incorporated into modern ones. Consumers are eager to experiment with these styles, especially as they continuously reappear in popular media and on the bodies of celebrities and icons.
