The past year did a remarkable job as far as the sartorial department is concerned. 2014 brought us a number of wonderful style ideas that won’t have any problems crossing over to 2015. But you know what they say, right? The good always comes with the bad. So while we appreciate all the creativity and resourcefulness that the last year has introduced to both the red carpet and the runway, we're sad to say that some trends are only good enough to last for a few seasons. Now, if you really want to start off this year in style, we suggest you ditch these fashion trends just like your good-for-nothing ex-boyfriend.
We’d be the first to admit that the summer love affair we’ve had with these mirrored sunnies lasted longer than expected, but that fling has to end now.
PLAID SHIRT TIED AROUND THE WAIST
We appreciate ‘90s-inspired fashion making a comeback and slipping through the cracks, but it’s already 2015 and we’re way past the period of recycling. Let’s try to be original this year and come up with something fresh, okay? Next!
To say that we were fond of normcore would be an understatement because we worshipped the trend and basked in all its laid-back glory. We fell in love with its quirky appeal for a brief moment, but let’s be honest now and admit that the ugly shoe trend was never meant to last─ especially not in the world of high fashion.
So you’re a Swiftie, fine. There’s really no need to wear a shirt that says “you look like my next mistake.” Because seriously, do you really appreciate the people walking past you and staring at your chest while trying to decipher what’s written on it?
Flower crowns are all the rage during music festivals and they look gorgeous in fashion editorials. We think it’s kind of pretty, too, but that’s no excuse to sashay around the mall with roses and daisies around your head. It’s awkward in every way and it doesn’t matter if you’re nicely dressed because people are just going to stare at you like you’re #cray. So unless there’s a wedding and you’re the bride (or at the very least, part of the entourage), we beg of you, don’t even think about it.
SHEER SKIRT WITH VISIBLE UNDERWEAR
We think Jennifer Lawrence was partly to blame for this trend after her red carpet moment wearing Dior at the Catching Fire premiere. Jennifer Morrison and Miranda Kerr followed in her footsteps and this ultimately resulted to a domino effect with some people thinking it's actually cool to show off your buttocks on the street. Quite honestly, we’ve seen enough. It’s about time we put a stop to this sheer disaster.
