It's been 30 years since Anna Wintour first took the helm at American Vogue, inspiring countless fashion lovers with each and every issue. But while I love her bold cover choices and expert eye for editorials, I especially revel in her personal style choices. Whenever fashion month rolls around, I zero in on what Wintour wears and take plenty of mental notes—can you blame me?

Since she's been in the public eye for three decades, it's only natural that her style has evolved over the years. Looking back through old photos, I realized that there were a few key looks that Wintour has completely erased from her modern closet. For instance, have you seen Wintour in head-to-toe, unembellished black pieces anytime recently? Didn't think so. She prefers her signature colorful prints nearly 365 days a year these days. Scroll down to see four trends Wintour doesn't wear anymore and what she's replaced them with.

Next up: the only boot trend that matters, according to Anna Wintour.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
