Looking for an out-of-this-world trend? Keep looking, because we’re tossing galactic prints back on a rocket and into the cosmos far far away from us.
Who knows how this whimsical style quickly found its way in our wardrobes. Maybe it was the Urban Outfitters, hipster-cool, fanaticism that drew us in, or maybe on some subconscious level, Miley Cyrus’s performance with a talking space cat further fueled our need for intergalactic space attire.
Either way, let’s ditch the galactic gimmicks–best suited for our pre-teen counterparts–and rejoin the modern world with contemporary, structural pieces…think asymmetrical hemlines or even peplums.
It’s time to pull out your scissors and cut this trend out of your wardrobe (and life) for good!
Do you feel nostalgic for high school when eyeing this slashed tops and tees trend? That’s not a good sign. What started as a DIY approach to adding–dare I say–pizzazz to tee shirts, the slashed tee trend slowly gained notoriety when spotted on the runway from high-end designers by the likes of McQueen and Alexander Wang. This style morphed to runway chic as more and more fashion connoisseurs started incorporating slashes into dress designs in 2009…I repeat…2009!
Luckily this style died out on the runways, but it hasn’t quite made it’s finale from mall couture. While shopping on Melrose last weekend, I was sad to spot this trend on women strutting their stuff down the streetwalk and it was still present in stores. They weren’t even in the sale section!
Not only has this DIY look transitioned to day-to-day casual wear, it’s also made it rounds as club wear, giving off outdated vibes before hitting the dancefloor.
Let’s give this look it’s final notice. Slashed tops, tees, and dresses are getting the PINK SLIP!
With snowstorms perilously making their way across the country–stealthily avoiding sunny SoCal–it’s no shocker that fashionistas everywhere are bundling up in soft-to-the-touch cashmeres, cozy cable knits, and warm wool blends. Seemingly easy to toss on layers: styling print button-downs with embroidered cardigans or even opting for a tough-as-nails leather look, there’s one miss that a lot of people seem to fall victim to: the tribal poncho!
Pink Slip Fashion wouldn’t be surprised if the wide ankle cuff trend were started by Lindsay Lohan herself. Now that we’ve hopefully grown from our fashion crimes, we can shake down our shoe wardrobes and lock up these pumps for good. Ok…ok enough with the metaphors.
My guess is your style probably has a checkered past. With the resurgence of gargantuan black & white square patterns on runways this past Spring 2013, it’s easy to see how this checkers fashion trend quickly gathered speed in both high fashion circles and street style cultures. However, it’s time to call checkmate on this game and switch to a pattern that doesn’t make us look like walking chessboards.
Pink Slip Fashion is back this week with another ghastly trend that’s getting the ax!
Though we’re writing from “still sunny” California while the rest of the country is probably facing crippling blizzards or hail storms, that doesn’t mean we aren’t experts at determining what’s in and what’s out when it comes to fur!
So kick back in your fuzzy slippers with warm cocoa in hand and read below why colored fur is getting the PINK SLIP.
Hi-Lo Dresses Can Hitch the Next Available Ride (Out of our Closets)
Holiday season is upon us. And though we may be stressed with decorating, gift shopping, and spending quality time with members of the family we may normally avoid, like Aunt Sally with the weird cheese breath, finding the perfect holiday dress should not be on this list of avoided activities.
Leggings are hard enough to wear when they don’t feature a blaring print. And even though these camo leggings for women sport the overt “I hide it all” label in its name, these patterned leggings do everything BUT camouflage.
As ombre shades fade from light to dark (or vice versa), the time has come to let this once drooled over trend fade from our wardrobes.
Pink Slip Fashion recommends experimenting with color changing hues via colorblock. This trend is still going strong and you can find a myriad of bold, divided colors on statement clutches, dresses, and straight leg pants.
Pink Slip your platforms and high heels this season; they’re going out of style! Get low with your sweet and chic flats in all varieties instead: pretty pointy toes, bow-topped patent leather picks, lattice pattern peepers and many more.
