Cardigans that used to be popular in the 1960s, dresses with large prints from the 1980s, and flared jeans from the 1970s are things we see on the world’s runways today. Most experts agree that each fashion cycle lasts an average of 15 years. People need about 2 years to notice the trend, after that it will gain momentum for the next 5 years and after becoming popular it will peak for the next 5 years. Finally, its popularity will start decreasing and the process of fading away will take 3 years. As time passes, the trend might come back. There are several common trends that are on their way out and knowing what these are will help you avoid mistakes while creating the perfect look.

Enlighten has collected a set of trends that are no longer popular and that you should try to avoid and we can’t wait to share them with you.

1. An abundance of rings


According to jewelry etiquette, the total number of rings on a woman’s hands shouldn’t exceed 3, including the wedding ring. A maximum of 2 pieces of jewelry is allowed on one hand. Keep in mind that it’s recommended to wear jewelry with diamonds, emeralds, and rubies after 5 p.m.

2. Sweaters and dresses made of cheap knit fabric


Bad quality knitwear stretches out and pills easily. Moreover, the bad quality material can cause an allergic reaction on the skin. The ideal ratio is 20-30% synthetic and 70-80% natural fiber.

3. Tan hosiery


It’s better to just not wear hosiery in a tan skin color in the summer because they don’t look aesthetically pleasing. Keep in mind one rule – nude color tights should be about a tone darker than your skin. Full-figured girls should opt for black tights – it will make their legs look slimmer.

It is possible to wear tights with summer shoes but it’s important to choose the right color and texture. But remember, it’s never OK to wear any tights with open-toed summer shoes.

4. Lacy underwear with tight blouses

Some women think that wearing lacy underwear under tight clothes is sexy. But this is wrong. Smooth lingerie in a nude color is a much better choice. Also, say no to wearing silicone straps with open shoulder dresses and instead opt for bras with no straps.

5. Absence of accessories

Accessories can complement your image and give it a unique charm. You can use hats, scarves, belts, clutches, watches, or imitation jewelry. Accessories can be the same color as your clothes or they can contrast with them. When opting for the right one, remember the golden rule: you should wear accessories that match your body. Opt for big items if you have a statuesque body, while petite ladies should opt for mini-accessories.

6. Pajama-style clothing


The pajama style that was popular several years ago among fashion mongers is on its way out. Say no to hoodies with cat ears – leave them for 15-year-old girls.

7. Jeans tucked into high-heeled ankle boots
