Out: Houndstooth pattern
Although we have to agree that houndstooth print is one of the classic and preppy prints we get to see a lot in winter, it most definitely has lost the charm and feels outdated this year.

Out: Tweed fabric
Winter tends to feel a bit incomplete without the classic tweed, and while this fabric is most popularly known for its ability to add some texture to the look, it has started to feel a bit outdated now, which is the reason why we are seeing a major shift from tweed fabrics to leather items this year. From jackets and dresses to coats and pants, you can spot this trend in an array of chic and stylish options.
Out: Massive puffer jacket
In: Regular puffer jacket
There was a time when massive puffer jackets were a thing, and fashion people enjoyed wearing them, however, it’s not the same anymore. Massive puffer jackets had their time, but people have moved over them and are now leaning more towards regular or neutral puffer jackets that don’t feel massive or bigger than their actual size. If you are planning to buy the puffer, think practically and opt for the one that looks appropriate both color and size-wise.
Out: Colorful tights
In: Prep-school socks
Tights have always been one of the best ways to wear dresses in winter, and you can continue to wear colorful tights with your winter outfits for as long as possible, however, if you want to make your outfit look fully on-trend, you should probably stick to prep-school socks. Both ankle and knee-high socks are trending hard this year, wearing them with your outfits will add a preppy feel to the look.
