From the big bag to the underboob.
How to Make Tough Trends Wearable From the big bag to the underboob.

Trends tend to change as fast as people can adapt to them. We've come to a point where clothes that just walked through the runways can easily be on everyone's Instagram OOTD a few hours later. However, there are still trends that are too out there for everyone to try for themselves, since we all have our own levels of comfort that we have to adjust to, and some trends just don't make the cut.

But with fashion, if there's a will, there's always a way. Here are three of the toughest trends in fashion right now that can actually be made wearable:

EASY: Big Shoulders

Coats and suits with exaggerated shoulders made the case for "masculine" fashion on the runways. They're high-fashion without being too Comme des Garcons, and the bulky silhouette is making us think of more ways to highlight our shoulders without showing skin.

How to make it wearable: Wear tops with puffy sleeves or roll up the sleeves of your oversized sweaters. The volume you create will give the same illusion of broader shoulders without the geometric look.

Bigger is better with bags again, and although bringing too much things in your bag is okay, carrying a big ol' sack is not too realistic for daily wear.

How to make it practical: Go for a shopper or a bucket bag. Both are the perfect size for dumping everything that you need for the day without looking too bulky.

HARD: Underboob

The underboob trend is currently beating the sideboob at its own game. Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner are officially hooked on this skin-baring trend, making their crop top game stronger by showing off more than just their abs.

How to make it wearable: Play this slightly racy trend down by layering a sheer top with subtle detailing under your boob-baring crop. It won't entirely cover the underboob, but it's good enough not to let you freeze to death and risk a crop top version of a Marilyn Monroe moment.
