Let’s look back on the bad fashion and street style trends from 2014, so we can move forward and enjoy the fabulous trends 2015 will bring us!
Radiant Orchid: This beautiful lavender hue was the color of 2014, but alas, it never really caught on. You may catch glimpses of it in patterns as we move into 2015, but don’t plan on a head-to-toe look of this hard-to-wear color. Au revoir!
Top Knot Buns: What were those weird, round buns sitting on the top of girl’s heads?! Those horrible buns were usually achieved by wrapping hair around a foam donut, wha?????? Look, if you need to insert a gross piece of foam in your hair to create a hairstyle, there is something wrong. Stay away from the foam donut top knot bun! Buh-bye!
Studs: The heavy metal, studded and spike look is done. Leave them in the back of your closet for the next Metallica concert you attend. Otherwise, they have no place in your wardrobe in 2015. Ouch!
Dark Nails: Dark nail were all the rage in 2014, but for 2015, medium colors are hot to trot. Steer clear of black nails and look for colors and metallics to paint on those nails.
Undefined Waists: The day of not wearing a belt through those belt-loops is gone. If you have belt loops, wear a belt! Also, belt everything you can; dresses, coats etc. Belt it!
Marsala: This beautiful, deep red hue is the color of 2015. Look for it in prints and alone. Love it!
Shades of Blue: Multiple shades of blue are all the rage for 2015. Look for an oceanic color palette on warm spring days. So calm and cool, love that!
Fringe: This boho-chic trend started to gain momentum in 2014, but for 2015, it is all the rage! Let out your inner hippie or flapper, it’s time to fringe!
Comfort Shoes: Flat sandals, comfort sandals and flatforms are all the rage for 2015. Look for them worn with socks for a little sass and a fashion forward look. If this isn’t your thing, don’t fret, your pointed toe pumps are still hotter than hot 😉
Drawstring Handbags: The hot “IT” bag for 2014 is not relinquishing it’s #1 spot for the 2015 year. Look for drawstring handbags in all price points, from all brands/designers. It’s the “IT” factor.
