The Trends To Ditch & Try In 2019

That usually starts with purchasing the major upcoming trends and updating some old silhouettes. However, I also want to be practical about my wardrobe. Since it can be difficult to keep up with the ever-changing trends, I typically only pick out a few that really stand out to me – and align with my modern, edgy style. As I’m adding fresh, trend forward pieces to my collection, I also use this time to cull through and remove the pieces that are on their way out. Now that we’ve started a new year, I wanted to share the trends from 2018 that you should leave behind, plus a few new ones that are worth embracing now.

Trends to Ditch

Le Specs

Tiny Sunglasses

Tiny sunglasses were a fun tribute to the 90s, but it's time to trade them in for something more practical, such as oval and visor shapes.

Rag & Bone

Fanny Pack

The popularity of fanny packs may have been at an all-time high last year, but they'll be slowing down with the influx of new bag silhouettes and belt trends.

Alice McCall

Sheer Fashion

Barely there designs are still going to be a major trend this year, but we'll be seeing less sheer, risqué skirts and dresses. I'm excited for refined airy pieces that are wearable and chic.

PVC Fashion

As the demand for sustainability increases in 2019, I anticipate that transparent, plastic pieces will slowly phase out.

You no longer need neon pumps or flashy blazers to make a statement. I'm swapping out neon brights for muted, earthy tones.

Steve Madden

Dad Sneakers

This street style trend was easily the most controversial of 2018. I definitely think it's time to replace this hard-to-wear style for sleek, athletic trainers.

Trends to Try


Animal Print

The rise of animal print started with leopard, but it doesn't stop there in 2019. This is the perfect time to dabble into other animal prints such as python, tiger stripes, and cowhide.

Sam Edelman

Kitten Heels

Kitten heels are perhaps one of the most underrated shoes right now. Get ahead on this trend and give your winter looks a stylish flair with kitten heel boots.

Crochet Fashion

I'm loving crochet as a more casual and wearable alternative to lace. This top will be perfect for any resort vacation you might have planned this winter.

Alice + Olivia

Puff Sleeves

Off-the-shoulder and cold shoulder pieces get ushered out of the spotlight as puff sleeves come onto the scene. They may be nothing new, but shoulders are getting a whole lot puffier this season.

Endless Rose

Budget Puff Sleeve Top

I'm loving this look with square necklines - it's the perfect piece to take into spring and summer.

Prairie Dress

The western revival is one 2018 trend that definitely won't be going away. Get a head start on it with this long-sleeved, slightly bohemian dress.

Throwback Trainers

Throwback sportswear will be huge this season and these trainers are an essential part of my everyday wardrobe. It's one of Nike's co-founder Bill Bowerman's first designs!
