It is the end of a year, which means it is the time to reflect on the last 12 months and consider what we want to change in the upcoming year. When it comes to fashion, 2015 had a lot of interesting trends that were actually wearable. Crop tops continued to be a must-have items in everyone’s wardrobes and on the red carpet. The 1970’s gave the much-loved 1990’s some competition for most popular decade. Skinny scarves, chokers and lace-up flats were covetable accessories. As much as we loved a lot of the trends, 2016 is a time for change and we are ready for something fresh.
There are the trends that we have had our fill of:
1. Jillian Lucas: FringeFringe may be fun to play with, but Jillian has had her fill of fringe. Shes states, “No more fringe please. I’m so done with it. It’s had it’s moment and it’s time to move on.”
Crop tops have been everywhere for a long time and Sara is o-v-e-r them. She explains, “I hate crop tops with everything I have.” She doesn’t need to elaborate more than that.
I agree with Sara about the crop tops, but one red carpet trend that I do not want to see in 2016 is illusion dresses. They were cool when people first started wearing them, but they have been done to death. They feel tired, and even when celebs try to “out naked each other,” it still feels old.
Ugly shoes were a surprising trend this year thanks to normcore, but it isn’t those that Sara has a problem with. She dislikes their furry cousins. She says, “[I am over] furry shoes. Because we are not Muppets.” No we are not.
5. Kristyn Filip: “Naked” DressesLike me, Kristyn is over the whole I’m-wearing-a-dress-but-do-not-look-like-I-am thing. She says, “I feel like I’ve been saying this for years, but I am beyond tired of ‘naked’ dresses. At this point, they’re blah. I’d love to see a resurgence of bright and bold colors and fabrics on the red carpet in 2016.”

6. Elizabeth Licata: SuedeSuede has been giving leather some competition thanks to the 1970’s revival. However, Liz is surprised to say that she has had her fill. She explains, “I might actually be over suede. I never thought I’d say that! But I think I have suede overload at this point.”
Kelsey chose a shoe option that she never wanted to see come back: Birenstocks. She explains, “As I have been since the moment they made their horrific return, I am over Birkenstocks. Always have been, always will be. (Refer back to this in ~10 years when I have Birkenstocks.)”
Cutouts are another trend that feels very stale to me, just like crop tops and naked illusion dresses. If we could actually ban those three from the red carpet in 2016, it would be brilliant.
For Sara’s third trend she is over, she chose fringe. She says, “I think I’m actually alone on this one, because fringe probably won’t go anywhere, but I hate it. I think it makes everything look cheap and costume-y.” She’s definitely not alone considering Jillian also picked it.
Kelsey didn’t choose her second option because she is bored with the trend. She selected it because she has yet to figure out how to make it work for her. She says, “I am also, sadly, somewhat over leather leggings. Not because I don’t like them–because I absolutely love how they look when done right–but because after about two years of searching and trying on I haven’t found one single pair that a. Fits me properly and b. Looks good. 2016 resolution: Just give up on the dream. Until of course I find a new pair I haven’t tried yet…”
