We’re past the year’s halfway mark, and that means all the edgy new trends that were sprung on us in January have settled into familiar styles. Now, most girls won’t think twice about wearing palazzo pants in place of skinny jeans or pairing stripes with animal prints.

But while we can appreciate the inspiring looks we see online or in magazines, some of us aren’t exactly confident about translating them into our own wardrobes. Sure, you can buy all the necessary items, but when it comes to wearing them in public, a lot of women regress into their comfort zones—keeping the new clothes hanging in their closets.

Enter FN’s crash course to mastering the trends! Here, we’ve selected 5 major trends of 2011 and styled them in a variety of ways to suit your dressing preferences. Don’t get left behind—try seventies, mixed prints, sheer, tribal, and minimalist before the year is out!
