“FASHION comes and goes but style lasts forever” is the famous quote spoken by designer Coco Chanel.
And the fashion icon couldn’t be more right.
Trends do come and go and but not all of them are stylish, and that’s certainly true of some of this seasons biggest trends.
Recently there have been a few trends that in a couple of years time we’ll look back on and think – ‘what was I thinking?’
As well as trends that have been worn to death and become dated and unstylish.
Here, Fabulous’ Fashion Editor Clemmie Fieldsend, reveals the trends she won’t be wearing this season.
I don’t think I could bare the stares on my daily commute, day at the office or even on a night out if I was wearing sparkly pants.
Hopefully this is one of those flash in the pan trends that doesn’t catch on or resurface for a long time.
But whilst the A-listers look amazing on the red carpet in their voluminous frocks, I’d look like a loo roll lady in the supermarket aisle in a high street version.
Don’t get me wrong I think these leading ladies look amazing, but it’s not a trend that is wearable for a mere mortal such as myself.
FLORAL MIDI DRESS
The jeans and a nice top is a fashion recipe you can always rely on, but in recent years everyone has fallen head over heels with floral midi dresses.
Usually accompanied with a knot headband and court shoes or wedges the look is so overused and naff, and I wouldn’t be caught dead in it.
Aside from being too common, I’m a lover of all things plain so busy prints just are not my style.
Noughties nostalgia has been plaguing the catwalk and high street for the past few years and I’ll never be on board.
I remember low waisted jeans, crop tops and rah rah skirts from the first time around and looking back at the trends paired with hair mascara and crimping it really wasn’t a great time for style.
However, this year the nineties has had a strong resurgence which is more sleek and simple – two characteristics that won’t ever date.
Models like Bella Hadid and brands like Givenchy have made wearing triple denim a trend.
Otherwise known as the Canadian tuxedo, the look has made a huge comeback this year but all I have in my head is Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake’s matching looks – which in my mind was never and never will be a good look. If you’re brave enough and bold enough to give the look a spin then good for you but I won’t be wearing a denim cowboy hat any day soon.
