2018 Fashion Trends That Are Totally Over

fashion trends

It’s the nature of trends to come and go—and these fashion fads are definitely on their way out! Are you still wearing these outdated fashion trends?

White Sneakers

The thing about white sneakers is that they’re impossible to keep clean. That might not be such a big deal for famous fashionistas, who can buy a new pair or get their shoes professionally detailed. For the rest of us, this impractical fashion trend is over.

Denim Jackets

The classic denim jacket had its moment, but we’re looking toward more luxe fabrics these days. Instead of a retro denim jacket, try a blazer in velvet or a rich brocade fabric.

Chunky Statement Jewelry

Those giant necklaces that weigh a ton are (thankfully) on their way out. So are the major stacks of bangle bracelets and shoulder-dusting earrings. Instead, we’re wearing minimalist jewelry.

Infinity Scarves

Infinity scarves are pretty much everywhere—which is a good sign that the trend is almost over. We all wore them for a while, but now fashionistas are looking toward large, wide scarves in bold patterns.

Crazy-Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans have been in for a hot minute, and frankly we’re sick of them! The skintight silhouette is super unforgiving. Instead, try going the opposite direction with wide-leg pants or trouser jeans.

Oversized Sunglasses

The bug-eyed sunglasses of the last decade are gradually being traded in for trendier styles. Look for wire-framed glasses with smaller lenses instead of the massive plastic shades.


The retro style that flattered approximately 1.2% of people on the planet, the peplum is finally on the way out. Rejoice, those of us with wider hips!

Millennial Pink

Anything described as “Millennial” should come with a trigger warning at this point. Millennial pink is a pale, rosy shade that showed up everywhere for a while. What’s next? No clue—but keep exploring a personal color palette that flatters you!

Distressed Denim

At some point, the distressed denim trend became a parody of itself. When jeans are more holes than actual fabric, something has to give. Shredded jeans are on their way out at last!

Wordy Shirts

For a while, it seemed like everyone had at least one of those t-shirts with the minimalist list of words on it. They are no longer surprising or interesting, so move on from the style before it gets old enough to be trendy again.

Corset Belts

Kim Kardashian, I’m blaming this one on you. The Kardashian clan loves their waist trainers and super-cinched silhouettes. But the corset belt is out, and a classic wide belt is in.

Fantasy Fashion

We’ve had all the unicorns, rainbows, and mermaids we can stand. We’re officially calling the time of death on childish, fantasy-inspired fashion trends.
