Happy New Year!
Another year flew by in like no time. Why is it that time seems to fly so much faster in midlife than it did when we were kids or teenagers eager to move out? Is it because we learned that time is precious and there is less left? Or did we learn the value of time? Have a better time managment now? More distractions that waste our time? Anyhow. Let’s review and enjoy last year’s best looks, and take a look at old trends to say good bye too.
Trends come and go, style lasts
The biggest style trap? A trend that was a trend decades ago. #fashionfauxpas Click To Tweet
Like in all years before there were trends that will be so yesteryear at year later. There have been trends we saw before. Those were the trickiest ones as they nowadays are styled differently than back then in the years when we saw them the first time around.
What to toss
- Baggy hipster beanies
- Super skinny jeans
- Untailored slacks
- Socks with wholes, piled leggings/sweaters/Tees
- Way too big clothing
- White sneakers that are, well not white anymore
