There are but two more months left in 2017 and it's about time we moved on from fashion trends whose graphs have begun running south. So grab those shovels Y'all, we've got some dead trends to bury.
It came and it conquered the fashion scene for a short albeit successful period. It had its perks, but could not emerge from the shadow of its sister trend; the off shoulder. While the off shoulder pieces are flirty, feminine and sexy at the same time, the cold shoulder was just a peek-a-boo play that couldn't survive the treacherous waters of fashion.
This might just hold the record for most overused fashion trend ever. Crop tops were hailed as the bridge between haute couture and mass market but broke the threshold when it appeared everywhere. Their popularity is no excuse for not finding anything but them when you walk into every retail store you know. Come on people! Move on.
OVERLY DISTRESSED DENIM
This was a great fashion trend that spread like wildfire right after it was launched. Two decades and a million DIY tutorials later, the trend is starting to distress people. So, if you were about to go and buy a pair, It's time you thought again.
Everything lovely remains lovely until you literally choke its beauty from overuse. This trend had a great run, but it's time we gave it up. The only consolation remains that its popularity grants it the position of a classic fashion statement. So use it, but don't abuse it
The whole reason behind the invention of sneakers was to help you to go easy on your feet. Sure it looked cool while it lasted and a while did it last, but wedge sneakers are not an acceptable replacement for sneakers. Two words; BACK OFF
SLIPS OVER DRESS
Hi! The 80's called and it wants it's trend back. The one good thing about slips as an outerwear was that it was in the 80's. Whilst Molly Ringwald looked great as a 17-year-old in breakfast club wearing it, do you see her wearing it now?
We get it. It's a one piece. No fuss, feminine enough to look pretty and sporty enough to look tough. But two years is too much to obsess over a fad. Face it, it's time to say buh-bye.
