10 Fashion Trends You Should Retire In The New Year

It's funny what a decade can do to your feelings around clothes. You might have been all about the Marissa Cooper-approved low-rise flares and pointy pumps in the mid-2000s, but there's a reason you untagged all your photos from that era.

But there were a handful of fashion trends that made it big this year that should probably show themselves out at this point. You've served us well, $500 sweatshirt, but it's maybe time to retire.
