We all hear that little voice in our heads that pipes up as we gaze longingly into our wardrobes, telling us we have nothing to wear. Deep down, however, we know this isn’t the case.
Most of us only wear a small percentage of our clothes. The rest? They seem to blend together to become a collective of forgotten items, only to be remembered about when an influencer you follow wears a dress similar to the one you bought a couple of years back or when you spot a runway trend that taps into something you already own.
There’s no denying that fashion is cyclical, and as such, we’ve learnt the hard way never to cast aside the items we once loved. Not only will they most likely come back into style, but you never know when you might happen across a more current way to wear them. So in the interest of thinking ahead to the new 2022 season, our editors have come together to reveal the trends they personally won’t be investing in. Instead, they are revealing the pieces they’d rather spend their wages on for the year ahead.
From the once-iconic It shoes to the casual staple that constantly divides opinion, scroll below to see the dated fashion trends we wouldn’t recommend buying into at this point in time. Do stash them if you already own them, though, as they’ll likely come back around again. Or if you love them, don’t let our personal opinion stop you!
