Trends We Need To Say Goodbye To This Summer

The summer is finally here! Some trends that have come up in recent years refuse to leave and can still be seen everywhere. But as we all know, in its nature, a trend has an expiration date, and these items below are way past their due date. Here are the trends we need to say goodbye to this summer:

I know these are still very popular and I myself was a part of this trend until not so long ago. But summer 2019 is the time to say goodbye to the tiny sunglasses. Looking back, I can see where Mindy Kaling was coming from when she tweeted: “I think we will regret this tiny sunglasses look.” It’s also important to note that sunglasses are meant to block the sun. There is more and more research that claims tiny glasses are actually damaging your eyes. So, both in regard to your protection and the item itself, I believe this is a trend we need to say goodbye to.

I never really understood this one. Your shoes are an accessory, they are supposed to be delicate and compliment your look. Chunky Sneakers, however, take all the attention away from the clothes and seem clumsy.

Can we please go back to the time where a bag was an actual bag? I don’t accept the “it’s small and comfortable” reasoning, as there are many small bags that are very comfortable. Fanny packs were associated with your father or grandmother for a reason.

I know I featured neon in my list for the hottest summer trends of 2019, but I have some second thoughts. Though it can be seen everywhere, I have found the neon to be too outlandish and not always flattering. When worn as a suit, neon shirt and neon pants, it’s truly a fashionable sin. Don’t get me wrong, Billie Eilish (in the image above), pulls it off perfectly, my point is that not everyone can.


It’s important for me to note, this is my personal opinion. Wear whatever makes you feel good, after all, fashion is subjective.
