There always comes a time when you have to look at your wardrobe with a critical eye and decide which trends are worth sticking to and which are meant to be abandoned. It’s not always easy to be completely honest. If you’re like me and tend to hang onto fashion pieces for 10 years too long, then it can be an especially arduous task. Good news: I’ve been an editor for nearly a decade and it has become mine job to recognize which trends are in and which are simply ready to use. So I’m here to help.
You may be wondering how often you should get rid of certain trends, and I have had the greatest success doing this twice a season i.e. twice in summer, fall, winter and spring. Now that we’re in the middle of summer, it’s time to take a look at your closet and say goodbye to items that have passed their receipt. As they say, when one door closes, another opens. The fact that you are giving up some trends just means you have more space in your closet for new things. Upfront, I reveal the six trends that I’m officially ending, along with the six new trends that I embrace with open arms.
