No One's Wearing These 11 Trends Anymore

Allyson Payer

At times this year, it seemed like the world was more interested in what not to wear than what to wear. For instance, we covered the shoe trends to toss aside every season, the type of leggings no one is wearing anymore, and the denim that’s been eclipsed by more forward styles. For the purpose of highlighting the “over” trends that have made way for the most important trends of 2016, we went through our coverage of all the ones people stopped wearing in favor of new, fresher trends.

If you’re wondering what people will still be wearing in 2017, rest assured the trends everyone favored instead of the stale ones are still as cool as can be and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. But as soon as they’re no longer a thing, we’ll undoubtedly be the first to tell you.

Keep scrolling to review the trends that people stopped wearing in 2016, and watch this space in 2017 as we’ll naturally continue to stay abreast of the trends that fashion girls are no longer wearing.
