With the return of bell sleeves, velvet bottoms, shirt dresses, and chokers, 2016 was undoubtedly a game-changing year in the fashion scene. But with the comeback of so many distinctive fashion trends comes the exit of a few others. Below, we're listing down the fashion trends 2017 could do without! So read on and be on your way to a more fashionable 2017!

Ultra-skinny jeans

Skip out on skintight jeans this 2017! Instead, opt for a pair of hip mom or boyfriend jeans for a casual, yet on-point look for the day.


Bandanas can add a unique flair to any outfit, but this season we believe it's finally time to move past this trend! Swap your rugged bandanas for fedoras, floppy hats, berets, and fun jewelry instead.

Furry moccasins 

Up your style game this upcoming year by ditching the furry footwear and replacing them with ultra-cute suede booties. 

Gladiator sandals

This bold footwear is clearly a fashion statement, but a pair of gladiator sandals can sometimes look a little bit distracting and over the top, too. 


Excessive fringe

Unless you're headed to a music festival, step away from the overused trend of fringe-on-fringe!

Waterfall skirts

Switch these out for a trendier button up or corduroy skirt for a fashion-forward #OOTD.

Tattoo chokers

Despite the tattoo chokers emerging as a Tumblr must-have in the recent years, velvet and suede chokers are a slightly trendier option to follow along with this 2017. 

Wedge sneakers

Adding a slight heel defeats the whole purpose of sneakers being a comfortable footwear. Head back to the classic all-white sneaker trend for maximum versatility and comfort!

Acid wash denim

While rocking a pair of acid wash jeans can be fun, it can also look messy sometimes. Opt for a dark washed pair of jeans for a more versatile and chicer option.

Underwire dresses

Silk slip dresses are much more on trend than your go-to underwire dresses this 2017. Wear yours with a cute white tee underneath and you have yourself an easy model off-duty look in a snap!
