I hate to break this to you, but winter is really just beginning. The temps are about to drop even further, and thus I highly recommend doing a little winter closet clear-out. Perhaps you picked up some trendy items you never got around to wearing, or maybe there’s a long-cherished piece that just no longer works in your wardrobe—now’s the time to add them to the donation pile.

While you might be clearing out your closet of some pieces, here’s the good news: There are some really cool trends on our radar for the season. Now’s the perfect time to test out rising trends and put some of the biggest pieces of the moment into your rotation. From the color that’s everywhere to the cool bag everyone’s carrying to the print fashion girls can’t stop wearing, we’ve picked out the most stylish pieces to wear now.

Go on to find out the trends to consider retiring (and the ones to start wearing instead!), and then shop our favorite pieces. And don’t forget—at the end of the day, you should really just wear what you love and feel the most comfortable in.

CONSIDER DITCHING Millennial Pink
WEAR Chocolate Brown

Swap out Millennial Pink for rich shades of chocolate brown, the color we’re seeing everywhere right now.

CONSIDER DITCHING Bodycon Dresses
WEAR Billowy Dresses

The proportions for dresses are changing right now. The more billowy and flowy, the better.

CONSIDER DITCHING Black Leather
WEAR Colored Leather

Leather clothing isn’t exactly new or groundbreaking, but colored versions feel particularly fresh. Here are some pieces to work into your wardrobe this winter.

CONSIDER DITCHING Wedge Boots
WEAR Wide-Shaft Boots

The wide-shaft boot silhouette is a cool, modern take on the knee-high. Wear yours with everything from jeans to trousers to dresses.

CONSIDER DITCHING Micro Bags
WEAR Oversize Bags

Micro bags that don’t even fit your phone aren’t the most practical; oversize totes, on the other hand, will continue to rise in popularity.
