Best of 2009: Trend of the Year

Our favorite trends of the year revolve around two body parts, while one can be splattered anywhere on the body. Intrigued? Legs got a lot of attention with the emergence of sexy over-the-knee boots, denim's distressed revenge, and the reemergence of leggings. Meanwhile, shoulder love continued to flourish via shoulder pads and sharp outerwear — specifically, the Michael Jackson-esque drummer jacket. Lastly, studs continue to deliver edge and sass to clothing, shoes, and bags. Which trend did you follow the closest in 2009?
