While it feels like most things went belly-up in 2018, we at least had nice clothes — for the most parts.
There were some things we absolutely loved while we had them on, we reckon it’s time to ditch ‘em once the clock strikes twelve.
Skip the off-shoulders for the puff shoulders
The bohemian off-shoulder trend has been here for a few years, making us add a few more strapless bras to the underwear drawer, but there’s good news in the horizon – you can keep your straps on for 2019.
Next season’s bold shoulders gather with pleats of elastic, they work particularly well with square necklines on feminine dresses. Hit up Brock Collection, Rodarte and Saint Laurent to get started on the silhouette.
Skip the microsunnies for round lenses
Itty bitty sunnies that barely shield your eyes from the sun probably top the spot for the trends we didn’t get this year.
The trend, once popular in the ’40s and then again in the ’90s, is something that you’ll look back and cringe. Instead, opt for round lenses that are more flattering, and you know, sensible for shielding against sun rays.
Skip the millennial pink for neon
We will always and forever have a soft spot for the shade of pink that has been plaguing our Instagram feeds for a few years now, but it’s time to ditch the colour and go bolder and better with neon.
Pink or otherwise, wear the highlighter shade with reckless abandon and stand out.
Skip the bike shorts for leggings
We blame Kim Kardashian for making this a thing. Bike shorts belong on bikes — not when you’re out and about, risking mayhem and camel toe galore.
The good news is athleisure is still in style, and you can rock ‘em leggings even though you’re not heading to the gym.
Skip the chunky dad sneakers for regular shoes
Skip the latex dress for anything but…
Again, we blame the Kardashians. We get that fashion isn’t always comfortable, but there are somethings that should be left to dominatrixes… and sausages. Like the latex casings that resemble dresses we’ve seen people wear things wear.
Put it down and walk away…
Skip the tracksuits for pant suits
We know it’s the 90s revival to blame, but why didn’t we learn our lesson in the past with this?
Co-ords, in the form of pants suits and skirts suits are staying put, though, and we’re welcoming that.
Skip the jorts for the sensible shorts
Look to the runways of Alexa Chung, Margaret Howell, Rejina Pyo and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi for inspiration.
