I’m Terminating My Relationship With These 6 Trends—Here’s Why


There comes a time every so often where you have to look at your closet with a discerning eye and decide which trends are worth holding onto and which are destined to be ditched. And to be completely candid, it’s not always easy. If you’re like me and tend to hold onto fashion pieces for ten years too long, then it can be a particularly grueling task. Good news: I’ve been an editor for almost a decade, and it has become my job to deem which trends are in and which simply are ready to go. Thus, I am here to help. 

You may be wondering how often you should get rid of certain trends, and I’ve found the most success through doing this twice a season—meaning twice in the summer, fall, winter, and spring. So, now that we’re in the midst of summer, it’s about time to assess your closet and say goodbye to pieces that have overstayed their welcome. And, as they say: when one door closes, another one opens. Just because you are giving the boot to a few trends only means you have more room in your closet for something new. Ahead, I’m revealing the six trends I am officially terminating along with the six new trends I am embracing with open arms.

Hello, mini skirts. While the ease of a tiered, maxi skirt has its place, it’s time to bare some legs. From bright-colored knit minis to minimal, pleated numbers, mini skirts are officially back.

This past year, multipurpose fashion items have come to the forefront. The silk scarf has become an effortless everyday staple that can be worn over your hair like Cass Dimicco or tied as a sarong or top.

Sweatpants had a really great run this year, but I have to admit, I’m over them. However, I can’t fully say goodbye to the ease of loungewear, therefore, I am investing into knit co-ordinating sets for the rest of the summer. 

This past year, I moved to Miami, and quickly began to embrace the fashion. I began to say goodbye to boring black basics and introduce bold, bright colors, and I haven’t stopped. Up next are my sandals. I’m officially over sleek black slides (they had a good run), but I’m solely focused on fun, bright-colored sandals for now. 

While I am emrbacing Miami’s more vibrant fashion, I am still a minimalist at heart; thus, I live for a simple tank top. This season, it’s all about the asymmetrical, one-shoulder straps—sorry racerbacks. 

I think we all remeber when Jacquemus debuted the micro mini bags—they made a major statement. But, like most trends, they lived their life. This season, I am all about soft, voluminous handbags that make a more quiet statement.

Next up, discover the 6 shoe trends our editors are skipping, and the 6 they are buying.
