5 Fashion Trends That Are Sticking Around For 2019

There are plenty of 2018 fashion trends we’re ready to ship off for 2019. But before you get too excited, I have to be the bearer of bad news. Everyone’s most hated trend of 2018, biker shorts, is here to stay. Just take one look at the spring runways and it’s clear that the trend made famous by Kourtney Kardashian and her sisters isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Hate the Kardashians all you want, but they legit run the world. What they wear, you wear. So put down the pitchforks and get out your wallets because these are the 2018 fashion trends we can expect to see again in 2019.

1. Frills

Feminine frills have been a trend we’ve seen everywhere in 2018, from swimsuits to romantic prairie dresses. And if 2018 was the year of being “extra” then 2019 is the year of being straight excessive. The more frills the merrier, so go ahead and start adding them to your closet now.

2. Marigold Yellow

Yellow is a statement color that’s here to stay. Sure, neutrals are going to be big for spring, but so is marigold yellow. And yellow is definitely a hell of a lot more fun than some boring camel shade. Plus, it’s going to totally score you more attention, and I know you want your ex’s attention. No, not because you like, want him back or anything! You just called him 30 times last weekend because you were reminding him what he’s missing! I get it.

3. Polka Dots

This is another of the 2018 fashion trends we saw a lot of last summer and spring, and will be seeing a lot more of come 2019. I already told you feminine frills are here to stay, but so are girly polka dots. I mean, it makes sense, everything’s about girl power right now, women supporting women, etc. So, as a woman supporting women myself, I’m here to tell you to keep your polka dot pieces around. Just… don’t go mixing them with your frills. If you do that, you’ll look like an actual child, or possibly confused for someone’s American Girl doll.

4. Scarf Prints

Punchy prints with retro ‘70s vibes already made their way into our closets in 2018. Like, if you don’t already have a scarf belt or scarf print hair accessory, do you even have style at all??? Come 2019, the print will be even bigger in the form of tops, skirts, dresses, and everything in between.

5. Biker Shorts

I already ruined your 2019 by telling you this trend is here to stay. I won’t go on explaining how you should just get on board already, because I’m sure you already hate me enough. Look, bike shorts are comfy, and that alone should be enough for you to want a pair. You don’t have to look like Kourtney Kardashian at Coachella if you don’t want to.

You can just buy a simple black pair, and wear them with basically everything in your closet. Don’t shoot the messenger! Just like, go buy some already, okay? They’re cheap, and you’re going to be happy you did. I’m telling you as your friend.

Trends come and go, but these are the 2018 fashion trends that we can expect to at least stick around for the new year. So go ahead, you have my permission to continue purchasing them now because they won’t be a total waste of money. Okay, maybe they still will be since you’ll only wear them once, get an Insta, and throw them to the back of your closet. BUT, at least if you get them back out to wear to your Grandma’s or something, it wouldn’t be totally unstylish to do so.

5 Fashion Trends We Don’t Want To See In 2019

Since our last article on this subject just a mere few months ago, 2018 hasn’t gotten any better. As if 2018 couldn’t kick us in the nuts any harder, Pete and Ariana called off their engagement, the Keto diet has been deemed unhealthy (bye to my excuse for binge eating cheese), and Apple decided to start letting us know exactly how much time we waste per week just staring at our phones. Awesome. As if these tragic events aren’t excuse enough to just spend the rest of December blacked out until the new year, fashion trends haven’t gotten any less tragic, either. Which is why I’m here writing this article. I’m here to extend our previous list for the worst trends of 2018 and finally put to rest all of 2018’s terrible trends that we’re ready to say “thank, u next” to come 2019. Alright, let’s do this.

1. Tiny Sunglasses

This was a trend that was huge this summer (I mean duh, cause like, sun) but the season has ended and it still hasn’t gone away. Look, I was on board for a minute, bought myself a few cheap cute pairs to get some like-worthy Instas, but after that, c’mon, what’s the point??? They legit do not even do their only job of keeping the sun out of your eyes. Not to mention that if they’re not sitting on the exact right spot on the bridge of your nose then you look like the three blind mice, just like, without your other two blind friends. I’m so done with this impractical trend. Take me back to the early 2000s, the days of Paris and Nicole, and their obnoxiously oversized sunnies. At least with the huge ones I feel glamorous, not like a wannabe Insta model, and I’m actually shielding my eyes from the sun. In fact, with oversized sunnies, I’m shielding like, half of my face from the sun. Uhmmm, who needs expensive eye cream from Sephora when oversized sunnies are #antiaging at its best?

2. Fanny Packs

Now, I don’t know that I want to totally deem fanny packs done. But, I do know for certain that I want to go ahead and classify the trend of wearing your fanny pack across your chest as dunzo. Fanny packs in their original form with their intended use actually do make sense, and are in fact quite practical. However, slung across your chest, they become a useless seatbelt-adjacent accessory that pretty much looks stupid on everyone who isn’t a celebrity. And, tbh, I don’t love it on celebrities, either. Not to mention how extra terrible this trend looks on anyone who is bigger than an A cup. Like, I don’t look like a stylish fashion blogger with a huge fanny pack across my chest. I look like your crazy aunt who probs keeps some hard candies, Xanax, a flask, and some Gas-X in her fanny pack. Not cute.

3. Exaggerated Sleeves

If you have tried consuming an actual meal while wearing a trendy exaggerated sleeve then you know exactly why this trend needs to die with 2018. Not only have I officially dipped them in every sauce imaginable, but I’ve also gotten caught on enough door handles to justify just burning all my big-sleeved tops right now. I’m not going to wait until I dip my sleeve in my festive holiday candle and set my entire being aflame before just deeming this trend done. Over it.

4. Newspaper Boy Hat

If you haven’t Insta’d in a newsboy hat, then there’s no way you’re influencer-level enough to be hawking FabFitFun boxes. I mean, nothing says ~fashion~ like a trendy newsboy hat that everyone and their mom is wearing, right??? Even though I’m deeming this trend over, that’s not to say with the potential Lizzie McGuire reboot that everyone’s been whispering about that this trend may not come right back to bite Gordo in his brown-nosing ass come 2019. I mean, Lizzie wore a newsboy hat so I did. And like, I bought five. So if this trend does want to come back for 2019,  I’m not going to be mad about it.

5. Aggressive Logos

Wearing a Gucci logo T-shirt when you’re a celeb is one thing. But, when everyone including your mailman is wearing one, it’s no longer cool. Because, simply put, it’s no longer exclusive. Like, it’s cool when you’re just so rich that even just your T-shirts are designer. However, it’s not cool when you’re a twentysomething living off of your parents and maxing out your credit cards to do so. Let’s leave logo-mania to Kylie and Stormi in their full matching Fendi sweatsuits, shall we?

Unlike a Real Housewife on a reunion show, I’m aware of my own potential hypocrisy. I may easily deem these trends “done” just to be wearing them again come 2019. I know fashion is cyclical and, who knows, come January 1st, as I rise from my blackout coma state, I may be decked out in a Gucci tracksuit with a fanny pack across my chest and tiny sunnies resting on the bridge of my nose. Only time will tell. Here’s to 2019, betches!

The 2018 Fashion Trends Everyone Needs To Stop Wearing

Fashion trends come and go. F*cking duh. That’s what makes fashion generally so interesting, enticing, and well, fun. You never know what’s going to be worn on the runways or be photographed on a Kardashian next. Really, it should be a drinking game by now. It could be something cute (and normal-looking) like a midi floral dress or it can be something fugly af like Balenciaga’s crocs. Although each year has brought us many unforgettable trends we’d proudly wear out in public, even we can’t lie to ourselves and think all of them are still relevant today. Honestly, some of the things we’re wearing in 2018 are hideous, and quite frankly, like, need to die asap. There’s a reason why we cringe when we look back at our old Facebook pictures. Here are 7 of the worst fashion trends that just need to die for once and for all. I MEAN IT.

1. Jorts and Bike Shorts

I am literally trying to think of one good thing about either of these things and I can’t. I feel like we should just stick to jeans or denim shorts—nothing in between. In fact, anything that covers your bottom half above the knee that isn’t a skirt or a dress should probs just GTFO.

2. Groutfits

Wear this on your couch for hours on end while you nurse a bad hangover, I don’t care. But unless you want to commit social suicide, I advise that you refrain from wearing any gray on gray outfit outside. Not even to the grocery store or local postal office. Just…no.

3. Colored Lenses

Hey guys I missed you ????????????‍♀️❤

A post shared by ???? (@bellahadid) on

IDK we’re just not in the ’70s anymore and while in that decade these may have been poppin’, they’re just no longer necessary in this day and age. Do these even block out the sun? I mean, is there a real purpose for masking your eyes in yellow or bright pink lenses? Someone LMK.

4. Chunky Dad Sneakers

A post shared by Hailey Baldwin (@haileybaldwin) on

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good sneaker that is both trendy and comfortable, but this style has got to leave as quickly as it entered the Instagram sphere. Not only are they super out there, but they’re literally not even cute. Nope. Not even a little, so I can’t even give you the benefit of the doubt.

5. Crocs & Birkenstocks

A post shared by Crocs Shoes (@crocs) on

The resurgence of Crocs and Birks was one of the worst fashion trends we saw this year. I might be incredibly biased; I just really effing hate both of these styles. I feel like they were created for the sole purpose of becoming viral memes and that is it. I don’t see any attractive aspect about either of them, tbh. And like, okay, so they’re comfortable. Great. Wonderful. The thing is, there are plenty of other comfortable shoes that are equally as chic as they are comfy, and for probs half the price.

6. Vinyl/Latex Anything

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

I don’t get how wearing this can be even slightly comfortable, so I guess that reasoning is out the window. Sure, the material accentuates your curves, which is always a plus, and it makes you look like a sexy badass, but unless you’re a model, I bet it makes you feel like an un-sexy sausage. Hard f*cking pass. When I die, bury me in…anything but a latex dress.

7. Transparent Shoes

A post shared by AllDatNoise.com // ADN (@alldatnoise) on

Thanks, but no thanks, Ye. These were cute in the sense that I thought the “trend” would last a good 24 hours, like it was a cold going around or something. It did not think it would last for many months. Feet are weird in general and looking at scrunched toes (painted or not painted) in stilettos is even weirder. Something tells me wearing sweaty plastic heels all night cannot be good or sanitary for your toes. Girl, bye.
