    1. You have to explain to your co-worker: “These are actually different pants, they just look the same.”

    Serial black pant syndrome is real, guys.

    Instead Try: Printed Pants

    2. You take a “Come As You Are” party invite literally.

    File this under questionable behavior: you were wearing pajama pants, so you came in pajama pants.

    Instead Try: Silk Pants

    3. You have a flip-flop tan line.

    A pedicure run does not a tan line make. If you’re not at the beach, pool, or nail salon, skip the flip-flops.

    Instead Try: Sandals
    ​Joie Sable Sandals ($150)

    4. Sometimes you wear a sports bra to work, because comfort.

    Is anyone really going to know the difference? Yes, probably.

    Instead Try: A Soft Cup Bra
    ​Eberjey Pima Goddess Soft Cup Plunge Bra ($35)

    5. You’ve been overheard saying: “It’s flowy, not frumpy.”

    Sometimes, it’s the same thing.

    Instead Try: A Structured Jacket
    ​Pim + Larkin Madeline Jacket ($79)

    6. When buying a new piece, your first thought is: does this go with leggings?

    Leggings are a farce of a pant. There, we said it.

    Instead Try: Pants With Stretch
    ​J. Brand Aoki Low Rise Cropped Pants ($198)

    7. You still have your bucket hats and baby tees from the ‘90s in your closet, just in case.

    There are awesome trends from that decade that are still relevant. These aren’t them.

    Instead Try: A Halter Dress
    ​Reformation Eve Dress ($198)

    8. Your closet has a serious case of depression.

    It’s blacks and grays as far as the eye can see.

    Instead Try: A Colorful Top
    ​Collective Concepts Tile Print Cami ($54)

    9. Your entire after-hours wardrobe consists of a single LBD.

    We know it’s sad, it told us so. Get it some friends already.

    Instead Try: A Statement Cocktail Dress
    ​Parker Leona Dress ($253)

    10. The last trend you tried was a tiered prairie skirt.

    We agree, Sienna Miller did look cute in it in 2004, but can move on from this together.

    Instead Try: A Fluted Skirt
    10 Crosby Derek Lam Skirt With Ruffle ($325)
