Happy Monday everyone! I hope all had wonderful holiday time and were able to spend some time relaxing with loved ones. Has anyone started their after Christmas shopping yet?

The time has come for us to discuss all those trends that hit online, Instagram and, of course, FashionBombDaily throughout 2015. Which looks should leap into the New Year with us and which ones need to stay at the door on December 31st?

  1. Fringe

Everyone likes a little bit of fringe now and again, and celebrities definitely incorporated various types and amounts of the fabric into their outfits this year. We had already seen fringe follow us into the year from 2014, but who knew it was going to stay such a hit amongst the devotees? Whether it was just a little accent to an outfit or an entire theme, we saw all levels of fringe paired in different aesthetics.

Celebrities went for fringe-everything, including full-length skirts (also known as car-wash skirts), short minis, shoes and bags!  rihanna altuzarra spring 2015 show black fringed dress

Even our Mama Bear, Claire Sulmers, supported the fringe look this year:


When done correctly, I definitely think we didn’t see so much car wash as much as Bombshell in the making! For trends, it has to be done tastefully, and even though some missed the mark, you can’t deny others hit it right on the head! I think one can never go wrong with a statement fringe, which is good for you to know, considering it doesn’t look like fringe is going anywhere for the new year.


I think we’ll keep this one for a while and see where it goes. What do you think?


2. Monochrome

Monochromatic styles play with a tonal palette of consistent color, amplified by tones and textures.

Monochromatic outfits were out and about all throughout 2014, and celebrities welcomed in 2015 with flavorful ensembles that used the same primary color in an assortment of different finishes, shades and textures.

Yes, I just gave you three times where Solange ace’d monochromatic looks back to back. I’m not mad!

Even our own Bombshell readers tackled Monochromatic looks throughout the year:@etty_dale and @mife_dale looked adorable in pastel monochromatic suits!2 marie mag how do you wear spring 2015 monochromatic trend fashion bomb daily

I’m more inclined to keep Monochrome because the versatility and the options are endless! I don’t think this trend is going anywhere, but what do you think?

3. Crop Tops/Skirt Sets:Dressed in a white crop top and matching eyelet skirt, Meagan Good was spied at Comic Con in San Diego.Gorgeous model Ashley Graham flunted her curves in a crop to and pencil skirt set at the E! NYFW Kick-Off event.

We saw Crop Sets last year (and the year before that!), but this year’s take was slightly different. Instead of just the midi-skirt sets we saw in 2015, many celebrities opted for  longer-grazing skirts. Yes, we still saw midis here and there, but the crop-set got an updated look with a little more….coverage?1 Lala Anthony' s Ranbeeri Denim Launch Party T by Alexander Wang Ribbed Zip Gray Crop Top and Matching Pencil Skirt

Nicole Scherzinger stopped by SiriusXM Studios in NYC dressed in a crop top and matching skirt set. Cute!

I used to think the crop-top trend was exclusive to only certain girls with certain body shapes, but this year, celebrities revamped the trend to accommodate their bodies and personal needs, including longer-sleeves or lower-falling hemlines.Jada Pinkett Smith exited her London hotel in a wine hued crop top and matching skirt._draya-michele-jason-derulo-listening-party-naked-wardrobe-crop-top-skirt-gianmarco-lorenzi-heelskelly rowland blue and white striped crop tp and white mesh skirt

I loved the different fabrics used to create sets, and even how designers incorporated the trend in their attires for celebrities in more modest, but equally as chic ways.Kerry Washington's Disney ABC TCA Summer Press Tour Mary Katrantzou Fall 2015 Blue Green Embroidered Crop Top and Dress

Remember when Claire showed us an awesome crop-set that’s definitely every-day appropriate but can easily become high glam(with the fur trend)?Claire Sulmers J Bailey crop top sweatshirt and high slit skirt black designers

I think this trend offers a lot of versatility no matter the body type. Let’s take it with us into 2016!

4. Sheer DressesAngela Simmons's Gold Room Jason Boateng Sheer Lace Midi Dress and Christian Louboutin Yellow Embellished Pumps

Chrissy Teigen's sheer dress billowed in the breeze while out for dinner in Paris.Some say less is more, while others say less is just less. We definitely saw less this year with the continuation of sheer dresses worn on red carpet events as well as street style.3 V. Bozeman vs. Lindsay Lohan in Francesco Scognamiglio Spring 2015 Black Sheer Embroidered GownSevyn Streeter skewed sultry at the 2015 BET Awards - Debra Lee Pre Dinner in an embellished black sheer dressKhloe Kardashian's 1Oak Las Vegas Self Portrait Black Ribbed Sheer Panel Dress and Christian Louboutin Pumps

The interesting thing about sheer dresses were we saw just how variable the fabrication could be: some dresses had simple cuts throughout the dress to promote a sheer underlay, while others were completely bare-all and definitely needed some undergarments to accompany.Laura Govan went for bold and daring in a sheer maxi dress.As someone who can be a little more body-conscious in certain garments, I wasn’t too much a fan of the super-sheerness of some outfits, although I commended the daringness to wear it! However, I would wear something with perhaps a sheer cut on the hem or even the arms?

The MET Gala featured a few celebrities incorporating sheer trends into the theme of the night, with both Beyonce and Kim K showing sheer in a new and interesting perspective (that has a lot of people still talking).6 Alicia Quarles's New York City Donna Karan Black Sleeveless Artisan Applique Sheer Dress and L.A.M.B Fernley Gray Heels

Sheer has definitely been overdone. Let’s leave it in 2015!

5. Athleisure_9-Karrueche-Tran's-Athletes-vs.-Cancer-Charity-Football-Game-L.A.M.B-Payton-Cage-SandalsKourtney+Kardashian+Kourtney+Kardashian+Son-calabasas-yeezy-adidas-originals-apl

Last but certainly not least, we saw Athleisure take over everywhere. Pretty much, it’s workout clothing that’s nice enough to be worn through the day.Bella+Hadid+Gigi+Bella+Hadid+Out+Los+Angeles-rita-ora-adidas-alexander-wang-rihanna-puma-2Zendaya Coleman's Adigirl Adidas Red '03' Tank Top, Jeans, and Saint Laurent Sandals

 We definitely saw that fabrics became nicer, cuts and forms got a lot more chic, and sneakers/legging combos definitely became a staple outfit for mid-day runs and weekend getaways.Rita-Ora--Visits-Extra-adidas

We’ll also include the super comfy jersey’s that accompanies these looks as well as full-length sweatsuit combinations. This trend definitely wins an A in comfortability!3 Taraji P. Henson's Airport Adidas Originals XiloFloresta Printed Jacketpharrell-williams-helen-lascichanh-57th-annual-grammy-awards-adidas kat-graham-gym-los-angeles-alexander-wang-for-hm

I loved how celebrities tackled the trend in different ways, whether they were REALLY going to workout or hitting the red carpet with nothing but ease. Comfortable sneakers, panelled leggings, and comfortable jerseys or hoodies complimented every outfit and showed you don’t always need glam to look fabulous! I definitely think this is a trend that should stick around! Take it to 2016!


Well those are five trends that were definitely around for 2015. Which should we take into 2016 and which should we toss?
