10 style trends that need to die in 2017


From Urwa Hocane to the #AnushMunib wedding and more, it seems every young Pakistani woman aspires to princess-hood, specifically of the Disney variety. Another year down, another list of trends that we'd gladly say good riddance to. Also read: 9 trends in Pakistan that we hope will go away in 2016 We're all for freedom of expression but sometimes, the choices we make betray us. Celebs and fads coerce us to do some pretty unfathomable things but regret is an emotion we're all too familiar and it's time to let bygones be bygones and move forward. Here's our R.I.P (fingers crossed) list of trends that need to just go away now that we've stepped into 2017: 1) Cold shoulder tops You know why the off shoulder trend became the mammoth that it has? Because no woman hates her shoulders. Also read: We tried to find winning red carpet looks at the Hum TV Awards. We failed In other words, it’s a style that flatters a wide range of body types, as compared to some other recent fads such as the dreaded crop tops.

Should we really be throwing a weird waist-frill into the mix? No. And yet every bridal week, we still have to suffer numerous peplum'd looks. What have we done to deserve this? Stoppit with the peplum. Just stop. 3) Chokers Reviving 90's trends isn't always a good idea. If you've ever worn a choker, you know it's itchy and uncomfortable. Let's be honest: it's more or less like a dog collar. Proof that not all trends deserve to make a comeback Black thin or thick fabric chokers with dangling pendants around your neck look great when you’re young and restless but this throwback trend isn't really for all ages. Dressing age-appropriate is half the sartorial battle and let us emphasise: you simply can't wear the same things in your 20s or 30s as you did in your teen years. Not because you won't look look good but just because it's a little ridiculous. 4) Instagram compliments In 2017, all we'd like to see is a little honestly.
