Remember jeggings? Or blinged low rise denim? There’s a reason we don’t speak of those “trends” anymore. Trends come and go in the fashion industry and this summer may be the last season that you’ll witness some of these popular styles.
After hours of researching what trends will last beyond the next season and which will not, we’ve narrowed our list down to the top 6 trends that will disappear by this Fall.
There’s no doubt that everyone was wearing a choker necklace when this trend reappeared last summer. From famous celebrities including Rihanna and the Kardashians to Instagram bloggers, choker necklaces were seen everywhere. These versatile necklaces were first made popular 500 years ago… it’s safe to say that we can put this trend to rest now.
Why is this trend coming to an end? Chokers have had their moment in the fashion, but new jewelry including statement earrings will replace the famous choker.
THE CHOKER DRESS
Wait… is it a choker or a dress? Either way, this trend needs to go. Just when we had thought we’d seen enough of choker necklaces on Instagram, out came the choker dress. Don’t get us wrong, we have seen various versions of the choker tops and dresses, and some are very stylish, but enough is enough. It’s time to move on, ladies.
The corset trend is as dead as Rob Kardashian’s sock company. The odd trend of wearing corsets over your dresses was cute when Kylie Jenner styled it with her FashionNova fit, but it was definitely a miss rather than a hit for the masses. As much as we enjoyed seeing this trend emerge and the different ways fashion icons styled a corset, we’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time for this trend to step down.
Wedges and sneakers? Yes, this did happen. There’s not much we can say about this trend other than it needs to go. Fashion brands including Michael Kors, Puma, and Isabel Marant have all come out with their own versions of the sneaker wedges, but this look is just not doing it.
It won’t be long before we see these sneakers disappear. Afterall, haven’t you heard that dad sneakers are the newest and hottest sneakers in town?
If Vogue said it, we believe it. According to Vogue, “Coachella street style is officially over.” This means that you’ll have to step your game up at music festivals this summer and stay away from basic trends including flower crowns, or any floral for that matter, fringe and feathers, cowboy boots and tie-dye looks.
Step out of the box and try new trends for summer festivals this year. Tassel earrings, wicker bags, Bermuda denim shorts, and gingham print dresses are all styles you can try this season.
Yes, we’ve all been there. Mullet skirts, also known as “high-low skirts,” were definitely in style for a long period of time. However, as we’ve mentioned before, not all trends last. The mullet skirts typically appear during summer, but this year, the revival will be fleeting. Ladies, substitute your mullet skirts for chic pleated skirts instead!
There you have it, the list of items you may want to take out of circulation from your wardrobe after this season. Remember, some trends do come back in better versions, and if you’re not ready to let go of your favourite mullet skirt or flower crown, then pack it away for now.
