Outdated fashion trends and their best alternatives

Purging your closet every once in a while could be a great thing to do. Freeing your wardrobe of pieces that are no longer serving any purpose or you never really got to wear can help make space for other items, allowing you to revamp your wardrobe. It’s better to donate those pieces than storing them in the wardrobe, this way, you can make space for items that are trending at the moment and worth adding to your wardrobe. Every fashion trend comes with an expiry date, one moment it’s trending, and the other moment it’s replaced by a new trend.

There are a couple of cool fashion trends that are gaining heat at the moment; you can consider adding them to your rotation to make your outfits look on-trend and fashion-forward. If you think your wardrobe could use some purging and addition of new and trendy items, then you have come to the right place. Ahead, we have rounded up a list of some outdated fashion trends and their best alternatives.

 

Outdated: Rigid denim
Trending: Baggy jeans

Rigid denim has had its time, but sadly it’s time to retire it. They don’t feel relevant at the moment, and baggy jeans, on the other hand, are busy garnering the limelight. Be it runways, street fashion, or celebrities, baggy jeans are taking the fashion world by storm, and they are all the rage at the moment. You will never regret owning this piece; it looks effortlessly chic and fashion-forward. You can create some of the comfiest and stylish outfits with a pair of baggy jeans.

 

Outdated: Neutral hues
Trending: Shades of pink

Although neutrals are fail-safe options, and you really can’t go wrong with them, it’s time to take a break from them and include a dose of colors in your wardrobe. We cannot think of a better color than shades pink. If you didn’t know, pink is expected to be one of the biggest color trends of the year, and that’s the reason we are spotting them pretty much everywhere. This color will help breathe some fresh air into your wardrobe, additionally; it will add a pop of color to your outfits and make them look more striking. Also, you don’t have to remove every neutral piece from your wardrobe, just take out those that are no longer serving any purpose.

 

Outdated: Basic leggings
Trending: Elevated leggings

Leggings have been serving us for years, they are definitely one of the most functional pieces we can have in our wardrobes, and what if we told you that you can wear your leggings to other places than just the gym? That would be amazing, right? Well, consider yourself lucky, as elevated leggings are trending hard this year. Reinvented leggings aren’t designed for gyms; in fact, they are designed to be paired with your everyday outfits. From stirrup and split hems to printed and cropped styles, leggings in different and more elevated versions are trending really hard this year.

 

Outdated: Nap dresses
Trending: Naked pieces

While we won’t deny having a soft spot for nap dresses, we personally feel that their reign has come to an end, and there are better items in the market that could take their place and add more flair to our wardrobes. Naked pieces are pretty huge this year. Basically, skin is in, and it is a result of that only that we are spotting a lot of naked pieces in the market that focus on showing some skin such as micro miniskirts, sheer dresses, cutout pieces, etc.

 

Outdated: Chunky sneakers
Trending: Utility boots

Chunky sneakers managed to garner a lot of attention in such a short span of time, but it’s time for us to retire them. Replacing them this year is the utility boots, they are a fresh take on shoes that look cool and comfortable at the same time. This shoe silhouette is sure to attract a lot of attention in the coming months, therefore, make sure to get your hands on them before the best pairs get sold out.
