Something about me: I love trends. With each new season, I want to immediately fill my closet with all the biggest ones. But I prefer to not let my wardrobe do harm to my bank account, and for that reason, I try to be judicious. That said, there are certain trends this year that I admit to going a little overboard with, but I’m clearly not alone in that. The eight trends I’m calling out below have become oversaturated at this point, both in my closet and in general.
Here’s the thing—when a trend is oversaturated (meaning practically everyone is selling it and wearing it, including me), I typically take it as my cue to stop buying it. That said, I’m not going to stop wearing these trends anytime soon. I’ve simply realized that it’s time to make room for some other fresh trends in my closet, which I’m also naming below. Scroll on to find out which trends I’m forcing myself to stop buying and which new ones I’m investing in now.
I love animal prints of any species, but I think we can all agree that we probably have enough leopards and zebras roaming around our closets. For now, I’m investing more heavily in floral prints with dark backgrounds, which are trending heavily for fall.
Hair bows are the new hair clips, folks. Not sure how you feel about this? Do as I did and start with a silky black bow that’s on the smaller side.
Tie-dye is still very much a trend and made multiple appearances on the F/W 19 runways, but if you’re growing a little tired of it and still want a fun, eye-catching look, Lamé is also trending for fall.
Truth be told, I never really jumped on the belt-bag bandwagon. I just admire them from a distance. That’s probably part of the reason I’m excited about the return of shoulder and frame bags.
Neon is far too polarizing to be a long-lasting trend, in my opinion. Instead, I’m filling my wardrobe with shades of green this season (but especially those of the pistachio variety).
The bike-short trend has lasted far longer than I thought it would in the first place, and it’s certainly not dead yet, but I’m seeking more polished options like shorts suits for fall.
I love anklets and have been wearing multiple at a time all summer. While I’m currently contemplating wearing them over my ankle boots this fall, I’m also making room in my jewelry box for chunky chain necklaces, which is fall’s number one jewelry trend.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to wear many of the strappy sandals I’ve collected once the weather cools down, but I plan on keeping square-toe ankle boots on heavy rotation.
