While I can’t claim to get it right 100% of the time, I will say that when it comes to fashion trends, I like to think I have a pretty good intuition as to which are rising and which may be on their way out. This, for me at least, is especially worth considering when it comes to trending items you have to actually go out and buy as opposed to stying pieces you already own. So if you’re looking to purchase some stylish sale finds right now or invest in something to wear for seasons to come, seeing as we’re already in December, it helps to think about what you won’t be that into anymore come 2019—and I have a hunch as to just what fads those may be. To read about the trends I don’t think will make it past New Year’s Eve and, of course, shop the ones I’m betting will take their place, simply continue on below.
