Fashion's sphere of influence is always overflowing with stylists, editors, and brand campaigns forecasting up-and-coming trends, as well as reminding us what is currently the It thing to wear. It's always inspiring and interesting to see what's derived from the runway and interpreted to the streets, but what's trending and what stylists actually wear are two very different things. Because as much as we love to imagine a world where everyone feels confident enough to wear naked pants, or boots that quite literally go so far up the body they pass up as pants, it's just not realistic, nor personal.

After assessing the likelihood of what winter fashion trends will be making their way into my daily rotation, I decided to check in with five other stylists to ask them what trends will they be avoiding and what they're excited to wear. I was really curious to learn how other women of influence were considering the trends compared to their personal style. So is it a case of, “do as i say, not as i do”? We get personal on what trends make stylists happy.
