One of the most popular topics in the fashion world is definitely the anti-trends of the season. It´s normal that everything has its time and then gets insignificant and forgotten. Fashion works the same cyclic way and trends we loved yesterday can be out tomorrow. This time such pieces like oversized coats, chokers, destroyed jeans, backpacks, fish-net stockings, and much more became anti-trends. I love fashion and get in touch with many of the newest trends and creative ways of styling, so, I cannot leave this topic without giving it a shout. Still, I do not agree 100% with the way how the anti-trends story goes and want to see it from a different angle. Here are some thoughts about why we should know which trends are out but still make fashion work our way.
Why do trends turn into anti-trends if they are still to find in almost every chain store?
All trends are presented during fashion weeks by world-known designers. These fashion events give a start for all famous influencers, fashion bloggers, and stars to put on the hottest styles of the season. Similar trends can be found in inexpensive chain stores only two-three months later. Some fashion experts say that the moment when the most popular trends are available in such middle- or low-cost stores, they already turn into anti-trends. Can you remember beautiful pajama-suits everyone loved last spring and summer? Still, they could not be found anywhere except designer stores. Chain stores offered them to their customers only months later. At that moment, no famous blogger or street-style star wore them anymore.
Why you shouldn´t follow the anti-trend list so precisely
Well, we all know that in case of purchasing trendy pieces instead of the classical or basic ones, we probably won´t wear them for a long time. Some of them will be trendy only a short time and won´t be missed by us. Other trends not only become our favorites but also show our personality, style of life, and preferences. They also provide us with the feeling of being self-confident and pretty. We all want to have and wear such pieces. Just imagine that your absolute favorite pieces become anti-trends. Would you want to stop wearing them or even worse, throw them away? Absolutely not, because they make you individual and unique. All the girls outside who try to follow each new trend in order to stay trendy by all means don´t understand that it has nothing to do with fashion and style. Instead of being unique and individual, they look like every second fashion victim. The real fashion and style mean the ability to create and show your own self, combining the pieces you love and associate you with and new trends. It makes us who we really are in a stylish and trendy way.
As for me, I love all the rock´n´roll, grungy, and biker stuff. I love wearing leather jackets, destroyed jeans, and other things. I don´t care whether they belong to the anti-trends of the season or not because I still will wear them. I would prefer wearing jeans with smaller holes or rips at some point, but I will never stop wearing or tossing away anything that is a part of me.

Of course, only you can decide which trends are your personal anti-trends and you want to wear further on. Finally, it´s the right combination which makes a great outfit, and that is the only thing that counts.
