29 Trends You Need To Try Before You Die

We know plenty of women who defiantly reject for a popular trend ("I know it won't look good on me!" "I can't pull it off!") without at least giving it a test run. Just how do you know you can't wear a bodycon dress if you haven't tried it? What makes you knock a $100 T-shirt if you've never felt the inside of its silky goodness against your skin?
When it comes to fashion, Refinery29 readers will usually try anything once, and we're here to prove it, with our guide to style experiments you need to try. Of course, some trends are more challenging than others, but you ladies should be style pros, so we're rooting for you. Tell us in the comments: How many of these 29 trends have you tried already...and how many left do you have to go?
