Take it or Leave it? Top Trends of 2013
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

After wrestling with a serious case of the flu all last week (yup, right in time for the holidays!), I’m glad to say I’m back at this fashion game! Oh, and not a minute too soon!

It’s time to decide what trends we’re rolling with come 2014, and which ones we’ll leave in the 2013 reject pile.
Let’s have at it.


1. Crop Tops

It’s the trend that launched a thousand crunches and gym memberships. Sure, crop tops have been around for what seems like forever. But in 2013, the trend really got proper shine!

Whether it was thrown on for a day at the beach, or viewing hot art pieces in Miami, it girls couldn’t get enough of the midriff baring top.



It’s too hard to say goodbye. I’m keeping this one on deck!

2. Plaid

The men didn’t miss out on the action either.


J.Lo gave the trend a whirl with her Michael Kors coat.

3. White Pumps

White heels gave outfits the perfect pop without being over the top. Both casual and formal outfits were given a nice pop with a pair of snow white stilettos.





I know some of you can’t stand ‘em, but I’ll be bringing my white heels with me well into 2014!

4. Sheer Inserts/ Cutouts

It wasn’t a big ticket event if flesh wasn’t being served up for the photogs and fans alike. At every event, the envelope was continuously pushed further.

I’m just not here for celebs seeing which one can reveal more on the red carpet. Keep it cute, ladies!

5.  Black and White Graphic Print

Fashion Bomb readers were all over this trend, showing us how to rock it right.

How can you ever go wrong with black and white?

It’s going in my arsenal for 2014!

There you have it! What trends are you bringing into the new year? What trends are you leaving behind?

    I want the crop tops to stay for awhile I could live without plaid and white shoes could go …sheer will always be there …some sheer blouse are chic so it’s fine

  2. Natasha says:

    Doubling up on trends works best for me and my budget (eg. sheer plaid top…and now that I think about it, it’s black and white so there’s 3 trends in one shirt).

    Do look forward to the “oversize” trend coming in ’14. Bodycon was nice and will always be around but there’s something to be said for one’s imagination.

  3. southern says:

    the cut outs just became more and more ill-placed. leave em with the white shoes

  4. bhud says:

    not quite sure you can call plaid a “trend”. it us a fall/winter staple

    Plaid will never go anywhere and women will always wear white shoes

  7. Ummm says:

    Sure when it comes nursing homes…white shoes good bye

  8. madpet says:

    What about the tomboy look? They should leave that in 2013. I never jumped on the bandwagon of rocking Jordan shoes, baseball and skull caps over weave, and plaid shirts wrapped around my hips. I cringe at the thought of grown women rocking Jordan’s all because it’s a trend.

  9. Themissus says:

    I absolutely loathe white shoes!!! Some people were able to get it off but they will never be in my closet. Love the cutout trend and I’m renewing my gym membership because im toltally here for the crop tops too!

    So what do you wear to all white parties?

  11. Anonymous says:

    And women wear Jordan’s all the time it’s only a problem when they try to be flashy with it like hypebeasts thats when it looks childish

  12. Dédé says:

    I will keep crop top and white pumps.

  13. Giselle Williams-Thomas says:

    White pumps and black & white graphic prints for the win!!!

  14. binks says:

    DEATH to the white pumps!!! LOL, but honestly this whole season I can only say I liked 1 outfit on here that incorporated white pumps. Everything can stay but I will say that sheer/cutout should be placed on a trial by basis because it could easily go from a fashion do to a don’t.

    Crop tops can go and why are white pumps a thing?
