2015 had been an amazing year in terms of fashion. We have seen the strong comeback of the much-loved denim skirt in various cuts from A-line to pencil skirts, the feminine bardot trend, chic turtlenecks, and so much more! But as Heidi Klum always says, "In fashion one day you're in, and the next day you're out." And here are the ten trends you should say Auf Wiedersehen to in 2016.

1 Super ripped jeans

Distressed jeans are a cute way to spice up your look, but if your jeans have more holes than denim to it, then it might be time for you to ditch them. Instead opt for an always flattering bootcut pant, classic skinny jeans, or a '70s flare.

2 Floral crowns

While floral crowns are cute and dreamy–unless you're attending a party, going to a music festival, or having a mini photo shoot with your friends, you may want to put the floral crown down.

3 Oversized proportions

Say bye to anything oversized this year because 2016 is all about embracing your curves, emphasizing waistlines, and showing off your figure in classic, womanly-styled pieces.

4 Ear cuffs

Ear cuffs were a great way to channel an edgy look and still maintain your femininity, but it's time to move on from the ear cuff trend and play with oversized heirloom style earrings for maximum bling instead.

5 Flash tattoos

It was great while it lasted, but it's time to grow up and stop playing modern native warriors and princesses.


6 Bubble nails

The Internet went crazy when women from all over the world went nuts for the bubble nail craze trend, but trust us, you're better off without fifty layers of glue on top of your fingernails.

7 Kylie Jenner lip craze

We're all for playing with beauty looks, but never to the point of injecting lip fillers, or hurting oneself to have plump lips like Kylie Jenner's. This trend shouldn't move on to the next year, and shouldn't have started to begin with.

8 Bucket hats

Bucket bags are cute and trendy, but bucket hats? Not so much anymore. Opt for a preppy beret, a cute beanie, or a girly, floppy hat instead.

9 Denim leggings

We're not talking about jeggings, but stretchy pocketless leggings in jean form. Wearing a pair of denim leggings as a replacement for your jeans is like adding salt to the wounds left by the wearing-leggings-as-a-pants trend.

10 Dresses over pants

Unlike tights or leggings, pants can be bulky and may not be the best piece to pair your dress with. If you're looking for a fresh way to wear your favorite dress, opt to wear your dress over a preppy white button down, or a white T-shirt for a more youthful look.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
