7 Things Selena Gomez Never Wears Anymore

The world is enamored with Selena Gomez (hence her 137 million—and counting—Instagram followers), and that includes an obsession with pretty much everything the It girl wears. Ever since she started working with stylist Kate Young (who also counts Sienna Miller, Dakota Johnson, and Michelle Williams as clients), Selena Gomez's style has become more polished and high-fashion, which ultimately means that there are certain things we've been seeing her wear less and less.

That said, when we sifted through her many outfits over the years (the girl has been famous for a long time), we couldn't help but notice that she's tried a lot of trends at least once. And that's one of the things we love about her. Selena's style is constantly evolving, and she's clearly willing to try new looks. But for now, these are the seven things she seems to have taken a break from.

She Never Wears… 

"Girly" Pieces

While many of her looks are certainly feminine, you won't often find Gomez wearing frills and bows. She favors pieces that are modern and clean both on-duty and off.

Oversize Shades

You won't find Gomez going anywhere near a pair of oversize cat-eye sunglasses these days, despite the fact that they're a trend. Instead, she's donning another current trend—small, colored lens shades.

Crossbody Bags

The convenience of a hands-free crossbody bag is tempting, but Gomez is usually seen carrying a structured satchel in her hand instead (often by Coach, which she's designing a future collection with).

Shoulder Pads

Gomez shared with Vogue recently that shoulder pads are a trend she'll never wear again. On the flip side, she often wears easy, comfortable hoodies and sweatshirts. Can you blame her?
