7 Trends We Wish We Tried in 2016
So many trends, so little time. Every season we’re presented with a slew of new and exciting trends — be it a strikingly modern silhouette, bold print or a totally unexpected way to style a tried-and-true piece — but with budgets to consider, there are only so many we can test drive. This year we dedicated our closets and hard-earned cash to glam faux fur coats with ‘70s flair, backless loafers, daytime metallics and velvet, letting things like “lampshading” and the crazy Vetements obsession pass us by. Below, we’re recapping the seven fashion trends we didn’t try this year. #noregrets
1. Lampshading: AKA rocking a pair of over-the-knee boots with a broad hemline that hits above the top of the boots, leaving a sliver or exposed thigh. Sure — it’s relatively tame as far as trends go, but channeling home decor isn’t typically something we strive for when pulling together an ensemble. Needless to say, we took a pass on this one, even when style goddesses like Chiara Ferragni, Kate Moss and Kendell Jenner busted it out on the regular.
