Trends come, and trends go. Each and every season we are bombarded with images of the “next big thing” that we all need to rush out and grab. I love trends, they are what keeps fashion feeling fresh. It’s what makes the fashion industry forever active and changing. It’s all that “out with the old, in with new” mentality that keeps it exciting.
3 Street Style Trends to Phase Out
Not long ago, we were all sporting our favourite comfy tee’s with chunky statement necklaces. We were bored with simplicity and looking for pieces that would take casual ensembles and turn them into something bold. Statement necklaces were, as they say, “all the rage” for a while there. These oversized pieces were eye-catching, bold, and dressed up even the most basic of looks – but now, we’re over them.
While statement jewelry looks beautiful, the fact is that it’s not all that practical. These “bold pieces” are more clunky and heavy which makes them challenging to wear on a daily basis. Taking their place this spring are dainty and barely-there pieces that are both light and easy to wear.
It feels like just yesterday that I saw “camo print” being named as one of the “it trends”. My initial reaction wasn’t all that impressed. Growing up, I lived in camo print – and frankly, I didn’t feel like revamping my elementary school go-to and adding camo back into my style. It didn’t take much convincing though for me to finally give camo a shot, and I was pleasantly surprised.
Here’s the thing: I don’t hate camo print. In-fact, I think it can still be styled to look incredibly chic. But, I’m done with the “camo everything!” trend that seemed to sweep through. Rather than camo being a statement print, let’s transition camo into a neutral.
This is one trend I never got into. While I can appreciate candy-colour hair on others, I’ve never had the desire or interest to dye my hair pinks, purples, or greens. Even when the temporary hair chalk treatment came around, I just simply wasn’t interested. Call me boring – even unadventurous, but if there’s one thing you can’t sway me to try it’s the hair chalk trend.
Which trends are you ready to say goodbye to?
