Now that 2019 is fully underway, it’s safe to say that there are a few trends from 2018 that have already fady away from the fashion radar. That’s right, some of last year’s hottest trends (ahem, transparent fashion), have already disappeared from our favourite ‘it girls’ Instagram feeds. Read on to see the trends that (thankfully) won’t be sticking around for too much longer this year.
As seen on literally everyone from supermodels to A-list stars, teeny tiny sunglasses were easily the hottest accessory of 2018. But, oh how we’re glad to see them not make a serious comeback. For starters, they don’t protect your eyes from the sun. Secondly, there’s a hotter shade trend this year, and that’s Princess Diana-inspired sporty sunglasses.
2018 was the year we saw 90’s-inspired logos have a major resurgence. Whether you were shopping for fast fashion at Urban Outfitters or from high-end designers like Fendi or Louis Vuitton, logos were sprawled over everything. But like all bold and eye-catching trends, logos started to feel (and look) dated very quickly.
Leave it to Kim Kardashian to make clear, transparent clothes fashionable. But as you can imagine, walking around in plastic boots or carrying your belongings in a completely transparent bag can become rather difficult (and annoying) over time, which is why we’re pleased to see this trend go.
While we’re all for rocking comfy footwear, we’re super stoked that this trend is slowly fizzling out. As seen everywhere from catwalks to street style stars, chunky, dad sneakers were a hot trend for celebrities. But unless you can afford the real deal, you end up looking more frumpy than fashionable.
