12 Trends That Have Disappeared From Our IG Feeds Since Last Summer

As editors, there’s definitely a proximity advantage to fashion brands and designers to understand the ebb and flow of trends. But have you ever tried Instagram stalking? We can tell you that it works wonders.

With this in mind, we scrolled back to last summer on our feeds to get a sense of the trends that dominated in 2017, as well as the ones that are slowly taking over in 2018. Turning to 13 our of favorite style stars, we kept track of the pieces they once wore a lot of and have since faded a bit more into the background.

Perhaps it’s not quite the same as seeing the freshest fashion trends walk the runway of Fashion Week, but we happen to think it’s a solid way to learn which looks are on the upswing. Keep scrolling for a dozen examples.
