Another year, another set of new trends. As we welcome the new year ahead, we look back at 2015’s high and lows in fashion. Which trends do we take with us to the next year and which should we retire immediately? With 2016 already here, we round up 2015’s biggest fashion trends: the best, the worst, the ones we proudly “#ootd”, and the ones that stay rotting in the recently deleted folder.
A-line mini skirts. Worn atop bare legs or tights, they’re seasonless and leg-lengthening: a winning combo. Next is ponchos/shawls. Cozy and statement-making with the different patterns, fringe and textures. This lovely staple will definitely be around for years and years to come. Then we have the lovely lace up flat or heel. This elegant and easy paired closet staple is a must have to go with some skinnies and a sweater or just a great dress! The last best trend of 2015 that really became popular this year are athletic inspired outfits. Putting on joggers, sneakers and a mock neck sweatshirt is not only now considered fashionable, but also one of the most comfortable trends ever!
Recently flare jeans have been coming back in style and becoming more and more popular; they are slimming and flattering. The trend of 2015 that doesn’t work is cropped flares, not only making your legs look short and stumpy, but they are almost impossible to style! Keeping up with the jean “trend”, another denim piece that also became big this year; patchwork denim. All it looks like is someone trying to fix a hole in your jeans by cutting up old pairs and gluing it on. Not cute. And we all know how much everyone loves our celebrities that like to show a little skin, but the sheer dresses that were everywhere in 2015, need to stay in 2015. You can still look gorgeous and a little risque without showing literally everything off! Keep them guessing ladies…
Overall, 2015 was an amazing year for fashion. Fashion icons were made and looked up to, so many new styles and fun accessories were reborn as well. Besides a few bad pieces that somehow became a trend, I know 2016 is going to leave that behind.
