I hope you all are off to an amazing start in the new year! Honestly, I still cannot believe how fast last year went. 2015 was not my favorite year, so I am looking forward to wiping the clean slate and starting fresh.
When it comes to fashion, there are a few trends I hope stay in 2015.
From Jennifer Lopez to Beyonce and beyond, it seems like everyone in Hollywood was competing to see who could wear the most transparent dress. This is a look that screams desperate for attention, and I would love to see more class and less sheer in 2016. I know people love the sheer look, but I strongly believe there is a line that should not be crossed.
I hope that the bralette keeps all sheer dresses company in the past. Very few people can pull off this look to begin with, and who can actually wear a bralette in their daily life? Imagine seeing a work colleague wearing a bralette. #fired
Birkenstocks have been around for ages. I vividly remember every girl and boy in my middle school class begging their moms for a pair. Then people came to their senses, and the look faded…for years. That is until recently. Heidi Klum released a line for the brand, and suddenly, the look resurrected. While these sandals are comfortable, I just cannot stand the style…especially when worn with socks!!! Just say NO.
Just like Birkenstocks, the overall is a childhood look I would love to forget. I don’t care how stylish and fabulous you may be, if you put on a pair of overalls (especially the shorts), it is difficult to be taken seriously. Like the rest of the trends featured in this post, overalls are typically unflattering. Take a look at some of our double offenders. While I appreciate Vanessa’s “free spirit”, her style is a bit perplexing.
High-Waist Skinny Jean
Many of you may remember the infamous picture of Jessica Simpson sporting those dreadful high-waist flare jeans. Fashion critics everywhere went ballistic. The look was incredibly unflattering, as she had a large bust and small torso. While I felt her pain, I would NEVER go for the high waist. Even if you are a twig, depending on your body proportions, the high waist jean is very difficult to pull off. Add the skinny component, and you have a recipe for disaster. The trend tends to create the flat butt look, which no one wants. What made this trend even worse was the fact that it was frequently coupled with another horrible trend…the bralette. Here’s to hoping we see less of this in 2016.
Have a trend you’d love to keep in 2015?!? Lets hear it!
