Three Trends We Hope Aren’t Here to Stay for Long

By: Cristina Martin

Spring and Summer are right around the corner, even though it may not feel like it in New York. We can’t wait to shed off all our layers and show off what we are actually wearing under all these coats. Although the spring season allows for the streets to be our runway, we are not so excited to see some of these current trends. They are here to stay, but hopefully not for long.

  1. Dad Sneakers

    Dad sneakers, who came up with this?! We personally just don’t understand this trend. There are so many cute sneakers out there. Even Balenciaga can’t tempt us to surrender to this trend. Why are people giving into this trend? Who really wants to dress like their Dad?

  2. Plastic

    This is another trend we really don’t understand. Plastic was once seen as a “cheap” alternative, but somehow it has evolved from or Diet Coke bottles to designer fashion. We understood the plastic handbag trend. (Guilty of owning the Ted Baker plastic toat.) Why incoporate plastic into your clothes? Doesn’t that make you hot?! (No punn intended)
    Plastic? Maybe not so fantastic…

  3. Sheer

    Okay, okay, we were guilty of following this trend as well when it was popular in the early 2000s. However, we don’t want to see it resurface. It is exhusting to have to find the perfect undergarment to make your sheer look “appropriate.” We don’t have time to find the perfect cardigan, or shop for camisoles in 100 colors. No thank you. We just want to wear one piece of clothing and go about our day.

Trends That Will Stick Until 2018

Guest Feature: FASHinNY

Fashion trends, similar to the weather are something we can predict. I’ve often found that the best time to buy for the upcoming season, is at the end of the previous one!. As we end Winter and move into Spring we already have an idea what will be in style for next Fall! Having this knowledge can help you narrow down your search, and allow you to buy in advance, while things are available for major discounts, getting more bang for your buck.

Here’s why being in the know is crucial:

  1. Knowing what will be in next season allows you to buy more universal pieces that you can wear in the following season as well
  2. SALES! As the spring line becomes available at full price, fall and winter pieces go on major clearance! By knowing upcoming trends, you can purchase pieces that are on sale now that you can start wearing again next Fall.  

 

So what trends are in the forecast?
