Happy New Year! Here’s to an amazing 2017. But before I can cheer the new year and start discovering new and popular fashion trends for 2017, I think it’s a good idea to take some time to reflect on the trends, that in my opinion, need to vanish in the new year. We all have different opinions and some of the trends that I mention you might totally love, but that’s the fun of fashion, everyone has their different styles. You won’t catch me wearing any of the styles mentioned below or if I have, they will no longer be taking up anymore space in my closet. Keep on reading to find out which trends that were oh so popular in 2016, I hope will vanish in 2017.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my cartoon patches on my denim jacket or sneakers, but I really only like the generic symbols like a heart, peace sign, and so on. What I am talking about is the emoji on your phone like the dancing girl, the devilish twins, the sassy lady, the laughing face, and more. The emojis you use when texting your best friend or when you are lost of words. I love my emojis but only for texting not for fashion. To me emoji overload on clothing just looks tacky.
Nothing is better than a pair of distressed jeans which is why whenever I buy a new pair of jeans I always find one with a distressed detail, but when the jeans feature a hole that is the size of your calf, that’s not fashion to me, but just sloppy. My tip for wearing distressed jeans is finding a pair with small rips that can still be worn around town or even to work. Avoid the distressed pair of jeans that look like your jeans just went through the shredder.
I wish overalls looked good on me. Time after time, I always try on a pair of denim overalls hoping that they would work, but sadly each time I am left disappointed. I’m extremely jealous of all of you who can rock overalls, but for me denim overalls just are so uncomfortable and feature a little too much denim for my liking.
Faux fur belongs anywhere except on shoes. Why would you have fur on your shoes? My luck is I would step in a massive puddle on the streets of New York and we all know that puddles on New York streets are usually filled with all sorts of nastiness. My shoes would end up looking like a wet dog.
I love all sorts of prints and patterns like floral, stripes, plaid, and so on, but I have never been into gingham. To me it just looks like I’m wearing a table cloth. Once again it looks great on other people, but when I try to wear this print, it is a total fail. Maybe the gingham print doesn’t have to entirely disappear? Maybe I’ll find subtle ways to incorporate the style into my wardrobe? But for right now you won’t catch me in head to toe gingham.
This may be a shocker because I have a feeling a lot of you like the peplum look. Trust me I get it. A lot of my friends love wearing a blouse or dress that features that little poof at the waist but for me I feel like that excess fabric is just not needed and just draws more attention to your hips. Maybe I seem a little bitter towards this trend because I just haven’t found the right peplum piece.
Oversized choker necklaces
I know what you are thinking…Liv how are chokers on this list when pretty much every style post of yours features a choker? What I don’t like is extremely oversized chokers. You know, the type that look like you are wearing a neck brace. To me that just seems so uncomfortable and overdone. I can’t wear anything more than a simple thin chain because otherwise I feel like I’m choking (no pun intended).
Extremely high slits
I love a nice dress or skirt with a slitted detail but when the slit goes all the way up to your hip bone, that’s a bit of overkill for me. A slit like Chrissy Teigen and Bella Hadid wear is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. I would be terrified to move. For me, A slit that goes to your knees or a little above is sexier than an extremely high slit because it leaves a little to the imagination.
My fashion taste is forever changing so the things I mentioned now might be the it item for me in the future. But one thing for sure, there are so many other amazing trends coming in 2017. I Hope everyone is having a great start to the new year. Continue the discussion below by sharing some of the trends you would like to see disappear in 2017. Talk to you all soon!
