Fashion changes extremely fast and keeping up to date is a challenge. We get used to some of the trends and we don’t want to let them go even if some of the things we wear make our entire look seem cheap. The fashion of yesterday can make us look like retro fans whether we mean to or not.
Enlighten is keeping track of the fashion trends, so we’ve made a list of things that are no longer fashionable. And we’ve found out what to replace them with.
1. Narrow glasses

Very narrow sunglasses quickly became a trend — designers and influencers really liked them, but they weren’t good protection from the sun. Today, they are a thing of the past, and big glasses are taking their place. Also, clear geometric lines and classic aviator glasses are very popular today.
2. Bomber jackets

Over the past few years, bomber jackets of different shapes and sizes were really popular. They looked great with sneakers and heels. But in 2020/2021, they are being replaced with more elegant jackets and coats with belts which can also be combined with different shoes.
3. Cropped flared jeans

Cropped flared jeans have been on fashion runways many times, but they are hard to combine with something: they look good with heels or on very tall girls. As an alternative, designers recommend wearing straight jeans in a standard length. Another kind of jeans to wear now are banana-like jeans.
4. Waist bags

When waist bags first appeared in the collections of top designers, people had very mixed feelings about them. Some disliked them, and others were actively implementing them into their look. These bags became very popular because you could put everything you needed in there and free up your hands. This is why backpacks were also extremely popular. But today, waist bags are being replaced by more classic handbags with massive textures and elements, like chains.

Neon colors weren’t popular for a very long time — they only look good in nightclubs. It’s very hard to combine these clothes with something in real life. In the upcoming season, designers prefer calmer colors. For example, Pantone named the colors of the year: olive, cream, and mustard.
6. Plastic shoes and accessories

Plastic sandals, bags, umbrellas, and other accessories should stay in your closet for now. Shoes and bags made of plastic are not only impractical, but also don’t warm you up on a chilly day. Instead, wear massive boots with laces or decorative chains.
7. Too many logos
