We all love welcoming the new year with a clean slate and a fresh beginning. And although we are aware this requires us to leave some things behind, there are others we’re just not quite ready to let go of.
Below, seven über wearable trends that became a huge part of our 2015 fashion DNA. And unlike that boring guy we dumped right after a few dates, these are the ones we certainly couldn't ditch just as easily.
We're still madly and deeply in love. As seen on the runways of Vania Romoff and J.W. Anderson to name a few, the Victorian era-influenced ruffles top our list of trends to keep. When done right, the flirty, feminine detail will certainly score you a 10 across the board.

The lengthening linear print has come a long way from its days at the office. How can we ever let them go especiallly now that it comes in rompers, skirts, dresses, and even shorts?
As early as January last year, we told you to forget about normcore and join #TeamCozy. The sneaker craze made us trade in our stilettos for Yeezys and our skinny jeans for pajama trousers, but this 2016, it's still the chill pill we're addicted to.
Okay, we have to admit, the end for this trend is coming. We're lucky if it reaches the end of summer. But, whatever, we'll be holding on to the clavicle-baring trend a wee bit longer.
Late bloomers, you're in luck. Because if you discovered your love for the cropped trousers late last year, you can still continue wearing them through 2016. We know we will.
You've seen the fashion crowd digging into the return of this '90s trend, and it's not yet too late to try it. Go ahead and get yourself a pair; there is still a surplus of it in stores.
Scarves and Chokers
We still feel like channeling the Parisian chicks in us by tying scarves around our necks. And we've only had roughly eight months of flirting with the '90s chokers, so don't mind if we do continue wearing both neck pieces this year.
Suede and Velvet
The '70s trend was no doubt one of the biggest fashion hits of last year. Looking back, we realize we're still fixated with the texture and vibe that suede and velvet have to offer. We're definitely shopping for more of these two fabrics in shorts, mini skirts, and dresses.
Happy New Year, lovely ladies!
