Peplums, Skinny Jeans, & All The Other Trends Going Out Of Style

We're of the firm belief that there's no "right" or "wrong" way to dress. After all, experimentation is key to finding a personal style. But, if you're in the middle of your spring-cleaning and feel stuck on which clothes to toss this season, Google has your answer. The company has compiled search data from millions of users into its spring 2015 trend report, a cheat sheet of sorts to the fastest-growing — and, for our purposes here, fastest falling  — fashion trends of the season. And, the findings might surprise you. 
According to Google, terms like "one-shouldered dresses," "peplum dresses," "string bikinis," and "vintage clothing" have suffered a steady decline in search over the past several years, making them among the pieces that are already well on their way out. Then, there are the seasonal trends that are expected to decline further, including corset dresses, custom T-shirts, and skinny jeans (confirming our prediction that the end of skinny denim is nigh). But, perhaps the most interesting data involves the "falling stars," Google's name for those trends that have quickly reached their peak — and are facing the consequences of overexposure. Among them are "scarf vests," "'90s jeans," and, arguably 2014's biggest trend, "normcore." It's unclear whether this means that people really are over the whole normcore thing, or if everyone already "gets" it, so googling is unnecessary. Either way, we'll be waiting to see how this data plays out on the street and on the runway.  In the meantime, see the rest of Google's spring 2015 trend report hereMore style scoop:
