These 7 Major Trends Are NOT Going Away

Change, they say, is the only constant — especially in fashion, when trends are expected to rise, dominate the scene, and flame out in the span of six months. But sometimes, it's nice to see something endure the hype cycle. Some of our favorite trends from last year have not only withstood the test of time, they've thrived. There are a few that are just as relevant to today's spirit of personal style and active bodies as they were to yesterday's focus on nostalgia. But it'd be wrong to expect these trends to look exactly the same now as they did a year ago.

They're not so different that they constitute entirely new trends, but they're updated just enough that they might rekindle a dimming flame for you or convince you that it's finally time to try it out a particular look. Ahead, your favorite seven trends from 2014...and what they look like today, just one year later.
